Nancy Pelosi is our contemporary Herman Goering, opportunistically seizing on last week’s Capitol Hill Protests as a crisis justifying banning the opposition and enacting one-party rule.
The British Daily Mail reports:
Dems will call on Pence to use the 25th Amendment today, or else Pelosi will begin impeachment of ‘deranged, unhinged and dangerous’ Trump – as she raises fears he will pardon MAGA mob
Nancy Pelosi has written to Democrats saying that, unless Mike Pence invokes the 25th Amendment on Monday, they will proceed with impeachment
Pelosi told 60 Minutes on Sunday that she wants impeachment for Donald Trump so he can’t run for office in the future
But that’s not all! Beyond officially and permanently ostracizing Trump (the Ancient Greeks only banished unpopular leaders for five years), Pelosi is exploring the alluring possibility of deeming that protest an “insurrection” and expelling GOP House members and Senators on the basis of the post-Civil War 14th Amendment, Section 3:
“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.”
PELOSI outlines her plan of action in a letter to Democrats.
A House vote Monday or Tuesday on a resolution calling on @VP to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump.
He'll have 24 hours.
"Next, we will proceed with bringing impeachment legislation to the Floor," she says. pic.twitter.com/8pVoRXedos
