CNN: House Judiciary Committee Democrats urge Pence to invoke 25th Amendment

House Judiciary Committee Democrats urge Pence to invoke 25th Amendment

From CNN’s Manu Raju

Members of the House Judiciary Committee are urging Vice President Mike Pence and members from President Trump’s Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to the US Constitution and remove Trump from office, according to a statement released Wednesday night by the committee members.

“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. 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,’” the members said in the statement.

CNN reported earlier that some Cabinet members are holding preliminary discussions about invoking the 25th Amendment, according to a well placed GOP source.

4. Then why is Trump making arrangements right now for his imminent departure?

Of course he accepts his defeat. His incitement of a coup occurs WHILE he is planning his departure. He KNOWS that he's defeated. He's inciting a coup to REVERSE the election, given that the election ALREADY tells him the truth.

Were he in complete fantasy, he'd deny that the election was controversial at all, and that the official numbers pointed to his victory. That's the logic of psychosis. HE HAS ACCEPTED DEFEAT. He's trying to reverse the defeat, knowing that defeat is a fact. He's NOT psychotic. He's a criminal sociopath.
