Yellen Denies 25th Amendment Being Discussed Among Cabinet Members

Fox News

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Tuesday said there has been no discussion among Cabinet members of invoking the 25th Amendment in the wake of a politically disastrous debate that reignited concerns about President Biden’s age and mental acuity. 

Asked while she was testifying before the House Financial Services Committee whether Cabinet members have talked about invoking the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, Yellen said: “No.” The 25th Amendment enables the vice president and a majority of sitting Cabinet secretaries to declare the president unfit to serve, and immediately transfer power to the vice president.

A president can challenge the move; however, the decision would then be up to Congress. A two-thirds majority vote in both the House and Senate would be required for the president to remain in office. More

  1. The democrats should not be let off so easily. Criminal ballot access laws in every state will screw over the democrats trying to replace Mr. Potatohead at this point in the process…so FUCK THEM. They deserve to be hoisted on their own petard as it were.

  2. …well, the entire cabinet is illegitimate anyway since their appointments were made by an usurper fraudulently occupying the White House, so who gives a damn what they think…

  3. Is it just me, or did anyone else connect the malicious, maladjusted bastards loading up the Cabinet level positions with an assortment of circus sideshow freaks in an attempt to divert attention from the dementia riddled old pervert himself?

    Jesus H Christ, how better than to surround him with an entire smorgasbord of kooks and weirdos if you wanted people to focus elsewhere than on the star of the shitshow? Holy shit, just keeping score has been a full time job the last four years.

  4. JDHasty, you’re right, and I think it’s helping to turn this clown car down a dead end. Sane Democrats are now saying “Will we really be worse with Trump? So what if Trump wins at this point? Things may actually get better.”

  5. Maybe when I retire I can go back to college and pursue a doctorate in social sciences. For my thesis I have in mind a social experiment wherein the top three hundred positions in the Biden Administration put to sea on a Carnival Cruise liner for three months and observed. Perhaps my experiment could be expanded and a representative sample of any Democrat constituency could be compared to a representative sample of MAGA types. Of course, the MAGA would have to sail first, the fucking boat would ever be unfit for man or beast Gin after a few weeks of Democrats. It is no secret what they leave behind every time a critical mass of them congregate for more than an hour or two.

  6. We want our Gold and Silver system back, as well as, Our portion of all the “Interest” you stole from the World. We do not have to ask your permission. Keep on shuffling, and the World will be coming after you.

  7. I’ve read that Biden has installed loyalists at key positions in the DNC to short circuit any attempts to oust him from the ballot. The voters have voted Old Joe as their nominee, not that the Dems really give a flying fig about that. Dance with the one that brung ya, suckers.
