The more I think about it, the more sure I am Trump and Pence are planning for the very real possability the president-elect will not finish his term due to impeachment or resignation (there is a precident for both from Andrew Jackson, Richard Nixon and almost Bill Clinton). As a reminder, Trump is scheduled to stand trial on December 13 to answer to sexual assault charges. Even if that “goes away”, Trump has pending litigation over the course of the next year and a half as well for similar reasons. Naturally, he will be forced to resign or be impeached should he be convicted–which is a real possbility–a reality Trump and Pence would naturally plan for and around.
I will end with this: This is not a forshadowing and I don’t want this to be viewed in that way. I’m just stating my opinion based on a feeling that may end up being nothing at all. I felt felt this way so suddenly and so strongly, I felt I had to share it publicly.
