Washington (CNN)Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has privately confided that he believes President Donald Trump only has a 30% chance of completing his full term, a source told Vanity Fair.
According to two of Vanity Fair's sources with knowledge of the conversation, Bannon warned Trump several months ago that the biggest threat to his presidency is not impeachment by Congress, but the 25th Amendment -- which could allow his Cabinet to vote to remove him.
CNN has been unable to independently confirm these reported conversations. Bannon could not be reached for comment.
The 25th Amendment to the Constitution is a measure that establishes a system for replacing the president or vice president in case there is a death, removal, resignation or incapacitation.
Also, if the vice president "and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide" make a "written declaration that the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the vice president shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as acting president."

Name sources...or it’s BS
I think there may be a 70% chance Trump resigns in disgust before his term ends - but only by his choice,
cfnn and “unnamed sources.”
The very definition of fake news!
“..CNN has been unable to independently confirm these reported conversations...”
Scat talking. Two scummy outfits talking trash.
Stupid and it’s BS
I was like.. What?
Then I saw CNN as the source.
Never mind... :)
But CNN published the allegation anyway? That's scummy.
Full court press of fake news.
The NWO Globalists (read communists) are freaking out that this movement is erasing 100 years of progressivism, and everything Obama did.
Vanity Fair and CNN...the most trusted names in fake news...
Not necessarily BS even coming from CNN and without named sources. We just don’t know.
It wouldn’t surprise me if it were a real risk and that Bannon was cognizant of it as a real risk.
Yada Yada !
Discredit Brannon in trying to keep the uni party of establishment, self serving politicians in power. The sleeping citizens have been rousted- thank you Hillary, NFL, McCain, illegals, universities, public schools, as well as BLM, for making it clear your objective is to destroy our country.
“I was like.. What?
Then I saw CNN as the source.
Never mind... :)”
Yeah, agree.... If Trumps impeachment and subsequent removal should actually happen the country would explode into absolute turmoil. Talk about a constitutional crisis. Well, we would certainly have one. And, what the outcome would be would be totally unpredictable for sure....
CNN has been unable to independently confirm these reported conversations. = FAKE NEWS
Great shades of Dan Rather - “fake but true”.....
That's the part that causes me to conclude this story is Fake News. There is no way Trump does not know what the 25th Amendment is. No way.
Tell me about it, I don’t know how he deals with this crap day in day out, and to think: He isn’t taking a salary for it.
