Well....this is oddly specific, but if the president were killed, the vice president would be given power. If he were killed, the Pro Temp would get it. And if HE were killed, it would fall to the Secretary of State

As for the blanks, since all the other officials were named, I would assume the first blanc is for Orrin Hatch's name, and the second is for SoS

Or it would be Mike Pompeos name, as he is the Sos and they introduce him. I would assume it's the latter.

It would look like this: `If North Korea launched a nuclear missile and took out Air Force one with President Trump and Vice President Pence as well as the Speaker and President Po Temp, Mike Pompeo, the Secretary of State would become president.`

Though it could be either response. Pick your poison, as they say.

Mike Pompeo

jasonmitchell:

exactly so tell why the second option explain to me

JustSaiyan:

Because if you look at the placement of the comma, if we were to use Mike Pompeo instead, it would look like we were calling Pompeo the Po Temp. You can tell because if it were saying that, it would have a comma after the second blank, but it does not. Therefore it is a separate statement.

JustSaiyan:

No, that would be the second one.

I'm not 100% certain I can answer these exactly correct, but I can get relatively close. 1. standing committee views the bill 2. Committee sends bill back to the floor 3. Bill is judged by entire chamber 4. second chamber sends to the President 5. President approves new law
