Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib doesn’t want President Trump in office and has no issues with letting people know.
During a speech on Thursday night, the representative spoke to supporters and ended her comments with a promise of impeachment.
“People love you and you win,” said Tlaib. “And when your son looks at you and says, ‘Momma, look you won. Bullies don’t win.’ And I said, ‘Baby, they don’t, because we’re gonna go in there and we’re gonna impeach the motherf***er.’”

“President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country,” Tlaib wrote. “Each passing day brings more pain for the people most directly hurt by this president, and these are days we simply cannot get back. The time for impeachment proceedings is now.”
While she listed impeachable offenses, Tlaib wrote in very vague terms how Trump could be found guilty. Some fellow Democrats share her opinion, but others are requesting to wait, saying that more information needs to be gathered in order for the impeachment process to start.
