Rep. Pete King, R-N.Y., on Thursday bashed Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her "reckless abuse of power" in directing the House Judiciary Committee to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
"@SpeakerPelosi's call for impeachment is a reckless abuse of power intended to overturn the 2016 election," King, who is retiring next year after 14 House terms, said on Twitter. "The Constitution vests power in the America people not progressive mobs.
"@POTUS Trump 2020 election guaranteed," King said.
Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a televised statement that she was moving on impeachment because of President Trump's alleged actions on Ukraine.
"The facts are uncontested," Pelosi said. "The president abused his power for his own personal political benefit at the expense of our national security.
"The president leaves us no choice but to act because he is trying to corrupt once again the election for his own benefit," she said.
