REPORT: Members Of Congress “Holding Secret Conversations” About Removing Donald Trump From Office
Trump’s ticking clock towards impeachment is starting to get a bit faster. Reports suggest that members of Congress are starting to have “private conversations” about removing Trump from office.
Last Week, Evan Osnos of the New Yorker published an analysis on two ways. Republicans could remove Trump from office.
They could impeach him through Congress, or invoke the 25th amendment and declare him mentally unfit to be president. But it’s not just guesswork or hypothesis. As Osnos said on MSNBC’s The Last Word:
“This is a conversation that people are having around the dinner table, it’s one people have at the office, members of Congress are talking about it in private and the question is very simple: is this a president who is able to do the job and is able to go the distance?
“This is a president who is beset by doubts of a completely different order of any president we’ve seen as long as we’ve been looking at this question.
“The truth is that there are people having an active conversation about whether or not he’ll last.”
And Trump will want to tread lightly. Osnos says that the president could face a “constitutional crisis” if he doesn’t cooperate with the several investigations into his ties with Russia.
It looks like one way or another, Trump won’t last too much longer.
