POWER GRAB - Nancy Pelosi has unveiled her 25th amendment plan to oust the president from office after she accused Donald Trump of being "in an altered state."
The House Speaker released the plan during a press conference on Friday.
Pelosi mentioned that due to the drugs that Trump has been on since he was diagnosed with Covid last week, "medical professionals say this could have an impact on judgment."
The comments come less than 24 hours after the Democrat questioned if the president would be thinking clearly due to the medication.
"The president is, shall we say, in an altered state right now," Pelosi said on Bloomberg TV. "I don’t know how to answer for that behavior."
However, on Friday the Speaker insisted that this is not a personal attack
The 25th Amendment comes into play if the president of the United States cannot fulfill their duties.
If President Donald Trump is unable to do his job, he sends a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Pro Tempore of the Senate Chuck Grassley explaining he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. “Vice President Mike Pence then becomes acting president.
When the president is ready to resume authority, the president sends another letter.
