Here's a weird one I've just heard.

GOP long game is to get Pence in the Oval Office by impeaching Trump within a year.

Thats one hell of a plan, considering they could have just had Pence run and handily beat Hillary. but ok.

Weak conspiracy.

Here's a better one.

Comey reopened servergate to help Clinton.

Fact: trump was coming up in the polls prior.

Fact: wiki leaks had just made a big dump that was bad for Clinton

Speculation: servergate took wiki leaks out of the news with old news that people were already very familiar with.

Bill threw the election by meeting with Lynch on the tarmac so that Comey would have to take over know that Comey would take his wife down.

Bill is still hoping Hillary does time and he can get on with being single..

Dude. Mine is real.

Edit: being rsp and all. I suppose I should clarify I don't buy it. Comey was in a tight spot. No matter what he did would be controversial.

I'm not one for conspiracy theories, but knowing Bill Clinton ... I could see this one. Maybe he's banging the AG?

This conspiracy pretty much assumes the GOP leadership is trying to work around a Trump candidacy, though, presumably since they couldn't stop that part. They did try (and fail) to stop that part, after all.

Not that I buy the conspiracy theory, mind you.

It wouldn't actually be that difficult to accomplish. However a VP subbed in for an impeached president would be virtually powerless. The fallout from a Trump impeachment would precipitate sweeping changes in the Senate and House. The cloud of scandal hanging over Pence would render him useless.

They didn't specify, so your guess is as good as mine.

How about nothing?

The 25th Amendment wrote:
Section 4.

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.


Not impeachment, but broad enough they could get rid of Trump for not falling in line or just spite. I doubt if it will come to that officially, but I can see Trump resigning for "health reasons" after a year to 18 months.

You seem to be ignoring that the voters would actually have had to vote for him in the primaries. At best Pence would have just taken some voters from Trump and others from Cruz.

Is this a future crime or one you think he already committed like Hillary did?

TYT, although TYT isn't as much into conspiracy theories, it is definitely "militant left" though. Obviously TYT isn't new, but it has been steadily gaining influence over the last 15 years, becoming pretty important now, especially with the millennials.
