(ReliableNews.org) – Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi once again resorts to impeachment threats as panic sweeps through Democratic leadership in the wake of the recent death of Justice Ginsburg, the continued threat of COVID-19 and other recent events. While Republicans vow decisive action aimed at solutions, Democrats like Pelosi prefer to lob substance-free threats at the president.
New York Times podcaster Kara Swisher pressed Pelosi about her power to push back against President Trump and the conservative agenda during an interview aired on September 21. Pelosi responded Democrats could “impeach [Trump] every day of the week.”
When asked “Why not”? by Swisher, Pelosi quickly walked the statement back saying “people are dying,” and the American people want action impacting their lives directly. Ordinarily, one might chalk up her threat as an empty one — and it may very well be.
However, it’s not the first time the threat has been made by her. On September 20, during an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, she said she wouldn’t rule out impeachment as a means to stop Republicans from filling Ginsburg’s vacancy.
It’s high time Democrats went to work solving America’s problems instead of wasting everyone’s time making idle threats.
