The anxiously anticipated impeachment report from the House Intelligence Committee is here. Chief Investigative Officer for Yahoo News, Michael Isikoff tweeted his first response. He noted that it concluded Vice President Mike Pence was likely involved in criminal activity. That means the two top members of the U.S. government would leave, but that means something else totally extraordinary, something never seen in the history of our America.
The title of the book Everything Trump Touches Dies’ sums up this administration beautifully. Donald Trump corrupts everyone around him. He has managed to operate much like a mob boss. POTUS sucks people in, then he seduces them into small acts against their own moral base. Next, he goes for a larger ethical break. Finally, he has them hooked, and few people ever escape Trump’s hook.
Isikoff tweeted that Vice President Pence could well be “knowledgeable of or an active participant” in Trump’s criminal activity:
‘First big takeaway from House intel report: It concludes that VP Pence– who would become POTUS if Trump is removed– was “either knowledgeable of or active participant” in conduct that is basis for impeachment.’
Pence has been first in line should Trump be impeached. Who was second in line should he become missing in action? House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would become the first woman president of the United States. Nice.
