A petition to remove nancy pelosi and Chuck Schumer from the Capitol has garnered nearly a Million signatures. The petition started by one Michelle Hughes read;
We the people ask that impeachment proceedings begin against Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer for Treason against the American People. Article I, section 5 of the U.S. Constitution provides that “Each House” (that is, the Senate and the House of Representative) “may determine the rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a member.”
Meanwhile nearly two dozen top Republicans in the lower chamber on Wednesday called on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-CA to reopen the Capitol for public visitor access.
In a letter obtained by Fox News, ranking member of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., accused the speaker of using the coronavirus pandemic as a pretext to “assert control over every aspect of American life.”
“Your closure has continued despite safe and effective vaccines, treatments, and testing being widely available to most of the population for almost a year,” the letter signed by 23 Republican ranking members said.
“Why are you unnecessarily keeping the People’s House closed?” they questioned.
The closure coincided with nationwide shutdowns, including access to the White House, all Smithsonian museums and even national parks.
But the lawmakers pointed out that since the first lockdown nearly two years ago, nearly 81% of Americans ages 12 and up have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine – a sentiment echoed by President Biden in his address to the nation Tuesday.
