Speak Out: Articles of impeachment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that the House is moving forward to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Pelosi delivered the historic announcement as Democrats push toward a vote, possibly before Christmas.

With somber tones, drawing on the Constitution and the Founding Fathers, Pelosi stood at the speaker’s office at the Capitol and said she was authorizing the drafting of formal charges “sadly but with confidence and humility.”

“The president’s actions have seriously violated the Constitution,” she said. “He is trying to corrupt, once again, the election for his own benefit. The president has engaged in abuse of power, undermining our national security and jeopardizing the integrity of our elections.”

• I can’t wait to see the list of witnesses they will call in the Senate. Hillary, Obama, Comey, both Bidens, Pelosi, and all the rest will be on the stand under oath. I’ll be eating popcorn while watching the Dems house of corruption come crashing down on them. — Chris Behrens

• Better watch what they wish for!! Not a good time to impeach. We need our great presidents full attention on our national security. Priorities for Dems are far off. — Edna Staats

• It’s the House Democrats that are a real threat to our Constitution with their obvious abuse of power. Anyone that fails to recognize their perpetual lies against our president simply refuse to see the truth. Their feigned attacks are a total sham. The Democrats have never quoted the Constitution and praised our military and veterans like they’re doing now. The leftist media like Delaware State News with their one-sided reporting are a large part of the Democrat scams. — Philip L Puschel

• He will declassify everything necessary to defend himself in the Senate. Once he does that, the actions of the Democrats will be exposed and it will spring open the flood gates for charges of treason and sedition to be brought against the entire Democratic Party leadership. It’s going be biblical and the end of the Democratic party! Time to clean house of these insane radical Democrats so we can move forward as a nation. — Marc Auger

• She speaks the truth. — Merv Sparks

• Was she totally asleep during the last administration? She has opened up a can of worms. — Stephen Malkowski

• Nancy Pelosi is a very high intelligent woman and I can understand why the Trump trolls don’t understand what she is saying. — Joyce A. Getty

• All but one “witness” witnessed anything. And that witness said the president said, “I want nothing. No quid quo pro – nothing.” Knowing that the Democrats, with the aid of corrupt FBI and IRS agents, tried desperately to destroy our president, how can anyone say President Trump violated our Constitution? The Democrats are so hateful and crazed with anger, they will do and say anything to try to get their way. The only thing is, we the people don’t believe a word they’re saying. — Bernadette Marie Ricciardi
