Let her. In fact, launching an impeachment will have nothing to do with the Senate at all so all it will do is expose her (again) for the lying hypocrite that she is.

It would also give the GOP huge amounts of ammunition to use in the election.

They can drag this out but not like this. But I say go for it.

What we had under Obama was the Republicans blocking him from getting a vote on a Supreme Court justice. Now the Dem's will attempt to do the same.

So we have had Pelosi running with impeachment to try and stop Trump from doing anything but what is going to happen is the Republicans will do the same thing when a (D) president wins.

Being that we are now run by extremely partisan imbeciles on both sides, gridlock will be a good thing.

Unfreaking believable. Pelosi is threatening Trump with impeachment for doing his constitutional duty.

Pelosi, appearing in an interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, would not rule out launching impeachment proceedings in order to block the Senate from confirming a nominee from President Donald Trump.

So, she won't rule it out. Big deal. Would giving free rein for any crime that comes up or might occur make you feel better if it were a democrat in office. I don't think so. Quit whining.:boo_hoo14:

Um, impeachment isn't there to use in case a crime might occur, Stupid.

And please explain what crime would occur from President Trump nominating a SC justice as is spelled out in the Constitution.

Not at all inconceivable that a crime will occur with this president. Did anybody say there was anything illegal about nominating a Supreme. I missed it. Post us a link.

That's different because the Republicans had the power to block Obama's nominee. The Democrats as a minority don't have that option available. It would be like if the Democrats led the Senate now. They would be able to block any of Trump's nominees.

So what Piglosi is saying is they will do anything they can, regardless of how illegal it may be, to usurp the power of the Senate.

Impeachment is a punitive action for high crimes and misdemeanors. A President or Senate doing their job as outlined in the Constitution is neither.

How are the two connected? A new investigation would be held in The House. The Confirmation of the next SCJ will be in The Senate.

Once articles of impeachment are transmitted to the senate, the senate must suspend all other business until the trial is over. Were you not paying attention the last time the house pulled this shit?

If The House can produce the articles of impeachment BEFORE a Senate confirmation vote.

The race is on.

So Trump will get more votes from that bullshit tactic then he would by getting a nominee confirmed.

Both sides do shit like that. Try to block the other side no matter what's at stake, just for the sake of blocking the other side. The GOP did it in the Senate for Trump's un-American activities with Ukraine.

Nominating a justice is not a crime, twit.

Impeachment is there just like all other punishments, it is there as a warning to others NOT TO DO THE SAME THING !!
:)-
Not do what? You don't impeach based on some imaginary possibility of a future crime. Nazi Pelousy is a lunatic.

The Constitution gives a sitting president the right to nominate and have his candidate considered.
