Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her latest push to remove President Trump from office; comparing her party’s impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution.
“At the beginning of our country, Thomas Paine said ‘The times have found us.’ We think the times have found us now… Everyone in this room. So, here we are. None of us came to Congress to impeach a president, not anybody,” said Pelosi.
“We did take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” she added.

GOP Rep. Steve Scalise slammed Pelosi’s unofficial impeachment inquiry earlier this week; blasting the Democratic Party’s “soviet style tactics” in silencing Republicans.
“Adam Schiff’s opening statement, he didn’t read the transcript from the whistleblower, he read his own version. A false version. It shows how unserious they are about this process,” said Scalise.
“It also shows that they continue to mislead the American people and hide what the real facts are… Members of Congress should be able to see it… These kind of Soviet style tactics shouldn’t be allowed,” he added.
House Democrats are engaged in “Soviet style” tactics in their effort to attack @realDonaldTrump.

125 Republican members of the House of Representatives co-sponsored a bill this week that would formally censure Rep. Adam Schiff over his botched “parody” reading of a transcript between President Trump and the leader of Ukraine.
