As the official impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump wraps up with the House Intelligence Committee and moves forward to the House Judiciary Committee it’s becoming more and more clear that Donald Trump was far from alone in the scandal that is now serving as the beginning of the end of his presidency.
After wrapping up their portion of the inquiry, Intelligence Committee officials put together an official impeachment hearing report on Donald Trump based upon their findings throughout their investigation and it’s serving to be just as damning for Donald’s right-hand man as it is the president himself.
We were already well aware that Mike Pence was far deeper in this scandal than he was willing to let on. However, Yahoo! News reporter Mike Isikoff was quick to point out, on the heels of the report’s release, that the Vice President was blatantly implicated as “either knowledgeable of or active participant” in Trump’s impeachable offenses.
“First big takeaway from House intel report: It concludes that VP Pence– who would become POTUS if Trump is removed– was “either knowledgeable of or active participant” in conduct that is basis for impeachment,” Isikoff’s breaking tweet read, captioning a photograph of the impeachment report.

In the photograph, the Pence-incriminating section has been circled with additional sentences and portions underlined as well.
“Our investigation determined that this telephone call was neither the start nor the end of President Trump’s efforts to bend U.S. foreign policy for his personal gain,” the circled portion of the report read. “Rather, it was a dramatic crescendo within a months-long campaign driving by President Trump in which senior U.S. officials, including the Vice President, the Secretary of State, the Acting Chief of Staff, the Secretary of Energy, and others were either knowledgable of or active participants in an effort to extract from a foreign nation the personal political benefits sought by the President.”
As you can see, Pence is just one of many that are about to go down in the quickly-sinking ship of Donald Trump. It almost seems as though Trump made certain that if he went down, everyone else would go down with him.
