    Nancy Pelosi is bound by the US Constitution to make her selection according to the list as set forth in the constitution. You seem to be unreasonably concerned about Hillary Clinton being VP and that's never going to happen. Hillary Clinton does not hold any of those positions on the list, so it's a virtual impossibility of what you fear will happen.

    I don't think that is so.

    Which of those positions did Gerald Ford have ?


    If it is the case that the new President Nancy Pelosi must pick from that list of Trump appointees, then she fires one and replaces with Hilary.
    What am I missing ?

    It is so, it's right in the Constitution. Gerald Ford was the Vice President, remember?

    (does the Constitution say she has to quit her office as Congressman for Northern California?)

    R + 2: President Nancy Pelosi nominates Hilary as VP

    R + 3: Hilary takes the oath of office as VP

    R + 4: President Nancy Pelosi resigns as president of the USA and returns to the house as Speaker

    R + 5: Hilary is sworn in as the 47th president of the USA.



    Can this happen ?
    So Clinton can be known as the second woman president? She'll never go along with that.

    The biggest question: why would they confirm thst the impeach was indeed a plot to overturn a leigitimate election?

    That could start a civil war.

    Yes, but do you not remember that Ford wasn't elected as Vice President but appointed by Nixon ?

    Who, Nancy or Hilary ?


    Isn't every impeachment at attempt to overturn a legitimate presidential election ?


    Why would it spark a civil war ?
    If it does, the US army will ensure it's a damn short war.

    He wasn't "appointed" by Nixon. Gerald Ford became president according to the Constitutional line of succession when Richard Nixon resigned.

    Are you an American?

    I didn't think Southern Christians would elect a New York mafia dude. So I guess anything can happen.

    No, it isn't. That isn't what it's for. The Constitution says so.

    Yes he was. Ford was appointed as VP by Nixon to replace Spiro Agnew who resigned as VP:


    "...on October 10, 1973, Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned and then pleaded no contest to criminal charges of tax evasion and money laundering...according to The New York Times, Nixon "sought advice from senior Congressional leaders about a replacement." The advice was unanimous. "We gave Nixon no choice but Ford," House Speaker Carl Albert recalled later. Ford agreed to the nomination, telling his wife that the Vice Presidency would be "a nice conclusion" to his career...."

    Gerald Ford - Wikipedia


    Gerald Ford remains the only man to have served as Vice President and President of the USA without being elected to either office.


    ...are you an American?
    No I'm not, though it seems I know more about US history than you do.
