‘I want them to do it’: Donald Trump says he welcomes second impeachment over Supreme Court seat – By Courtney Subramanian (USA Today) / Sept 22 2020
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump insisted Monday that he welcomes the threat of a second impeachment by Democrats if he is successful in his push to fill the Supreme Court seat vacated by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“Go ahead … I want them to do it,” Trump told a crowd that broke into chants of “fill that seat!” at a campaign rally at the Toledo Express Airport in Swanton, Ohio. “I’m the only guy in the world that could get impeached for trying to fill a seat.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not rule out the possibility of impeachment Sunday after ABC News “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos pointed to calls for moving to impeach Trump or Attorney General William Barr as a means of delaying a Senate confirmation vote.
“Well, we have our options. We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now,” Pelosi said.
