Despite Democratic leadership’s request for its lawmakers to tone down talks of impeachment, 25 House members are crafting a bill that would create an “oversight” commission that has the power to declare the president incapacitated.
According to Maryland Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin — who is spearheading the efforts — they would then be able to effectively remove President Donald Trump from office under the 25th Amendment, Yahoo News first reported.
“In case of emergency, break glass,” he told the publication in an interview. “If you look at the record of things that have happened since January, it is truly a bizarre litany of events and outbursts.”
The Democratic calls for Trump’s impeachment were amplified after the president took aim at MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough on Twitter — having alleged Brzezinski was “bleeding badly” from her face during a trip to Mar-a-Lago around New Year’s Eve and blasting their show a “poorly rated.”
