Pelosi, Democrats Introducing Bill to Create Commission on ‘Presidential Capacity’


According to the Constitution, Section 4 of the 25th Amendment allows Congress to come up with a body to declare whether a president “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” “In emergency situations, Congress could pass a concurrent resolution requiring the Commission to examine the President, determine his/her ability to execute the powers and duties of the office, and report its findings to Congress. If presidential incapacity exists, the Vice President would immediately assume the role of Acting President,” said Raskin’s office in a news release. However, according to the Constitution, only Vice President Mike Pence can trigger the involuntary removal of Trump.
