NANCY Pelosi is "trying to stop an 'unstable President Trump'" from launching a nuclear attack.
A letter from the House Speaker to other members of Congress reveals fears that he "may order a strike."
In her letter, Pelosi cited a "horrific assault on our Democracy" following riots at the Capitol that left five dead.
"This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike," Pelosi wrote.
"The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.
Pelosi's letter came amid discussions from her and other members of Congress on impeaching Trump – for a second time – following the deadly riots.
