Under Article 4 Section 11 of the US Constitution, the Senate has the power of checks and balances over the House of Representatives. One of their sworn duties is to ensure that the House moves forward with their constitutional duties in a fair and expedient way.
Mitch McConnell has tasked the Senate Judiciary Committee with beginning the proceedings to enter a vote of “no confidence” against Pelosi, which would begin the process of forcing the Democrats to replace her as Speaker.
A No Confidence vote isn’t the same as removal from office or impeachment. Pelosi would still be a US Representative until the next election. She would not be able to run for Speaker again, however, which would effectively end her career.
House Democrats scoffed at the thought, insisting they’d simply replace her with another New York or California Democrat, making sure that rural America is never fairly represented on Capitol Hill. As for Pelosi, she laughed it off and called McConnell a “crazy old turtle-man.” She sent this statement to his office via email:
You’re a clown and the American people see right through it. You can have me removed as Speaker all you like. It will be the end of your whining, sniveling career. The American people will send you back to Kentucky with your turtle tail between your legs.
You’ve been warned, but we both know you’ll move forward anyway.
That’s what you call a complete lack of respect for our laws and our processes. Not since the Democrats insisted on the illegal nomination of a Supreme Court Justice in a President’s last year of his last term have we seen such tomfoolery from the left.
This time, it’s not going to work out for them. With Pelosi gone, the Dems will have to resort to handing the gavel to one of their weaker, younger females like AOC or Ilhan Omar, even though both of them have questionable citizenship backgrounds.
Watching them implode is going to be fun.
