This. Is. Inane. Blather.
Sure, it's been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there's still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president.And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again.Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of "if/then" scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton.
They kid you not - this is real. At least to them.
Here's how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out:If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or be impeached.If number 2: If Trump is removed, Vice President Mike Pence would become president.If number 3: If Pence becomes president, he should resign too, given that he benefited from the same help from Mother Russia.If number 4: If Pence resigns before appointing a vice president, Ryan would become president.If number 5: If Ryan becomes president, he should do the right thing and choose Clinton for vice president. Then he should resign.
To be fair, this is from a Harvard law professor and a 'mainstream media' publication, not Democrats in Washington, but based on the actions of Democrats in Washington, they secretly agree with the writing. These are the type of people that Republicans have to work with to govern the country. How do you work with people who harbor fantasies like this? Answer: you don't.
