Left-leaning magazine Newsweek found itself engaging in mind-melting liberal fantasies this week, bizarrely claiming that Hillary Clinton can still become President of the United States should Robert Mueller’s never-ending Russia probe find “evidence” of a conspiracy.
The magazine posted the fanciful article on Thursday, titled “Hillary Clinton Could Still Become President if Russia Probe Finds Conspiracy Evidence,” just one year after President Trump’s inauguration.
The author sites a recent report written by a Harvard Law School professor that details the scenarios that would have to take place for Hillary Clinton to miraculously take control of the White House, effectively nullifying the 2016 presidential election.
Essentially, the special counsel’s office would have to find proof of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Donald Trump would then quit or face impeachment, which would result in his removal from office. A short time later, Vice President Pence would also be removed because of his connections with Russia; making Speaker of the House Paul Ryan President of the United States.
According to the author, Paul Ryan would then –using some unknown mechanism- nominate “the person defeated by the treason of his own party, and then step aside, and let her become President.”
“This is one way it could happen,” said the author behind the study. “But that’s very different from saying I think it will happen, or should happen, or [that] the evidence is there for it to happen.”
