Many of us wish we could simply remove Trump & Pence and install Clinton (or Sanders) as president, but I believe if the presidency was simply handed over to Clinton, we would likely have a violent revolution on our hands. In any event, the constitution would not allow for that.
both Trump AND Pence were found to have knowingly colluded with the
Russians, and both resigned or were impeached and found guilty, the
best result would be, IMO, another election. During any interim period
presumably Ryan would become president unless he too were found to have
been involved with Russia. That would leave us with a President Tillerson. Oh goody!
Again, I don't know if the
constitution would allow for another election. Congress would, I
suppose, have to enact new legislation approved by both houses, signed
by whoever sits in the Oval Office and probably it would have to survive
Supreme Court challenges.
All that could take a great
deal of time, and considering that the majority of the players in this
scenario would still be Republicans, its success would be very much in
doubt. It could actually take years to resolve, maybe involving a
constitutional amendment. In the mean time the country could go down
the tubes. It all sucks.
