McEnany ‘Blatant disregard for the U.S. Constitution’ Impeachment Talks From The Left, Again

U.S. NEWS – Republican Senator from Utah, Mitt Romney, said he is on board for a Supreme Court nominee is one is presented, “If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications.”

This decision paves the way for a nominee to be confirmed.

During the White House press briefing today, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, “Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have officially shown their blatant disregard for the United States Constitution. Apparently, it is now a high crime and misdemeanor worthy of impeachment for a lawfully elected President of the United States to exercise his constitutional duty.”

“Article Two, Section Two of the Constitution clearly states that the President, quote, “shall nominate,” end quote, justices of the Supreme Court when a vacancy occurs.  No matter the time, no matter the politics of the day, the President is the President.  There is nothing in the Constitution that says the President stops being the President in an election year,” said McEnany.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell presented a defense of his decision to move forward swiftly with a Supreme Court confirmation process this close to the November election.”Moving ahead with a vote on the forthcoming Supreme Court nomination will be consistent with both history and precedent,” McConnell said on the floor Tuesday.

“Nancy Pelosi has vowed to attack the President with, quote, “arrows.”  Speaker Pelosi will not rule out impeaching this President for doing his job for fulfilling his constitutional obligation. AOC said that impeachment is an option, quote, “on the table,” while Chuck Schumer stood by, nodding approvingly,” said McEnany.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), who is facing a reelection bid, said on Tuesday that she will vote against a Supreme Court nominee if one is brought to the Senate floor before the November election.

“My statement was a model of clarity. I made it very clear, yes, that I did not think there should be a vote prior to the election,” Collins told reporters when asked if she would oppose a nominee before the election. 

President Trump is expected to announce the nominee on Saturday, to fill the empty seat of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
