How is the Trump presidency likely to end? It is a question that has been asked more frequently by more people about President Donald Trump than about any other commander in chief in modern history. This week has again seen musings thrust back to the forefront about how the most unorthodox, unpredictable and unpopular president in modern history could exit the White House.
For some, his impeachment should already be on the table. Last Wednesday, Representative Al Green of Texas became the second Democrat to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump on the House floor, accusing him of “betraying his trust as president.”
A day later, another House Democrat made her latest call for Trump to be removed from office.
“Republicans should step up to the plate and confront the fact that this president appears to be unstable,” Representative Maxine Waters of California said on MSNBC Thursday. “I believe that really has been collusion [with the Russians], and I do think that special counsel [Robert] Mueller is going to connect those dots. But I think there's enough now that we all know...that we should be moving on impeachment.”
Even though Mueller has yet to reach a conclusion, Democrats have accused Trump of being eligible for impeachment on various grounds. Included among them are his response to the deadly violence following a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as accusations that he obstructed justice in his firing of James Comey as FBI director.
Others are focusing on different ways to remove Trump from the White House. In August, Democratic Representative Jackie Speier called for Vice President Mike Pence and Trump’s Cabinet to declare him unable to discharge the powers of the presidency and to use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
