While we now have people chanting to impeach Trump under the 25th Amendment, we also have a true Treasonous Constitutional Crisis of UNELECTED bureaucrats working to undermine an ELECTED official by the people. Regardless of the issue in play, which they refuse to describe as in the OP_ED, this is a major Constitutional Crisis that is brewing and it is all being orchestrated for the upcoming November elections. The whisper’s Behind the Curtain is actually loud and clear. The Democrats BELIEVE that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was elected because the bulk of the have-nots want more socialism and for government to increase taxes dramatically on the “rich” and corporations.
Article 3, Section 3 – Treason
Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.
I find it unbelievable that you have the Speaker of the House saying he sees nothing to investigate. Lyndsey Grahm has changed his tune on Trump but he is saying this is not treason against the country just disloyal workers. We do NOT know the motives of these people in the White House if they are being paid to undermine the government by domestic or foreign powers or are they doing this and have been paid in a desperate act to swing the November elections. There is no possible way to know if this is a plot against the country without an investigation.
The US Constitution Article II, Section I, Clause 6 actually made it clear that the death, resignation, or inability to discharge the powers of the office of the Presidency meant that he would be replaced by the Vice President. In 1967, this clause was partially superseded by the 25th Amendment.
The 25th Amendment, proposed by Congress was ratified by the states in the aftermath of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I believe it gained support because there was a sense that a conspiracy had been really implement Behind the Curtain. This Amendment provided for the procedures necessary to replace the president or vice president in the event of death, removal, resignation, or incapacitation. The Watergate scandal of the 1970s saw the application of these procedures, first when Gerald Ford replaced Spiro Agnew as vice president, and then again when Ford replaced Richard Nixon as president. It also came into play when Nelson Rockefeller filled the resulting vacancy to become the vice president.
While they are trying to claim Trump has acted irrationally, listen to the litany. They acknowledge Trump has made significant important changes in taxes, strengthen the military, and reduced waste. The allegations merely say he accomplished this inspire of his personality. What is really telling in that they paint him as warming to Putin and turning his back on traditional allies? Once again, they seem to be scared to death that the truth about the US interference in the Russian 2000 election is what resulted in Yeltsin turning to Putin. Just look at the timeline.
July 1998, Republic Bank alerted authorities about unusually large wire transfers coming through its coffers from Russia.
July 25th, 1998 Yeltsin appointed Putin as Director of the Federal Security Service (FSB), the primary intelligence agency and the successor to the KGB.
August 9th, 1999, Putin was appointed one of three First Deputy Prime Ministers, and later on, that same day he was appointed acting Prime Minister. It was that same day that Putin agreed to run for the presidency.
August 16th, 1999 the State Duma approved Putin’s appointment as Prime Minister. There were opponents who fought hard to prevent Putin’s emergence as a potential successor. Putin had not been formally associated with any party.
August 20th, 1999 Wall Street Journal reports Bank of New York Investigation. They wrote: “It was in late August when the suspicious transfers at Bank of New York were brought to the attention of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation by Republic National Bank of New York, a unit of Republic New York Corp., according to people familiar with the matter. ”
August 27th, 1999 Republic National Bank takes our funds, I demand to fly to Geneva to speak to Safra when the head of the bank George Wendler says he is “only the messenger.” This is when I was told Safra fled Geneva and went to Monaco “for security reasons.”
December 3rd, 1999 Edmond Safra dies in Monaco all his bodyguards were given the night off.
December 31st, 1999, Yeltsin unexpectedly resigned and, according to the Constitution of Russia, Putin became Acting President of the Russian Federation. Putin also passed that same day the decree made it a law that Yeltsin cannot be charged with corruption which is obvious that there was a problem with the whole Bank of New York and IMF missing funds incident.
January 25th, 2000; Putin consent to compromise with Duma that Yeltsin can be prosecuted for any serious crimes committed in office with a vote of 275 to 139 on second reading. Yet, Putin would never prosecute Yeltsin.
In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President.
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.
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.
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.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days 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. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.
