Once it comes out that Donald Trump treated the presidency like a casino funded by the Russians, even blinded Republicans will have to open their eyes.
VP Pence could always just declare the President batshit crazy and remove him with Congressional approval. The Constitution’s batshit crazy clause has never been invoked, not even when Nixon was licking the White House walls in the middle of the night. That other constitutional provision was invoked in that case — resign or we’ll do it for you.
Are Pence and other establishment Republicans in the White House yanking the clothes off their emperor, thread by gold thread, one leaky drip after another?
How interesting that Pence was able to so quickly and efficiently distance himself from Russian thuggery, making it known that Flynn apologized to him for lying about it.
And in the process place himself in the distance. Congressional GOP leaders would be among the first to welcome that.
