CNN Plants Seeds of ‘President Pelosi’ with Inexcusably Speculative Impeachment Coverage

We have certainly heard some strange accusations flying around Capitol Hill as of late, but this one is a veritable doozy.

CNN, the network that invented the entire infotainment genre, now believes that the Democrats could hit a double jackpot and impeach Vice President Mike Pence at the same time as Donald Trump.

This would set up a nightmare scenario for Republicans everywhere:  President Nancy Pelosi.

The fantasy outcome is contained in an opinion piece by Paul Callan, a contributor and CNN legal analyst.

He speculates Trump and Pence could possibly both be drawn into the Ukraine inquiry, leaving the way clear under constitutional law for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to ascend the White House steps as Commander-in-Chief. He writes:

What might follow could be a double impeachment scenario that would make heads spin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the president of the United States. After Pence, she’s next in the line of succession.

The author then throws cold water on the wild speculation.

He then immediately concedes this may be just a dream because if Trump and Pence were both implicated in the scandal and Pence’s resignation or removal from office occurred first, “Trump could nominate a new vice president under the 25th Amendment.”

Just weeks ago, after President Trump made mention of Pence during his defense of a July 25th call with Ukraine, #PresidentPelosi began trending on Twitter.  Members of the Democratic “resistance” were obviously smitten with the idea of undoing the 2016 election, thus propagating the unrealistic scenario throughout social media.
