80-year-old speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi will be unveiling legislation on Friday that would task a commission of doctors with reviewing whether Trump is mentally stable to remain in office, the first step of a never-used removal process spelled out by the 4th section of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution.
Pelosi’s focus on president’s psychological well-being comes as sources say she has privately raised issues this week that the Covid-infected Trump may not be of sound mind.
The speaker was especially concerned by president telling his workers on Tuesday afternoon to pull out of all Covid-19 stimulus negotiations with Democrats before the election, only to spend the same night thumbing out a storm of tweets calling for more stimulus talks, according to sources.
Since being hospitalized last weekend with coronavirus, the president has been on a series of experimental medicines, including dexamethasone, a strong steroid that’s generally only administered to seriously ill Covid-19 victims. Possible side effects from the powerful steroid include mania, psychosis & delusions.
