FACT CHECK: Was Nancy Pelosi impeached by The Supreme Court?

A video shared on Facebook claims that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to impeach Nancy Pelosi, House Speaker.

Verdict: False

There is no evidence to suggest Pelosi has been impeached. This video doesn’t discuss Hunter Biden or Pelosi being impeached.

Fact Check:

Pelosi served as Speaker of the House from 2007 to 2011 before becoming speaker again in 2019, according to the House of Representatives website. Now, a viral Facebook video claims that she’s being impeached.

Supreme Court FINALLY signs Verdict to IMPEACH Speaker Pelosi because Hunter’s Laptop “IMPLICATES” her caption. The 10-minute video shows a compilation of Republican lawmakers, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert, California Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, criticizing Pelosi and other Democrats for various reasons. The caption of this post is wrong. Check Your Fact found no evidence or credible news reporting to suggest Pelosi is facing impeachment or was implicated in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. There is nothing on the Supreme Court’s website about an impeachment proceeding against the speaker. This video does not support this claim.

The U.S. Constitution gives the House the sole power to bring impeachment charges against public officials, not the Supreme Court, according to the House’s website. The website states that it is the responsibility of the Senate to convict impeached officials. (RELATED: FACT CHECK: Did The Supreme Court Overturn The 2020 Election? )
