According to CNN sources, Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives are ready to begin impeachment proceedings against the president.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi discussed with US military high command precautions on Friday to contain what Pelosi thinks is unpredictable behavior of President Donald Trump.
Pelosi fears that Trump, in a bad mood, could go to war or order the use of nuclear weapons in his remaining 12 days in power. The speaker spoke about this in a letter sent to all Democratic lawmakers..
Pelosi said she discussed the matter with General Mark Milli, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on Friday morning..
Many lawmakers believe Trump, angered by his election defeat, prompted a number of his supporters to invade the Capitol by speaking at a rally in Washington on Wednesday..
“The situation with the out-of-mind president is the greatest danger, and we must do everything in our power to protect the American people from their unbalanced attacks on our country and our democracy,” Pelosi said in a letter..
A spokesman for General Milli confirmed the interview, saying that the general “responded to (Pelosi’s) questions regarding the decision-making process to launch a nuclear strike.”.
During a conference call with Democratic lawmakers on Friday afternoon, Pelosi, according to a CNN source, told colleagues that there is now a consensus among Democrats in support of Trump’s impeachment. The speaker noted that this time the idea received more significant support among party members than it was during the first impeachment attempt by the Democrats at the end of 2019..
Pelosi added that if lawmakers initiate impeachment, it could induce Vice President Mike Pence and members of the current cabinet to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from power due to his incapacity..

In her letter, the speaker mentioned that she has not yet received a response from Pence to apply the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office due to “incitement to rebellion and the danger he still poses.”.
Pelosi added that “we still hope to hear from (Pence) a positive response as soon as possible.”.
