Hahaha Stone is calling in live to Infowars to beg for money for his legal defense fund. The grifting never, ever stops.

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.
exactly and to be honest, all the suspicion's been about Trump and his cohorts.  Other than telling blatant lies in support of Trump's moronic comments, I've yet to see or hear anything that would suggest Pence has done anything wrong or at least illegal. 

if Trump were actually impeached (doubtful unless there's 100% conclusive proof he's an active Russian operative -- I don't see anything less getting Senate Republicans to convict), we'll have president Pence until the end of the term.  question would be at that point in 2020 if Pence would run or step aside for a more-electable Rep candidate.

And Trump's already pushing the same conspiracy online. Not that they needed Greta to come up with it but it's spreading rapidly. Grossly irresponsible for a reporter.


I gotta give Roger some credit for this, leaving the courthouse today:



Fun fact, he has a tattoo of Nixon's face on his back. If "Get Me Roger Stone" is still on Netflix it's definitely worth checking out.

So any chance that Trump reopening the govt was an attempt to change the headlines from the Stone indictment?  He seems to do it every time when Mueller Friday bad news hits him.

Maybe.  I also think the air traffic controller thing was gonna be real bad.   That was bubbling to the surface this morning.

Yes. See what he does is try and control the narrative so instead of the Sunday morning talk shows discussing Roger Stone, you will now hear the narrative about government re-open and hammering home the 'stats' about the false humanitarian crisis

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.

TP. A positive born from the negative.

When all is said and done Trump will go down as one of bottom 3 worst presidents of all time. BUT...his time in office will have brought to light so much ugliness in the government, in the private sector and the issues of hatred and violence in the public; that we can only go up! We will be better as a nation in our efforts to distance ourselves and make better from the Trump presidency. I believe good things will rise from the 4 years of ashes that we are currently choking on.

Utter fantasy, not happening.  Besides doesn't the President of the Senate, Pro Tempore become the speakers VP?   Ah. I forgot they don't teach Civics anymore.

So, no Hillary, the VP would be Orrin Hatch, ouch!   Not quite according to the plan, eh?

If Stone is guilty they should nail him.
