Mike Pence is going to pick the next POTUS, and it ain't gonna be him...

He is balls deep in this Russian thing, but if/when 45 goes, unless Pence is IMMEDIATELY removed with him (which won't happen), Pence will be picking his veep, and THAT person will be the next POTUS.

Even if we drag this out unto 2018, Pence is *STILL* going to get to pick his own veep.

He is *literally* a traitorous king (sic) maker.

1. I think they're all going down together.

 

Pres Hatch, possibly. And that's if his name doesn't float to the surface as the money laundering investigation grinds on.

Hatch is a sleazy dirty snake too.
I'm just waiting for the corruption trail to get him too.

They are all so complicit.

10. Ryan is in as deep as any. It will be Hatch.

 

Pence, Ryan and McTurtle are all going down.

6. I don't think they will be able to take them down together...

I just don't think so.

Pence is POTUS maker.

3. Could be lots of victims!

"In the aftermath of Richard Nixon’s resignation, Watergate continued to claim victims.
The final toll included:

one presidential resignation

one vice-presidential resignation – although Agnew’s crimes were unrelated to Watergate

40 government officials indicted or jailed

http://watergate.info/analysis/casualties-and-convictions

The crime doesn't even have to be associated with the Russia crimes, it could be anything the FBI picks up on. The GOPee is such a target rich zone...

4. If pence

is not ousted before trump, he will be our president until 2018. I don't believe they will impeach 2 presidents in a row.

17. No. He will only be able to be re-elected once, if it is less than 1/2 way through the first term. n

9. Unless, of course, Trump picks the next VP. Who's going down first?

Hopefully Pence, so he never goes down in history as POTUS.

13. Well, an outside chance of a loophole

If/when Pence ascends to the POTUS spot he nominates a person to take his VP slot. That person needs to be approved by a majority vote of both houses of Congress. If the Dems can gum up the works long enough to get Pence out before a VP is confirmed, then I'm pretty sure the Speaker of the House ascends to POTUS if/when Pence goes.

Theoretically, if it took till mid Jan, 2019 to do all this (and I hope it happens way sooner). The Dems could take the House in the '18 election and the Speaker who would move into the White House would be a Democrat.

14. If DT45 leaves and Pence becomes POTUS46 he will recommend his VP and the House will need a 2/3 vote

to confirm. So the House really appoints the new VP.

16. The rumor is floating about that if Pence goes before Trump

that Trump will pick Ivanka and then Trump will be impeached and we'll have our first female President (I've seen this crazy theory floating about on the Interwebs, so you know, it must be true).
