Boston: “If senior administration officials think the President of the US is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment,” Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren told CNN on Thursday.
“The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the Vice President and senior officials think the President can’t do his job. It does not provide that senior officials go around the President — take documents off his desk, write anonymous op-eds… Everyone of these officials have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the US. It’s time for them to do their job.”
The hard-charging comments by Warren, a potential 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, comes in the wake of a shocking New York Times opinion piece where an anonymous official raises deep concerns about Trump and contends that there were some initial conversations to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the President from office.
The White House has aggressively slammed the piece, calling the author a traitor and a coward.
