So what are the rules for appointing a new vp?
Like if he threw pence under the bus offially and he goes down first. Then Pelosi is second in line, but for how long?
Otherwise pence and trump have to go down together to get #presidentpelosi.
I mean ford got to pick a vp. But can’t remember how long that took or the rules. And I’m too crazed today to look it up right now
I think "it" is somewhat vague... and unlikely to happen because the GOP will most likely not choose to remove Trump from office.
However: Generally speaking "if" Trump was removed from office AND Pence's knowledge/involvement was considered to be substantial then the succession would move to Speaker of the House.
In Nixon's situation, Agnew was already removed for other issues... Ford came in to replace Agnew, and was clearly on the "outside" of any and all related events (either by Nixon or Agnew). So, Ford was "safe" and clearly became president.
In the case of Trump... the questions might be something like:
> Was Pence involved... did he know anything "important"... etc
> Or is Pence in the clear & Trump is just s*** talking as usual..
> Would Pence go 1st, giving Trump time to select a VP that would step in as President.
Of course it is all speculation and supposition at this point.
