If Trump Colluded, Will Hillary Take Over?
by John Lawrence
What if Mueller concludes that Trump and his henchmen colluded with Russia to "get dirt on Hillary"? Would that open the door for Trump's removal from office and/or a redo of the election? Unfortunately no, even though Hillary has indicated that that should be the outcome. However, there is no mechanism in the US Constitution for removal of Trump except by Congress. Since the Republicans control Congress, Democrats just don't have the votes to impeach Trump. So Trump's being impeached and removed from office is just a pipe dream unless you want to rewrite the US Constitution or have a revolution.
In fact Trump could commit high crimes and misdemeanors, and nothing would be done about it for the same reason. We're stuck with Trump until he's voted out of office or until Democrats control Congress. Too bad for Hillary. We'll just have to wait till 2018 and/or 2020 and see what happens.
Happy New Year!
