Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is claiming that last week’s attack on the Capitol was a result of “white-supremacist grievances fueled by President Trump” and is calling for him to be removed from office.

In a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, Clinton wrote, “Trump ran for president on a vision of America where whiteness is valued at the expense of everything else.”

Clinton continued, saying Trump gave “white supremacists, members of the extreme right and conspiracy theorists their most powerful platforms yet,” while he was in office.

She said it was “essential” that Trump is removed from office and is impeached.

“Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately. But that alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America.”

Moreover, the called for new and tougher state and federal laws that target extremists while praising Twitter and other companies for removing Trump for their platforms.

“Twitter and other companies made the right decision to stop Trump from using their platforms, but they will have to do more to stop the spread of violent speech and conspiracy theories,” Clinton said, adding that the Biden administration will hold technology platforms accountable.

Clinton concluded her article with this message: “The imagination to confront what happened and ensure that nothing like it ever happens again. That’s what real patriotism looks like.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
