'Impeach the motherf***er': Newly-elected Democratic congresswoman vows to impeach Donald Trump

'Impeach the motherf***er': Newly-elected Democratic congresswoman vows to impeach Donald Trump

"We're going to go in there and impeach the motherf--er", Tlaib said.

It was a striking coda to the Democrats' heady ascendance to the House majority Thursday, sparking unusually public corrections from House veterans. I think she dishonored herself and I think she's dishonored her family.

"'The time for impeachment proceedings is now", the column concludes'. "What I'm more interested in is protecting the Mueller investigation, seeing where the facts take us".

Prior to making the comments, she had spoken about the meaningfulness of being a role-model for young girls. By rebuking one, the more seasoned Democrats were effectively warning the others. "I'm proud of you", he said.

Tlaib's comments came at an event sponsored by the progressive group MoveOn, where she recounted a conversation with her son about the president.

Tlaib reiterated her position in December, calling for Trump's impeachment after he threatened to shut down the government over border wall funding, and again after he followed through on the threat.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who also attended this morning's presser on the hill, was just as outraged by Tlaib's words. Pelosi might even be able to use it as leverage when negotiating with POTUS.

Sherman and Green pushed to impeach Trump in 2017 and 2018 but the House blocked those resolutions twice, with the help of Democrats who said the effort was premature.

While Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been hesitant to speak strongly in favor of impeachment, she has not ruled it out. You officially have a new Congresswoman who is ready to fight for you.

According to CNN, Tlaib will be sworn in on Thomas Jefferson's Quran, a symbol, Tlaib said, that "Islam has been part of American history for a long time". She refused to repeat them because "she doesn't want her kids to hear them". "She yielded to that temptation". I assume she's new.

Republicans have bridled at Tlaib's comments, using them to portray Democrats as politically-motivated opponents seeking retribution against Trump rather than to find common ground.

Some of Tlaib's classmates were pursued for reaction - standard results when a political ally says something that raises eyebrows.

She said she was elected because she talked about preserving health care.
