Most interesting, but we would not have two full years of Pence even it this scenario unfolds exactly as Reich's Republican friend describes.

The House impeachment proceedings and the drama of a trial in the Senate would take at least, what?, six months, maybe longer. Legislation would mostly grind to a halt. Foreign adversaries of the American Empire would be at least somewhat emboldened.

What’s interesting to me is how fast the Trump Administration is unraveling. Just in the last couple of weeks, two cabinet members and the chief of staff gone. It does really look like rats abandoning a sinking ship.

But I don’t know. The devil is in the details of Mueller’s findings, and we don’t know what those will be yet. The Republican may be right in saying if the economy tanks, then enough Republicans may turn on Trump at the behest of their oligarchical donors. If that does happen, then I hope the Republican is right in saying Pence would pardon Trump.

That would seal Pence’s doom in 2020 if he gets the Republican nomination, just like it did Jerry Ford in 1976.
