BREAKING: It’s Official, Nancy Pelosi Calls for Articles of Impeachment Against President Trump
On Thursday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially announced she will move forward with Democrat efforts to remove President Trump from office and called on House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to draw up articles of impeachment for a vote.
“The President leaves us no choice but to act,” Pelosi said. “Sadly, but with confidence and humility, with allegiance to our founders and a heart full of love for America, today I am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment.”
“The president’s actions have seriously violated the Constitution—especially when he says and acts upon the belief Article 2 says I can do whatever I want. No,” she continued. “The president abused his power for his own personal political benefit at the expense of our national security.”

It’s disgusting to hear Pelosi invoking America’s founding fathers in this announcement. Does anyone believe they would approve of this sham?

It's going to fail bigly. You will lose the house and and the guy will be re-elected

I stand by POTUS not because he is without sin but because the extremists and elite of the left are bent on destroying the nation solely to regain lost power. They created the Trump ego and he turned it on them. The left will wither on the vine to all of our detriment

Seems like election interference to me. These folks are incredibly hypocritical – it will come back to bite them. Truth always wins. God Bless the U.S.A. – Give these people clarity to seek forgiveness while there is still time.

Pelosi and the Democrats deserve to pay a heavy political price for this.
Hopefully, they will.
