(ConservativePeak.com)- Remember when Republicans warned during the 2020 presidential election that President Joe Biden wouldn’t stick around for long and would quickly be replaced by Vice President Kamala Harris?
Well, now even some Democrats are cottoning on to the plot.
During an interview with Newsmax, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, warned that Democrats were preparing to remove Joe Biden from office using the 25th Amendment. Speaking on Sunday, he said that Democrats are increasingly thinking about the idea “in the back of their minds.”
In October last year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi caused a stir when she introduced a bill that would establish a commission on presidential capacity under the 25th Amendment. Many speculated that it was a measure designed to remove President Donald Trump from office, but it soon became clear that the Democrats might have been expecting a Biden win…and might have been aware of Biden’s severe cognitive decline.
“This is not about President Trump. He will face the judgment of the voters, but he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents,” she admitted at the time. “This legislation applies to future presidents, but we are reminded of the necessity of action by the health of the current president.”
Morris noted three things that the Democrats have already done to restrict President Biden’s authority, and also mentioned Pelosi’s curious 25th Amendment commission.
Morris also referred to a letter published in February by dozens of House Democrats who asked the president to renounce his authority to use nuclear weapons – something they didn’t even ask former President Donald Trump to do. And that’s saying something.
And Morris has a theory as to why the Democrats supported Biden in the first place, despite plotting to remove him already.
“I think that the Democrats are inevitably headed toward this,” he said. “And I have to tell you that I think that there may be a purpose in this. I think that when the Democrats put Biden in to stop [Sen.] Bernie Sanders, then insisted [Kamala] Harris or somebody like her be the vice president, I think they knew this might well happen…I’m not sure that this is all happenstance.”
Under the 25th Amendment, a vice president can take over a president’s duty if the president is deemed to be unable to properly execute his role. It requires the approval of the whole cabinet, and Pelosi’s commission could provide further authority to remove a president.
And with Joe Biden struggling to finish a speech without getting confused or relying on a teleprompter…or even remembering the names of his staff and colleagues…that wouldn’t be too hard.
