Chip Roy Calls House Meeting to Discuss Removing Biden with 25th Amendment

GOP Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) has called a meeting with House Republicans to discuss options for removing Democrat President Joe Biden under the 25th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

In a statement, Roy said the issue will be discussed during a meeting with House GOP on Tuesday.

Roy said believes Republicans need to have a position on where they stand regarding Biden’s competence.

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment provides a series of steps for removing a president from office if he or she becomes incapacitated.

However, a resolution on the 25th Amendment cannot just be presented to the House floor immediately.

Because it deals with the executive branch and not Congress, the bill would not be “privileged” and go straight to the front of the legislative line.

Impeachment, on the other hand, could be considered “privileged.”

The powers of impeachment are enumerated in the Constitution as being under the purview of Congress.

Any resolution on the 25th Amendment would need to go through a committee first.

Roy’s plan comes a week and a half after House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) spoke about the cabinet weighing in on the 25th Amendment regarding Biden.

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) was asked by “Fox News Sunday” if Biden was well enough to continue to serve as president.

The congressman was also asked if he would support a move on the 25th Amendment.

Donalds said he did not believe Biden has the capability to serve out the rest of his term, or even run for re-election president.

He also told the host he would support a move on the 25th Amendment.

Donalds said:

“I do agree we do have a responsibility to make sure that the occupants of the Oval Office has the mental capabilities to do that job, but that responsibility relies with Vice President Kamala Harris and with the cabinet.

“What we are seeing is that they have decided to cover up for Joe Biden to protect their radical agenda as opposed to doing what is in the best interest of the American people.

“If that resolution hits the floor, I would vote for it 100 percent.

“But at the end of the day, Kamala Harris and the cabinet, they have a responsibility to the American people.

“They have a constitutional duty to the American people.”
