Scaramucci says 25th Amendment Could be Used to Expel Trump from Office, Citing ‘Full-Blown Insanity’

Anthony Scaramucci in an interview on Tuesday stated that President Donald Trump is mentally unstable and Cabinet officials should consider using the 25th Amendment to expel him from office.

According to The Hill, Scaramucci, who was a White House communications director, confirmed whether he agreed with conservative lawyer George Conway that people should raise questions about the President’s mental stability and that officials should consider invoking the 25th Amendment. 

“A thousand percent,” Scaramucci replied. “I don’t understand how elected public servants of the longest-standing Republican democracy in existing world history, a 243-year-old Republican democracy could have this sort of full-blown insanity on display and not act.”

“It has to really make you worry about the state of the country and the overall cowardice of leadership,” Scaramucci continued.

Previously Scaramucci criticized Trump’s trip to visit victims of the recent mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, earlier this month.

Trump has also lashed out at his former ally, calling him “totally incapable” and attacking him as a “mental wreck.”

Scaramucci predicted in a recent CNN interview that “a trove” of former administration officials would emerge to label Trump unstable.

Conway, who is the husband of White House counselor and top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, has been a frequent critic of Trump on social media and in op-eds.

Last week, George Conway on Twitter encouraged White House aides to take Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center and to “convene the cabinet under Section 4 of the Twenty-fifth Amendment.”

The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of a President if the vice president and a majority of Cabinet secretaries agree in writing that the commander in chief is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
