But it would be impossible to impeach anyways, because you’d probably have to prove that Biden ordered it done, he can always claim he didn’t know anything about it.

Well that's why it's left to the consideration of the senators...

Just to be another example, I remember someone saying that if they find out later that Obama was really born in Kenya, then any law he ever passed should be null and void because he wasn’t eligible to be president.
 But according to what your saying now, once someone is sworn in, you can only be removed with impeachment.

I did not say that. My guess is it would be up to SCOTUS to decide if the constitution renders it impossible for somebody foreign born to be president, or just illegal to appoint him.

Biden will never be removed from office just like Trump. The other side prefers them to their ideologue VPs.

Yeah because the election results don't directly impact the nomination - they are only a tool for the state to decide how to nominate their election. To my knowledge there is no blanket rule that once sworn in it becomes irrevocable - different faults in the process may have different outcomes.

Good point, although in his scenario if the election was rigged they will remove both of them.
Funny that until now the right was saying the left was going to remove Biden...

Unless they simultaneously impeach Biden and Harris, and then the speaker of the house takes over, which, by then, will presumably be a R, because otherwise the impeachment will never happen in the first place.

You think the left prefers Trump over Pence?

No. If Pence was elected in 2016 he’d likely (IMHO) win re-election in 2020, despite COVID and all.
