House Democrats are on a new mission – to educate Americans about the little-known power of the 25th Amendment to oust a President from office.
Led by Representative Jamie Raskin of Maryland, a group of Democratic co-signers has put forward a bill that could force President Donald Trump from office if he is found mentally or physically unfit for the job.
Although it was introduced back in April, the bill has gained momentum in the past week as Trump’s tweet storms have grown in their mean-spirited anger.
“Given Donald Trump’s continued erratic and baffling behavior, is it any wonder why we need to pursue this legislation?” said Representative Darren Soto, a Democrat from Florida.
“The mental and physical health of the leader of the United States and the free world is a matter of great public concern.”
The law would create an 11-member bipartisan commission known as the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity, that would proceed to medically examine the President and evaluate his mental and physical faculties.
