Prepare to get Machiavellian. Here is the ultimate foolproof impeachment defense to the Mueller witch-hunt:
1) Fire Mueller, Rosenstein, and Sessions
2) Announce that any impeachment proceedings would be met by temporarily resigning for Pence pardon (blanket alleviation of any criminal liability from witch hunt).
3) Announce that Trump’s first term will not count as a complete term, therefor Trump will run again and win, in both 2020 and 2024.
In short , due to the shenanigans of the left, Trump will basically be in office for three terms , more or less, instead of two.
Meanwhile, Pence will be the left’s worst nightmare for the next two and a half years, especially on social issues such as abortion. Trump can be brought back on as advisor to Pence immediately meanwhile, and be running the country , but without the official title or legal liability.
