Donald Trump amps up complaints, says Pelosi may be guilty of treason

Donald Trump amps up complaints, says Pelosi may be guilty of treason”

Another internal NRCC poll - taken September 28-30 among 800 individuals in Republican-held congressional districts - found that "voters oppose impeachment across the board".

Members of Congress can not be impeached, but the Constitution says each House of Congress "may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member". Lawmakers can also be censured.

At the heart of the controversy is a July 25 phone call Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which Trump repeatedly pressured Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son on suspicion of corruption.

The whistleblower alleged that Trump was "using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 USA election".

"We now have multiple instances and substantial evidence that President Trump and his administration have reached out to foreign governments to ask for their interference with the upcoming 2020 election, and have worked to cover up that request for interference", Norton said. Hearings on the case over Trump's conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart, Vladimir Zelensky, have begun in Congress last night Bulgarian time.

"I'm in Texas and they have a saying here: 'Don't Mess with Texas.' Well, I say, 'Don't Mess with the Constitution, Mr. President", Pelosi said on the call, according to Politico.

"That makes Nancy Nelos Pelosi nervous, at least as guilty as little Adam Schiff, of wrongdoing, crimes, even treason". I guess that means that they, along with all of those that evilly "Colluded' with them, must all be immediately Impeached!" posted Trump on Twitter.

Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump's lawyer: There's a lot more information to come out.

During testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson, was unable to say why the whistleblower waited so long before filing a complaint.

Mark Zaid, an attorney at the firm that represents the whistleblower who filed the original complaint regarding Trump's interactions with Ukraine, said that he was representing the second whistleblower.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham defended Trump amid the reports, claiming that "it doesn't matter how many people decide to call themselves whistleblowers about the same telephone call". They also said they had to restrict access to the visitor logbook after Republicans staffers leaked names of individuals signing in for job interviews when the majority was hiring this year.
