Breaking down the 25th Amendment Wisconsin lawmakers are calling to invoke with Prof. Helpap
But, what is the 25th Amendment, Section 4 that people are talking about?UWGB Political Science Professor David Helpap, said, “essentially if some individuals within government feel like the president is unable to meet his duties in office because of physical or mental incapability’s he can be removed from office.”Those individuals would be Vice President Mike Pence and the president’s cabinet.”They would draft a letter and send it to the House of Representatives and Senate, saying that the President is incapable of continuing on in his role,” said Helpap.From that moment the president loses power, but is not removed from office. The only thing he can do is challenge the transition of power. Then, leaving it in the hands of congress.” Both houses have to vote on whether or not they agree with the assessment by the vice president and cabinet. That can take up to 21 days I believe it is,” said Helpap.
