Republicans have yet to realize, as of today ,who becomes POTUS after Pence and Trump are impeached.
Talk about sum of all Republican fears.
Republicans don’t even think about it because they know there is nothing to impeach them for.
To Republicans denial is a way of life. To Democrats, it's a river in Egypt.
So what is he going to be impeached for? Stealing a democratic primary? Receiving the questions in advance of a Presidential debate? Illegal eaves dropping on a political opponent? And on and on ? NOPE THOSE WERE democrats!!!
Isn't that why Muller is conducting an investigation? To see if Trump committed an impeachable offense?
And can you provide sources for your ridiculous claims or is that just more rhetoric from the extremists?
Mueller was originally given the task of investigating Russian interference into the elections. It appears to have mushroomed into a Lavrentiy Beria style hunt for "show me the man and I will find the crime." Stalin would be so proud.
I suggest you take note of the ACTUAL responsibilities assigned to Mueller by Rod Rosenstein. The assignment is described in Rod Rosenstein's Appointment Order, which refers to 28 CFR 600.4(a), the regulation that prescribes the requirements for appointing of a Special Counsel. For your convenience, I have copied below the pertinent part of that regulation, dealing with the scope of the Special Counsel's investigation. See especially item (b). Further below is a link to Rosenstein's Appointment Order.
(a)Original jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall be established by the Attorney General. The Special Counsel will be provided with a specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall also include the authority to investigate and prosecute federal crimes committed in the course of, and with intent to interfere with, the Special Counsel's investigation, such as perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses; and to conduct appeals arising out of the matter being investigated and/or prosecuted.
(b)Additional jurisdiction. If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel concludes that additional jurisdiction beyond that specified in his or her original jurisdiction is necessary in order to fully investigate and resolve the matters assigned, or to investigate new matters that come to light in the course of his or her investigation, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General, who will determine whether to include the additional matters within the Special Counsel's jurisdiction or assign them elsewhere.
(c)Civil and administrative jurisdiction. If in the course of his or her investigation the Special Counsel determines that administrative remedies, civil sanctions or other governmental action outside the criminal justice system might be appropriate, he or she shall consult with the Attorney General with respect to the appropriate component to take any necessary action. A Special Counsel shall not have civil or administrative authority unless specifically granted such jurisdiction by the Attorney General.
Beria and Stalin were never so specifically constrained as they went about their purges.
