Pence planning inauguration after Trump’s impeachment: Waters
US Vice President Mike Pence is already planning his inauguration in anticipation of President Donald Trump’s removal from office in an impeachment, Congresswoman Maxine Waters has said.
“Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition,” Democratic Representative Waters tweeted on Sunday, referring to former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and former White House spokesman Sean Spicer, who resigned from their positions in recent days
Priebus was reportedly pushed out this Friday after a stormy six-month tenure. He has been in a public feud with Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s newly-appointed communications director.
Spicer stepped down on July 21 after Trump had named Scaramucci his new communications director, a decision he strongly disapproved of.
Impeachment proceedings against Trump are unlikely to advance in the near future as the US Constitution stipulates that a president can be impeached for committing “high crimes and misdemeanors.”
