The Only Way to Get Rid of Trump Before Next Election

There are only two ways to get Trump out of the White House before the next election. (Only two ways I would advocate.) *One* is of course impeachment, which sadly won’t work unless we can overwhelmingly change congress in the next election and that’s unlikely. *Two* is a real possibility: He’s found to have broken an important law in an egregious fashion, something that can be definitively proven (claims of treason etc, are hard to prove in court; claims of fraud re the university, easy for him to wriggle out of). For example, it might be proven he literally raped a young girl–he has been accused of it by someone who was too frightened to pursue her lawsuit–or, perhaps we could prove in court he’s engaged in a serious malfeasance forbidden by the espionage act…Or he could be clearly proven to be guilty another major crime. It must be something definitively provable and clear-cut…

If you can expose that degree of evidence-supported criminality, and indict him (it’s hard to convict a sitting president but he can be indicted) then you can force Trump into resigning in return for a pardon; think of Richard Nixon. This threatens impeachment but would be a way of avoiding the actual long and doubtful process of impeachment…President Absurdity knows this and it’s why he’s rushing to replace the head of the CIA, so he can end their investigation of his pre-election relationship with Russia. However, he will of course set up his own version of the Department of Justice, which–unless he accidentally appoints someone with a conscience–will undermine any prosecution of him.

If you succeed, then you’ve got Pence. But I doubt Pence would be elected for the following term.
