Amid all the talk about impeaching President Trump, more than 100,000 people have signed a White House “We the People” petition calling for the impeachment of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, accusing her of treason.
Created by a citizen identified only as “M.G.,” it accuses Pelosi of being a traitor to the American people who is beholden to the interests of illegal immigrants, Big League Politics reported.
The “We the People” petitioning system on the White House website was initiated by the Obama administration. It promises an official response for every petition that gathered more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days. The Pelosi petition was launched just 11 days ago.
The petition further blames the San Francisco Democrat for the recent partial government shutdown. It argues she refused to negotiate with President Trump over funding for border security, causing many federal employees to work without pay for more than a month.
“Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens,” the petition states.
“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.”
After further complaints about the House speaker, it concludes with, “IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!”
Big League Politics noted the process for impeaching a member of the House requires a majority vote of the chamber, meaning it’s unlikely under the current Democratic majority.
Among the other “We the People” petitions that have have met the 100,000 signature threshold is one calling on President Trump to resign for alleged violation of the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, charging he has “complicated business entanglements” that “create a conflict of interest for national security issues.”
