Hours after being sworn into office, newly elected Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI) went on a profane rant threatening to impeach President Trump.
“People love you and you win. And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the mother***er,’” said Tlaib at a MoveOn event near Capitol Hill.
Tlaib is the first Palestinian American elected to Congress and one of two Muslim women sworn in to the 116th Congress.
Tlaib’s comments, as Fox News points out, come after the Detroit Free Press published her op-ed which called for President Trump’s impeachment:
“President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country,” Tlaib wrote. “Each passing day brings more pain for the people most directly hurt by this president, and these are days we simply cannot get back. The time for impeachment proceedings is now.”
Tlaib wasn’t the only Democrat focused on impeachment yesterday.
In a desperate attempt to thwart the president’s agenda, Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman (CA) filed articles of impeachment against Trump..
Sherman accused the president of obstructing justice for firing disgraced, leaking FBI Director James Comey and intimidating Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Sherman’s move prompted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) to call out his colleague, writing on Twitter, “We knew they couldn’t help themselves. Rep. Sherman files articles of impeachment on the President. Dems are more focused on stopping Trump than building the Wall and helping the country.”
