Nothing like starting out a Congressional career by making a big splash. That’s exactly what one newly minted Congresscritter from Michigan did on Thursday.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — who was sworn in earlier Thursday — is coming out of the gate swinging at President Donald Trump.
Speaking to a crowd at a reception held by the progressive group MoveOn near Capitol Hill on Thursday night, the new Congresswoman made a sharply worded pledge
Tlaib quoted her son telling her, “Mama, look, you won. Bullies don’t win.” And then she said, “’Baby, they don’t.’ Because we’re gonna go in there, we’re gonna impeach the motherfucker.”
We the People have been hearing this pledge for two years now and not once has the party of the donkeys bothered to put forth proof of a crime worthy of President Trump’s removal from office.
Of course, usually, the terminology does not invoke Elizabethan terms for carnal pleasure either.
One thing that is needed for a successful impeachment that does not cause civil war is popularity with the people. The Democrats have a little problem with that as job creation under President Trump continues to rise, and unemployment, one of the key issues Americans watch, is dropping. Also at issue is the government shutdown over the border wall, or more accurately barrier, that the Democrats are refusing to fund even as it is going up under the aegis of the Army Corps of Engineers.
House Speaker returned, Nancy Pelosi understands this, and while she has not taken impeachment off the table as a tactic to use against the Trump Administration, she is not pushing it as one, either, pinning hopes on Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and any infraction his investigation might find against Trump during the 2016 election, charges that so far have proven to be unfounded, groundless and will not produce the results the Democrats desire.
