    After the reporting about Mike Pence also being involved in strong arming the Ukrainian govt--along with his boss of course--this puts the Speaker of the House in direct line to being the first female POTUS in American history.

    Ironically, the people who hate her the most have made this possible by putting a criminal in the Whitehouse. Be careful what you wish for, righties!  lol

      It's a shocking possibility, but I don't think Pelosi is dumb enough to take it that far, even if there is proof that Pence broke the law.

        I'm not sure Pelosi would want to be President.

          Agreed. I think she's also smart enough to know that pushing out both Trump and Pence would be an overreach, just like the Republicans did with Bill Clinton.

          Now Trump is throwing Pence under the bus. It will damage Pence's credibility if he gets the nomination next year instead of Trump.

      It would not be very democratic. I hate those constructions that the second person in power automatically becomes president. If a president fails to hold a government for whatever reason there should be a new election.
      It's incredibly undemocratic. The UK has a Prime Minister who is not chosen by the people but by the elite of the party.
      With a system like this the result can be that the second person in command could want the first person in the party want to fail.

        I agree. I believe at first the president was from the winning party and the Veep was the loser, but that didn't work. So they concocted a new law that they would have to run as pres and veep from the same party. It only makes sense that if the pres commits a criminal act, Clinton excepted, that the veep is probably implicated. (Which makes it all the more stupid and political that Clinton was impeached for a sexual offense, which is something Trump openly brags about.)

    roll

    If that comes to fruition I know the first memo the white house staff will put out.

    HIDE THE LIQUOR.

      Do you think Trump's WH staff likes working for him? It certainly doesn't seem that way. I heard they have to hide their wives and daughters.

        Ok. I realize my comment was insulting, without clear evidence. As is yours.

        But, there's another thought. If they have to hide their wives and daughters with Trump, if Biden wins whatever will they do? Probably send them into hiding out of DC.

                  Good to hear Live and Learn, but not all men talk like that. Only men who have no respect for women and see them only as a sex objects talk like that. I don't think you can say "all men", that's simply not true. And Trump is not all men but represent the USA, and so he also has to represent all the women of the USA. A bit more respect wouldn't be a bad thing would it?

                    If you've never said something in one setting that might seem inappropriate in another....wait a minute. Everyone has done that.


                    I'd recommend growing up.

        You're spot on about his staff. They're spilling the beans left and right.

        No pun intended.

      Well, It was leaked by the WH that George Bush was on Antabuse and couldn't be trusted near the liquor cabinet.

        So the memo may still be around. That'll save paper.
