Trump to be Ejected by His Own Cabinet

When Robert Mueller handed down indictments to Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopolous earlier this week, sending President Trump’s White House scrambling for a cohesive message, Trump sought advice from his former senior advisor, Steve Bannon — who then told Trump to “get serious,” according to an interview in Vanity Fair.

Mueller is reportedly gearing up to interview West Wing aides, and Bannon wants Trump to lawyer up so that the President had a check on his legal team’s “unchecked power.” Bannon told Trump as much in a series of phone calls earlier in the week.

The problem, Bannon told Vanity Fair, is that he believes the President isn’t acting with enough force, and failing to command respect from those responsible for enacting his agenda. Without some level of cohesiveness among his top aides, advisors, and even employees, Trump, Bannon believes, is vulnerable to attacks from both outside the White House — from so-called “Establishment” Republicans — and from within — including from within his own cabinet.

Two weeks ago, according to a source, Bannon did a spitball analysis of the Cabinet to see which members would remain loyal to Trump in the event the 25th Amendment were invoked, thereby triggering a vote to remove the president from office. Bannon recently told people he’s not sure if Trump would survive such a vote.

The 25th Amendment allows the president’s Cabinet, and the vice president, to declare the president “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” and approach Congress to hold hearings to decide whether the president is indeed unfit for service.

The 25th Amendment is designed for use in emergency situations; Congress thought the Amendment, as written, seemed clear cut. You’d know when the president was “unfit” because he’d be physically injured, mentally incompetent or, heaven forbid, dead. But leftists, and some anti-Trump Republicans, have argued that the Amendment’s language is intentionally vague, so as to cover a multitude of other presidential sins, including just sheer ineptitude.

Trump should be protected — after all, he selected his own Cabinet and his vice president — but Bannon seems to believe that those same officials don’t see allegience to the President as a qualification for holding their jobs, and he’d like to see Trump start demanding their respect.

“One thing Steve wants Trump to do is take this more seriously,” a “Bannon confidante” told Vanity Fair. “Stop joking around. Stop tweeting.”



    If Trump were to be rejected by his own cabinet he would fire those people. You nerds who dream up this bullcrap are wasting your time. It’s not going to happen.

    Why is Bannon putting that cr#p out there. I’m now wondering whose side he is really on. Who gets to decide what constitutes incompetence, the entrenched congressman who get all those benefits for years and years with no term limits?

    holes fucking crazy? IF and that’s a BIG IF they happen to remove a legal president that would trigger a civil war! Those of us that believe in our president would go ape shit nuts on those traitorous assholes!

    I can’t think of a more incompetent bunch of useless hypocrites than the morons in Congress. For them to impeach Trump on the grounds of incompetence would be the height of hypocrisy. Not that being a useless hypocrite has ever bothered anyone in Congress since George Washington was President!

    Come 2018, President Trump will be taking out the trash within his cabinet.
    I’m beginning to not trust even the ones that were at one time thought to be honest,
    such as Sessions and Pence. How creepy of them to stab their boss, the
    President, in the back as if we’re not on to them. They will be dealt with soon.

    Americans have a voice if an impeachment from the left comes to haunt our Government: 800 million people can call an “abeyance” on the payment of their income taxes until Trump is re-instated. The IRS could not control or stop a financial “attack” of this magnitude. Neither could Congress.

    Then, after Trump is re-instated, he would “forgive” any penalties against taxpayers in this taxpayer revolt. The voters who voted for Trump will not tolerate his removal by the left. This is an important message that must be sent.

    Headlines to grab attention has become the norm for this cheap website!

      People expecting real reporting from vanity (the onion) fair ?

        True, but reposting by “Liberty”, along with a wildly misleading headline is worthy of criticism!

    Trump needs to do two things 1) Fire those who were placed in under Obama and 2) Demand an investigation of Mueller and those on is Panel or whatever name they use for these witch hunt part members. He needs to limit the investigation to their involvement in a dirty investigation that went far beyond what it was formed to do. If he needs to start with a fresh FBI and DOJ then fire them all and start fresh. Mueller went way beyond trying to find any collusion by Trump and his people. He himself is guilty of Collusion and so is the entire Obama admin given what has come out from all the records and reports from the DNC and other sources.
