House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) answered a question by ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos about whether Democrats might impeach President Donald Trump a second time to prevent the Senate from confirming his nominee to the Supreme Court before the election by saying that she and the Democrats had “arrows in our quiver.”
Pelosi said she didn’t want to discuss Democrats’ specific plans with Stephanopoulos, but didn’t take anything off the table.
