California Rep. Jackie Speier is continuing to point to President Trump's comments on North Korea and the violence in Charlottesville, Va., as evidence he's unfit and should be removed from office under the 25th Amendment.
"There's actually a growing mountain of evidence that the president has been very erratic, has shown a mental instability," Speier, a Bay Area Democrat, told CNN on Tuesday evening. "There has been a lot of people behind the scenes talking about his instability, in Congress, for some time now."
The section of the 25th Amendment in the Constitution that Speier cited has never been used. It allows the vice president and president's Cabinet to inform Congress that a president is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” and should be removed. A two-thirds vote from Congress would be needed to confirm the Cabinet's judgment if the president does not agree with the Cabinet's recommendation.
