Mike Pence would sign off on invoking 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office: ‘Anonymous’ book

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence would support invoking the 25th Amendment to have President Donald Trump removed from office, according to a new book.

The forthcoming book, “A Warning,” purportedly written by an unnamed senior White House official, claims high-level aides are certain the vice president would back the plan to constitutionally remove Trump due to his mental incapacity, reported the Huffington Post.

The author, who wrote an anonymous essay for the New York Times describing a highly dysfunctional White House, describes an informal tally that White House officials took of Cabinet members who would sign off on a letter invoking Section 4 of the amendment, which maps out the process for replacing an incapacitated president with the vice president.

There was no doubt in the minds of those senior officials that Pence would be on board with the plan, the author wrote.

According to the Constitution, that letter would need to be signed by a majority of the Cabinet, delivered to the vice president for his signature and then submitted to Congress for approval.

A source provided excerpts to the Huffington Post under the condition that passages could not be quoted from directly ahead of the books publication on Nov. 19.

Published

At the latest coronavirus task force press briefing on Monday, President Donald Trump boasted that "every one" of the state governors in America are "very happy" with the job he is doing to help them combat coronavirus.

His claim is at odds with numerous governors who have complained that the federal government is not doing enough to coordinate the delivery of medical equipment and forcing them into bidding wars with other states.

Trump even tried to add later in the speech that Gov. J. B. Pritzker (D-IL) was "a happy man" even though "he may not be happy when he talks to the press."

There’s a horrifying history of leaders saying there’s a ‘light at the end of the tunnel’

Published

on

President Donald Trump rang out in an all-caps tweet Monday morning "LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!" It was a comment he echoed from his Sunday press conference saying that the U.S. is in the home stretch of the coronavirus crisis. He went on to say that he anticipated the country reopening in a few weeks.

The quote was one that Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty noted was one that many other leaders have used at frightening times.
