Yellen Refers To The Use Of The 14th Amendment As a “Constitutional Crisis”

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Sunday called the possibility of invoking the 14th Amendment a “constitutional crisis” after President Biden left open such an option amid stalled debt ceiling talks.

During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” anchor George Stephanopoulos repeatedly asked Yellen about whether Biden invoking the 14th Amendment in which he could continue issuing debt without raising the borrowing limit was on the table. She largely sidestepped the questions and laid the responsibility on Congress but alluded to the option as a dire choice.
