More than 100,000 people have already signed the White House "We The People" petition calling for the impeachment of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was accused of treason.
The “We the People” petitioning system located on the White House website was launched by the Obama administration. It promises an official response to every petition that garners more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days.
The petition further places blame on the San Francisco Democrat for the recent partial government shutdown. It also discusses that House Speaker Pelosi refused to negotiate with the president in regards to funding the border wall and security, a move that caused federal employees to work without compensation for more than a month.
“Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorists 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.”
Furthermore, Big League Politics remarked that the process for impeaching a member of the House demands a majority vote of the chamber. Therefore, impeaching Pelosi will be unlikely under the current Democratic majority.
Recently, President Trump was involved in bold negotiations in an attempt to secure funding for the border wall and the border security.
Trump stated the development of the negotiations in a tweet:
“21 days goes very quickly. Negotiations with Democrats will start immediately. Will not be easy to make a deal, both parties very dug in. The case for National Security has been greatly enhanced by what has been happening at the border & through dialogue, we will build the Wall!”
To prevent a future government shutdown, President Trump has reached an initial agreement with the Democrats which will ensure a government reopening, and it’s anticipated to last for just three weeks.
