Day One: Dem Congresswoman Calls To Impeach President Trump


Why that's amazing. On the same day new House Speaker Pelosi called for bipartisanship, reaching across the aisle and unity, incoming congresswoman Tlaib from Michigan said, we can't wait around for Mueller when it comes to impeaching Donald Trump

Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) called to impeach President Trump on her first day in Congress in an op-ed on Thursday in the Detroit Free Press titled "Now is the time to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump."

Tlaib in the article, co-written by Trump impeachment advocate John Bonifaz, drew a distinction between "the power of a criminal prosecution" and "the impeachment power."


"While Congress has the impeachment power to prevent future harm to our government, prosecutors have the power to seek punishment for those who commit crimes," Tlaib and Bonifaz wrote.

"Those who say we must wait for Special Counsel Mueller to complete his criminal investigation before Congress can start any impeachment proceedings ignore this crucial distinction," the article continues.
