Democrats are so desperate to stop a conservative Supreme Court that they're willing to impeache President Trump… AGAIN!
This is according to House Majority leader Nancy Pelosi.
She appeared on ABC to warn that the Democrats are preparing to impeach President Trump or even Attorney General Bill Barr to stop a SCOTUS pick.
Do Democrats not remember that it is the President's Constitutional duty to make a nomination?
If he makes a nomination, then he hasn't done anything wrong!
In fact, he is simply fulfilling his oath of office!
Yet… Pelosi declared that Democrats have "arrows in our quiver" to stop President Trump.
See her own words below:
An election is less than two months away.
If Pelosi and the Democrats are willing to impeach Trump, then that must mean that they know something that we don't...
Why wouldn't they just wait for Trump to lose, if they believe that's what's going to happen?
CNBC confirms that a second impeachment is possible:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday did not rule out impeaching President Donald Trump or Attorney General William Barr if the Senate tries to push through a Supreme Court nomination during a lame-duck session if Joe Biden wins the November election.
“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,” Pelosi said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
“So, right now, our main goal and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be, would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the American people from the coronavirus, and that’s — I have faith in the American people on this Sunday morning,” she said.
Only a day after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, Trump vowed on Saturday he would pick his nominee in the upcoming week, likely a woman, and said that his administration wants to move ahead with the nomination before the election.
There are several leading contenders on Trump’s short list. Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago has emerged as a front-runner, sources tell NBC News.
As Republicans move ahead in efforts to push a nominee through the Senate Judiciary Committee and to a Senate vote before the year’s end, Democrats have pledged to fight the nomination by convincing four Republicans to defect. So far, two Senate Republicans — Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — have opposed a vote on the nominee before the election.
When pressed by Stephanopoulos that she’s “not ruling anything out” regarding an impeachment inquiry, Pelosi responded that the Constitution requires Congress “to 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.”
Pelosi also emphasized that Democrats would not shut down the government as leverage to slow the impending nomination.
“None of us has any interest in shutting down government, that has such a harmful and shameful impact on so many people in our country,” Pelosi said. “We’re not going to be shutting down government. I do hope, though, that the focus on health care and what it means in terms of the courts will have public opinion be of such magnitude that the Republicans will finally, finally address the coronavirus crisis.”
We must not only re-elect President Trump...
We must make sure to take back the House!
And maintain the Senate!
Trump has always been open about who he would nominate to SCOTUS.
He has published multiple lists of the people that he would consider.
Compare this to Joe Biden...
Who has indicated he will NOT preview his potential nominations.
CBS News confirms:
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden indicated Sunday he will not be releasing a list of possible Supreme Court nominees despite growing pressure to do so. The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday has left a vacancy on the high court and added another twist to the presidential race.
In remarks on the future of the Supreme Court from the National Constitution Center from Philadelphia, Biden singled out President Trump as the only presidential candidate to release a slate of possible nominees to the high court and suggested his doing so both in 2016 and 2020 set a dangerous precedent.
"First, putting a judge's name on a list like that could influence that person's decision making as a judge, and that would be wrong, or at least create the perception that it would have influence," Biden said in explaining why he is not in favor of releasing a list of contenders. "Second, anyone put on a list like that under these circumstances would be subject to unrelenting political attacks, because any nominee I would select would not get a hearing until 2021 at the earliest. She would endure those attacks for months on end without being able to defend herself."
Biden said his final reason for why he will not be releasing a list of Supreme Court nominees stems from the practice of past presidents to seek bipartisan consultation from the Senate.
"If I win, I'll make my choice for the Supreme Court not based on a partisan election campaign, but on what prior presidents have done, Republican and Democrats, and I've served with many of them: Only after consulting Democrats and Republicans in the United States Senate and seeking their advice and asking for their consent," he said.
Biden said it was not a surprise that the Trump campaign is now following Ginbsurg's death urging him to put forth his slate of candidates, as the future of the Supreme Court is a "game" and a "play to gin up emotions and anger."
Trump has been and will continue to be one of the most transparent presidents ever.
Joe Biden, on the other hand, appears to be filled with secrecy and seclusion.
In other words, Biden is politics as usual.
But Trump will continue to make America great again!
