Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi caved to House Dem pressure and jumped on the impeach Trump bandwagon. But she has long despised Trump and even attacked him while on the House Floor. Louisiana Rep Abraham claims enough is enough and he is calling for the removal of the speaker of the House.
“A Louisiana Republican congressman introduced a resolution Tuesday to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., from the House of Representatives, the latest sign that frustration in the GOP is building as Democrats continue their impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
Rep. Ralph Abraham’s resolution stands no realistic chance of passing in the Democratic-controlled House. Likewise, Republicans have argued that Democrats’ potential articles of impeachment are all but certain to stall if they ever reach the Senate.
“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped,” Abraham said in a statement. “She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”
Abraham added: “House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020. I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”
Fox News is told that the resolution has been closely held, and hasn’t secured many Republican cosponsors — but that Abraham’s office expects it to gain traction.”
“Rep. Abraham is currently running for governor of Louisiana, and will face fellow GOP candidate Eddie Risponse in a primary election on Saturday.
NOLA.com staff writer Stephanie Grace declared in an op-ed on Tuesday that Abraham’s resolution was nothing more than a “stunt,” writing, “Abraham’s proposal is ridiculous, of course, and it reeks not of righteousness but of last-minute desperation.” Grace noted, “he and fellow Republican Eddie Rispone are neck-and-neck.”
Even if this is just a publicity stunt, like Grace is declaring, it is still possible. Pelosi has been out of bounds more than a couple of times and she has failed to uphold House decorum. She is also allowing Congress to waste more of our time on this unfounded impeachment investigation. If we remove her maybe we could get someone who would actually do their job.
