Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib Tells Crowd "We Will Impeach the Motherf-er.'"

House Republicans scrambling to hire lawyers to fight off potential Trump impeachment report

"I'm not going to tell anyone else what to do, but certainly, I think, it would behoove all of us to really be working for the people who need" Congress' help.

The president commented on the news during a Rose Garden event at the White House where he took questions.

In an essay for Elle published on Thursday, Tlaib wrote that she chose to wear a thobe to bring "an unapologetic display of the fabric of the people in this country".

In a subsequent tweet, she added: "This is not just about Donald Trump".

The video of Tlaib's comments quickly went viral and led to a response from the president.

Minnesota voters elected Ilhan Omar and MI voters elected Tlaib.

"We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason", she said.

Speaking to a crowd at an event sponsored by the progressive group MoveOn, Tlaib recalled the moment she won her election in November.

"When your son looks at you and says, 'Mama, look, you won".

RNC Chair Jabs Mitt Romney - Her Uncle - For Anti-Trump Op-Ed
Although Trump endorsed Romney in the 2012 presidential campaign, the relationship took a more bitter direction in 2016. In his op-ed, Romney said President Trump's character falls short of what is required of a president.

Placing her hand on a Quran that once belonged to Thomas Jefferson, Tlaib was sworn in earlier Thursday.

Ms Tlaib is one of the first two Muslim women voted into Congress and made Mr Trump's impeachment central to her campaign.

One conservative commentator called Tlaib "an idiot looking for attention" while another accused her of fueling political hatred, something that Democrats have blamed Republicans for. "Because we're going to go in there and we're going to impeach the m****". On top of Israel was a post-it note that said "Palestine".

Tlaib, 42, is the Detroit-born daughter of Palestinian immigrants who hailed from the West Bank village of Beit Ur al-Foqa, near Ramallah.

According to the Free-Press, Tlaib used George Sale's 1734 translation of the Koran into English, which is a two-volume work that resides in the Library of Congress.

"I identify with her because I'm capable of saying something like that off the top of my head at a rally", she said.

During her swearing in, Tlaib wore a Palestinian gown called a thobe.

It would take an bad lot of disgraceful behavior to fill the shoes of former Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., the long-serving octogenarian congressman who resigned in 2017 amid shocking sexual harassment and misconduct allegations.
