Rashida Tlaib's comment about Trump controversial among Detroiters

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

Rashida Tlaib was speaking at an event in MI on Thursday afternoon when she made her statement about the president. Pelosi is 78, while Tlaib is 42.

In interviews with Politico, several of Tlaib's fellow Democrats were critical as well.

While Democratic leadership isn't likely to consider impeachment until Mueller's investigation is finished, the episode shows that they will face mounting pressure from rank-and-file members to act.

Pelosi said that she has a "generational" reaction to that language and wouldn't use it, but that she won't censor her colleagues.

The op-ed, like Tlaib's celebratory speech, demands Trump's impeachment.

Democrats' new majority in the House of Representatives has marked a dramatic power shift on Capitol Hill less than two years before the Republican president's re-election bid, as Democrats intend to put a check on Trump's turbulent White House.

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.

Amazingly enough, in full context, Tlaib was recalling a conversation she had with her son. "She ran and won by making this very clear to the voters in her district", McCampbell said.

Garbage, faeces take toll on USA national parks amid shutdown
Some walking trails that are normally covered in sand have also become compressed and icy, making travel hazardous. Officials have suggested that visitors use restrooms in surrounding communities before entering national parks.

Trump said that Pelosi assured him during the meeting that "we're not looking to impeach you", and that he replied "that's good, Nancy, that's good".

Tlaib said at an event hours after she was sworn in that lawmakers will work to impeach Trump, and used a vulgarity to describe him.

As a clip of Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib's animated comments circulated widely on social media, Trump tartly dismissed the threat of impeachment on Twitter on Friday.

"I certainly think it a valid question and it's one that a lot of voters were interested in having in the run-up to the election", Ocasio-Coretz said.

Rep. Jim Costa, a California Democrat, said: "It's inappropriate".

"I think that the office of the presidency should be treated with respect", he said.

Tlaib and Democrat Ilhan Omar of Minnesota became the first Muslim women in congress on Thursday, with the opening of the 116th congress amid a two-week long partial government shutdown.

"I think it's a forgivable sin, an outburst of exuberance with her and her supporters, and I think we all need to move on", he said.
