Nancy Pelosi Reacts To Trump Impeachment Letter: 'It’s Really Sick'
Trump sent a six-page letter to the House Speaker on Tuesday
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to President Donald Trump's letter blasting the impeachment process, calling it “ridiculous” and “really sick.”
“I don’t have a reaction. It’s ridiculous,” Pelosi said on Tuesday.
“I mean, I haven’t fully read it. We’ve been working. I’ve seen the essence of it. It’s really sick.”
Trump sent a six-page letter to the House Speaker on Tuesday criticizing the party for bringing forward articles of impeachment because of his alleged request to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate 2020 candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
“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,” the letter reads.
“You are the ones interfering in America’s election. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy.
You are the ones Obstructing Justice.
You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political, and partisan gain.”
A new CNN impeachment poll revealed Monday that support for Trump's impeachment dropped significantly among Democrat voters by double-digits.

According to CNN:
“Support for impeaching Trump and removing him from office stands at 45% in the new poll, down from 50% in a poll conducted in mid-November just after the conclusion of the House Intelligence Committee’s public hearings."
“Opposition to impeachment and removal stands at 47% in the new poll, up from 43% in November.”
Additionally, a USA Today poll found that “in the wake of combative impeachment hearings, those surveyed oppose by 51%-45% a Senate vote to convict Trump on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.”
USA Today’s poll added:
“Trump defeating former vice president Joe Biden by three percentage points, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by five points, and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren by eight points.
In hypothetical head-to-head contests, Trump also led South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg by 10 points and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg by nine.”
