General/Chief of Staff: REMOVE TRUMP From Office Via 25th Amendment

There has always been a ton of suspicion surrounding the motivations and loyalties of General Kelly.

It is clear that President Trump has tremendous respect for the military and a desire to be surrounded by Generals.  So much so that he chose one (General Kelly) as his chief of staff.

We’ve mentioned this before, but we will say it again, I think one thing that Trump did not count on was how committed the people in Washington were to perpetuating the status quo and how the people he tapped from the swamp would NEVER convert to his America First platform.

Hind sight is 20/20 and Trump is the man in the arena, and I am just a guy behind a keyboard, but it seems to me that Trump should have selected every single cabinet member and leader inside the administration from outside the swamp.

Here’s one reason why, just listen to General Kelly:

Newsmax reported:

‘Former White House chief of staff John Kelly said Thursday he supported using the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office in the aftermath of the violent riot at the Capitol.

During a Thursday interview on CNN, Kelly was asked if, assuming he were a cabinet member, he would vote to invoke the 25th Amendment.

“Yes, I would,” Kelly said. “The one thing we have going for us here is it’s only 13 more days. No one, as indicated yesterday by our vice president, no one around him anymore is going to break the law. He can give all the orders he wants and no one is going to break the law.”

The 25th Amendment includes Section 4, which allows the vice president and a majority of either the president’s cabinet or the members of Congress to declare in writing to the Senate president pro tempore and House speaker that the sitting president is unable to perform the duties of the office. This immediately would make the vice president the acting president. 

“I think that the Cabinet should meet and have a discussion,” Kelly said. “I don’t think that it’ll happen, but I think the Cabinet should meet and discuss this because the behavior [Wednesday] and in the weeks and months before that has just been outrageous from the President.”

Kelly, who left the White House in December 2018, joined a growing list of Democrats and Republicans calling for Trump to be removed from office.’

Kelly went on to say that ‘“What happened on Capitol Hill yesterday is a direct result of his poisoning the minds of people with the lies and the frauds.”

 Apparently General Kelly either refused to look at the evidence or is happy to deny that there were any discrepancies in the election results.

It was a monumental task for Trump to stay in office as long as he did with all the attempts against his administration.
