40 conservative groups sign ethics complaint against Pelosi

A coalition of conservative groups have filed an ethics complaint against Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), arguing among other charges that she has usurped authority from the executive branch by "weaponiz[ing]" 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 board chairman David Skaggs arguing that a vote scheduled for this week on the House's impeachment inquiry was "insufficient" to dispel notions of partisanship from the process, which they argued had been undertaken unilaterally by the Speaker.



"Speaker Pelosi's conduct is an encroachment across the constitutionally-mandated separation of powers. She has no business examining or investigating the president's legitimate exercise of his authority to determine the foreign and national security policy of the United States," reads the complaint.

"In launching her "official" impeachment inquiry without benefit of a vote of the full House of Representatives and without indicating anything remotely qualifying as "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors" that is the subject of the inquiry, Speaker Pelosi has weaponized impeachment," the complaint continued. "She and her Democratic colleagues are using the impeachment process as a weapon of partisan political battle, rather than as the means to defend the Constitution our Framers meant it to be."

1. What 40 conservative groups?

This is the second post I've read this claim... but as far as I can tell, neither link identifies all those groups.

3. The strategy, if you want to call it that, is pretty simple.
