As if it weren’t bizarre enough that the liberal left believed that they would impeach President Trump, they are now insinuating that they will also remove him from office and take Vice President Mike Pence down at the same time.
No, this isn’t some fan faction concocted by the AOC fanboys in The Beltway. This is a very real belief being disseminated by the radical left via the once-trending hashtag #PresidentPelosi.
You see, if the President and Vice President are removed from office in the same fell legislative swoop, the Speaker of The House would then reside in the West Wing and act as Commander in Chief.
Now the once-venerable newspaper The Washington Post has thrown their weight behind the idea.
The Washington Post unveiled a column Monday, speculating whether Pelosi could become president if President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence left office.
The writers, Robert Atkins and Adam Frankel, noted that it remains “far-fetched” that Trump and Pence could be forced from office over “abuse of power related to the administration’s dealings with Ukraine or other misdeeds.”
The Post piece arises as Democrats have moved towards an impeachment inquiry into Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In the conversation, Trump asked Zelensky about a former Ukrainian prosecutor’s investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his shady business dealings.
And just why do these reporters believe the Pence will be so easily dismissed?
The writers contended that because Pence has appeared to be a “witness” to the president’s conversation with Zelensky, the “prospect of the House speaker’s ascension is not as remote at is seemed just a week ago.”
No official actions have been taken that affect Vice President Pence’s status as of this writing.
Furthermore, President Trump has denied all wrongdoing in the matter, providing Congress with any an all documents that, so far, have been requested.
