    Wilson, Tyler, Kennedy, when a President is physically incapacitated and cannot carry out the duties

    "Kennedy’s sudden passing accelerated an argument about a constitutional change that had been in the works in Congress in 1963.

    Technically, the Constitution never spelled out how a Vice President would become President if a President died, resigned or was unable to perform the office’s duty."

    So what do we do if a president is mentally incapable of the job or owned by a hostile state?

    Then why was he trying to get a wire in the WH claiming it was for the 25th?

    Fact is there is a criminal investigation into the President and the FBI told the gang of 8 about it. Gee, imagine these deep staters actually doing their jobs.

    They knew he was lying about his russian contacts, his peculiar complimentary and conciliatory attitude towards Putin despite him being advised of Russian interference, his firing of the man in charge of the investigation into his campaign and admitting it was about Russia, and then hosting the russians in the oval office the next day.

    Nah, nothing at all to see there. Certainly nothing that would warrant serious concern. Move along, nothing to see here.

    To provide the cabinet in case THEY wanted to pursue the 25th. He had no power to make it happen.

    They need to terminate the employment of everyone in the DOJ and start over.

    And I would have hoped that any cabinet official who they went to and said WE want to remove the President under the 25th are you in on it, would have forcefully told them that THEY are not a party to the 25th and that they were going to immeidately write a formal letter to the President urging THEIR immediate firings and the assignment of a special prosecutor to look into and sedition charges that could be brought forth. And if they had any evidence of a high crime or misdemeanor to turn that over to the Attorney General who if they believe warrants will take it to the Congress for impeachment.
