House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has refused to rule out impeaching President Trump if the Republican-controlled Senate attempts to confirm his Supreme Court nominee during a lame-duck session of Congress.
One of those pushing back against Pelosi’s suggestion is Democrat and former Obama White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.

So, Rahm Emanuel says Speaker Pelosi is engaging in “corrosive” politics.
When Rahm thinks you're engaging in gutter politics, what do you think America will think of it, Nancy? https://t.co/yJ20Pujt5M

When you've lost Rahm "Never let a crisis go to waste" Emanuel, then you know you've gone too far. https://t.co/Y53OmSBmKj

Wonder if other Democrats (and how many, if so) feel the same as Emanuel?
