Let It Go! Newsweek Claims Hillary Can Still be President

 In opinion, Politics

Newsweek and a Harvard law professor are taking flack for making a case for the idea that Hillary Clinton could become President if Trump and Pence are impeached for Russian collusion. Their whole idea is not Constitutional, as there is a legal succession to the Presidency, but they apparently live in hope…or an alternate universe.

Lawrence Lessig, the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, outlined a strange, convoluted path to the Presidency that could never happen to Newsweek, who printed it in their magazine. They probably quivered with excitement over every word. Where was this guy’sΒ JD law degree from? Believe it or not, Yale. His resume is impressive, but his statements are definitely off the beam. Should we accuse him of dementia?

Fox News reported,

“If President Trump resigns or gets impeached, Vice President Mike Pence resigns or is impeached and House Speaker Paul Ryan – who would legally become the heir to the top job – appoints Clinton as his deputy and then resigns, Clinton would become the president, the professor said.”

That’s a giant-sized leap right there, one that should provide Harvard with a great opportunity to quietly put Lessig away. You remember when Newsweek printed up the “Madam President” edition and found out that Trump won the election…they’re still sore about that apparently.
