Pelosi on Using Impeachment to Stop SCOTUS Nomination: ‘We Have Arrows in Our Quiver’

Article:

 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said on Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” that Democratic lawmakers have “arrows in our quiver,” when asked if impeachment was a possibility to stop a lame-duck Supreme Court nomination should President Donald Trump lose the White House in November and the vacancy following the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has not been filled.

Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Let me press you though on what happens. You want people to get out and vote. And even that’s no guarantee that the White House and Senate Republicans won’t try to push through a Supreme Court nomination in a lame-duck session even if Joe Biden wins on November 3rd, even if Democrats win, pick up seats in the House, and maybe even the Senate. So what can you do then? Some have mentioned the possibility if they try to push through a nominee in a lame-duck session that you and the House can move to impeach President Trump or Attorney General Barr as a way of stalling and preventing the Senate from acting on this nomination.”

Pelosi said, “Well, 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. This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made. So right now, our main goal and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be to protect the integrity of the election, that we protect the American people from the coronavirus.”

So she thinks that a house impeachment will stop a Senate hearing? Doubtful.

Here is everything the Constitution says about Presidents nominating Supreme Court Judges. Nothing about lame-duck sessions.

 

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

I take it Elizabeth Warren is working with her mighty ancestral bow as we speak?

Pelosi said, “Well, 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. This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made. So right now, our main goal and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be to protect the integrity of the election, that we protect the American people from the coronavirus.”

A few corrections to this statement, Ms. Felonosi:

#1 - The President has stated that he fears for the integrity of the election results because of the extreme and illegal lengths that YOU and YOUR HENCHMEN have been pulling.  There have been no threats made. YOUR side has made threats that there will be violence in the streets if the election doesn't go YOUR WAY.

#2 - If you and your henchmen have the goal of protecting the American people from the COVID, then stop putting the sick in convalescent hospitals to kill the elderly in droves and stop floating false information about infection numbers to continue to terrorize the zombies who vote for you.

And lastly, I think the only thing that RBG is wanting right now is a very large glass of ice water.

Libs were born to protest. Doesn't matter if it's an old piece of carboard with something written on it or if it's another impeachment.

Nancy and her same old meaningless crap.

Indeed. As a further curiosity, here's the definition of a "lame duck": https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/lame duck.

The example given is specifically: "The President was a lame duck during the end of his second term."

SECOND, Nancy. Second term, democrats. Because, unlikely as it seems to you, Trump might actually win a second term. Imagine that, Nancy?

This was a picture from when they rammed Obamacare on us.  This, when ALL of THEM have the best, free healthcare (NOT Obamacare) that WE pay for!  Someone should have shoved that gavel down her stupid throat!  Can you imagine celebrating something like this when so many opposed it, and shoving it in our faces?!

If PRESIDENT Donald J. Trump were to shoot Pelosi on Broadway, he would receive 435 votes in the electoral college  before lunch on November 3rd. Pennsylvania would receive 20 million mail-in ballots postmarked the stroke of midnight November 7th.

You have to "Impeach" first and then find out why!
