While speaking during an interview with The New York Times journalist Kara Swisher, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that the House of Representatives could impeach President Donald Trump “every day of the week for anything he does.”
Read the conversation below:
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.
Pelosi’s claim is completely false considering the Constitution states: “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.”
During the same interview, Pelosi also attacked Attorney General Bill Barr, saying, “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.”
The Democrats have made it clear that they will do anything and everything if Republicans select a new Supreme Court Justice before the election.
On Saturday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened to take action against GOP Senators if they fill the empty Supreme Court Justice pick before the November election saying that “nothing is off the table.”
The comments allegedly came during call where Schumer said, “Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, then nothing is off the table for next year. Nothing is off the table.”
The comments were parroted by radical left Senator Richard Blumenthal in a tweet 20 minutes later, saying, “If Republicans recklessly & reprehensibly force a SCOTUS vote before the election—nothing is off the table.”
