On Cabinet Impeachment


(From the Belmont Club thread "Earnest")

Agreed. He is the kind who likely said, "I'll do something and you'll all be really really sorry. Just you wait and see."

Under the 25th Amendment the Cabinet could declare him unfit and remove him. In effect they can impeach the President and refer him to a Senate trial. That is why confident mature Presidents chose cabinet officers who are strong leaders in their own rights but weak men like Obama choose a Cabinet full of nonentities with scandals revealed, and probably more in the drawer, who could never work together to remove the POTUS.
