The 1987 Constitution states that "in case of serious illness of the President, the public shall be informed of the state of his health." The phrase is silent on what counts as a "serious illness." How did PH presidents handle their own health concerns?

1) Pelosi letter to House Dems in case the presidential election is pitched into the House under the 12th Amendment to the Constitution:

@arianne_merez  Roque on proposed suspension of #Halalan2022 : It can never be an option for Malacañang unless the Constitution is amended | via @arianne_merez 

Roque: Delaying the 2022 elections can never be an option unless the Constitution is amended. #PHvote  READ more in this Rappler explainer:

Comelec chief Sheriff Abas said the proposal must come from Congress since it involves amendment of the Constitution. | @KAguilarINQ 

@maradestiney  @NancyPelosiMay  I direct you to Article 1, Section 7, Clause 1 of the US Constitution? It specifies exactly where all such bills must originate.

With the Sri Lankan government presenting in Parliament the draft of the proposed 20th amendment to the constitution, another step toward the constitutional dismantling of democracy in the country has been taken.

7) Pelosi: If Trump can’t win at the ballot box, he wants the House to deliver him the presidency.    The Constitution says that a candidate must receive a majority of the state delegations to win.  We must achieve that majority of delegations or keep the GOPers from doing so.

"We shouldn't be putting people on the court that share our policy preferences. We should be putting people on the court who want to apply the Constitution." - Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Our new Constitution is now established, everything seems to promise it will be durable; but, in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes. — Benjamin Franklin 1789 (he was apparently half-right about certainties)

Today, it was my great honor to nominate one of our nation’s most brilliant and gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court. She is a woman of unparalleled achievement, towering intellect, sterling credentials, and unyielding loyalty to the Constitution: Judge Amy Coney Barrett...

If Nancy Pelosi tries to impeach President Trump for appointing a Supreme Court Justice—as the Constitution requires him to do—we will take steps to remove her as Speaker.

What the hell is happening in Portland, and why isn't every American who believes in the constitution, states rights, federalism, freedom, individual liberty and rule of law not screaming for answers loudly? Yes, Republican leaders, I mean you especially.

I’ve known Senator@KamalaHarris  for a long time. She is more than prepared for the job. She’s spent her career defending our Constitution and fighting for folks who need a fair shake. This is a good day for our country. Now let’s go win this thing.

Donald Trump must be convicted and removed from office. Because he will always choose his own personal interest over our national interest. Because in America, right matters. Truth matters. If not, no Constitution can protect us. If not, we are lost.

Against the wishes of state and local officials, unmarked federal agents in combat gear have invaded parts of Portland, Oregon. This is what a police state looks like. These troops must be withdrawn immediately. We must defend the Constitution. We must defeat Trump.

It is a sad day for America to see Senator McConnell humiliate the Chief Justice of the United States into presiding over a vote which rejected our nation’s judicial norms, precedents and institutions which uphold the Constitution and the rule of law.

TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE: This is the beginning of the end of the abuse of the Constitution. The Senate will provide a fair trial for @realDonaldTrump . #impeachment  #ArticlesOfImpeachment  #ImpeachmentTrial  #senate  #SenateImpeachmentTrial 

By joining a resolution to dismiss, Sen. McConnell showed his true colors. Americans have now seen what is at stake in a fair trial with witnesses & evidence, and new evidence has emerged. Every Senator will have to vote: is their loyalty is to the President or the Constitution?

I stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values & our Constitution. This is not who we are.
