Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced she will be holding a press conference Friday morning with Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) to announce legislation to create a 25th Amendment Congressional commission. The 25th Amendment authorizes such a committee to be formed by Congress to study whether to remove the President, in this case President Trump, from office.
Pelosi previewed the announcement during a press conference Thursday morning.
Pelosi said in an interview with Bloomberg TV later on Thursday that Trump is in an “altered state” (following his infection last week by the COVID-19 China coronavirus and treatments to fight off the virus.)
The press conference will be held at 10:15 a.m. EDT Friday at the Capitol to discuss the Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office Act to “help ensure effective and uninterrupted leadership in the highest office of the Executive Branch on government.”
