Pelosi, 81, a career politician who has served in the House for 33 years, is third in the line of succession for the presidency, essentially putting her two heartbeats away from the White House.
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) finds that unacceptable. “It’s clear that Nancy Pelosi does not have the mental fitness to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives. I’m introducing a resolution to push for her removal,” he wrote on Twitter on Sunday. He introduced the resolution on Monday.
“Nancy Pelosi’s unwillingness to abide by the Constitution, combined with her recent actions, call into question her own mental fitness,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s critical that the House of Representatives demand her removal from the line of succession.”
Fox News obtained a copy of Collins’ resolution, which says Pelosi “is unable to adequately serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives and should therefore be removed from her position.”
The resolution also says Pelosi “has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations” against President Trump and his administration, including last year’s impeachment inquiry. “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,” the resolution says.
