May halong galit at batikos ang laman ng sulat ni US President Donald Trump kay House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Sa anim na pahinang sulat ni Trump, na inakusahan nito si Pelosi nang umano’y “open war” sa American democracy.
“I write this letter to you for the purpose of history and to put my thoughts on a permanent and indelible record. One hundred years from now, when people look back at this affair, I want them to understand it, and learn from it, so that it can never happen to another president again.”
Dagdag pa nito, hindi siya nabigyang ng panahon para maidepensa ang kaniyang sarili at pinagkaitan daw ito ng basic Constitutional Due Process.
Magugunitang pagbobotohan bukas ng mga mambabatas sa US Congress ang impeachment complaint laban kay Trump bago ito dalhin sa Senado ng Amerika.
“You are turning a policy disagreement between two branches of government into an impeachable offence – it is no more legitimate than the Executive Branch charging members of Congress with crimes for lawful exercise of legislative power,” giit pa ni Trump sa kanyang sulat. “Even worse than offending the Founding Fathers, you are offending Americans of faith by continually saying ‘I pray for the president’, when you know this statement is not true, unless it is meant in the negative sense.”
Nagbunsod ang nasabing impeachment complaint sa pagtawag ni Trump sa Ukraine President at pinapaimbestiga ang katunggali nito na si dating US Vice President Joe Biden.
“You know full well that Vice President Joe Biden used his office and $1bn of US aid money to coerce Ukraine into firing the prosecutor who was digging into the company paying his son millions of dollars,” ani Trump kay Pelosi
