    Re: Trump


    There's nothing congress can actually do about the 25th amendment.
    They can vote unanimously for it.
    Doesn't matter.
    It's on Pence to invoke it.

    This vote is meaningless from a "how government works" standpoint.

    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.

    Re: Trump

    Yeah. HR21 was a resolution urging the VP and cabinet to invoke the 25th. Nothing more than that.
    "Meaningless" is a bit of an understatement here. It means the US House of Representatives thinks the sitting President should be removed by the 25th amendment. Is that the first time in history that has happened? Sure isn't every day.

    They knew that passing it wouldn't convince pence to do it, but it shows that they tried before impeaching a second time.

    I don't agree with that. I think a more accurate statement would be, "We don't know what Congress can do to invoke the 25th Amendment" because a) it's not written down in the Constitution and b) no one has ever tried it before. From the text you posted:

    the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress
    It's pretty clear to me that people other than the VPOTUS can invoke it, it's just not clear who those people are.

    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
    vp = 0;
    cabinet = 0;
    congress = 1;

    if (vp and (cabinet or congress)) then {
    envoke25(trump)
    }

    The power resides with the VP. He has to have agreement from the majority of the cabinet or some unknown makeup of congress, but it depends on the VP.

    Re: Trump



    Trump's departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews on the morning of the 20th is expected to be like a state visit departure event, per admin official familiar with planning. Color guard, military band, 21 gun salute and red carpet all under consideration for event, at the moment.
    Two senior defense officials confirmed to Defense One on Thursday that no military farewell is being planned for the commander in chief.

    'Isolated And Angry' Trump Refuses To Pay Rudy Giuliani For Legal Work

    President Donald Trump is reportedly taking out his frustrations on his personal attorney and longtime friend, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

    And he’s doing it in the classic Trump fashion: by refusing to pay him.

    The Washington Post said Trump is trying to stiff Giuliani, who has spent the past months traveling the country and spreading wild conspiracy theories about the November election on behalf of the president.

    Citing two unnamed officials, the newspaper said Trump has not only refused to pay Giuliani’s legal fees but has told aides that all reimbursement requests for travel and other expenses need to go through him.

    The Post said Trump was unhappy with Giuliani’s demand for $20,000 a day in fees and “has privately expressed concern” with some of his attorney’s moves.

    The former mayor last year denied seeking that specific amount, claiming a much more unusual fee structure instead.

    “I never asked for $20,000,” he told The New York Times in November. “The arrangement is we’ll work it out at the end.”

    The Times on Wednesday confirmed the latest Post report, adding that White House officials were blocking Giuliani’s calls to Trump.
    Fucking PRICELESS....
