Rep. Rashida Tlaib just can’t let go. Despite the fact that investigations into President Trump have largely turned up nothing, Tlaib has stated she will file impeachment resolutions against Trump by the end of the month.
“We saw record turnout in an election year, where people wanted to elect a jury that would begin the impeachment proceedings to (sic) Donald Trump,” Tlaib told reporters gathered outside her office.
“We want to work on these economic issues, racial injustice issues and everything. But guess what? There is a wall there, and a constitutional crisis that is not going to [let us] do our jobs as American Congress members to push a lot of these agendas forward.”
Tlaib went on to praise her “class” of fellow Democrats, “This is the largest class since Watergate. This a class — a diverse class — that comes…with a sense of urgency to act. To act to hold corporations accountable; to act in holding President Trump accountable; to act to really try to see real reforms even within our congressional process. This is an emergency for all of us.”
It was after these statements that WXYZ-TV reports Tlaib adding, “Later on this month, I will be joining folks and advocates across the country to file the impeachment resolution to start the impeachment proceedings.”
Tlaib has been fixated on hounding Trump since Congress resumed in January, when she called the president a “motherf***er.”
Tlaib claimed that it was setting an example that drov her, not how her political career is in flames as she continues to attack Trump.
“Remember, this is setting a precedent. If we don’t hold impeachment proceedings today, start them today and hold him accountable to following the United States Constitution — think about that, this is not going to be the last CEO that runs for president of the United States,” she said.
“This is not going to be the last person that tries to get away with this,” Tlaib continued. “And what does that say about the most powerful, most important body, most important position in the world?”
This will be a moment to remember when it’s Tlaib that’s headed for the door as Trump begin his second term.
