Speaker Pelosi Targeted for Ethics Complaint by Forty Conservative Groups


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have moved beyond the pale with her latest impeachment maneuvering, and the American conservative community is none too pleased about it.

Pelosi’s sins are many.  First, she allowed for unconfined investigations into the President under the pretense of “impeachment”, but long before she would allow the Democratic party to use that word.  House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler’s lengthy and vitriolic hearings on Capitol Hill attest to that.

Then there was the “formal impeachment inquiry” – a historically unprecedented and vague bit of CYA work by the House Speaker and Intel Chair Adam Schiff, meant as a sort of warning shot over the White House.

Now that their semantics have failed, they’re moving on to an “impeachment resolution” – which is simply an authorization of the rules of engagement and still doesn’t not carry the weight of the articles of impeachment.

All of this legislative and political meandering has now saddled Pelosi with a sizable ethics complaint against her.

A coalition of conservative groups has filed an ethics complaint against House SpeakerNancy Pelosi, D.-Calif., alleging she has “hypocritically usurped” the authority of the president and “weaponized” impeachment proceedings.

“In launching her ‘official’ impeachment inquiry without benefit of a vote of the full House of Representatives and without indicating anything remotely qualifying as ‘treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors’ that is the subject of the inquiry, Speaker Pelosi has weaponized impeachment,” reads the complaint, led by Tea Party Patriots Action’s Jenny Beth Martin and signed by 40 different groups.

The complaint adds that Thursday’s scheduled vote on a resolution codifying the impeachment inquiry is “inadequate at this stage” and says Pelosi’s “one-person decision” is in violation of historical precedent. In previous cases, the House has launched an official impeachment inquiry into a president by holding a vote of all the members.

Thursday’s vote to authorize the “impeachment resolution” passed largely down party lines, but amid hellacious rebuking by conservative members of the House.
