Impeachment of President Bryan to Commence President Bryan speaking After a lengthy battle within the Congress, the vote for an impeachment had been passed by the vote of the vice president. It is a curious thing to have been passed, but it is said that President Bryan was pulling the strings of the VP like he would the strings of a marionette behind the scenes. Rumor started to cross the nation that President Bryan might not have even wanted to become president in the first place. The impeachment will thus start an investigation into President Bryan's pardoning of former ARU leader Eugene V. Debs, now a Congressman from Indiana after winning election, after he called for a strike of workers under the Pullman Company. The strike led to a mass obstruction of mail cars and led to violence all across the nation. Debs was arrested by the U.S. Army. Earlier this month President Bryan said that he would resign if an independent investigation yielded any unlawful action, regardless if the Senate voted to convict him or not. This led to mass confusion within the Congress and the public; why would anyone step down if they don't know if they can continue being President? No one truly knew what President Bryan was doing, but recent reports say that President Bryan has had multiple arguments with his staff and speechwriters. The investigation is expected to be a year-long investigation. Should Bryan step down, his VP, Arthur Sewall will finish the remainder of his term.
