Things are getting rather heated in the nation’s capital this week.
Actually, that’s a bit of an understatement. In all reality, the vitriol and political bitterness has gone nuclear after the passing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and under the shadow of the looming 2020 election.
The Democrats are furious at the idea that Donald Trump could attempt to fill RBG’s seat so close to an election, and it appears as though they’ll stop at nothing to stymy the President.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday would not rule out impeachment as an option to stop President Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court pick from being confirmed to the bench, saying Democrats will “use every arrow in our quiver” to block the eventual nominee.
During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi, D-Calif., was asked whether she and House Democrats would move to impeach the president, or Attorney General Bill Barr in an effort to prevent the Senate from acting.
“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.”
She added: “Our main goal would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the people from the coronavirus.”
Pelosi was pressed again on whether she would employ impeachment tactics, to which she said the Constitution requires that Congress “use every arrow in our quiver.”
It seems as though there is little room left for decorum in the American political system.
