A controversial Democrat, who openly holds extremist political views, wants to remove the president from office before his first term ends.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) has accused President Donald Trump of undermining democracy by asking GOP Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger for help in winning another four years in the Oval Office.
“For the sake of our Constitution and our republic, we must hold this president fully accountable for his efforts to overthrow our democracy,” she said in a statement.
Omar called the pair’s Jan. 2 phone conversation an impeachable offense despite constitutional lawyer Alan Dershowitz’s recent remarks to Just the News that he “went through every word of that [phone call] transcript, there is no crime there, period.”
“The president’s effort to openly overturn our election results by putting pressure on the Republican secretary of state of Georgia is a crime, plain and simple,” she said. “It is another flagrant act of sedition from a president dead set on undermining the bedrock of our democracy: our elections.”
The Democrat does not care if President Trump’s first term only has two weeks left, and is determined to spend taxpayer money on a frivolous impeachment process.
“The Constitution does not make exceptions for the amount of time the president has left in office, or the popular support they have, and we cannot either,” she said. “The constitutional remedy for a high crime and misdemeanor committed by the president of the United States is clear: impeachment … the president and his collaborators become more emboldened when they are not held accountable for their crimes.”
The president believes Raffensperger knows the GOP originally won the Georgia election and how the result allegedly changed after ballots were destroyed and Dominion voting machine parts replaced.
“They are shredding ballots in my opinion, based on what I have heard, and they are removing machinery, and moving it as fast as they can—both of which are criminal fines and you cannot let it happen and you are letting it happen,” the president said according to a phone call recording leaked to The Washington Post.
The president directed Raffensperger to help give him another four years in the Oval Office by finding more votes and countering the alleged election fraud.
“Look, all I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state,” he said. “A lot of people think it was not a mistake, it was much more criminal than that but it is a big problem in Georgia. It is not a problem that is going away.”
However, Raffensperger completely dismissed the president’s claims as false and a recording of the conversation was leaked to the mainstream media.
“Well, Mr. President the challenge that you have is the data you have is wrong,” he said.
Turning Point USA founding President Charlie Kirk finds it strange the Democratic Party, which was declared winner of the November presidential race, is still trying to impeach the incumbent.
“Why would Democrats be trying to impeach Trump again over a phone call if they were so confident his term would be over in 16 days?” he said on Twitter.
