While appearing on Sunday’s edition of ABC News’ “This Week,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seemed to hint that Democrats might attempt to impeach President Trump if he follows the Constitution and names a replacement for deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
“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,” anchor George Stephanopoulos 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,” she said.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
“To be clear, you’re not taking any arrows out of your quiver and not ruling anything out,” Stephanopoulos said.
“Yeah, we have a responsibility. We’ve taken an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people. That is when we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in our quiver,” she said.
In a slightly bizarre exchange, Stephanopoulos asks if the House would impeach Trump or Barr if Senate GOP tries to vote on a SCOTUS nom during lame duck session (to stall the confirmation), and Pelosi refuses to rule it out: "We have our options. We have arrows in our quiver." pic.twitter.com/aoXPh6cFlt

One person correctly wondered:
So, the grounds for impeachment would be what?
Trump did something that he has the absolute Constitutional authority to do?
Are they threatening to impeach the AG for something he has nothing to do with?
If this is not enough to piss of the Senate GOP, nothing is

Yeah, that’s about it.
This is unhinged. Last night @EricHolder proposed “packing” #SCOTUS which would also require breaking Senate’s rule of 60 for legislative votes. Off the rails stuff. If Ds try the impeachment gambit, @senatemajldr should move the nominee to floor w/o hearings and just vote.

As Twitchy noted: “Because impeaching Trump over nothing worked out so well the last time they tried it.”
This is beyond unhinged, but it’s what we’ve come to expect from the Democrats. At this point, it appears they, along with their allies in the media and big tech, have become an existential threat to the United States itself, and must be removed from office.
