Now this goes all the way back to a rumor or a theory that I heard, maybe in late summer or early fall. The scoop was that Deep State Democrats were going to impeach Trump, manufacture evidence and impeach Pence and that would mean the presidency would fall to the next in line, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. She then could appoint her Vice President. And we’ll leave that rumor there for now. At the time, I thought it a little far-fetched. But circumstances have changed.
Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Adam Schiff, claims to have “evidence” against VP Mike Pence. Under a headline that screamed “ADAM SCHIFF HAS UNFINISHED BUSINESS WITH MIKE PENCE” Newsweek reported “Schiff has said he will continue pushing to uncover evidence detailing Vice President Mike Pence’s involvement in President Donald Trump’s alleged efforts to extort Ukraine.” [Of course, despite claims to the contrary, Schiff has produced no meaningful evidence of collusion with the Russians – or – threats to withhold aid from Ukraine – except the opinionated musings of secondary and hearsay witnesses.[i]] Politicus tells us that Schiff is claiming that the classified evidence he “acquired” – was only classified to affect a cover-up to protect the Vice President. Schiff asserted that “it just goes to show that there is a body of evidence, documentary and otherwise that administration figures from the president on down to include the vice president do not want the American people to see or know. And the question is will they succeed? Will the cover-up succeed.”[ii] [There you have it, the claim of a Watergate-like cover-up!….Ah, it’s all looking just so Nixonian.] But the publication Red State paints us the true picture of what is going on. “Even the Washington Post was forced to call him out twice for his falsehoods over his Ukraine claims, giving him four Pinocchios for lying about his contacts with the whistleblower and three Pinocchios for lying about the whistleblower’s right to anonymity.”[iii] [Boy, you really have to be doing something wrong to be a Leftist Deep State Dem in good standing – and get called out by the Washington Post. Good job Adam!]
Oh, and just for the moment let’s return to the rest of that theory mentioned at the top of the article. We’ll look at the scenario laid out by Mike Adams of Natural News, along with others. They believe some Democrats are prepared to move against the President and VP without completing the impeachment process in the Senate, where it appears to have little chance of succeeding. An illegal arrest of the two would be staged and Pelosi installed as President. She would then appoint Hillary Clinton as Vice President and promptly resign, overturning the results of the 2016 election. Weapons confiscations and roundups of ‘domestic terrorists’ who resist would follow. I thought it all a bit beyond the pale when I heard it months ago. And then Adam Schiff started to go after Pence….Mmmmm!
