President Donald Trump spent more time over the weekend making his case for why the House of Representatives should not proceed with an impeachment inquiry. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made the announcement September 24.
Rather than appeal to the public with constitutional law or proof of his innocence, Trump did what he usually does. Sunday night the President took to Twitter and resurrected a previously abandoned nickname for Nancy Pelosi.
"Nancy Pelosi knew of all of the many Shifty Adam Schiff lies and massive frauds perpetrated upon Congress and the American people, in the form of a fraudulent speech knowingly delivered as a ruthless con, and the illegal meetings with a highly partisan 'Whistleblower' & lawyer."
"This makes Nervous Nancy every bit as guilty as Liddle’ Adam Schiff for High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and even Treason. I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly 'Colluded' with them, must all be immediately Impeached!"
However the President's latest false claims found few allies online.
Many pointed out Pelosi is not the nervous one.
Others pointed out the inaccuracies in Trump's tweet.
Others focused on how absurd the latest presidential diatribe was.
Especially in the context of being a presidential diatribe.
Subpoenas were issued by the House to past and current members of the Trump administration. No final word yet on who will and who will not adhere to the requests in the House subpoenas.
