Trump Impeachment Divides Democrats in Their First Week Controlling House

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of MI made history yesterday as one of the first two Muslim women sworn into Congress, as well as the becoming the first Palestinian-American representative.

Rashida Tlaib, who was sworn in on Thursday, said "we're gonna impeach the motherf--" during a celebration party with supporters.

He went on to say that while Trump could easily be impeached by the House of Representatives, where the Democrats have once again taken control, it's "highly unlikely" enough Republicans senators would vote to convict and remove Trump from office.

The blue wave, powered in large part by voters who said they did so in opposition to the President, means the House is full of new Democratic members with a firm mandate to attack Trump frequently.

She pushed back on the thrust of the remark while defending Tlaib, saying it's "nothing worse than the president has said".

"People love you and you win".

Politics will not play a role one way or the other in whether Democrats decide to impeach the President, Pelosi said on Thursday.

He went on to say he had "done nothing wrong" with regard to collusion with Russian Federation and had "had the most successful first two years of any president".

We heard the same thing when Robert De Niro said, "Fuck Trump", at the Tony Awards past year and when other celebrities have engaged in similar "strong language", as Sarah Huckabee Sanders described Trump's use of four-letter words.

The US government has been partially shut down for two weeks now after Democratic lawmakers refused to meet President Donald Trump's demand for $5.6 billion to build a wall on the US-Mexico border to stem the flow of illegal migrants.

"I did talk to a source close to the president who said earlier this evening that the president has expressed concern that he could be impeached", Jim Acosta, CNN's chief White House correspondent, told Anderson Cooper in December. "#unapologeticallyMe", Tlaib also tweeted on Friday.

She added, "Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don't think we should make a big deal of it". "I continue to believe that obstruction of justice is the clearest, simplest, and most provable high crime and misdemeanor committed by Donald J. Trump".

"I am not talking about those things", said Rep. Abigail Spanberger with a laugh when asked Friday to respond to Tlaib's remarks. That's why it is important to protect the Mueller investigation and that's why it's important to do our own inquiry. "And I think those kind of comments do not take us in the right direction", House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said, as cited by the Hill. Rep. She was just elected to her first term in Congress in November, winning the seat formerly held by John Conyers.
