(Right Country) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has used her time as top-ranking Democrat in the US to destroy her party and shame the American people and our republic.
She has used her position not to achieve important bipartisan legislative wins, work to make the country a better place, or stand up for the rights, security, and freedom of American citizens.
No, she’s used her position as a club to beat Trump with…but it may end up beating her.
WND reports that there is now a serious push to force the speaker to “vacate the chair” following a meeting of the entire Republican conference.
In a statement on Twitter, the Freedom Caucus explained that Pelosi’s “latest impeachment threat is proof she would rather use her post as Speaker to weaponize the chamber than as a means of accomplishing anything of substance for the country.”
“She must be removed from the speakership immediately.”

Freedom Caucus chairman, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), explained in a podcast interview with the Daily Signal that the effort has been in the works for several months and the most recent meeting was simply a matter of discussing the timing.
What has kick-started the push, he explained, was “this notion that she would even allow the suggestion of impeachment of the president for engaging in his constitutional prerogative, not just prerogative, but his obligation.”
WND explains that “Pelosi has threatened to impeach the president for not allowing the man selected by voters on Nov. 3 to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court resulting from the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
“The American people elected him to be the president of the United States for a full four years, and part of his duty is to fill Supreme Court vacancies,” Biggs explained.
“And so, this notion that you would impeach him for doing a constitutionally required duty, which is just a step too far, and then her rhetoric in the recent couple of weeks has just been absolutely abysmal and demeaning to the institution. So, that was the last straw.”
Last year, Pelosi oversaw the shameful sham impeachment cooked up by House Democrats.
The Republican-majority Senate acquitted Trump.
Biggs explained that his Democrat colleagues are intent on doing “anything” to stop the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“I mean, you have a really, really qualified individual, but what [Pelosi’s] wanting to do is even though the House has, virtually, nothing to do with the advice and consent, we just are observers, … she said it, basically, that she wanted to create a distraction, a distraction for this administration,” Biggs said.
“I would tell you that there’s largely consensus in the body that she needs to be removed. And if she actually does try to go through with any of this, the minority leader has said that he will make that motion posthaste, which is a privileged motion. So, it would get immediate attention,” he continued. “It’s despicable that they would attempt to use impeachment. I mean, what they did last time was impeachment because they don’t like the president. This time, they would use it as a distraction, because they don’t like the fact that he got to appoint [Judge] Amy Coney Barrett.”
