Recently a relatively unknown Democratic Congressman named Jamie Raskin, has started flapping his jaws about a bill he wants approved to have a committee thrown together to assess the mental health of the President in the hopes of being able to impeach President Trump. What makes this so hilarious is that Raskin’s is the BIGGEST liberal politician there is. Raskin’s is a self-proclaimed atheist. The Congressman is anti-gun, pro-abortion, pro-assisted suicide, a climate change believer and just so happens to be married to the Obama appointed former U.S. Deputy Secretary of the Treasury, Sarah Bloom. He is also quite close to Elizabeth Warren, go figure!
Let’s not forget that Raskin said in an interview that Trump’s Inaugural speech was the “meanest” in U.S. history. Being a “Constitutional Law” Professor I would think he would know that his backdoor tactics and false claims against the President will never fly, but then again he doesn’t seem too bright.
Raskin’s idiocy starts at about the .40 second mark. Watch:
According to Red State Watcher:
A Freshman Congressman has proposed a bill that could potentially remove President Trump from office. CNN Reported: Washington (CNN)Pointing to the outcry over President Donald Trump’s latest controversial tweets, freshman Rep. Jamie Raskin is urging his colleagues to get behind a bill that could potentially oust the President if he was mentally or physically unfit. The Maryland Democrat wants to create an 11-member commission made up of mostly physicians and psychiatrists — more formally called the “Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity.”
The panel would carry out a medical examination and determine whether the President was physically or mentally able to do the job. Two of the commission’s members would also be former high ranking officials, such as presidents, vice presidents, attorneys general or secretaries of state. It’s a provocative and long-shot effort, but Raskin is citing as his legal backup the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, which was adopted in 1967 after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to establish procedure in the case a president is incapacitated. About two dozen Democrats have signed on to the effort as of Thursday.
Raskin is zeroing in on one section of that constitutional amendment, which allows the vice president to assume powers if either the majority of the Cabinet or “such other body as Congress” finds that the President is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of office.” (The vice president would also have to agree to the assessment of the President’s abilities.) Raskin is proposing his commission to serve as that “body.”
The President could appeal the decision, and a whopping two-thirds of both the House and the Senate would then need to agree with the commission’s assessment in order to keep the President out of office. If two-thirds fail to agree, then the President would be allowed to resume the powers and duties of the office. CNN reached out to the White House for comment on the proposal and has not yet received a response. Raskin, a former professor of constitutional law, first introduced the bill in April and before this week it had 20 co-sponsors (all Democrats). Another three Democrats joined as of Thursday, according to Raskin’s office.
All of this talk about supposed insanity is coming from the same man who speaks at radical rallies against the President. Irony?
Get a grip pal because Pence has the same agenda as Trump and if you impeach one the other will simply continue on the path to MAGA! These Democrats are wasting this country’s time and money on all of these ridiculous committees in the first place.
