President Trump laid into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she refused to rule out impeachment as a way to stall him from nominating another Supreme Court judge.
In a tweet Monday, the President commented on her efforts to try and prevent him from filling late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s seat.
@SenateGOP Crazy Nancy Pelosi wants to Impeach me if I fulfill my Constitutional Obligation to put forth a Nominee for the vacated seat on the United States Supreme Court. This would be a FIRST, even crazier than being Impeached for making a PERFECT phone call to Ukrainian Pres.

His comments came just one day after Pelosi said in an interview that lawmakers are looking at every option to stop a nomination.
“We have our options,” she stated. “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 has implied she won’t rule out any tactic to stop a nomination from happening.
