You read that headline correctly.
Hillary Clinton could still become president if evidence is found that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russians.
Here’s the scoop…
Nearly a year after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, a Harvard University professor says 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton could still become commander in chief.
Lawrence Lessig, the Roy L. Furman professor of law and leadership at Harvard Law School, penned an essay for Medium in October outlining a series of hypothetical scenarios that could take place should the ongoing probe find that the Trump campaign actually conspired with Russia to influence the results of the election.
If Trump did conspire with Russia, the president “should resign, or, if he doesn’t, he should be impeached,” Lessig wrote in his essay. Vice President Mike Pence would also have to either resign or get impeached, which would make House Speaker Paul Ryan the president of the United States, Lessig wrote at the time.
Given that there is “no mechanism in American law for a new election,” nor “a mechanism for correcting the criminal results of the previous election,” Ryan ought to nominate “the person defeated by the treason of his own party, and then step aside, and let her become President,” Lessig went on to say.
More on Hillary, per Daily Caller:
Hillary Clinton slammed President Trump on Friday after he reportedly called Haiti a “shithole” during a meeting with lawmakers and expressed his desire for more immigrants from countries like Norway and fewer immigrants from countries like Haiti.
The anniversary of the devastating earthquake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America’s commitment to helping our neighbors. Instead, we‘re subjected to Trump’s ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn’t look like him.

The thing is, Hillary and Haiti have a history – and it’s not a good one.
From Weekly Standard:
Protesters gathered outside the Clinton Foundation in New York City to complain about “missing money” from the Haiti recovery effort from the 2010 earthquake:
The protesters claimed that the $10 billion meant to help rebuild Haiti did little to help the country after the devastating quake. And that much of the money went to non-Haitian companies.
To this day no evidence of Trump/Russia collusion has been found.
There was no collusion!
