Rep. Collins introduces resolution to remove Pelosi as House Speaker
2020 Senate candidate and current Republican Representative Doug Collins (GA) has introduced a resolution that seeks to remove Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). The resolution states that Pelosi “is unable to adequately serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives and should therefore be removed from her position.”
A draft of the resolution was obtained by Fox which published excerpts.
The prime argument against Pelosi in the resolution is that she “has spent the majority of the House of Representative’s time pursuing baseless and fruitless investigations” against President Trump and his administration, including launching an impeachment inquiry against him in the fall of 2019.
“Over her tenure of her speakership, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has started to demonstrate a decline in mental fitness, calling into question her ability to adequately serve the House of Representatives and the American people,” the resolution continues.
The resolution adds: “On October 31, 2019, Speaker Nancy Pelosi oversaw the first party-line vote to begin an impeachment inquiry into a president in the history of our country.”
Collins also pointed out in the resolution that Pelosi “ripped up the state of the Union speech” in February “before the American people.”
In addition, the resolution calls out Pelosi for visiting “a shuttered hair salon in San Francisco where she received a blow-out without wearing a mask in violation of San Francisco’s laws concerning the coronavirus.”
Collins tweeted: “It’s clear that Nancy Pelosi does not have the mental fitness to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives. I’m introducing a resolution to push for her removal.”

President Donald Trump dismissed false reports that his campaign is running low on Monday. The president tweeted on Tuesday: “I keep reading Fake N*ws stories that my campaign is running low on money. Not true, & if it were so, I would put up money myself. The fact is that we have much more money than we had 4 years ago, where we spent much less money than Crooked Hillary, and still easily won, 306-223!”
