President Donald Trump decried the House Democrat-run impeachment process by sending House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a strongly-worded letter.
“I write to express my strongest and most powerful protest against the partisan impeachment crusade being pursued by Democrats in the House of Representatives,” Trump wrote in a six-page fiery letter to Pelosi.
The president made his case by pointing out that the impeachment process that the House Democrats employed was “an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power” and criticized the articles of impeachment for not meeting the expected Constitutional standard set by our Founding Fathers of High Crimes and Misdemeanors.
The president is right.
I don’t care who you are, if you’ve been following the impeachment process from the day Pelosi announced an impeachment inquiry, (the day before Trump released the transcript of the Ukrainian phone call that still to this day debunks their entire impeachment argument) without putting it up for a vote to the full House, then you know that the Democrats have abandoned all Constitutional principles and the precedent process.
“You have cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!” Trump wrote.
Trump accused Democrats of violating their oath of office and going against the Constitution. He also attacked Pelosi personally for a “false display of solemnity” during the partisan process.
Trump admitted that it was highly unlikely that Pelosi would be swayed by his letter.
“While I have no expectation that you will do so, I write this letter to you for the purpose of history and to put my thoughts on a permanent and indelible record,” Trump concluded.
Here’s the full letter:
It’s a fruitless attempt at getting Nancy Pelosi to see how ridiculous her party has been in the entire impeachment process, but at least the president has now gone on record in an attempt to sober up the Speaker and to let her know that she will go down in history as the most corrupt Speaker of the House. The sad truth is she doesn’t care. She’s that corrupt.
And Jesus wept.
