After Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi rammed the controversial election bill through the House an online petition was launched to impeach Pelosi and it’s gaining steam.
The petition has collected more than 850,000 signatures continues to grow.
“We the people ask that impeachment proceedings begin against Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for Treason against the American People. Article I, section 5 of the U.S. Constitution provides that “Each House” (that is, the Senate and the House of Representative) “may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member,” reads the petition.
The controversial election bill is called “For The People Act” which would nullify state elections laws, would require vote by mail in ballots in all 50 states, kill voter ID laws, and require a minimum of 15 days of early voting.
Not one Republican voted for the bill and it is considered dead on arrival at the Senate.
“H.R. 1 [the For The People Act] would legalize voting for convicted felons all over the country even if they were convicted of election fraud,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-California) said on Tuesday.
“Does that make sense to you? Not only is this dangerous, it’s unconstitutional.”
Over the weekend, Biden signed an executive order expanding the role of the federal government in the voter registration process in an added effort for the federal government to take over the election system. The President used the “insurrection” on January sixth as rational for the power grab.
“[W]e have seen an unprecedented insurrection in our Capitol and a brutal attack on our democracy on January 6th,” Biden said in a prerecorded video address released on Sunday. “A never before seen effort to ignore, undermine, and undo the will of the people,” Biden commented.
“In 2020, our very democracy on the line, even in the midst of a pandemic, more Americans voted than ever before,” he said.
Biden is warning that Republicans are preparing an “all-out assault” on voting rights across the country. What he’s referring to are the Republican controlled legislators that are passing laws to make sure the voting rules used during the pandemic are never allowed again.
Democrats know they can’t win election based off their policies and are now trying to change the voting laws to keep Republicans in the minority.
