Pelosi refuses to rule out impeaching Bill Barr to stall SCOTUS confirmation

President Trump finally revealed his nominee to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s now-vacated Supreme Court seat, and Democrats are desperate to stop the confirmation process.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) floated the idea of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as a way to stall Amy Coney Barret’s confirmation, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just addressed the prospect in a Sunday interview.

When host of CNN’s “State of the Union” Jake Tapper asked Pelosi on Sunday morning whether she would consider impeaching Barr to stall Senate Republicans, Pelosi didn’t outright deny the possibility that Democrats would move in that direction.

Tapper introduced the idea by referencing Ocasio-Cortez’s earlier comments:

So, Speaker Pelosi, it sounds as though you’re almost resigned to the fact that Judge Barrett will become Justice Barrett. And you’re saying very clearly that your message to viewers right now is vote, vote, vote — vote November 3 or early voting or whatever. That would seem to suggest that you are not on the program when it comes to individuals like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who this week did not rule out this long-shot effort to try to stall the confirmation of Judge Barrett by impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr. Now, you haven’t ruled it out.

“Well, I’m not familiar with what suggestion of the distinguished congresswoman made,” Pelosi jabbed, before going on to say that Barrett’s nomination is about placing a justice “to overturn the Affordable Care Act.”

Tapper pressed Pelosi to take a position on impeaching Barr as a means of halting the confirmation, and she again deflected:

Well, what is the use of talking about that? What we’re talking about is the price the Republican senators will pay if they vote to overturn the pre-existing medical condition, which they’ve been out to get as well as the president had been out to overturn. Now I’m not into the process. I’m into the policy. But I do want to point out that they have totally misrepresented their position on this. In fact, you could say they are lying.

Just hours after Barrett’s nomination, Democrats appear to be struggling to come to a consensus about which way they will attack her, and Pelosi clearly doesn’t want to publically commit to anything right now.
