Some of the most outspoken House Democrats who pushed to impeach President Trump early in his first term say doing so again over filling Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat before the election may not be the right strategy.
During an interview on ABC News’s This Week on Sunday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked if she and House Democrats would attempt to impeach Trump or Attorney General William Barr as a way to prevent the Senate from confirming a Trump appointed Supreme Court nominee.
“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.”
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy responded by saying about his fellow Californian, “I will make you this one promise, listening to the speaker on television this weekend. If she tries to move for an impeachment based upon the president following the Constitution, I think there will be a move on the floor to no longer have the question of her being speaker. She may think she has a quiver — we do too.”
