Trump Dares Pelosi to Try Impeachment Again
President Donald Trump responded Monday night to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to rule out impeachment to prevent him from nominating a judge to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the Supreme Court. “Go ahead. I want them to do that," Trump said to supporters during a rally in Ohio.
"I’m the only guy in the world that could get impeached for trying to fill a seat on the Supreme Court,” Trump said.
Pelosi told the New York Times that is was within her power to try to impeach Trump again.
“Well, we can impeach him every day of the week for anything he does,” Pelosi said.
ABC News' George Stephanopoulos asked Pelosi on Sunday during an interview if she would rule out impeachment to thwart Trump's SCOTUS pick.
“We have our options," Pelosi said. "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." Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made a similar comment alongside Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during a press conference on Sunday night.
“I believe that also we must consider, again all of the tools available in our disposal and that all of these options should be entertained and on the table,” AOC said. Schumer nodded, agreeing with the self-described socialist.
Trump told supporters that it was amazing he has had the opportunity to choose three Supreme Court justices in his first term - and that it was driving Democrats nuts. "Think of that. Three," Trump said. "A lot of presidents get none. We’ve had three."
"It’s blowing their minds," he added.
