Re: Even if both Trump and Pence were impeached

During the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings it was theorized that Bill Clinton could step down, making Al Gore the new Pres. Gore could then appoint Bill Clinton VP. If approved and if done early enough in Bill's 2nd term, Bill could have run for re-election for a 3rd term.
