As I pointed out this morning, the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the media are moving swiftly now to try to have President Donald Trump removed from office prior to the end of his term in office on January 20th. Over the past few hours, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have issued calls for the President’s removal via the 25th amendment or impeachment, and China Joe Biden just gave a highly inflammatory speech in which he essentially labeled President Trump and his supporters as traitors:

The 25th amendment route is really the only potential vehicle that could be used to achieve the DC Swamp’s goal of getting rid of Trump before January 20, given that any impeachment/removal effort by the house and senate would consume weeks of time. The trouble with the 25th amendment route is the likelihood that several cabinet officials who would have to support such an effort are considering resigning, a process that already began today. From a story at Fox News:
Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao announced Thursday that she is stepping down from her post, a day after the rioting on Capitol Hill — making her the latest member of the administration to resign over Trump’s conduct, and the first Cabinet member to do so.
“Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed,” she said in a statement.
“As I’m sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.”
We can expect to see additional cabinet officials walking away in the days to come. Given that an effort to take out a president using the 25th amendment requires by necessity come continuity of the players involved and the cooperation of Vice President Mike Pence, it seems unlikely to succeed. While Pence might be inclined to do so with all other considerations being equal, he still likely harbors presidential aspirations of his own and has know that any such cooperation would sound the death knell for his political career.
But none of that will prevent Pelosi, Schumer, Biden and the other Swamp creatures from continuing to try. Trump handed them a rope yesterday, and they will certainly do everything they can to try to hang him with it.
That is all.
