House Of Representatives Convenes For First Session Of 2019 To Elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) As Speaker Of The House

The hashtag #PresidentPelosi was trending Wednesday as Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified to the House Intelligence Committee in the impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump’s Ukrainian schemes for assistance in the 2020 election and implicated Vice President Mike Pence in the effort.

If Trump and Pence are both removed from office over their involvement in the plot, the next in line for the presidency is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“I’m fine with Pelosi serving as interim president until we hold an election,” tweeted activist Bree Newsom. “Both Trump and Pence are implicated in this conspiracy to extort Ukraine.”

In his testimony Wednesday, as Common Dreams reported, Sondland said that administration officials like Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were “in the loop” on Trump’s plan to pressure Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky to publicly announce an investigation into Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President and 2020 Democratic primary presidential candidate Joe Biden.

      I get the impulse behind this law, but the precedent can – and would – be weaponized to keep Democratic candidates (and candidates from other parties) off the ballot in swing states, using all imaginable pretexts.

    Watched today’s hearing faithfully, and I’m so happy it’s over. I sure do like to drive myself nuts.

    Tomorrow I’m free of that and I’m going grocery shopping, will pick up my turkey. When I get home, NO hearing on, phew.

    Pretty soon the mess that is Trump will be in the hands of the Senate and they’ll let him go, proving it’s bull shit that in this country, no one is above the law.

    Counted 10 RVs entering Pullman whilst erranding to the grocery store. Two neighbors already have Xmas decorations. After 16 minutes arrived at the Hillside Cafe which is almost deserted.

    The hearings made the point that cheeto-face is a crook and should be demoted to janitor to sweep up the trash he left behind, he and his loyal pugger dogs that is.
