House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) didn’t wait long to threaten impeachment if Donald Trump tries to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s now-empty Supreme Court seat.
Pelosi was just put on notice by Donald Trump, however, who said on Monday that if Pelosi forces another impeachment, “we’ll win the entire election.”
“I heard if I [nominate], they’re going to impeach me,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” on Monday. “So they’re impeaching me for doing what constitutionally I have to do. If they do that, we win all elections.”
Trump remarked that if Democrats make a second impeachment attempt in a single calendar year, his “numbers will go up,” likely alluding to the fact that his approval ratings hit an all-time high during the last impeachment attempt concluded in February.
Democrats have been quietly working behind the scenes to secure the Senate majority and retain the House majority, but a second unpopular impeachment could undo those plans.
If an impeachment push is launched, “I think we’ll win the entire election,” Trump explained. “I think we’re going to win back the House, I think we’re going to win the House anyway.”
As appeals for the GOP to respect Ginsburg’s alleged “dying wish” that her seat not be filled before the election appear to be falling on deaf ears, Democrat leaders have hastily moved on to the next option — impeachment.
Pelosi told ABC host George Stephanopolous on Sunday that impeachment is not off the table, and said that Congress will use “every arrow in our quiver” to block a SCOTUS confirmation.
