Jim Acosta: Yeah, Chris. And I think there is a lot to analyze about all of this. I’ll try to walk-through it as best as I can. But I’m hearing from a well-placed Republican source there have been preliminary conversations going on inside the cabinet among some cabinet members about invoking the 25th amendment of the Constitution to force the removal of President Trump from office. Now, that is a dramatic step. It’s never been taken before, and it’s something that hasn’t really been contemplated until really today with the events that we saw unfolding up on Capitol Hill. I am told that this talk of using the 25th amendment to force President Trump from office has reached Capitol Hill. There are some Republican senators who have been briefed on this who understand that these discussions are taking place and so word is spreading that this may end up happening. Now, the process is complicated, Chris. The vice president and a majority of the cabinet would have to determine that the president is unable to carry out the duties of his office. The president could contest that and then it would go to the Congress and you would need, I think, a two-thirds vote in each house in the house and the Senate for the president to be removed from office.
