Republican Louisiana Rep. Ralph Abraham has had enough with Nancy Pelosi and Democrat antics.
Speaking for a lot of American people who are sick and tired of Pelosi’s tireless crusade against the best president our country has had in a long time, Abraham declared in a statement,
“Nancy Pelosi’s vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped. She has disgraced the people’s House and weaponized the Speaker’s gavel for her party’s political gain.”
He went on to announce his call for Pelosi to be EXPELLED from Congress,
“House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020. I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker’s Office to be vacated.”
Rep. Abraham's introduction of the resolution to expel Nancy Pelosi from the House of Representatives echoes President Trump's own call for Pelosi - along with "Liddle" Adam Schiff - to be impeached.
As the president said on Twitter:
Fox News has more details on the resolution to get Pelosi out of the House:
A Louisiana Republican congressman introduced a resolution Tuesday to expel Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., from the House of Representatives, the latest sign that frustration in the GOP is building as Democrats continue their impeachment inquiry against President Trump.
Rep. Ralph Abraham's resolution stands no realistic chance of passing in the Democratic-controlled House. Likewise, Republicans have argued that Democrats' potential articles of impeachment are all but certain to stall if they ever reach the Senate.
"Nancy Pelosi's vicious crusade against our lawfully-elected President is nothing more than a politically-motivated witch hunt and it must be stopped," Abraham said in a statement. "She has disgraced the people's House and weaponized the Speaker's gavel for her party’s political gain."
Abraham added: "House Democrats spent nearly three years obsessed with election meddling only to dwarf any such efforts with their own deceitful plan to nullify the 2016 election and prevent President Trump from winning in 2020. I have introduced a resolution calling for her to be expelled from the House and for the Speaker's Office to be vacated."
Fox News is told that the resolution has been closely held, and hasn't secured many Republican cosponsors -- but that Abraham's office expects it to gain traction.
Abraham is running for Louisiana governor, along with fellow GOP candidate Eddie Rispone. A primary election will be held Saturday, and President Trump will visit Louisiana on Friday for a rally on behalf of both candidates as they seek to unseat incumbent Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards.
The text of the resolution reads simply: "Resolved, That pursuant to Article 1, Section 5, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, Representative Nancy Pelosi be, and she hereby is, expelled from the House of Representatives and the Office of the Speaker is declared to be vacant."
The resolution could serve as a potentially dangerous motion for House Speaker Pelosi. Because the House only needs a simple majority of 218 lawmakers to pass a resolution, and if every Republican were to vote for the resolution, only 21 Democrats would need to jointhe resolution to expel Pelosi from the House.
Republicans have started banding together to fight House Speaker Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) impeachment inquiry. Eighty-seven House Republicans, including Rep. Abraham, have cosponsoredHouse Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs’ (R-AZ) resolution to condemn Schiff for deliberately fabricating a conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Rep. Abraham, who is running for Louisiana governor, told Breitbart News Sunday that Democrats’ impeachment “insanity” has “energized” Louisiana Republican voters ahead of the gubernatorial election.
