House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said in a letter to her colleagues on Friday that she spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, to discuss preventing President Donald Trump from “ordering a nuclear strike.”
“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 launch codes & ordering a nuclear strike,” she wrote in a letter on January 8. Trump has given no indication that he plans to do any such thing.
She added, “The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.”
Democrats are pushing Trump’s cabinet members in invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office
