Rep. Doug Collins Introduces Resolution to Remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker Because of Lack of Mental Fitness

Politics U.S.

Republican Congressman Doug Collins (GA) has introduced legislation to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, charging she “does not have the mental fitness” to serve.

“Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness, which is why it’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession,” Collins told Fox News.

The resolution says Pelosi “has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations” against President Trump.

“On October 31, 2019, Speaker Nancy Pelosi oversaw the first party-line vote to begin an impeachment inquiry into a president in the history of our country,” it reads.

Collins also cites Pelosi’s ripping up of President Trump’s State of the Union speech in February “before the American people,” and that she “visited a shuttered hair salon in San Francisco where she received a blow-out without wearing a mask in violation of San Francisco’s laws concerning the coronavirus,” then “cast blame on the salon’s owner for ‘setting her up.’”

“Over her tenure of her speakership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has started to demonstrate a decline in mental fitness, calling into question her ability to adequately serve the House of Representatives and the American people,” it continues.

Pelosi has also had several questionable appearances on news programs in recent weeks.

Collins’ bill comes in response to a bill introduced by Democrat Rep. Jamie Raskin (MD) which establishes a new commission under the 25th Amendment charged with evaluating a President’s mental and physical capacity. It is largely believed President Trump is the indirect target of that bill.
