ADMENDMENT 25 NOW

Nah — impeachment and conviction will be easier.

Who needs to get on board for impeachment and conviction:
 — A majority of the House
 — Two thirds of the Senate

Who needs to get on board for removal per the 25th Amendment:
 — The Vice President
 — A majority of the President’s cabinet
 — Two thirds of the House
 — Two thirds of the Senate

Of course, with impeachment, the President has to have committed some kind of “high crimes and misdemeanors”, whereas the 25th Amendment just requires that the President be “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office”. However, Trump is obliging his detractors by racking up a number of offenses, so a stack of them exists. And once the Mueller and FBI investigations are completed, there may be even more.
