Step one seems a bit imprecuse.
Step four is not possible. Remove Biden, Harris takes his place, and a new VP is installed. The two offices can not be vacant at the same time.

I have zero idea who this guy is or any of the 4 outlets he is promoting on his Twitter page. Never heard of any of them. I’d bet a month’s pay this guy is making this up to increase his social media presence. Worked on you.

"You can't do this without the military. You can't do this without the CIA and the FBI. We're the guys with the guns."

Partisan political generals are dangerous. This quote right here illustrates the importance of the 2nd Amendment.

Go4Broke's thought of the day: Not a single one of the people I called incorrigible pieces of shit have agreed to meet me halfway by adopting my political beliefs... What gives?

Trump has been a moron his entire life. Now he's a moron with an even stupider fan club. Don't forget the dementia. Dude is lost.
Enjoy.

“This is the biggest, the best, the most acreage, the most everything—the ocean, the lake, it fronts both,” the ever-boasting Trump said. “Mar-a-Lago is ocean-to-lake. Did you know that? Mar-a-Lago, ocean to lake. It’s the only place. See that window? That window, when that was built, is the largest pane of glass in the world, okay?”

“In a certain way, I had two presidencies,” he said. In the first, when the economy was roaring, Trump argued that he had been unbeatable, never mind that his approval rating was never higher than 46 percent in the Gallup poll during his first three years as president.

“I think it would be hard if George Washington came back from the dead and he chose Abraham Lincoln as his vice president, I think it would have been very hard for them to beat me,” Trump said.

Grandstanding is a lot easier when everyone agrees on the plan.

You are in favor of this, right? You have made it clear that you don’t think the FBI is doing it well enough so why wouldn’t it be the more committees the better?

A real Congressional investigation yes. Neither has nothing to do with what the FBI is doing. I don't know why you keep bringing that up.

But McCarthy is pouting, pitching a fit and taking his ball and going home because Nancy wouldn't put his two most ridiculous picks on the committee.

The minority has no subpoena power etc. to do a real investigation. This will be as legit as the Cyber Ninjas audit. The only purpose is to say "Nuh uh!" to whatever the real committee says.

Ah yes, the “real committee” that Pelosi hand picks to discover everything the FBI missed. I can see them yelling at folks on TV already. Not grandstanding at all.

Despite McCarthy's games, there will be at least two Republicans on it, Cheney and Kitzinger (sp).

Actually you mean because of Pelosi’s games there we’ll be at least two Republicans hand picked by her on the sham that is this committee.

Meet the members of the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection​



Bennie Thompson, chairman



Bennie Thompson, chairman

Democrat – Mississippi’s 2nd District

Serving in the House for a fifteenth term, since 1993

Other committees: Homeland Security

Thompson is also chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, and worked with the panel’s top Republican, Rep. John Katko of New York, to reach a compromise behind the legislation that would have created an independent commission to investigate the January 6 riot. That legislation passed the House but was killed in the Senate. Thompson has built much of his congressional career on the Homeland Security panel, defined by the fallout from devastating events like Hurricane Katrina and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.



Pete Aguilar



Pete Aguilar

Democrat – California’s 31st District

Serving in the House for a fourth term, since 2015

Other committees: Appropriations; House Administration

Aguilar was first elected to Congress in 2014, after serving as mayor of Redlands, California. He told CNN earlier this month members of the committee are united in following the truth and not letting politics dictate how it pursues its investigation. “I don’t get the sense that my colleagues worry this is going to be a circus,” Aguilar said.



Liz Cheney



Liz Cheney

Republican – Wyoming’s At-Large District

Serving in the House for a third term, since 2017

Other committees: Armed Services

Cheney was formerly the No. 3 member of House Republican leadership before a very public break with Trump following his role in inciting the January 6 riot. Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump earlier this year and has been an outspoken critic of both the former President and GOP lawmakers who support his “Big Lie” about the 2020 election. She was ousted from her leadership position in May.



Zoe Lofgren



Zoe Lofgren

Democrat – California’s 19th District

Serving in the House for a fourteenth term, since 1995

Other committees: House Administration; Judiciary; Science, Space and Technology

Lofgren has the unique distinction of having connections to all four presidential impeachment investigations of the modern era, serving as a staffer to Rep. Don Edwards, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, in 1974 during Richard Nixon’s impeachment, before being elected to the same seat two decades later. Lofgren was an impeachment manager for Trump’s first impeachment trial in 2020 – though not his second in 2021 – and has been a longtime member of the influential Judiciary Committee, including during Bill Clinton’s impeachment.



Elaine Luria



Elaine Luria

Democrat – Virginia’s 2nd District

Serving in the House for a second term, since 2019

Other committees: Armed Services; Veterans’ Affairs; Homeland Security

Luria served two decades in the Navy before winning a competitive election for her seat in 2018, flipping the district to Democratic control. “The goal was never to make this partisan,” she told CNN earlier this month after being named to the select committee. “We’re looking at this like the 9/11 commission. … This is about protecting our democracy.”



Stephanie Murphy



Stephanie Murphy

Democrat – Florida’s 7th District

Serving in the House for a third term, since 2017

Other committees: Ways and Means; Armed Services

Murphy is seen as a moderate and a rising star in Florida Democratic politics, who earlier this year announced she would not run for a competitive US Senate seat in her state. Before coming to Congress, she served as a national security specialist in the office of the Secretary of Defense.



Jamie Raskin



Jamie Raskin

Democrat – Maryland’s 8th District

Serving in the House for a third term, since 2017

Other committees: Judiciary; Oversight and Reform; House Administration; Rules

A constitutional law professor at American University, Raskin was a central figure in Trump’s second impeachment trial earlier this year where he was Democrats’ lead impeachment manager. His emotional testimony during the trial was a defining characteristic of Democrats’ case against Trump, and he repeatedly cited his and his family’s experience on January 6, when his daughter was forced into hiding in the Capitol, to underscore the seriousness of the insurrection.



Adam Schiff



Adam Schiff

Democrat – California’s 28th District

Serving in the House for an eleventh term, since 2001

Other committees: Intelligence

The chairman of the influential House Intelligence Committee, Schiff was the lead impeachment manager for Trump’s first impeachment trial in 2020. As Intel chairman he also oversaw multiple high-profile hearings during the impeachment proceedings featuring damning testimony over the former President’s attempt to find dirt on then presidential candidate Joe Biden.
