40 conservative groups sign ethics complaint against Pelosi

(The Hill) A coalition of conservative groups has filed an ethics complaint against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claiming that she has usurped authority from the executive branch and "weaponized" the impeachment process.

In a complaint to the Office of Congressional Ethics, 40 conservative groups led by Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots Action wrote to the board's chairman, David Skaggs, arguing that Pelosi was carrying out an unconstitutional, partisan investigation.

The letter also argued that a vote scheduled for Thursday on a House resolution laying out the process and some procedures for impeachment was "insufficient" to dispel their worries about a partisan investigation.

In a statement to The Hill, Martin said that "the genie cannot be put back into the bottle" after Democrats began the impeachment inquiry without a formal House vote.

"Speaker Pelosiís latest impeachment gambit ó at last, a vote of the full House! -- is merely a continuation of her ongoing roughshod-running," said Martin.

"The genie cannot be put back in the bottle. All that 'evidence' that has been gathered before the casting of a single vote is tainted by the corrupt, secret process in which it was gathered. It is poisoned, and must be discarded for the sake of fairness," Martin added.

7. No doubt every one on that list has some connection to alt-right

Only the stupid in the cults will try anything to block our government from exercising their constitutional rights for their own agenda.
