The most concentrated effort in the House of Representatives thus far to impeach President Trump failed Wednesday, foiled by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The vote to introduce articles of impeachment was shot down, 332-95.
The vote was the third attempt from Texas Democrat Al Green to orchestrate Trump’s impeachment. 95 Democrats voted against dismissing the motion, but the 137 caucus members who obeyed Nancy Pelosi were more than enough to send the impeachment resolution to the dustbin.
Dismissing the impeachment articles represents a victory for the sitting Democratic Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, a mere day after she was exiled from the House floor for speaking out of turn and making outlandish accusations of racism against the President.
It’s unlikely the latest defeat of an impeach Trump resolution in the House will stop agitated Democrats from demanding the President’s impeachment. It’s unclear exactly why progressives such as Green see Trump as guilty of the high crimes and misdemeanors associated with the rarely-used motion, seeing as the Russia conspiracies espoused by Democrats for years have been debunked by none other than Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself for months now.
Impeaching Trump has ironically become a campaign issue for Democrats running for President, who seem to miss the redundancy of making Presidential impeachment a central issue in campaigns intended to replace him. Tom Steyer, the billionaire oligarch who’s raised hundreds of millions from unsuspecting saps on the premise of impeaching Trump, is set to wage a campaign for President on the backs of those who thought they were merely funding a milquetoast impeachment initiative.
In spite of his latest bid to impeach being shelved, Green stated that the President “will be impeached… people are starting to pay attention,” making it clear his repetitive gambits are little more than publicity stunts.
Democrats are set to repeat the stunt after Robert Mueller’s predictably repetitive testimony before Congress next week.
FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days
There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.
There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.
John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.
In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.
Yes, Trump has time to nominate and get his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. EVERY SINGLE VOTE ON A #SCOTUS NOMINEE OF THE LAST 45 YEARS was voted on in less time than what Trump has between now and the end of his current term. pic.twitter.com/og5aOZsiw1

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.
McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
