In an interview with Kara Swisher of the New York Times, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi falsely claimed the House can impeach President Trump “every day of the week for anything he does.”
Breitbart released a transcript of the exchange on Monday:
Swisher: All right, but I’m going to press you one more time. What is your power to do this? I get the election, but you can get up more. You can speak out more. You can do more impeachments, things like that. Do you have enough power?
Pelosi: Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does. In fact, for —
Swisher: Why not?
Nancy Pelosi: — 200,000 people dying. Well, because look, the American people want to know what we’re doing that affects them directly.
As Breitbart correctly observed, the Constitution does not give the House unlimited impeachment powers:
The Constitution does not say a president can be impeached for “anything.” Rather, it says: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
Here’s audio as released by the Republicans:
She also attacked Attorney General Bill Barr in what Breitbart said was the inaugural edition of of Swisher’s new podcast, Sway.
Bill Barr is a complete henchman. He’s a disgrace to the office he holds. He shouldn’t even be a lawyer. He should be disbarred. We’ve held him in contempt of Congress. But he is an employee, and the villain here is Donald Trump. And that is what we have to do is to make sure that he is not reelected.
No doubt, by any means necessary, including violence.
