“said they’re preparing something in Congress that they have not done in many, many years”
Chad Pergram of FOX News recently revealed that he received an email from a trustworthy source advising him to learn about the process of confirming a new vice president.
This is fueling speculation that either the Biden administration is going to replace Kamala Harris, or that a new VP will have to be chosen if Biden steps down and Kamala takes his place.
This topic was discussed on ‘The Five’ yesterday. Charles Creitz reports at FOX News:
Crumbling Biden-Harris detente could signal search for new VP: ‘The Five’
The panel on “The Five” on Tuesday discussed the possibility that the relationship between Joe Biden and Kamala Harris could get to the point that the vice president could be replaced, either in the middle of the president’s term or on his presumptive reelection ticket in 2024.
Host Dana Perino noted there is indeed a process for confirming a new vice president in the middle of a term, and it is not entirely unprecedented, though highly unusual and rare.
Nearly a dozen presidents have gone all or some of their tenure without a vice president or have gotten a new vice president mid-term…
Later, Perino pointed to reporting from Fox News chief congressional correspondent Chad Pergram, who appeared on “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier’s “All-Star Panel Podcast” on Fox News Radio.
“Chad Pergram said they’re preparing something in Congress that they have not done in many, many years – It’s about the process by which you go about confirming a new vice president,” she said…
On the podcast, Pergram said he received an email from a source who wrote that the reporter should “start to familiarize yourself with the confirmation process not just in the Senate, but in the House, for a vice president.”

Pergram repeated this claim during a follow-up report with Jesse Watters:

This all comes after a CNN report about strife at the White House among Harris’ staff which was followed by a strange tweet from Jen Psaki:
For anyone who needs to hear it. @VP is not only a vital partner to @POTUS but a bold leader who has taken on key, important challenges facing the country—from voting rights to addressing root causes of migration to expanding broadband.

Would the Biden administration actually replace Harris? Would it be any crazier than anything else they’ve done?DONATE
