A Democrat who leads the House is still open to the idea of spending more taxpayer money on trying to remove the president from office again.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) refused to rule out using another impeachment inquiry to block the Oval Office from choosing a replacement for the late U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“We have a responsibility,” she told ABC’s “This Week.” “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–that is, when we weigh the equities of protecting our democracy, it requires us to use every arrow in our quiver.”
Pelosi revealed she would mobilize the entire Democratic Party to postpone appointing the new justice until at least the upcoming election on Nov. 3. She then described members of the Trump administration as criminal accomplices.
“We have our options, we have arrows in our quiver that I am not about to discuss right now,” she said. “The fact is we have a big challenge in our country, this president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements he and his henchmen have made.”
After realizing she had overreacted, she tried to appeal to viewers who were still mourning the death of Ginsburg and struggling to make ends meet due to government lockdowns to help contain the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
“Right now our main goal, and I think Ruth Bader Ginsburg would want that to be, to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the American people from the coronavirus [CCP Virus,]” she said. “I have faith in the American people on this Sunday morning. I hope and pray that we have a vaccine and it will be soon but it must be safe and efficacious when we do–not one day sooner, not one day later.”
She then criticized the Trump administration for quickly responding to the pandemic.
“The fact is this administration has been a total failure at protecting the health and wellbeing of the American people and it has had an impact on our economy,” she said. “The lives, livelihood, and life of our democracy are threatened by this administration.”
The White House completely rejected Pelosi’s threat as a “bizarre and dangerous” political stunt.
“Numerous Democrats are threatening to pack the court and say things like ‘nothing is off the table,’” White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern told Fox News. “These are bizarre and dangerous power grabs by Democrats who will stop at nothing to erode the Constitution to enact their radical agenda. President Trump will fulfill his constitutional duty to protect our God given rights and do his part to fill the seat.”
