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. Just hours after it was announced that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., vowed that a Trump nominee to the Supreme Court to fill her vacancy “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.” During an interview on ABC News’ “This Week,” Pelosi

Comments:

Dems recycle the impeachment canard. In reality the House has no role in appointing justices.

It'd be kind of funny if by the end of his second term, President Trump was impeached 20 times. It'd show that the democrats are fools and that impeachment doesn't really mean anything.
