President Donald Trump said on Monday that if the Democrats use an impeachment attempt to block his Supreme Court nomination, he will win the election.
Pelosi: “We Have Arrows In Our Quiver”
In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was challenged as to whether the Democrats would use impeachment as a method to stop the President from nominating somebody to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.
“We have our options. 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,” Pelosi told Stephanopoulos. “This president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election.”
“Our main goal would be to protect the integrity of the election as we protect the people from the coronavirus,” she added. Pelosi was questioned again as to whether she would use impeachment tactics. She replied that the Constitution requires that Congress “use every arrow in our quiver.”
“We have a responsibility,” she continued. “We take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a responsibility to meet the needs of the American people.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday left open the possibility of using the impeachment process to prevent the Senate from confirming a new Supreme Court justice in the next few months. https://t.co/XOIHXa2Lz7

Trump: “If They Do That, We Win All Elections”
This did not impress President Trump, who shot back during an interview with Fox and Friends on Monday. “I heard if I [nominate someone for the Supreme Court], they’re going to impeach me,” President Trump said.

“So they’re impeaching me for doing what constitutionally I have to do,” he added. “If they do that, we win all elections.”
If they go ahead with impeachment in retaliation for the Supreme Court, President Trump thinks that his “numbers will go up.”
“I think we’ll win the entire election,” he concluded. “I think we’re going to win back the House, I think we’re going to win the House anyway.”
Impeachment is nothing more than a political weapon for Dems. Here is Schumer & AOC threatening to impeach @realDonaldTrump for literally following the law/Constitution.
These Dem radicals want to impeach, take power & then pack the courts to cement their power for generations. https://t.co/Ryw9OiBrkP

He’s On The Up Already – Impeachment Will Only Assist His Numbers!
I have to agree with the President’s analysis. Why? His numbers are already on the up, all across the board. He’s closing the gap on the overall polling average between him and Joe Biden to 6 points overall, down from 9 in August.
He’s 8 points more trusted on the economy than Biden, which is one of the most important issues in this election, especially during these uncertain times. Both Hispanic and black voters are turning on Biden, with the President seeing a rise in support in both of those demographics.
A second impeachment attempt would only gain him more support. The American people are tired of Democrat politicians wasting time on meaningless politicing, ESPECIALLY now that this country is going through the coronavirus pandemic.
They’d be fools to go through impeachment again.
