The White House listed some House Democrat problems after Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her caucus pushed their impeachment efforts to the fastest speed in American history.
Pelosi announced on Thursday, Dec. 5, that she has asked the Democrat-led House committees “to proceed with the articles of impeachment” against President Donald Trump.

The speaker made the impeachment case official even after she stated in March, “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”
And though Democrats’ impeachment effort is baseless and partisan, and expected to divide the country deeply as Pelosi pointed out earlier this year, they just do not care.
In response to Pelosi’s announcement, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham issued a statement, accusing the speaker of pursuing an “illegitimate impeachment hoax.”
According to Grisham, Pelosi could have finally announced a vote on the USMCA trade deal to help America people, or outlined a plan to work with President Trump to lower prescription drug prices; or addressed the nation’s infrastructure, but instead “did exactly what she always does—ignore the needs of the American people and advance her selfish political desires.”
“Democrats’ sham impeachment is a blatant, purely partisan attempt to overturn the results of a free and fair election,” Grisham wrote, pointing out three problems that Pelosi and her caucus are encountering.
- First, Democrats in Congress have clearly abused their power.
- Second, Democrats in Congress have lied to the American people.
- Third, Democrats in Congress have made a mockery of the law.
“Speaker Pelosi’s instruction to advance this impeachment process—one that has violated every precedent—moves this Country toward the most partisan and illegitimate subversion of the Constitution in our history,” Grisham said.
