"Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe explained last week how "President Nancy Pelosi" could become a reality at 12:01 p.m. on Jan. 20, 2021.

Last week, President Donald Trump triggered an alarm when he suggested delaying the presidential election."

What did Tribe say?

"Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid on Friday, Tribe explained that, if the election is not settled on time, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi could temporarily become president via a constitutional "fail-safe.""

Our country's founders never expected that the Speaker of the House would be the greatest threat to the liberty of our nation!

I wouldn't doubt that if Pelosi was to be president, her term would be short!

Because the 1797 Succession act had the Senate President Pro Tempore Ahead of the Speaker in Line, Which would be a Member of the President`s Part and Chuck Grassley.

like always a Democrat Changed that Law in 1947.

Pelosi would have to be able to navigate the Contingent Election laws that have been Established and actually have Precedent.

the Election of 1800 was a Tie.

The House Votes on President.

the Senate on Vice President.

in 1824 John Quincy Adams won the Presidency even though he didn't win the Popular or Electoral Votes.

 

but Like 2000 Volumes of Legal Challenges would stop that.

the Supreme Court would step in and Decide well before the Inauguration.

and if not then whomever the Next President was, it would Legally NOT be the Speaker as the Laws are clear they only Assume the White House Upon the Deaths of the next two in line.

it would however throw this country into turmoil and we would never trust an Election again and allow the Democrats to Force Legislation to sidestep the Electoral College and Establish the Popular Vote.

or Worse and actual Shooting Revolution.

i doubt all of these will be an option, i Think the next Election is going to be Won by an Unquestionable Margin by President Trump.

My Democratic friends have also had their fill of this total fiasco, and say they will vote for Trump.  He's appearing to be the lesser of the evils to them.
