Minnesota Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib said many Democrats are demanding President Donald Trump be impeached when she appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.
As reported by RWT| When asked about impeachment by host Chuck Todd and specifically why she could not get the majority of House Democrats to defend calls for impeachment- Tlaib responded by saying, “I think it is moving toward that. It’s going to demand that.”
During the pathetic interview Tlaib constantly bashed Trump, Republicans and America in general.
Oh that was so painful to watch.
Of course you all remember when this POS told her radical supporters that Democrats will “impeach the motherf****r,” speaking about President Trump in front of children.
Henry Rodgers at The Daily Caller (DCNF) reports that Tlaib also said “this is not about the 2020 election, it’s about doing what’s right now for our country. This is going to be a precedent that we set when we don’t hold this president accountable to the rule of the law and to the United States Constitution.”
In early May, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Trump is “goading” Democrats to impeach him from office because he thinks it will help him fire up his base.
“Don’t tell anybody I told you this: Trump is goading us to impeach him,” Pelosi said during an event hosted by Cornell University in New York City. “That’s what he’s doing. Every single day, he’s just like, taunting and taunting and taunting.”
If Tlaib wants to move forward with impeachment, she will need to get Pelosi and other prominent members of the House on board.
However, Pelosi has previously said Democrats should not focus on impeaching Trump, saying it could be a “gift to Republicans.” The speaker of the House also said impeaching Trump is “not a priority” after his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in November 2018.
“There’s always kind of a calming feeling I tell folks when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports.” ~ Rashida Tlaib
