MSNBC Wants Republicans To Utilize The 25th Amendment

Host Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC’s “Deadline,”  questioned why Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) have yet to begin a hearing on removing President Donald Trump under the 25th amendment after the “The New York Times” anonymous op-ed written by a senior White House official.
Wallace said, “I have never in my life read something like that from someone who is a political appointee to a sitting president, saying until one way or another it’s over. What are those ways?”

She added, “Why hasn’t that started? Why not today? Why won’t Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell convene a hearing today on the 25th Amendment?”

She closed, “This seems like the kind of writing that would drive all these men, and they’re all men, unfortunately, no offense, into their offices to figure out what to do. You now have whistleblower at the highest level of Trump administration, writing in “The New York Times” for publication that there were early whispers within the cabinet — cabinet secretaries talked about invoking the 25th Amendment. This seems to justify immediate congressional hearings to find out who they were. I would haul up every single cabinet secretary. You have to protect an anonymous source, but I would haul up political appointees from every agency and ask who talked about invoking the 25th Amendment and what did you see?”

    The would be a very large resistance to this. By the right. Msmbc are out of their gourds.

    What a crock of homegrown Liberal BS. They take what is probably a low level staffer’s article, publish it in a TDS dominated Uber-Liberal, Deep State supporting publication, and suggest it is “truth” as they wish it to be. The fact is that this administration is doing exactly what the people voted for it to do. After 8 years of a disatrous, dishonest, divisive, nation killing administration, the US is finally compensating for decades of “Top Down” failed big government policies. There is, however, much left to do, and Liberal calls for impeachment or disinguous use of the 25th amendment not withstanding, the entrenched proffesional politicians of both sides have lost touch with reality, in mine and many more citizens opinion.

    Support the “Convention of the States” initiative if you really want to change America back to the “founders original vision”. It’s way past time to boot proffesional politicians from office, return the power to the states under “Federalist” principals as intended, and protect our economy from the idiots selling our childrens and grandchildrens future from crushing debt and unrepresented, and unsupported federal over-reach!

      Just a few Questions ! Should President Trump, declare Marshall Law for the DC area? Should he bring in military, arrest very many “deep state” TRAITORS? After all, the liberals have an anonymous op-ed
      article that they think merits impeachment. Shouldn’t a “SUSPECTED” treasonous action carry the same merits and result in confinement in jail until the truth is found? Sounds like something Muller has done recently. We could fly ALL suspects plus Muller and his entire staff out to ALCATRAZ for the duration. Of course we could have a private cell in cell block D ( ). One for MAD MAX, one for Pelosi, plus one for each of the Clintons and one each for the Obama’s

  • For what reason would these IDIOTS want to invoke the 25th amendment? Because of some bull**** published by a rag? You Democrats should take a deep breath, and rethink your priorities! You have offered NOTHING to We the People as an agenda to better our country. Your only mission is to destroy Trump! IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK!! Your fruitless efforts are truly making you a laughing stock of this nation!! As an aside, you should NOT allow Obama and Clinton to be representatives of your failed party, they are criminals, and both are an embarrassment to our nation, and our ideals!!

    It would seem that Nicolle Wallace is aliterate and unable to read the Constitution in an exegetical manner. It seems to be a condition afflicting many liberals.

    Section 4 of the 25th Amendment DOES NOT give Congress the power to initiate such a procedure. The first sentence reads, “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.

    As Congress hasn’t provided BY LAW any other method, it’s up to the VP and a majority of the principal officers of the executive departments to initiate the procedure. Anything else would be a coup d’etat and sedition.

    • Felipe Gomsz Jr.

      That’s exactly what they are doing! Coup d’etat.

      • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

        You’re quite right.

  • Joe Gajewski

    Who in their right mind would believe an anonymous piece of drivel that was probably written by some Pelosi,. Schumer, staff member. The NY Times has sunk to a new level by publishing this BS as fact not fiction. Same for Woodward with his book of fiction, with every accusation being denied as out right lies. He was a one shot wonder and got hungry for the limelight again. The libs better get used to the fact that Donald Trump is the President, NOT Hillary.

    • drew

      Excellent Joe Gajewski

    • azabigail

      Very true.

    • Felipe Gomsz Jr.

      They can’t! They’ve never been disciplined ever in their lives. Probably no daddy in the home. Alway’s got what they wanted throwing tantrum’s pissing and moaning! So they grow up with the same attitude. If mommy it daddy were to spank or yell at their kids they be out in jail and their kid’s taken away by those Commie Principal , Vice Principal , Teacher’s and Professor’s with the help of those campus Police too! You raise your voice you get the bracelets and go to jail! Now this is the product of that crap! Whahhh! Whahhh! What!

  • Shamus McQuade

    The Nazis would be proud to see how the media machine has become a part of the Socialists scheming that you see in todays USA. The current article is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. How cute, anonymous, yea right…..right out of the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook that parallel Nazi techniques used by joseph goebbels of the nazi propoganda machine in the 1930’s. Its time for a war, Time to start a revolution to kill off the vermin and insects that have infected our government. Hey these Antifia and spin off groups of liberal brats want violence, hey I say give em all they want. But be careful for what you wish for especially when you have no physical or mental ability to sustain a street war. You will all die

    • drew

      excellent Shamus

    • Jason Brum

      Very well put Mr. McQuade, we’ve had enough of their stupid Childishness crap.

  • florida3guy

    The liberal MSM is the enemy of the American people. That means you Nicolle Wallace!

  • Ronald Hagler

    Why does this reporter not ask Congress to invoke The “Expulsion” rule against Representative Waters for her role in threatening GOP members of Congress and their familes?

    (Expulsion is the most serious form of disciplinary action that can be taken against a Member of Congress. Article 1, Section 5, Paragraph 2 of the United States Constitution provides that “Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member.” The processes for expulsion differ somewhat between the House of Representatives and the Senate.)

    • Felipe Gomsz Jr.

      You don’t get it? It’s all just a one sided attack!

      • Ronald Hagler

        Oh, I get it. What I do not understand is why so many people do not get it, as is evidenced by the number of votes cast for Hillary Clinton and that Pelosi and Waters continue to be re-elected. How stupidly dense must one be not to see the Democrats for what they are and what their agenda is?

        • Felipe Gomsz Jr.

          Point made. Exactly! Why do these moron’s after seeing and hearing these loser’s speaches? Still vote for them? They are retarded and rubber room ready! What else can it be?

  • Ronald Hagler

    I see no provisions in the 25th Amendment which states that a sitting President can be discharged of his duties because the homosexual community, the socialist left, liberals and Democrats do not like him/her. So, why would Congress waste time and tax payers money in convening over a “Non-Issue”?

  • Ronald Hagler

    It seems that liberals, including those seated on Federal Court benches, have forgotten that The Constitution is a contract between government (state) and the people; not between individual citizens!

    • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

      More importantly, the Constitution is a contract between the federal government and the states.

  • JDWemhaner

    If this is really what N. Wallace was saying, but many of the others are not. Think for a second about this being a “made up” piece – – the NYT or any newspaper would be risking too much to make up something like that on their own. The news will be out soon who wrote it because too many sources are looking, and that includes the reporting side of NYT, who desperately want to know. This is from an insider and is just like many of the things insiders have been saying: Priebus, Tillerson, Kelly, Bannon, Omarosa all have similar stories. While someone like Omarosa has zero credibility, the shear number of people saying: Trump’s erratic nature, his relative ignorance, his inability to learn, as well as what they consider his dangerous views. Even John Dowd, Trump’s former lawyer about Russia probe, said Trump should not testify because “he was incapable of giving simple factual answers.”

  • Raymond Marine

    MSNBC is not a real TV Station. It is just a Liberal Propaganda Mouthpiece.

  • Anvil6

    Let me completely clear: No.

    They are demanding removal of a sitting President based upon allegations allegedly made by “a senior staff member” who “wishes to conceal his or her identity”.

    In other words, the entire story – even the very existence of a rouge senior staffer doing what the NYT printed – may well be a complete work of fiction. ANYBODY – even a writer from the NYT – could have “gone thru an intermediary” to plant the story (and get Trump to chase a non-existent traitor on his senior staff).

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    Why would they use Amendment 25 on Trump?He has improved this nation.
    He has everything running GREAT in America. Breaking records on the economy.
    They should start with ALL of the Dims in the Senate and Congress first.
    Most of them seem more unhinged than anyone.They need psych evals. ASAP!
    Booger, MAXI Waterhead, Rodeo Wilson, Harass, Necrosi,Pocahontas,Gropey
    Joe, The Schemer, Flakey, Corkscrew, Schifty. just to name a few. That ought
    to be a great start.When any of these pass a Psych eval, then we’ll see.

    • eclemensen

      Please tell us in what way that Trump has improved the nation.

      • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

        The Stock Market, the military, law enforcement, employment, brought jobs back,
        helped coal miners, steel workers, auto industry, helped better trade agreements,
        lowered taxes, attempting to deport illegals, secured our border, get rid of DACA.
        He is undoing all of Obama’s so called legacy.

        • eclemensen

          That is all Trump speak, True the stock market is up a third, while under Obama it tripled, but the stock market is on shaky ground. None of the other items in your statement are true. first coal minors, he did maintain the present worker compliment, but on a business that is dying (thank God) and for a short time. The work process for coal mining is being mechanized, (you can see it in action0 in Wyoming. Where in the Kentucky and Tennessee, There might be a hundred trucks in one out fit driven in two shifts by two hundred workers. loaded by ten operators, and the dump sorted by maybe twenty operators. In Wyoming Montana and other places the same hundred trucks operated by computer, the loading operated by computer, and the unloading also by computer. Requires fifteen men per shift. don’t try to tell me that the same thing isn’t going to happen in Kentucky and Tennessee. the auto industry is lay off and shifting work over seas, witness Harley Davidson as the leader of that, not to mention because of the trade wars, the price is going up $2000 per unit , feel free to look it up. Steel workers have still been static, because construction has been cut, again because of the Trade wars. Better trade agreements Talk to the Shrimp fishermen of the gulf, the Lobster fishermen of Maine their business has been cut by a third, especially the shrimper’s just recovering from the Exon/Mobile disaster. And don’t even try to tell the soy bean farmers or the produce farmers how good they are doing because their product sales have been cut in half. Obama deported more illegals then any other President ( again look it up) and the border is not secure and never will be the Great wall of china didn’t work and Trump’s wall will only be to make a profit for Trump in building it and charge the Drug trade to cross it. Losing DACA, and the purge of people of color means losing a Third of our military.

          • Proudvietvet58

            Obama, IS THAT YOU?????

          • eclemensen

            You heard the story about Senator Paul. he was walking down the street and found a little boy playing with a bunch of kittens . He asked the little boy about them and the little boy, knowing who he was said yes they were good republican kittens, and Senator Paul went on happily down the street. about a week later Senator Paul came back up the street and there was the boy playing with his kittens. senator Paul asked how the Republican kittens were doing. to which the little boy said they ain’t republican any more they got their eyes open.. Open your eye “W” dumped us in the sewer, Obama got us out. But even before that Reagan had the biggest defects and the greatest recession until “W”came along.

    The left is beginning to realize the majority of the people are seeing them for what they really are socialists. The first requisite of a charlatan is the ability to feign sincerity. These charlatans in the left wing propaganda media and the Democrat Socialists in Congress are feigning sincere concern that President Trump has issues requiring the 25th Amendment be invoked. In reality it is just another thread they are pulling at to try and invalidate the results of the 2016 election. They have been at this since President Trump was announced the winner on election night. He is well into his second year in office and America is winning like it hasn’t in almost 75 years. They need to sit down get a grip and let the mid terms run their course. All of their machinations are doing nothing but showing them for the unhinged charlatans they are. They may as well get ready for a Red Tide to roll over them in November. They have only themselves to blame.

    • Felipe Gomsz Jr.

      They are desperate and will do anything! The Phoney Russisn Dossier. Now this mole in Trump’s Campaign? What else? His ex Lawyer’s and back stabbing friends? The stripper’s he supposedly had his helmet polished with? Anything else? Non of which have been proven of any wrong doing! But. The Mid Terms are close? A Red Flag is next! Or they just plan on killing him? They impeach Trump somehow? Pence is next in line. To them he’s even worse than Trump! So what would they be accomplishing? They’d be begging for Trump back! Dahhh!

  • Felipe Gomsz Jr.

    Malarky! TYPICAL Leftist/Liberal twisting and manipulation of news, and SCENE staging. IF the person who wrote this insidious letter really is within the Rep Party, it is probably one of those inside plants the Liberals have entrenched in the Party, or a RHINO/Dem leaker / traitor writer, OR, and this is what it probably is… Some Leftist wrote the propaganda op to stir up exactly what is happening… ALL of this is TYPICAL Leftist behavior, and THIS kind of MSNBC and CNN’s behavior is why we view them as our enemies. We have NEVER seen such hatefilled, vile, anti-American attacks on anyone, much less a sitting President who is keeping his promises to restore America, as we have seen coming out of the Liberal/Leftist Democratic Party and Leftist news Medias MSNBC, CNN, etc., as we have since Hillary lost, and The Liberal/Leftist lost their political HOLD over the country. They have gone into full blown hateful FANATICAL anti-American attack. Come on people lets write to McConnell, Ryan, and other Representatives to shut this crap down and tell them and the American people that we are going to stop pandering to the Fascist Left’s manipulation of PC, Lies, the news and start a “JUST SAY NO” to the LEFTISTS regardless of WHAT it is they are trying to sell. THEY can’t impeach our President, but they are using what they THINK is THEIR power of fake news voice to manipulate this in their favor. Republican Leaders pull down their facade, say NO to their BULLYING and stand up to this! This is OUR President that they continue to traitorously attack, and I am willing to bet that it is not just because they hate Trump. They hate Trump because he got in their way of trying to manipulate America, and Americans into THEIR agenda. Oh, and to that person who thinks she wants to due Trump? Maybe a few thousand of us should file law suits against MSNBC, CNN, and Liberal/Leftist politicians for inciting and ENCOURAGING violence against us, since the election, with their gossip mongering, fake news propanganda.
