    Pelosi says U.S. in ‘constitutional crisis’

    -Can you update us on when you will schedule the contempt vote on AG Barr? And, also, do you agree with Chairman Nadler that the country is currently in a constitutional crisis? -Yes, I do agree with Chairman Nadler, because the Administration has decided that they are not going to honor their oath of office. Now he’s staked out — because he has seen so much in the committee, the committee work. I’m very proud of the Judiciary Committee and the work that they have done.

    What’s a real constitutional crisis?

    What It Takes To Have A Constitutional Crisis | Ron’s Office Hours | NPR

    Just what does it take to have a constitutional crisis? “This could precipitate a constitutional crisis.” “… prompting a constitutional crisis.” “… a major constitutional crisis.” “Constitutional crisis” “Constitutional crisis” You could say that the Constitution is something of an owners manual for taxpayers. And like a lot of owners manuals, it can lead to a lot of frustration. Among the things the Constitution doesn’t have is a precise legal definition of constitutional crisis. And so the phrase constitutional crisis is meant to mean a moment when the Constitution is not enough to resolve a question or a conflict or a confrontation or an uncertainty.
