According to Dick Morris, the former adviser to Bill Clinton, it is likely that the Democrats will use the 25 Amendment at some point to remove President Joe Biden from office.
Breitbart reports that Morris predicted as much in a recent interview with New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable.”
Many have argued that Joe Biden is little more than a Trojan horse for more radical Democrats. We have already seen some of this with the sort of policies that have been enacted by Biden’s administration.
But, some go a step further and argue that the ultimate plan is to replace Biden with one of these more radical Democrats, namely Vice President Kamala Harris. According to Morris, Democrats have been “laying the basis” to use the 25th Amendment to do just that.
Here’s the relevant portion of the 25th Amendment: “Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
Morris believes that at some point the Democrats around Biden will claim that he is too “senile” to “discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
The signs are there
Morris backed his prediction up with some examples that he believes show that the Democrats are heading in this direction.
One example, says Morris, is that “four Democrats and four Republicans in the Senate have come to repeal the War Powers Act.”
Another example, according to Morris, is the recent letter from 30 Democrats who asked Biden “to give up sole control of the nuclear codes so that a strike could not be launched without consulting … with his cabinet or … with leaders of Congress.”
“I think both of those indicate that the Democrats have in the back of their minds and, increasingly, towards the front of their minds, moving to oust Biden under the 25th Amendment,” Morris said.
“Another piece of the puzzle”
Morris also pointed to how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), back in October of 2020, tried to have passed a bill that would have set up a commission to invoke the 25th Amendment against then-President Donald Trump. Morris said that, although this act was directed at Trump, he believes that Pelosi also had a future Biden presidency in mind as well.
Morris, in conclusion, said that he thinks that it is “inevitable” that the Democrats will at some point use the 25th Amendment to have Biden removed.
