Journalist Louise Mensch has been making a lot of questionable claims recently. A few days, she made the claim that there was a sealed indictment against President Donald Trump.

But now she has an even more explosive claim. Here it is:

Sources further say that the Supreme Court notified Mr. Trump that the formal process of a case of impeachment against him was begun, before he departed the country on Air Force One. The notification was given, as part of the formal process of the matter, in order that Mr. Trump knew he was not able to use his powers of pardon against other suspects in Trump-Russia cases. Sources have confirmed that the Marshal of the Supreme Court spoke to Mr. Trump.

But is this true?

Louise Mensch's Claims

This is an amazing claim from a journalist who has been controversial in the past. It has been repeated on progressive radio by callers, and all over the blogosphere.

Unfortunately, it's almost certainly false.

We have written about Mensch's claims in the past. She has made some accurate claims; however, she has also made some extremely wild claims. Those wild claims have earned her the name 'conspiracy queen.'

Mensch has also been called out by many well known journalists.

Glenn Greenwald said this about the Supreme Court claim: "This is just sad now. Eternal shame on the people with prominent platforms who have enabled this." He later clarified with this strong statement:

Meanwhile, The Intercept has said this about Mensch: "[her] history of public humiliations and pure bigotry is far too long to chronicle." And another well known lawyer and journalist who has written about the impeachment process -- Seth Abramson -- wrote this: "I said it before, I'll say it again: don't get your legal news from non-attorneys....these are literally nonsense words."

The upshot: don't bet on Trump being impeached anytime soon.
