Nancy Pelosi has introduced legislation to create a commission that could oust the President from office is they were not mentally or physically fit for it via the 25th Amendment.
Pelosi stated that it wasn’t about Trump, because the legislation wouldn’t take effect until after Trump leaves office.
This revelation from Pelosi is exactly what President Trump and the White House pounced on. Pointing out it is part of Pelosi’s plan to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris should Joe Biden win. The maneuvering being precipitated by the fact that Joe Biden is “out of it.”
According to Fox News:
The White House pounced on Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s 25th Amendment talk Friday, hitting her for her own mental fitness for office and also suggesting she was trying to target Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Trump, who is recovering from coronavirus, took to Twitter immediately after Pelosi’s announcement that Congress is considering legislation on how to remove a president from office and accused her of actually targeting Biden should he win in November.
Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who is also infected, said it’s really Pelosi who is unfit for office.
She tweeted out a bizarre moment in a television interview where Pelosi responded to a question about potentially impeaching Trump again with: “Good morning, Sunday morning.”
The only one who needs the 25th Amendment is Nancy Pelosi herself.
“Good Morning, Sunday Morning,” she bizarrely blurts out after suggesting impeaching President @realDonaldTrump for exercising his Art. II, Sec. II power!
Stop projecting, Nancy! ⬇️pic.twitter.com/QXBVhKqwLd

Pelosi stated that Trump will face his judgment from the voter and not the proposed commission. It is unclear if the commission will also look at the mental and physical acuity of Speakers of the House as well.
