Calls to impeach President Trump have resounded across Capitol Hill numerous times. Typically, Democrat leaders like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lead the charge.
And now, as Trump prepares to nominate a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the impeachment talks have ramped up yet again.
But House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) won’t stand for it this time.
McCarthy has made a promise to the country — and issued a stern warning to Speaker Pelosi.
She tried to impeach the President before and if she tries it again, McCarthy won’t let it slide. This time, there will be repercussions for Pelosi’s actions.
McCarthy says if Pelosi launches a second impeachment inquiry against the President, he will introduce a motion to remove Nancy from her position.
As he told reporters (courtesy Breitbart):
I will make you this one promise … if she tries to move for an impeachment based upon the president following the Constitution, I think there will be a move on the floor to no longer have the question of her being Speaker.
She may think she has a quiver — we do too.
McCarthy is referencing a recent Pelosi quote, where she said Democrats will use “every arrow in their quiver” to do what is necessary regarding Trump and RBG’s replacement.
Apparently, this could mean another impeachment attempt, provided Pelosi can recruit other political leaders to support the motion.
Democrats have made it plain that they don’t want Trump to select a replacement for RBG. And if he insists on pushing one through, they will react.
However, McCarthy believes this is a constitutional issue:
The president is supposed to move forward and they will.
The Senate is supposed to take the action and they will — it’s their constitutional right and they are following through.
President Trump said earlier this week that he will probably announce his nominee on Saturday.
Currently, it’s rumored that the President is considering five women for the position, though it’s unlikely that Democrats will wholeheartedly approve of his pick.
The passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has added more complexity to the election situation. Should we see a replacement before November?
And will that nomination get confirmed in time? If so, what impact might that confirmation have on voting?
