Just hours after it was announced that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked whether she and House Democrats would move to impeach the president, or Attorney General Bill Barr in an effort to prevent the Senate from acting.
“We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country,” Pelosi said. “This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election.”
She added: “Our main goal would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the people from the coronavirus.”
Pelosi was pressed again on whether she would employ impeachment tactics, to which she said the Constitution requires that Congress “use every arrow in our quiver.”
“We have a responsibility,” Pelosi said. “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people.”
She added: “When we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy, it requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”
This woman!! CAN YOU EVEN? I have some ideas on what she can do with the arrows in her quiver.
I suppose threatening to impeach the president is better than the threats of violence and riots that others on the left have already made.
Pelosi’s method of governance is to not speak to President Trump and always look for ways to impeach him. That’s really effective. She has not spoken to the president in nearly a whole year according to reporting from The Hill.
Doesn’t Pelosi realize a president has the Constitutional duty to appoint judges to the Supreme Court? She needs to read Article II, Section 2. Furthermore, it is the job of the Senate to confirm or deny those nominees. It seems to me like Trump and McConnell are following the proper process.
Just when we thought 2020 could not get more crazy, it has. Buckle up!
It is clear that the Dem/Socialists have declared war on our nation. This cannot & will not stand without a response. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she would not rule out impeachment as an option to stop @realDonaldTrump U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed. Stay tuned!
