    Proposed "Take it or leave it" deal to the GOP, since an impeachment "two-fer" won't work.

    No, as much as we would relish the prospect of a President Pelosi, thinking we could take down both Trump and Pence in one fell swoop just isn't going to happen. The Republicans won't willfully cede the White House, and trying a two-fer would probably be the one way to guarantee Trump's skin gets saved, at least through 2020.

    But here me out here....if the evidence against Trump continues to grow to preposterous levels....here's what I suggest we put on the table to the GOP that might get them to nix Trump.

    1. After Trump is impeached by the House, Republican senators agree to remove Trump.
    2. Pence--who is either tangentially involved or a really useful idiot in this mess--is allowed to succeed Trump as President, BUT.....
    3. He can't issue a Ford-like pardon to Trump, AND
    4. Republicans have to agree to nominate someone other than Pence for 2020.

    Think about it for all sides involved, not just ours.

    Democrats get to kick Trump out of office. Pence isn't removed but is relegated to a one-year lame duck presidency with a House that will likely block any agenda of his. Republicans, who have been saddled with the Trump legacy, have a chance for a fresh start in 2020 by nominating someone uninvolved in all of this mess. (Good luck trying to get the public to forget that Trump was once your guy, though.)

    It just seems like a win-win for everyone involved whose name isn't Donald Trump. And seriously, screw that guy and all he's done to us.

    I know we want to burn them all to the ground, but practically speaking, this might work out as the best, most realistic outcome for us.

    1. I proposed something similar a few weeks ago.

    I think a deal could be made.

    6. I want Trump to be forbidden from ever making a public statement again. No Twitter, no TV, nothing.

    7. He agrees to be deported and stripped of his US citizenship...

    ...and leaves all electronic devices behind.

    Russia agrees to take him, and promptly puts him up in a one-bedroom at a Khrushchyovka in Norilsk, where he lives out the rest of his life frozen and forgotten.

    Ideally I want him prosecuted, but if there's one outcome where he avoids prosecution, that would be it.

    10. I think this is in the making

    I suggested it earlier today. I don't know that Pelosi being president is in our or her own best interests. Let Pence be president. I don't even care if he pardons Trump. And let Pence try to get the nomination. He won't get it.

    The only other stipulation I would ask for would be no judicial nominees until 2021.

    14. You or I will be POTUS before R's negatiate ANY of that
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Our plan is solid. All we need is to find a crime...

    Good God, these people are lunatics.

    Once again the DUmbasses prove just who the authoritarian fascist Brownshirts are in America.

    And to think Trump and conservatives are the fascists.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Ok now here’s our side of the deal, DUmmies. We will accept that IF every single liberal, progressive, socialist, Democrat, DU poster will agree to move the hell out of the country and give up their citizenship, never to return.

    What's Pence going to pardon Trump for? Beating Hillary and pissing off the left?

    How about this:

    Proposed "Take it or leave it" deal to the Dems, once you are exposed for the crooked, lying dirty bastards you are you prosecute adam shiftless and nancy pelousy and that other POS nadler for treason.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.
