House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently announced that the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives will officially begin an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump over a phone call he had with Ukrainian President Zelensky back in July.
While Pelosi initially appeared confident in her impeachment push, she may soon be out of a job if her political stunt backfires like most believe it will.
And Trump took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to drop a bombshell about a “new” Speaker of the House.
“Leader McCarthy, we look forward to you soon becoming Speaker of the House. The Do Nothing Dems don’t have a chance!” Trump wrote.
The president’s tweet was in response to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy tweeting a screenshot of a letter he went to Pelosi, where he demanded that she halt her baseless impeachment inquiry into Trump.
“I’ve written to Speaker Pelosi to halt the impeachment inquiry until we can receive public answers to the following questions. Given the enormity of the question at hand—impeaching a duly elected president—the American public deserves fairness and transparency,” McCarthy wrote in his tweet.

Democrats are trying to remove Trump from office over a phone call he had with Zelensky over the summer.
Since announcing they opened an impeachment inquiry, things have gone from bad to worse for Democrats.
The Republican National Committee and Trump campaign raised a combined $15 million just days after Pelosi’s impeachment announcement.
The White House released a 5-page transcript of the call, which does not mention anything about “quid pro quo” or the U.S. withholding aid to Ukraine if they did not investigate Biden.
The Office of Intelligence Community Inspector General found that the “whistleblower” had a “political bias” in favor of one of Trump’s rivals in the 2020 presidential election.
Consider that: the whistleblower filed a complaint about a call that they never heard, and Democrats want Trump impeached over a call that they also never heard.
Since then, a lot has happened.
One Republican has already publicly announced they support congressional Democrats’ impeachment inquiry against Trump.
Another Republican claims 30 Republican senators would vote to impeach Trump if it were put to a vote.
And Rush Limbaugh went public and revealed what Utah GOP Sen. Mitt Romney told Pelosi in secret about Trump.
The entire situation has gotten so heated that a leaked report reveals that a top host at Fox News could be fired over his coverage of the Trump-Ukraine ordeal.
