‘We Would Welcome President Pelosi’: Howard Dean Says Impeaching Trump and Pence ‘Actually Possible’

Howard Dean, former Vermont governor, ex-DNC Chair and failed Democratic Party presidential candidate, openly spoke online about the Democrats’ hope for a double impeachment that would remove President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence from office to be replaced by soon-to-be Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), saying, “We would welcome President Pelosi.”

Dean was commenting on Twitter about the brawl between Bernie-bros and Beto-bots over the looming Democratic Party battle for the 2020 presidential nomination. Someone mentioned the odds were better of Pelosi becoming president than Bernie and Beto slugging it out in a two candidate field.

Dean responded, “That is actually possible. Trump has to be removed, which is not far fetched. Then Pence has to go. Case has not been made. If that happens, however, we will welcome President Pelosi.”

Removing both Trump and Pence is far fetched as it would require two-thirds of a GOP-controlled Senate to convict and remove them from office in an unprecedented double impeachment trial that would negate the 2016 presidential election. But that doesn’t stop Democrats from considering it now that they will control the House, which has impeachment power, starting in January.
