House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told House Democrats that she had contacted the joint chiefs of staff to see what kind of precautionary measures were being taken to keep President Donald Trump from accessing nuclear launch zones.
The California Democrat called the president “unhinged” as her reasoning for making such a move, NBC News reported.
“This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to House Democrats.
“As you know, there is growing momentum around the invocation of the 25th Amendment, which would allow the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet to remove the President for his incitement of insurrection and the danger he still poses.”
