Pelosi Tells America She Is Not Above Dirty Pool
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died and Dems are now panicking. Trump is about to pick another Supreme Court Justice and Dems are planning to do everything in their power to prevent him. Trump has already said that he plans to pick a female candidate to replace RBG but that is not enough for Dems who are demanding Trump wait until after the presidential election to in hopes that Biden finds a way to win. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has already hinted that the Dems will even go as far as impeaching Trump again if need be.
During an interview on "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos Pelosi revealed just how far Dems will go to prevent Trump from picking a new Supreme Court Justice.
"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, Stephanopoulos said asking if that if the Dem's intention.
“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.”
“....Our main goal would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the people from the coronavirus.”
Stephanopoulos asked if she would be using every arrow in her quiver, namely impeachment, and she finally answered.
“When we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy, it requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”

"The White House slammed Pelosi's suggestion, as a "bizarre and dangerous" power grab.
“The Speaker threatened to impeach the President—again—for simply fulfilling his constitutional obligation," White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern told Fox News. "Numerous Democrats are threatening to pack the court and say things like ‘nothing is off the table.’ These are bizarre and dangerous power grabs by Democrats who will stop at nothing to erode the Constitution to enact their radical agenda."
He added: "President Trump will fulfill his constitutional duty to protect our God-given rights and do his part to fill the seat.”
It looks like we are in for a hectic fall season, with Trump up for another pointless impeachment, all so Dems can prevent Trump from doing his job and putting a new Justice in place.
