During a press conference Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hinted that she may try to remove President Donald Trump through the use of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.
The amendment provides for a process to replace the president should he become incapacitated and unable to perform his duties.
“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment,” Pelosi said to reporters.
The first use of the 25th Amendment was in 1973 when President Richard Nixon nominated Rep. Gerald Ford of Michigan to fill a vacancy after the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew. A few months later, it was used again, as Nixon resigned and Ford became president. Ford nominated Nelson Rockefeller as his Vice President.
Pelosi has endorsed Alyse Galvin for Congress in her quest to unseat Congressman Don Young. Media has not yet asked Galvin her opinion on using the 25th Amendment to remove the president.
