Pelosis latest impeachment threat is proof she would rather use her post as speaker of the House to weaponize the chamber than as a means of accomplishing anything of substance for the country.
In response to the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Pelosi threatened to impeach President Trump..... When pressed on what grounds she has to move forward, the speaker was shockingly coy,we have arrows in our quiver that Im not about to discuss right now.
As always, Pelosi's interests are 'diabolical'.
Understanding that the House has no role in appointing or confirming Supreme Court nominees, Pelosi is looking to do what she does best: obstruct.In an effort to undermine the processes laid out in the Constitution and thwart any and all potential progress on Capitol Hill, the speaker wants to push through a partisan impeachment case in the House in a far-fetched play to jam up the Senate so the upper chamber has no time to confirm whomever Trump nominates to the Supreme Court.
Pelosi wont stop using every tool in her arsenal to chip away at the foundations of our democracy in her pursuit to maintain power.
Two weeks ago, she signaled in a letter to House Democrats that she will wage a full-blown war on election results if Trump wins in November,..Pelosi is undermining our democracy, destroying the institution of Congress, sabotaging our economy, and fomenting violence and danger in our communities.
It is time for the House of Representatives to vote on removing Pelosi from her post. All members of the House, Republican and Democrat, should go on record of being in favor or against Pelosi. It is time for the House of Representatives to work for the people again, but it cannot do that without new leadership.

The motion to vacate the chair is a parliamentary rule (peculiar to Congress) that describes the right of any member of the House of Representatives to call for the formal removal of a sitting Speaker of the House and the election of a new one.
This power comes, technically, not from the Constitution but rather from a parliamentary rules manual written by Thomas Jefferson during his tenure as Vice Presidentand President of the Senatebetween 1797 and 1801. The manualnow known as Jefferson's Manualwas adopted by Congress as an official rule book in 1837. The manual does not supersede the Constitution. Instead, it provides the rulesessentially the bylawsfor how Congress conducts its legislative business.
Let AOC take over!
Interesting...I’m not familiar with that but since those Reps. who authored this are of the Freedom Caucus I would suspect they know....but will it be talk or action?
I realize the news cycle is not something that Trump can control, but I wish he would talk more about the inaction of the house under Pelosi’s leadership.
They have done nothing but obstruct. Period. Trump needs to ask Americans if this is what they expect from their congressional representative. Repeatedly.
Perhaps that is what they expect in these districts, but keep in mind that Trump won many of these districts that the democrats took in 2018.
Surely the GOP has a shot at this?
Another thing to watch. The democrats have a decent sized group of representatives in the house that are fracturing from Pelosi. It is possible that they will band together like the Freedom Caucus and Pelosi might lose the gavel. A slim possibility given the fundraising control that Pelosi maintains, but there is a chance. More than a few of them are pissed off going into this election.
To help with the frustration garnered after watching or reading about Spkr Pelosi, if for nothing else but to vent, try looking into a nine knot spell
.. whether you think its phooey.
Obstruct in an effort to undermine the processes laid out in the Constitution.
The party have been doing that for years Ted Kennedy winks.
Either she doesn't have any grounds for impeachment and she is using and abusing the power of her office... Or she has something that could be an impeachable offense and she's been sitting on it - making her an accomplice after the fact (by helping to keep it a secret) in whatever high crime or misdemeanor she would accuse the President of.
You can't have it both ways Nancy - you're guilty as sin.
Leave her there and give her a mic.
With some people, it’s best to just let them talk as much as they want and smile the whole time.
AOC has already done that. San Fran Nan just hasn't acknowledged it yet.
not gonna happen. pelosi has the biggest cajones of any dem in congress; just like swalwell is the prettiest chick in congress.
We are eventually going to find out that this whole mask-wearing business was forced upon us so that the old gasbag Nancy Pelosi could sport one around her neck to try and hide her saggieness.
“a motion to vacate the chair” played a key role in the resignation of House Speaker John Boehner so why couldn’t it apply to Pelosi?....Perhaps they don’t actually have to use it just to threaten using it?
Pelosi has said several times they will go down fighting ...I doubt she’d feel threatened.
Hopefully the voters will take care of this issue on November 3.
The threat of impeachment for Trump doing what he legally can do proves that crazy nancy is unfit for public office.
Let her try to impeach. It will only hurt them and help us. I would actually welcome it.
How about the country?
