House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is facing a mounting offense to oust her from her position in the House of Representatives.
Leading the charge is Representative Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who is calling for Pelosi to “vacate her seat.”
“I’ve been leading the efforts in the House of Representatives to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Most Republican Members of Congress wholeheartedly agree that this action must be taken,” Biggs said in a video posted on Twitter Friday. Watch:

Republicans go after Pelosi
In a separate statement released on Wednesday, Biggs gave an update on the Republicans’ efforts to remove Pelosi so far. “Speaker Pelosi has abused her position, demonized millions of Americans, and extracted political revenge on President Trump by impeaching him. Millions of Americans, including many of our constituents, agree that Nancy Pelosi must go now,” Biggs wrote.
“Thanks to our efforts, House Republican leadership allowed us to bring this proposal for debate within our conference,” Biggs wrote. “I have spent many hours over the last few weeks, strategizing with my colleagues and talking to them about the necessity of taking this action.”
“Most Republican Members of Congress wholeheartedly agree that Nancy Pelosi must be removed as Speaker of the House,” he added, continuing:
I will not stop fighting to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy has already indicated that he might use the Freedom Caucus’s motion to respond in the event that Speaker Pelosi abuses her position yet again to impeach President Trump or Attorney General Barr over the Supreme Court vacancy. I will continue to work with our Republican leadership and our conference to ensure that Nancy Pelosi is no longer able to destroy our republic as Speaker of the House.
The last year has been a rough one for Pelosi and has also demonstrated why she is absolutely unfit for leadership. Pelosi was the primary force responsible for the sham impeachment of President Trump. While she and the Democrats were busy with impeachment, the coronavirus was spreading across the world.
“She’s going to end up as a footnote in history,” Biggs said of Pelosi. “She’s going to lose Congress, the House of Representatives two times as Speaker of the House. That’s never been done before in the history of the country.”
The future isn’t bright for Pelosi and the Democrat party. Republicans in the House like Rep. Biggs are actually the least of their concerns right now.
Pelosi and the Democrats depend on retaining their majority in the House. But more important than that, Democrats are pinning their hopes on taking the Senate and beating President Trump in November.
The issue is that the odds are looking ever more in favor of President Trump and there is very little hope Democrats will take the Senate. If Democrats fail to take down President Trump this election, it would not be surprising to see some major changes in the party — starting with Pelosi.
