The U.S. House of Representatives returns to the floor again on Tuesday to vote on a resolution calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke constitutional authority to remove President Trump from office, after it was blocked Monday by Republicans.
The 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967 and adopted in the wake of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, deals with presidential succession and disability.
Section 4 addresses situations where a president is unable to do the job but does not step down voluntarily.
The drafters of the 25th Amendment clearly intended for it to apply when a president is incapacitated by a physical or mental illness, experts say. Some scholars have also argued that it could also apply more broadly to a president who is dangerously unfit for office.
