Rashida Tlaib on Trump: We're going to impeach that motherf-ker

House Republicans scrambling to hire lawyers to fight off potential Trump impeachment report Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib Will be Sworn in Using Thomas Jefferson's Quran

"I don't know what she said, but I think you respect the office", Sherman said. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just this week said it was something to look at but only after special counsel Robert Mueller issues a report on the Russian Federation probe. Pelosi is 78, while Tlaib is 42.

Pelosi said Friday at an MSNBC town hall said she wouldn't censor her colleagues, and that Tlaib's language was no worse than things Trump has said.

On Friday, she refused to back down. "You can't impeach somebody who is doing a great job", he said, echoing his tweet from Thursday morning. "No matter what this President says or does, it seems to take our focus away from the harm & pain we allow him to cause our people", she tweeted.

CNN posted a love letter to freshly sworn-in Rep. Rashida Tlaib by Claire Foran yesterday afternoon, a few hours before Tlaib celebrated with a not quite quotable quote (video below).

Thursday night wasn't the first time Tlaib has advocated for impeaching Trump.

In an interview with The Detroit Free Press, Tlaib emphasized that she wanted to use the Quran because she "believe (s) in secular government".

Tlaib is only the second Palestinian-American to make it to Congress, after Justin Amash, a Republican, was elected in western MI in 2009.

Specifically, in the full anecdote, Tlaib said she had made the comment to her son.

McCaw appears more than ready to move on from the Warriors , and had been negotiating with other teams as the season progressed. He'll also got a major boost in pay after signing a two-year, $1.44 million deal with the Warriors in 2016.

Tlaib is one of a handful of outspoken Democrats who have thrust impeachment proceedings against the president to the front of their agenda, despite a more measured tone from party brass.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hasn't ruled out impeachment but has called it a "divisive activity" that needs support from both parties.

Party elders also sought to calm talk of impeachment without criticizing Tlaib directly.

Trump says his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, which is a focus of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

"Mueller hasn't even produced his report yet!" said Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), referring to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

Helpful for what, though, I'm not sure.

"As a kid, I acted as my grandfather's translator at our caucuses, and he was the one who first sparked my interest in politics", Omar said on Twitter.

Speaking to the Jewish Journal, Rabbi Abraham Cooper of Simon Wiesenthal Center said there is now no country called "Palestine" and won't be until Palestinian leaders recognize Israel's right to exist. "I think it was highly disrespectful.to the United States of America".
