“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment. But not to take attention away from the subject we have now,” said Pelosi.
“I’m not talking about it today except to tell you, if you want to talk about that, we’ll see you tomorrow,” she said. “But you take me back to my point, Mr. President, when was the last time you had a negative test before you tested positive? Why is the White House not telling the country that important fact about how this made a hotspot of the White House?”

NY TIMES: Rosenstein Proposed ‘Secretly Recording Trump,’ Invoking 25th Amendment
A bombshell report from the New York Times Friday claims Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein proposed secretly recording President Trump inside the White House, then potentially using the material to invoke the 25th amendment to remove him from office.
“The deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, suggested last year that he secretly record President Trump in the White House to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Mr. Trump from office for being unfit,” writes the Times.
Rosenstein was in his official role for just two weeks at the time.
“The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said in response to the NY Times article. “I will not further comment on a story based on anonymous sources who are obviously biased against the department and are advancing their own personal agenda.”
If confirmed, the report raises serious questions over Rosenstein’s future at the Department of Justice and his role in the ongoing Russia investigation.

THE RESISTANCE: Hillary Says There are ‘PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS’ about Invoking 25th Amendment
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her all-out war with the Trump administration Tuesday night; saying there are likely “private conversations” among the President’s staff about invoking the 25th amendment to remove him from office.
Clinton was speaking with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow when she issued her dire prediction, saying “there are probably private conversations among people in the administration who are expressing their worries.”

“They see behavior they find troubling, maybe unbalanced. They’re sharing that with their colleagues… I doubt that it’s gone as far as a formal process, but I have no doubt that people are sharing their worries,” added Clinton.
