25th Amendment has been discussed from early in the Trump administration
A year ago, the 25th Ameindment was openly and widely discussed as a way to remove President Trump from office, so much so, I wrote a column on the prospects, which was as true then as it is today.
Update: 9/21/18 https://www.yahoo.com/news/rod-rosenstein-suggested-recording-trump-181318786.html within the context of the discussion of the 25th Amendment...and
Omarosa said the 25th was a topic of discussion then, as well. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/09/09/omarosa-trump-aides-used-tfa-refer-25th-amendment/1249713002/
Once again in the wake of the series of books and a New York Times anymous op-ed about the White House chaos and the President's unfitness to occupy the Oval Office the 25th Amendment is a topic of public discourse.
Here is what was published published in the Sky Hi News September 13, 2017. "The left’s dream is that Donald Trump will be impeached. Reasons I suspect are mostly politically motivated.to stop Trump’ agenda of dismantling the Obama legacy, his racism, or a contempt for his persona. Alone these are not the “high crimes and misdemeanors” standard for impeachment in the Constitution. Whether he is fit to serve refers to the 25th Amendment and the process to determine fitness.. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper added gravitas to the impeachment movement when he questioned Trump’s fitness, calling Trump’s Phoenix post Charlottesville divisive speech “downright scary and disturbing”. . Heavyweight Democratic leaders have differed from impeachment advocates. In August Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) California proposed “ patience” for Donald Trump to learn and said he could become a “good “ president.. David Axelrod, former Obama adviser, opined that with 30% plus of voters still supporting Trump, an attempt to impeach him could be viewed as a bloodless coup and a danger to the constitutional process. In June, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told impeachment talkers to “calm down” and wait for “solid proof”. That makes sense. . The most credible proof of misdeeds or exoneration is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Russian connection. Any sabotaging of the investigation by Trump or the GOP should be fought tooth and nail."
