Trump’s Own Cabinet Considering 25th Amendment To Impeach, Bar 2nd Term

Following the chaos that unfolded at the Capitol building Wednesday, reports are circling that members of President Trump’s own cabinet, as well as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, are considering invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office and, more importantly, bar him from seeking a second term in office.

CBS News, among others, reported that cabinet members have been discussing invoking the amendment that is reserved for when the president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

The 25th provides the vice president and ‘a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress’ the ability to remove the president from office.

Impeachment under the 25th amendment would effectively bar Trump from being able to seek a second term in office in 2024.

Democratic representatives have sent a letter to Mike Pence requesting that he invoke the amendment, according to NBC News.

 The Democrats wrote “Even in his video announcement this afternoon, President Trump revealed that he is not mentally sound and is still unable to process and accept the results of the 2020 election.”

“President Trump’s willingness to incite violence and social unrest to overturn the election results by force clearly meet this standard,” the letter continued, adding “so too are his recent tweets, which Twitter has since deleted, saying the election was ‘stolen’ and that today’s riots ‘are the things and events that happen.”

“For the sake of our democracy, we emphatically urge you to invoke the 25th Amendment and begin the process of removing President Trump from power,” the letter concludes.

The notion is also being pushed by prominent lobbyists.

The National Association of Manufacturers head Jay Timmons stated that “Vice President Pence, who was evacuated from the Capitol, should seriously consider working with the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to preserve democracy.”

“The outgoing president incited violence in an attempt to retain power, and any elected leader defending him is violating their oath to the Constitution and rejecting democracy in favor of anarchy,” Timmons said, adding “This is not law and order. This is chaos. It is mob rule. It is dangerous. This is sedition and it should be treated as such.”

While the 25th is being secretly debated in Congress, former US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis went one further by suggesting that President Trump should face exile.

For four years, Trump opponents have been calling for the 25th amendment to be invoked, with the likes of CNN even advocating for a new amendment to the Constitution to prevent Trump or anyone like him from ever taking office again.

Reports are also now circling that multiple White House officials are planning to resign.

US Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger already quit, and was followed by Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Matthews:

In an interview with Sean Hannity Thursday, President Trump urged that America cannot take much more of the Biden administration’s policies, urging that central American countries are being allowed to “empty their prisons into the U.S.”

Trump said that “All they (had) to do was leave (the border) alone. The wall was almost complete… one thing you didn’t see was drugs. Drugs were at their lowest point, in particular Fentanyl, which is a brutal drug. It was stopped, it was at a level we had not seen in a long time.”

“Now it’s coming in at levels that we have never seen: Three, four, five times more than we ever had coming in… There’s something wrong,” Trump added, further declaring “You wouldn’t believe you could even say this, but somebody doesn’t love our country.”

“When they allow this to happen to our country, we have hundreds of thousands of people pouring in every two weeks,” Trump emphasised, adding that Central American countries are “emptying their prisons into the United States.”

“Some of the toughest people on earth are being dumped into the United States because they don’t want them. They don’t want to take care of them for the next 40 years. These people that are the roughest prisoners, anywhere, are being dumped into the United States for us to take care of them,” the former President explained.

“What are they doing? They are destroying our country,” an exasperated Trump asked.

Elsewhere in the interview, Trump commented on the Biden administration targeting parents who do not want their children being subjected to vaccine mandates and the teaching of critical race theory in schools.

“The country can’t take much more of it, they can’t do it,” Trump said, adding “Those school parents — those are parents that love their country and they love their children. And they don’t want all of this nonsense that’s being fed to their children. They just don’t want it. And, you know, they are trying to make them out to be terrorists.”

    Video: Trump Slams “Incompetent” Biden Afghanistan Debacle; Allies Confirm It’s Almost Certain He’ll Run In 2024

    “We were embarrassed in front of the world”

    In an interview with Newsmax Tuesday, President Trump slammed the Biden administration’s calamitous Afghanistan withdrawal, labelling it “the most incompetently handled withdrawal or anything else in the history of our country.”

    “We’re embarrassed in front of the world,” Trump continued, adding “I don’t think our country has ever seen a period like this, how badly we’re doing, and then you take a look at the border. And worst of all is what took place in Afghanistan.”

    Elsewhere in the interview, Trump said it was incredible that Afghans that were taken out aboard US planes were not vetted.

    “It was just revealed today that they didn’t vet the people. They didn’t vet any of these people coming out. They’re vetting them now they’re already out,” Trump warned.

    Trump also slammed the decision to leave Americans stranded, stating “Can you imagine getting the military out, before you get your citizens, American people out? They took the military out first. We would have taken it out last.”

    The 45th President also blasted the abandonment of military equipment, which has fallen into Taliban hands.

    “Brand new Apache, the most incredible weapon you’ve ever seen, the Apache helicopters, brand new – brand new out of the box, as they say – and they got ’em,” Trump said adding “Now they have one of the best-equipped armies in the world, can you believe it? From having knives to having the best planes and tanks and trucks.”

    ‘Why didn’t we take it out? It’s not even conceivable we didn’t take this stuff out,” Trump urged, adding “We left them airplanes, helicopters, why didn’t we fly that stuff out? Billions of dollars.”

    Watch:

    Meanwhile, Joe Biden was heckled in New Jersey with locals calling him “despicable” another yelling “resign, you tyrant!” and a third yelling “You leave Americans behind!” 

    Watch:

    Reports have detailed that close allies of Trump believe it is almost certain that he will run against Biden in 2024.

    Trump’s former campaign spokesman Jason Miller told reporters “I would say somewhere between 99 and 100 percent. I think he is definitely running in 2024.”

    “I had a good conversation with him last night. I’m going to go see him in another couple days here,” Miller added.

    Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan was also captured on video responding to the question ‘do you think Trump will run again’ with the answer “I know so”.

    “I talked to him yesterday,” Jordan said, adding “he’s about ready to announce after all of this craziness in Afghanistan.”

    Bush Era NSA Head Says Its A “Good Idea” To Send Unvaccinated Trump Supporters To Afghanistan

    Refers to MAGA supporters as ‘Our Taliban’

    Former head of the NSA and the CIA during the George W. Bush presidency, General Michael Hayden, declared that he thinks it would be a “good idea” to send unvaccinated supporters of President Trump to die in Afghanistan.

    Hayden, who infamously declared that the Fourth Amendment “changed” on September 11, 2001, and went on to oversee mass surveillance of Americans at the NSA while the invasion of Afghanistan was implemented, made the comments on Twitter.

    Hayden responded to a post stating “Can we send the MAGA wearing unvaxxed to Afghanistan, no use sending that plane back empty?”

    Hayden also retweeted a picture labelling Trump ‘MAGA’ supporters as ‘Our Taliban’:

    Hayden has previously compared Trump’s border policy to Nazi death camps:

    Meanwhile, the current generals at the Pentagon admitted at the weekend via Press Secretary John Kirby that they are “not familiar” with US Embassy advice that American citizens should not travel to the Kabul airport at this time, despite it being widely reported in the media.

    Kirby also admitted that the Pentagon doesn’t know how many Americans are trapped in the country.
