'Impeaching the President for following the Constitution and fulfilling his duty would be a new low for Democrats.'
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 23, 2020
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) hails President Donald J. Trump for moving ahead without delay to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court, NFRW President Ann Schockett said.
“The President has a Constitutional obligation to fill Supreme Court vacancies no matter when they arise. It is one of his most important duties, borne out by the fact that no president in U.S. history has declined to fill a vacancy in an election year,” Schockett said. “Likewise, Senate Republicans, who hold the majority, are abiding by the Constitution by providing advice and consent on the President’s nominees.”
By contrast, House and Senate Democrats, led by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, are disgracing the Constitution by implying they might resort to impeachment to block the nomination. Equally shameful are Democrat threats to pack the Supreme Court, abolish the filibuster and Electoral College, and grant statehood to Democrat-leaning districts and territories if they don’t get their way with delaying the nomination.
“Impeaching the President for following the Constitution and fulfilling his duty would be a new low for Democrats,” Schockett said. “What’s more, their presidential candidate Joe Biden has refused to denounce these reprehensible revenge tactics which would seriously damage our American institutions and system of government.”
During the 2016 election and again earlier this year, President Trump was transparent with the American people by sharing his list of potential nominees. And, with the appointments of Neil Gorsuch in 2017 and Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, President Trump has a proven track record of appointing justices who will uphold the Constitution and the rule of law.
“The NFRW anticipates President Trump’s nomination on Saturday and the Senate’s thorough and swift consideration of the nominee in the coming days,” Schockett concluded.
Founded in 1938, the National Federation of Republican Women is the largest grassroots Republican women’s organization in the nation. NFRW provides a forum for women to serve as leaders in the political, government, and civic arenas. NFRW objectives are to recruit, train and elect Republican candidates, promote the principles of the Republican Party, educate the public and protect the integrity of our electoral process.
