For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction as Nancy Pelosi is learning the hard way.
A petition started by Marjorie Taylor Greene to impeach Pelosi has surged past the quarter-million signature mark.
The petition surpassed its goal of 100,000 signatures with ease. The American people are not behind this impeachment inquiry and they will not be with an election coming up in a year.
Look, they would be better off censuring Trump or passing laws that give the power Congress ceded to the executive branch back to Congress.
The executive branch has been given extraordinary power over the last 40 years and no party in power will ever seek to limit their power while they have it. In short, the executive branch will only grow more powerful.
So, if Congress was serious, they could pass a law restoring its powers and limiting the executive branch’s, that would be the right debate to have in front of the American people.
But impeaching Trump with a year before an election is bad policy and worse politics.
A petition hosted on the official White House website, to “Impeach Nancy Pelosi for crimes of Treason,” has gone viral, gathering over a quarter-million signatures so far.The “We the People” petition calls on Congress to “IMPEACH Pelosi” and accuses the Democratic House speaker of being “a TRAITOR to the American People.”
At the time of press, the petition has received more than 260,000 signatures from people supporting the campaign to impeach Pelosi.
Created January 18, 2019, on the “We the People” website, the petition has now far exceeded the minimum of 100,000 required to warrant an official response. Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia woman who created the petition, personally delivered a copy of the petition to Nancy Pelosi’s House office earlier this year.
Greene is continuing to encourage patriotic Americans to sign the petition, which has been given a boost by President Donald Trump’s recent calls for impeaching Pelosi’s over her handling of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against him.
The petition reads: “Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!
The Constitution defines, “Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens.
Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe.
Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don’t get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU. IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!”
