GOP senator opted for private briefing on the amendment allowing for removal of the president from office: report

Yale School of Medicine’s Law and Psychiatry Division professor Dr. Bandy Lee was summoned to Capitol Hill in November to brief lawmakers on the 25th Amendment and President Donald Trump’s mental state, Politico reports.

On Dec. 5 and 6, Dr. Lee warned lawmakers, “he’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.”

The private briefings included a Republican senator who Dr. Lee declined to identify.

Dr. Lee edited the bestselling book The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, featuring the work of 27 psychiatrists, psychologists and mental health experts to assess President Trump’s mental health.

“One senator said that it was the meeting he most looked forward to in 11 years,” Lee recalled. “Their level of concern about the president’s dangerousness was surprisingly high.”

The 25th Amendment, along with impeachment, are the two legal mechanisms to remove Trump from office prior to the end of his term in January 2021.

Mental health professionals have hosted nationwide town hall meetings to warn about Trump’s mental state, citing a “duty to warn” of violent threats.

Following President Donald Trump’s Twitter threats against North Korea, Lee’s group demanded Twitter take “immediate action” and suspend Trump’s Twitter account.

Trump’s staff keeps undercutting his comments about his payroll tax plot: report

Published

President Donald Trump has claimed that everything will be fine with the removal of the payroll tax, which funds the Social Security trust fund, because he will just throw money in from the general fund. But according to Trump staff, he's confused.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that businesses aren't sure what to do because it would cause more difficulty on their side. The idea, however, isn't a law and it likely won't be enforced until Congress passes such a law, which isn't likely to happen since both sides oppose it.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dares Trump to compare grades — and says the ‘loser has to fund the Post Office’

Published

on

During an interview with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo on Thursday, President Donald Trump took aim at Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), saying that she was a "poor student" at "I won't say where she went to school, it doesn't matter."

"This is not even a smart person," Trump added.

Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude from Boston University with a degree in political science and economics.

The attack had parallels to when Trump claimed in 2011, baselessly, that he had heard President Barack Obama had been a "terrible student" — even though Obama had run the Harvard Law Review.

Trump adviser Larry Kudlow: ‘We don’t want to have’ voting rights protections get through Congress

Published

on

On CNBC News Thursday, President Donald Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow said that the administration does not want protection of voting rights to pass as part of the coronavirus stimulus package.

"So much of the Democratic asks are really liberal left wishlists we don't want to have," said Kudlow. "Voting rights, and aid to aliens, and so forth. That's not our game."

Talks between Congress and the White House are currently at an impasse. The administration is refusing to support outlays greater than $1 trillion, and the president has explicitly demanded there be no funding for the Postal Service, to keep voting by mail as difficult as possible.
