Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) addressed on Sunday the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump as part of a ploy to stop him from filling a recently vacated Supreme Court seat, saying that Democrats “have arrows in our quiver.”

ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, a Democrat, asked Pelosi about the possibility that Democrats could impeach Trump to stop him from filling the seat.

“Some have mentioned the possibility, if they try to push through a nominee in a lame duck session, that you and the House could 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.

Pelosi responded, “Well, we have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.”

Stephanopoulos pressed Pelosi on the issue, asking, “But to clear, you’re not taking any arrows out of your quiver, you’re not ruling anything out?”

Pelosi then gave a puzzling answer, responding: “Good morning. Sunday morning. The, uh, we have a responsibility, 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, uh, that, uh, is, uh, when the we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”

The later portion of Pelosi’s remarks can be found in the video below from ABC News’s “This Week” starting at the 1:55 mark.

The segment came after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died at 87-years-old on Friday after losing her fifth battle with cancer.

House Democrats, who hold a majority in the lower chamber, voted to impeach Trump last December. However, the effort, widely seen as driven by partisan politics, ultimately failed once it reached the Senate.

The Senate officially acquitted Trump in February.

Aware that Trump has the possibility to nominate his third Supreme Court justice, altering the ideological composition of the Supreme Court for a generation, Democrats are furiously fighting back against a nomination prior to Election Day.

However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already said the Senate will vote on Trump’s nominee prior to the election, and the president has said that Republicans will act “without delay” to fulfill their constitutional duty by filling the vacancy.

In response, Democrats are threatening to expand the Supreme Court — and the federal judiciary — and pack the courts with liberal justices.

“If he holds a vote in 2020, we pack the court in 2021. It’s that simple,” Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) said Saturday.

    Pelosi, you idiot, you should consider the consequences of overloading your mouth with hot and cold verbal diahrrea.

  • Smokey says:

    Impeachment for exercising his Constitutional Duty, only a Democrat could actually say this would be presented. WHEN they say “he is not allowed to nominate anyone” and the Constitution is brought out, expect them to scream “THAT IS AN OUTDATED DOCUMENT, IT IS NOT OUR LAW, YOU WILL BOW TO US OR BE KILLED” or some variation on that.
