Bill to Depose Trump Pushed by Media

Written by Joe Scudder

Reportedly there is growing support for a bill that would enable the vice president to depose Trump.

Is this bill to depose Trump a serious threat of just an alternative to Democrat impeachment porn? Hard to say. But NBC News claims that support for the bill is growing yet does not report on how much. If more signatures have been added to the bill, why not tell us how many new signatures there are?

NBC News reports, “Democratic Bill Lays the Groundwork to Remove Trump from Office.

House Democrats are on a mission to educate the American people about a little-known power of the 25th Amendment — the ousting of the president.

Led by freshman Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, a group of growing Democratic co-signers has put forth a bill that could force President Donald Trump from office if he were found mentally or physically unfit.

Although it was introduced in April, the bill has gained steam in the past week as Trump’s tweet storms have grown in ferocity.

“Given Donald Trump’s continued erratic and baffling behavior, is it any wonder why we need to pursue this legislation?” asked Rep. Darren Soto, D-Florida, a co-signer. “The mental and physical health of the leader of the United States and the free world is a matter of great public concern.”

If successful, the law would create an 11-member bipartisan commission known as the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity, which would medically examine the president and evaluate his mental and physical faculties.

The story goes on to explain this attempt to depose Trump by his use of Twitter. I remember Barack Obama being the first President to kill American citizens without trial (aka: murder them). Neither the Democrats or the media were outraged about that.
