Petition to 'Impeach Nancy Pelosi for Treason' Surpasses Quarter-Million Signatures
White House 'We the People' petition has gone viral, far surpassing target
A petition hosted on the official White House website, to "Impeach Nancy Pelosi for crimes of Treason," has gone viral, gathering over a quarter-million signatures so far.
The “We the People” petition calls on Congress to “IMPEACH Pelosi” and accuses the Democratic House speaker of being "a TRAITOR to the American People."
At the time of press, the petition has received more than 260,000 signatures from people supporting the campaign to impeach Pelosi.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, the Georgia woman who created the petition, personally delivered a copy of the petition to Nancy Pelosi’s House office earlier this year.
Greene is continuing to encourage patriotic Americans to sign the petition, which has been given a boost by President Donald Trump’s recent calls for impeaching Pelosi’s over her handling of the Democrats' impeachment inquiry against him.
The petition argues that Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) is a traitor to the United States because she provides support to its “enemies” - illegal immigrants.
The petition highlights Pelosi's opposition to border wall funding and her support for sanctuary cities and tax-funded benefits for illegal aliens.
The statement in the petition reads as follows:
Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!
The Constitution defines, "Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens.
Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe.
Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don't get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU.
IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!

While it must be tried by the Senate, the U.S. Constitution does say civil servants may be removed through “impeachment.”
It also says either chamber of Congress may “expel” one of its members via a two-thirds vote by the members of that chamber:
“Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member.” - Article 1, section 5, clause 2
“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” - Article 2, section 4
“The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.” – Article 1, section 3, clause 6
The White House “We the People” website explains that the petition platform empowers every American citizen “to become an agent of change”
It also promises that if a petition gains 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House will “make sure it gets in front of the appropriate policy experts:”
“We the People is a platform that empowers the American public to take this action like never before – it’s a way for anybody, anywhere, to speak directly to the government and become an agent for change.
“With We the People, you can easily create a petition online, share it, and collect signatures.
"If you gather 100,000 signature in 30 days, we’ll review your petition, make sure it gets in front of the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”
The petition soared way beyond the 100k signature mark within the 30-day timeframe and has continued to gather thousands more since.
Greene is reportedly still awaiting the "official response" promised by the White House website.
