Trump in a peach.

What shall he do when they remove him from power? Who takes over, Mike Pence or do they impeach him as well?

That's just peachy by anonimouse (2.00 / 0) #1 Thu Dec 19, 2019 at 09:10:22 AM EST
 I think Trump is guilty but I don't think impeaching him was the right decision. I believe they should have just let this hang around till election time.

What is simply going to happen is the Senate will have a joke trial, the Republican majority will declare him not guilty and the air will be clear by the time the election comes around, except for Democrats crying 'lock him up'

But I agree with impeaching him. Only doing what's politically expedient is what's completely fucked up the GOP.

That is what I thought by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Dec 19, 2019 at 08:47:25 PM EST
but a friend told me they might just hold the impeachment at the House and not give it to the Senate until after elections so that Dems take the Senate.

Then again the US government lists Wakanda as a free trade partner:

Trump will be then in an excellent position to claim he didn't get a fair trial and it was politically biased.

Trump isn't going to be removed by aphrael (4.00 / 2) #3 Thu Dec 19, 2019 at 04:08:14 PM EST
the Senate will not convict.

But if he were to be removed, speaking as a die hard liberal gay man who lives in san francisco, pence would be a massive, massive, massive improvement. he would be the policies i dislike without the narcissistic authoritarianism which is undermining the republic.

that Pence won't be worse? He has kept to himself mostly staying silent and letting Trump do the talking.

Pence and Trump both have records by lm (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Dec 20, 2019 at 07:33:31 AM EST
So far in office, Trump has done virtually everything Pence has in his playbook. So on that level, it's hard to imagine that Pence would worse than Trump on those issues.

Yeah but by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri Dec 20, 2019 at 10:04:38 PM EST
I don't hear people saying stuff about Pence like they do Trump. Maybe impeach them both and let the Speaker of the House take over as President Nancy Pelosi?

Pence is lesser known, that's true by lm (4.00 / 1) #9 Sat Dec 21, 2019 at 06:32:24 AM EST
But he has a record from he was governor of Indiana. So it's pretty easy to compare Pence's words and deeds to Trump's words and deeds.

You'd be hard pressed to find a situation where Pence is worst than Trump.
