25th amendment - warning from Bannon

Just read somewhere that Bannon warned Trump that congressional impeachment isn't the real threat to his presidency -- it's the 25th amendment.  There's a clause that allows a majority of the cabinet (and the VP) to declare him unfit.

Bannon also said he gave Trump a 30% chance of making it through his full term.  We shall see.

I had never known the cabinet had this power to eject a president.  Wild!

For Bannon to say this, he must be hearing rumblings.

Once again, Trump will be removed by the REPUBLICANS if and when he goes.

It's also possible Bannon said this to Trump to get Trump to turn against certain members of his cabinet that Bannon wants gone.

Thought that this whole Russia hyper-ventilating would be his undoing.  You folks have been stating he would be impeached from the very start and here we are in Oct and no impeachment, no damning evidence of Russia?!  Over a year's worth of investigation and STILL no evidence to impeach this man.

What does the term "unfit" mean in this instance?

Mentally unfit? Or simply incompetent?

What happens if the majority of a president's cabinet simply don't like his policies? Could they still declare him unfit?

locomotives start of very slowly but once they are up to speed it's DAMN HARD to stop em

"Liberal Democratic Rep. Al Green on Wednesday followed through on threats to file articles of impeachment against President Trump, introducing the resolution in the House while delivering an anti-Trump tirade on the floor.

The Texas congressman's maneuver was short-lived. While Green could have forced a vote as early as Wednesday, he opted not to take further action and the articles effectively expired.

However, Green could reintroduce the measure at any time, and a spokesman for the lawmaker told Fox News he may do so. "

Probably both
