Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) introduced a House measure to better grease the ways to remove a president via the 25th Amendment.
When rumors regarding the measure started to circulate earlier in the week, Rep. McCarthy (R-CA) warned there would be repercussions for her actions.
On Monday, that warning became reality, with Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) announcing he was introducing a resolution to have Pelosi removed as the Speaker.
Tit for Tat
The media is going to play this off as tit for tat, which it is, but it is also a measure that probably needed to be introduced, even though it will never get passed.
I am generally completely against messaging legislation due to how much time and money it wastes, but something has to be put on the record regarding the nonsense Pelosi is trying to pull right now.
Collins told Fox News, “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 resolution states that House Speaker Pelosi “has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations” against Trump.
Collins also tried to flip the script, as McCarthy had stated they would do, regarding Pelosi’s mental health.
He stated, “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.”
The resolution went on to cite a recent appearance by Pelosi on TV with ABC News, saying Pelosi “appeared confused and exhibited bizarre behavior.”
This is war right now, there is simply no other way to describe what his happening.
Republicans need to show some backbone and fight back using the same tactics Democrats are using until they back off.
Pelosi has wasted millions upon millions of dollars trying to impeach Trump while a pandemic played out and now she is doing this rather than sitting down to work out a realistic stimulus package.
Collins is 100 percent right… Pelosi needs to be removed so we can get some type of normalcy back in Congress.
