An official White House petition on We the People has reached 132,000 signatures. The petition asks for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to be impeached.
Petitions must reach 100,000 signatures to receive a reply from the White House. Since the petition has already greatly exceeded that, President Donald Trump’s administration will have to respond.
The petition reads: “Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People! The Constitution defines, ‘Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.’ Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens."
They go on to add, “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. Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don't get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU. IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!”
As of Wednesday afternoon, the petition had more than 132,000 signatures. It comes amid a battle between Pelosi and Trump over funding for the border wall.
President Trump is currently engaged in high-stakes negotiations with Pelosi and Democrats over funding for border security and the border wall.
Trump and the Democrats recently reached a temporary deal to reopen for the government for just three weeks. Now, a new deal must be met to avert yet another government shutdown only weeks after the longest shutdown in history.
How do you think Trump should respond to the Pelosi petition?
