ABC Proposes Impeachment to Block SCOTUS Motion, Court docket-Packing as ‘Retaliation’

Not lengthy after ABC’s Good Morning America promoted anti-Christian bigotry towards doable SCOTUS nominee Decide Any Coney Barrett as a result of she’s a “religious Catholic,” however Clinton lackey and chief anchor George Stephanopoulos used his interview with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on This Week pitch her insidious plots to dam the nomination course of, together with impeachment. And if Senate Republicans did verify a brand new justice, Stephanopoulos proposed packing the court docket in “retaliation.”

Earlier than pushing for an additional set of partisan impeachment hearings and trial, Stephanopoulos first recommended Pelosi use ongoing negotiations with the White Home over authorities funding to one way or the other cease a nomination.

“You’re in the course of negotiations over authorities funding. The federal government runs out of funding on the finish of September. Is there any means we will use leverage in these negotiations to sluggish this nomination down,” he begged.

Pelosi wasn’t curious about a authorities shutdown and easily inspired individuals to exit and vote as a result of the nation was at risk. That didn’t sit nicely with ABC’s chief anchor. He feared that even when his Democratic Party picked up seats within the Home, took again management of the Senate, and received the presidency, a lame-duck Republican Senate would do their Constitutional responsibility to fill the seat.

 

 

Stephanopoulos’s answer? Impeachment! Be aware how he by no means says who’s supposedly “talked about the likelihood”:

Let me press you although on what occurs. You stated need individuals to get on the market and vote, and even that is no assure that the White Home and Senate Republicans will not attempt to push by means of a Supreme Court docket nomination in a lame-duck session even when Joe Biden wins on November 3, even when Democrats win, choose up seats within the Home, and possibly even the Senate.

So, what are you able to do then? Some have talked about the likelihood in the event that they attempt to push by means of a nominee in a lame-duck session that you simply and the Home can transfer to question President Trump or Legal professional Common Barr as a means of stalling and stopping the Senate from appearing on this nomination.

Pelosi by no means stated she was against the thought of launching one other impeachment campaign, and he picked up on that. “However to be clear, you are not taking any arrows out of your quiver, you’re not ruling something out,” he pressed once more. She performed coy.

His final query handled the potential of Senate Republicans getting a nominee confirmed and the way the Democratic might precise retribution by means of packing the court docket with liberal-activist judges. “And eventually, if the Republicans, although, nonetheless are profitable, a lot of your colleagues have referred to as for, once more, if a majority is voted for Democrats in November, increasing the court docket in retaliation,” he boasted, searching for her response.

Between ABC actively lobbying liberal Republicans to dam any nomination, promoting anti-Christian bigotry, and now all this, there’s no argument towards the truth that the community was simply an activist arm of the Democratic Occasion.

These plots to dam and undo Constitutional actions by a Republican Senate have been made doable due to profitable sponsorships from Verizon, Fidelity, and Febreze. Their contact info is linked so you may inform them concerning the biased information they’re funding.
