A White House website “We the People” petition declaring “IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!” has surpassed the “100,000 signatures in 30 days” requirement to trigger an official response from the White House.

The “Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!” petition, created by a person identified only as “M.G.” was created on January 18, 2019. Twelve days later, as of January 30, the petition had garnered more than 130,000 signatures – enough to earn a response, the website says:

“Needs 0 signatures by February 17, 2019 to get a response from the White House”

The petition argues that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is a traitor to the United States because she provides support to its “enemies” - illegal immigrants - by opposing border wall funding and by supporting sanctuary cities and tax-funded benefits for illegal aliens:

Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!
The Constitution defines, "Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens. Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe. Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don't get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU. IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!

As the White House “We the People” website explains, the petition platform empowers every American citizens “to become an agent of change” - and, if a petition gains 100,000 signatures in 30 days, the White House will “make sure it gets in front of the appropriate policy experts”:

“We the People is a platform that empowers the American public to take this action like never before – it’s a way for anybody, anywhere, to speak directly to the government and become an agent for change.

“With We the People, you can easily create a petition online, share it, and collect signatures. If you gather 100,000 signature in 30 days, we’ll review your petition, make sure it gets in front of the appropriate policy experts, and issue an official response.”
