Rep. Collins introduces resolution to push for Pelosi removal as House speaker: ‘Lack of mental fitness’

Share:

WASHINGTON, DC- A new congressional resolution was introduced that highlighted the need for Nancy Pelosi’s resignation.

Rep. Doug Collins and Rep. Andy Biggs introduced the resolution after claiming that the Speaker of the House lacked the “mental fitness” necessary to serve in her role. 

Collins spoke to Fox News about the downfall of Pelosi saying:

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession,”

The line that Collins references is the line of presidential succession.

Pelosi’s role as the Speaker of the House makes her second in line for the presidency should something happen to the president. The speaker follows only the vice president in the line.

Having such an essential role in the government means that the speaker needs to be constantly ready to fill in a void if needed. 

Fox News also obtained a draft of the resolution on Monday which outlined that Pelosi “is unable to adequately serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives and should therefore be removed from her position.”

The reasoning behind this claim begins with Pelosi’s attempts at catching President Trump doing something incorrect or illegal. The resolution stated that the speaker:

“has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations” 

The representatives then provides an example of this referencing President Trump’s impeachment in 2019:

“On October 31, 2019, Speaker Nancy Pelosi oversaw the first party-line vote to begin an impeachment inquiry into a president in the history of our country.”

 The Georgia and Arizona congressmen mentioned other examples of Pelosi’s clear prejudice toward the president including when the speaker “ripped up the State of the Union speech.”

This example dates back to President Trump’s 2020 State of the Union Address in February. Immediately after the president finished his speech Pelosi tore apart her copy “before the American people.”

The pair also included that, while in office, the speaker has suffered a decline in her mental health:

“Over her tenure of her speakership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has started to demonstrate a decline in mental fitness, calling into question her ability to adequately serve the House of Representatives and the American people.”

While doing an interview with ABC News Pelosi seemed slightly worse for wear and “appeared confused and exhibited bizarre behavior” according to the congressmen. The representatives that the speaker could be seen “blurting out randomly ‘Good Morning, Sunday morning.'”

The last example given by the congressional members of Pelosi’s ineptitude goes back to September. The Speak of the House scheduled an appointment at a local salon to get her hair done. Pelosi took her mask off during her time at the salon multiple times, violating mask wearing mandates.

The resolution explained that the speaker:

“Visited a shuttered hair salon in San Francisco where she received a blow-out without wearing a mask in violation of San Francisco’s laws concerning the coronavirus;”

Then, rather than taking responsibility for violating the mask wearing mandates, and stay at home orders, the speaker proceeded to “cast blame on the salon’s owner for ‘setting her up.’”

Now, the resolution seems to be garnered a bit of support from other representatives. On Friday afternoon representative Collins tweeted out a thank you to Representatives Jody Hice, Ted Bud, Jeff Duncan, and Paul Gosar for their support on the legislation.

The timing of the resolution is quite comical considering Pelosi has been plotting to use the 25th amendment to oust President Trump from office. Why is Pelosi attempting to remove the president? She claims that he lacks the fitness necessary for his job.

Pelosi suggests potential plot to remove Trump from office before election: ’…talking about the 25th Amendment’

During a recent weekly press briefing, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) hinted at a discussion that would be taking place about the 25th Amendment.

As she fielded questions about negotiations on coronavirus relief funds, Pelosi said to reporters:

“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”

Allegedly, Democrats and the few never-Trump supporters have been talking about using the 25th amendment to remove President Trump from power since the first day he took office back in 2017. The 25th Amendment reads:

Section 1- In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President;

Section 2- Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress;

Section 3- Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged. by the Vice President as Acting President and;

Section 4- 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.

When Trump announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, social media accounts were abuzz with the suggestion of using the 25th Amendment to remove him from officeUSA TODAY justice and legal affairs reporter Kristine Phillips said:

“It’s too soon to talk about the president’s demise, but it’s not too soon to talk about the 25th Amendment. Trump’s symptoms could get worse and could affect his thinking.”

CBS-affiliated WUSA9 tweeted:

“The 25th Amendment helps accommodate for situations when a president gets too sick.”

Author Paul Brandus noted:

“The amendment was last invoked in 2007 when then-President George W. Bush briefly transferred his authority to Vice President Dick Cheney, while Bush underwent on colonoscopy.”

NPR Politics tweeted:

“What happens if the president is incapacitated? The 25th Amendment charts a course.”

Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera stated:

“25th Amendment possible. @VP has to be ready to be “acting president” under Sec 3 of the 25th Amendment. The rest of us have to stay calm & carry on.”

Others pointed out that jumping to discussions involving invoking the 25 Amendment under the current circumstances is completely absurd. Political operative Ford O’Connell tweeted:

“The level of nonsense flying around in the media is beyond outrageous. People are talking about the 25th Amendment, the nuclear arsenal and the line of succession and it is not even 3:00 PM ET. Get a grip folks, it’s too much, especially for a Friday.”

In the most extreme scenario being promoted, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is depicted as possibly taking over as president. Though the president has been discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and appears to be recovering rapidly, Pelosi has taken it upon herself to elevate social media chatter to a plan of action. 

This is just one of many times Pelosi has tried to either impeach President Trump or take him out office.
