House Members Planning to Determine If Nancy Pelosi Is Mentally Fit For Office After 25th Amendment Stunt
During an interview on Thursday with Mark Levin, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced that he and a group of House representatives were crafting a way forward to determine if Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is mentally fit for office.
The announcement by McCarthy came after the Speaker announced that she was gathering a commission to determine if President Trump is physically and mentally capable of being president.
“I’m not talking about it today except to tell you, if you want to talk about that, we’ll see you tomorrow,” Pelosi said during a press conference. “But you take me back to my point.”
“Mr. President, when was the last time you had a negative test before you tested positive? Why is the White House not telling the country that important fact about how this made a hot spot of the White House?” Pelosi said while referring to how Trump contracting the coronavirus.
During the interview with Levin, McCarthy unloaded on the Speaker, saying that her mental state doesn’t seem to be well.
“To even bring this up when you’re talking 27 days before an election,” McCarthy said. “You know she’s second in line right after the vice president.”
“It really brings into question her own mental capacity to be Speaker of the House,” McCarthy said as he noted that the Speaker should be held to the same standard as the President.
“Are you going to recommend the same commission take a look at her mental capacity?” Levin questioned. “Does she have to submit any kind of records about her health? Mental health?”
“If she’s now saying they should have a commission to do that with the president?” McCarthy replied. “Shouldn’t you do that with all three people who are in line for the presidency?
“Shouldn’t she have to submit to the same test that she’s trying to claim?” McCarthy said.
“I am getting together with a number of members — and can tell you there are people on the other side that have raised this question as well,” McCarthy shockingly stated. “We’re going to get together; find out ways that we can craft something.”
“She knows this will not be a reality,” McCarthy said as he noted that it takes two-thirds votes in the House and the Senate to remove a president using the 25th Amendment. “This is just another attempt to attack our democracy.”
“It’s Nancy Pelosi who is insane,” Levin said. “It’s Nancy Pelosi who is mentally ill.”
Section four of the 25th amendment says: “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
