Impeachment will tarnish Pelosi legacy forever
Dec. 17, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to President Donald Trump's letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating "It is time for you and the highly partisan Democrats in Congress to immediately cease this impeachment fantasy and get back to work for the American People":
"House Democrats have pursued a false narrative that President Trump abused his office for personal political advantage when in fact he was both pursuing the law and the interests of the United States in seeking to ensure that Ukraine dealt with its long history of corruption when considering military funding for Ukraine. As Trump noted in his letter to Speaker Pelosi, 'It is time for you and the highly partisan Democrats in Congress to immediately cease this impeachment fantasy and get back to work for the American People.'
"It is clear that Pelosi and Schiff's partisan impeachment push is nothing more than a politically motivated effort by Democrats to abuse their own positions of authority for perceived personal political benefit. While this irony might be lost on Pelosi, Schiff and Nadler, it is not lost on the American people, who expect in the least for a crime to be cited in any impeachment, which Democrats have failed to do her. It is time for Speaker Pelosi to end this partisan impeachment travesty before she does any more damage to our nation's standing in the world and the Constitution. The damage that this historical precedent created by a partisan impeachment without any crimes does to future presidents is incalculable, and Speaker Pelosi should heed President Trump's call for her to cease and desist from pursuing this tragic blunder before it tarnishes her legacy forever."
