Trump goes after Pelosi during impeachment proceedings

As House Democrats move to impeach President Trump on charges that he obstructed justice and abused the power of his office, Trump sent a six-page letter to Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House. The letter blasted the impeachment proceedings and accused the Democrats of trying to reverse the 2016 election by undemocratic means.

“This impeachment represents an unprecedented and unconstitutional abuse of power by Democrat Lawmakers, unequaled in nearly two and a half centuries of American legislative history,” the letter begins. “By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking your allegiance to the Constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy…It is a terrible thing you are doing, but you will have to live with it, not I!”

Pelosi told reporters that the letter was “really sick,” adding that she didn’t read the whole thing.

“I don’t have a reaction. It’s ridiculous,” Pelosi said to CNN. “I mean, I haven’t fully read it. We’ve been working…I’ve seen the essence of it. It’s really sick.”

Late-night comedians and cable news hosts had fun with the letter. Rachel Maddow, host of The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC, called it “cuckoo for cocoa puffs.” But Trump insists his letter has received “good marks” from the public.

“Good marks and reviews on the letter I sent to Pelosi today. She is the worst!” Trump tweeted. “No wonder with people like her and Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, D.C. has been such a mess for so long – and that includes the previous administration who (and now we know for sure) SPIED on my campaign.”
