  • Will Pence be Trump's Scapegoat?

    It wouldn't be surprising, now would it? For Trump, loyalty is a one-way street.

    If Vice President Mike Pence is known for anything, it is loyalty to the President and operating serenely in the shadows. Now it seems that loyal service to the errant Donald Trump is forcing him into the harsh light of the Congressional probe into the President's alleged attempt at political extortion of Ukraine.

    If Trump needs to find a scapegoat to take the heat off himself in the Ukraine scandal, Pence is the perfect target. And, adding fuel to the fire, an upcoming book, written by a senior White House official, claims that White House aides felt Pence was ready to back Trump's removal via the 25th Amendment, a source with knowledge of the book confirmed to CNN. This amendment allows for an incapacitated president to be pushed out of office.

    The book does not claim that Pence himself said he would support such a move. What's more, Pence has denied he would have considered invoking the amendment to remove Trump from the presidency, saying he "never heard any discussion" of the 25th Amendment during his time in the White House.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.
