Trump Sends Scathing Letter on Impeachment to Pelosi

President Trump Tuesday sent a passionate, angry letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi protesting his impeachment as less fair than the Salem witch trials.

According to the Washington Examiner:

President Trump wrote a six-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attacking impeachment proceedings by Democrats, saying that they “cheapened the importance of the very ugly word” and that the charges against him are baseless.

“By proceeding with your invalid impeachment, you are violating your oaths of office, you are breaking your allegiance to the Constitution, and you are declaring open war on American Democracy,” Trump wrote Tuesday. The House is expected to begin considering articles of impeachment on the floor Wednesday.

He wrote that the proceedings inflicted “great damage and hurt” on his family.

“You dare to invoke the Founding Fathers in pursuit of this election-nullification scheme — yet your spiteful actions display unfettered contempt for America’s founding, and your egregious conduct threatens to destroy that which our Founders pledged their very lives to build,” he wrote. “Even worse than offending the Founding Fathers, you are offending Americans of faith by continually saying ‘I pray for the President,’ when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in a negative sense.”

“More due process was afforded to those accused in the Salem Witch Trials,” Trump wrote.

Trump . . . argued that fear of primary challengers was the real reason for action against him. “Each one of your members lives in fear of a socialist primary challenger — this is what is driving impeachment,” he wrote.

  1. I read the letter and it was passionate and to the point. I see nothing wrong with it. His counsel was surely involved in looking at it and make recommended changes, etc. He certainly has a right to defend himself and this was an appropriate venue for that to be done. He is right – I doubt that any other office holder could have dealt with the last 3 years the way he has. In another observation, I got an alert that the Chief Judge of the FISA Court wrote a scathing rebuke to the FBI on the FISA applications and gave them until January 10 to come up with solutions. I kept wondering when and IF the FISA court would show contempt for what had occurred. Most news outlets won’t focus on this, but it is extremely relevant to what is currently going on. I used to think the government was always right – unfortunately as I get older the more tepid I become in that thinking. Now that is a sad day!
