Here is how the conspiracy works:
1) Remove BOTH Trump and Pence via impeachment.
2) Pelosi, as Speaker of the House, becomes President.
3) Pelosi chooses Hilary as Vice President.
4) Pelosi resigns.
Yes, it's complete bat-guano crazy paranoid alt-right nut-case stuff.
But technically there is a legal path.
You'd have to remove them both simultaneously without either appointing anyone to the VP spot. It'd require simultaneous trials in the Senate, or at least verdicts. There's only a legal path on paper.
Yes. But that doesn't stop the nut-cases.
RE: Stone, anyone paying attention saw this coming - he said multiple times over the last several months he expected to be indicted. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Pretty darkly funny that all these crooked political operatives like Stone and Manafort got away with all sorts of shady and criminal stuff for decades, right up until they hitched their wagons to Trump. Feels like a Coen Brothers movie.
In Stone's case, as well as a few others, they have had their wagons hitched to Trump for a long time. And were getting away with all this sort of stuff for decades. That's why they act like they are invulnerable. They've never had a reason to NOT do business in the shady, sordid ways that they have been doing because this way has always just worked for them.
What has changed now isn't Trump. It is now that Trump dragged their wagons to the White House. And this put them in the spotlight like never before and people who have power to actually do something to stop them are looking at them with that spotlight.
