US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi yes­ter­day an­nounced leg­is­la­tion that would cre­ate a com­mis­sion to al­low Congress to in­ter­vene un­der the 25th Amend­ment to the Con­sti­tu­tion and re­move Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump from ex­ec­u­tive du­ties. Pelosi said Trump needs to dis­close more about his health af­ter his Covid- 19 di­ag­no­sis. She noted Trump’s “strange tweet” halt­ing talks on a new coro­n­avirus aid pack­age and said Amer­i­cans need to know when he first con­tracted Covid- 19 as oth­ers in the White House be­came in­fected. Congress is not in leg­isla­tive ses­sion, so any se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion of the mea­sure is un­likely. But the bill serves as a po­lit­i­cal tool to stoke ques­tions about Trump’s health as his own White House is hit by an out­break in­fect­ing top aides, staff and sen­a­tors.
