Nancy Pelosi is trying to remove President Trump from power in a shocking scheme.
What she’s trying to do is completely illegal.
Nancy Pelosi presented the military with this one horrifying demand.
There are two legal ways of removing the president from office: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
While the Democrats are moving forward with impeachment, it’s not going to succeed. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stated that the Senate won’t even consider the Democrats’ article of impeachment until Joe Biden’s inauguration.
But Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi seems to think that she has the authority to take away power from the President.
Pelosi asked the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley if he could strip Trump’s access to nuclear codes.
Pelosi, according to ABC, was seeking to prevent “‘an unstable president’ from accessing the nuclear launch codes or initiating military hostilities before he is out of office in 12 days.”
Trump is the first President since Jimmy Carter who hasn’t started an overseas conflict and has received three Nobel Peace Prize nominations for his work to obtain peace in the Middle East.
“She revealed the startling development in a letter to Democratic colleagues Friday morning, a day after she called on Vice President Mike Pence to immediately remove Trump from office by invoking the 25th Amendment and threatening a second impeachment of Trump if Pence failed to act,” ABC noted.
“This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike,” the House Speaker said in the letter. “The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.”
Pelosi is undermining our democracy by not respecting the separation of powers that the Constitution clearly lays out.
“Speaker Pelosi initiated a call with the Chairman,” said a statement from Col. Dave Butler, a spokesperson for Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “He answered her questions regarding the process of nuclear command authority.”
Trump is still the head of the American military and to try and strip him of his authority while he is still President is irresponsible in the extreme.
American enemies like China, Russia, Iran and North Korea could see this as an opportune time to attack America because of Pelosi’s thoughtless words.
There are far greater threats to America than President Trump’s Twitter account.
But the Democrats are so wrapped up in attacking Republicans that they can’t see the big picture.
