By now you've likely seen that the attorney for the "whistleblower" who filed a complaint about a July phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, called for a coup back in 2017.
But it turns out, Zaid isn't the only person on the whistleblower's legal team who advocated for the removal of President Trump from office. The other attorney, Andrew Bakaj, did the same.
He is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. That's the standard. 25th Amendment. It says nothing about mental health. https://t.co/BlJRV0Lm1u— Andrew P. Bakaj (@AndrewBakaj) August 16, 2017
The 25th Amendment concerns @POTUS' inability to discharge the powers and duties of office. Says nothing about mental health. We're there.— Andrew P. Bakaj (@AndrewBakaj) August 18, 2017
Tillerson and Mattis could pull together a majority of the cabinet and invoke the 25th. https://t.co/8x4MB2zI3t— Andrew P. Bakaj (@AndrewBakaj) October 10, 2017
Sound familiar? Fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told 60 Minutes earlier this year that the 25th Amendment was discussed at the Department of Justice and among FBI agents as a way to go after the President. As a reminder, McCabe was involved with the "insurance policy" discussed in text messages between former FBI agent Peter Strzok and attorney Lisa Page.
And just last night, the former Trump administration official who wrote an anonymous "Resistance" op-ed in the New York Times last year and about to publish a book in coming weeks, claimed Vice President Mike Pence was onboard with the 25th Amendment option. Pence's office is calling the claim "fake news."
FAKE NEWS. https://t.co/cOB5SXzIG5— Katie Waldman (@VPPressSec) November 7, 2019
