LANE MILLER started this petition to US dept of justice

Article II, Section 3, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution states that the president "shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient."

You saw the President do EXACTLY that when he gave a copy to Nancy Pelosi for the House of Representatives, and another copy to Vice President Pence, who is president of the Senate.
By handing them those papers, President Trump complied with his constitutional duties (a speech is not required), and those papers officially became a national document and part of our national archives.

By destroying the copy given to the House of Representative, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi violated 18 USC § 2071, which reads:

"(a)Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both."

We all saw her tear up the President's official communication to the Congress' copy for the House.

And the law is clear.
She should be prosecuted and removed from office

Continuing with Section (b): (18 U.S.C. § 2071. Section 2071 (b) )

"(b)Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States."

As we see, not only is she liable for prosecution, she is also now unfit for office.

She committed this crime in a very public manner, on the floor of the US House of Representatives, showing great contempt not only for the rule of law, but for the office she holds and the American people she supposedly serves.
