Deputy Chair of the DNC Keith Ellison raised eyebrows throughout DC this week, bizarrely suggesting that Congressional Democrats could “theoretically impeach” Judge Brett Kavanaugh if confirmed to the US Supreme Court.
Ellison was speaking before a packed event in Washington, DC when he was asked if there was “any possibility” the House could remove a sitting Supreme Court Justice; saying “It’s probably not going to happen, but it could theoretically happen.”
“You’d have to find some evidence of like, corruption, or something like that,” said Ellison. “I will say that there have been lower court judges who have been impeached.”
“So I agree with Jill, it’s probably not going to happen, but it could theoretically happen,” he added.
BREAKING: President Trump Picks BRETT KAVANAUGH to Join Supreme Court
President Trump officially unveiled his pick to replace outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court Monday night; announcing his decision to nominate federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh currently sits on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, which commonly rules on hot-button issues and major cases regarding federal law.
The 53-year-old judge was nominated to the circuit court by former President George W. Bush and confirmed back in 2006 by a 57-36 vote.
The President’s comments come after days of fevered speculation surrounding the nation’s highest court with swing-vote Anthony Kennedy announcing his planned retirement just weeks ago.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowed to fight the President’s nominee Monday night, saying her party will work hard to “avenge President Obama,” whose Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland stalled throughout the confirmation process.
ARMAGEDDON AGAIN? Kamala Harris Predicts ‘DESTRUCTION OF CONSTITUTION’ after Kennedy Retirement
Hyper-liberal Senator Kamala Harris painted a bleak picture for the country Wednesday night, saying, “We’re looking at the destruction of the Constitution” if Trump gets his next Supreme Court Justice confirmed.
Harris was speaking with MNSBC’s Chris Matthews when she unleashed her dire prediction just hours after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his plan to retire from the Supreme Court this July.
“If Trump gets what he wants here, what’s the Court going to look like for the next 30 years?” asked Matthews.
“We’re looking at a destruction of the Constitution of the United States, as far as I can tell based on all the folks he’s been appointing thus far for lifetime appointments,” she fired back.
