Supreme Court Doesn't Have Power To Impeach Pelosi

Senator Cruz and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) both criticize Pelosi in the video but neither say she was impeached by the Supreme Court and neither of them mentions Hunter Biden. Rep.

Also, it's the House of Representatives that has the power to impeach Pelosi, and Supreme Court doesn't have the power to remove or impeach elected members.
