Essay by conservative columnist Ross Douthat

The piece by Mr. Douthat, the New York Times columnist, is pretty startling.  It is titled: "The 25th Amendment Solution to Remove Trump."

CNN Sunday interview with James Clapper

From the CNN video, below:

"I think in many ways our institutions are under assault, both externally -- and that's the big news here, is Russian interference in our election system -- and I think as well our institutions are under assault internally," said former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, on Jake Tapper's CNN Sunday program State of the Union.

"Internally, from the President?" asked Tapper. Said Clapper: "Exactly."
