Trump will Leave White House One Way or Another

Trump will leave, impeachment, resign

President Trump will leave the White House within 7 days one way or another. Passions run high about his remaining options.

The WSJ editorial page wants him to resign. Nancy Pelosi demanded that Mike Pence invoke the 25th amendment. But Pence said no – the same answer he gave when Trump pressured him to overturn the election. Now Pelosi wants a second Trump impeachment.

A Monday Quinnipiac survey found that 89% of Democrats want Trump frogmarched now. But 87% of Republicans are opposed. And 73% of Republican still believe there was “widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.”

If a big chunk of the population thinks the election was illegitimate what will they think of impeachment?

But if he’s not impeached does that mean loser presidents get a free pass from election day to inauguration day?

No penumbras or emanations for Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Just the facts of the constitution, ma’am:

Amy Coney Barrett remarks after her SCOTU nomination by President Trump

She clerked for Justice Scalia but she’ll be filling Justice Ginsburg’s seat, if confirmed. While Judge Barrett shares Scalia’s conservative legal philosophy, she also admires the “warm and rich friendship” he shared with the liberal and Notorious RBG.

Nothing off the Table in Supreme Court Battle

Pelosi’s quiver is full and nothing is off the table according to Chuck Schumer. We’re “going to the mattresses,” says Dan Henninger in the WSJ. Apparently that would include ending the electoral college, the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court.
