CBS News reports via Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan that cabinet secretaries are discussing removing President Trump from office by invoking the 25th Amendment.
“JUST IN: “This is not news we deliver lightly,” @margbrennan says as she reports: Trump Cabinet secretaries are discussing invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump. Nothing formal yet presented to VP Pence. “I’m talking about actual members of the Cabinet,” she says”
“This is not news that we deliver lightly and I want to make clear that what I am explaining here is what is being discussed, whispered about, among some cabinet members today. And that is whether to move forward with formal proceedings to try to invoke the 25th Amendment. That would allow for the removal of President Trump from office and for Vice President Mike Pence to effectively become commander-in-chief for the remaining days of the Trump presidency. Uh, my sources are telling me it has not been formally presented to the Vice President. This is not about to happen, it is however being discussed right now. The very fact that the highest levels of the U.S. government and cabinet members are discussing this uh, is quite newsworthy, quite notable. Uh, and it underscores the moment that we are at. Uh, I just want to make clear this is not just political watchers, these are not just Democratic lawmakers who have been speculating all day that this should happen, I’m talking about actual members of the cabinet.”
