President Donald Trump lambasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a pair of Christmas night tweets, calling her “crazy” and asking why she should be allowed to wage a “scam impeachment against him.”
Then he went after her again Thursday morning.
“The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats said they wanted to RUSH everything through to the Senate because “President Trump is a threat to National Security” (they are vicious, will say anything!), but now they don’t want to go fast anymore, they want to go very slowly. Liars!,” the president tweeted early Thursday.
He then followed up with two more scathing tweets.
“Nancy Pelosi’s District in California has rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast – she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight!,” Trump continued.
“Nancy Pelosi has no leverage over the Senate. Mitch McConnell did not nose his way into the impeachment process in the House, and she has no standing in the Senate.” Brad Blakeman. Crazy Nancy should clean up her filthy dirty District & help the homeless there. A primary for N?”
These followed several late-night Christmas tweets.
“Why should Crazy Nancy Pelosi, just because she has a slight majority in the House, be allowed to Impeach the President of the United States?” he posted in his first tweet. “Got ZERO Republican votes, there was no crime, the call with Ukraine was perfect, with “no pressure.”
He continued that Pelosi had said an impeachment must be “‘bipartisan & overwhelming, but this Scam Impeachment was neither. Also, very unfair with no Due Process, proper representation, or witnesses. Now Pelosi is demanding everything the Republicans weren’t allowed to have in the House. Dems want to run majority Republican Senate. Hypocrites!”
Trump’s posts, all coming while he is staying at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., for the holidays were posted while Pelosi has continued to hold back from sending two articles of impeachment against him on to the Senate until rules for a trial are in place. The House a week ago voted along party lines to impeach Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Pelosi on Monday continued to defend her decision to hold back on sending the articles, or assigning impeachment managers, tweeting that “the House cannot choose our impeachment managers until we know what sort of trial the Senate will conduct. President Trump blocked his own witnesses and documents from the House, and from the American people, on phony complaints about the House process. What is his excuse now?”
