Rashida Tlaib made this insane mistake that she instantly regretted

Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib is one of the most controversial Democrats in Congress.

Tlaib made no bones about wanting to impeach Donald Trump.

But now Tlaib made one insane mistake that she instantly regretted.

When the new Congress was sworn in, Tlaib appeared at an event where she profanely called for Donald Trump’s impeachment.

Now she is making good on her threat.

Fox News reports:

Freshman Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib appeared to clash with party leadership on Wednesday after joining protesters to say she’d introduce a resolution this month urging the Judiciary Committee to move forward with impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Tlaib, D-Mich., joined protesters on Capitol Hill to described what she called an “emergency” conveyed to her by her constituents.

“We want to be able to work on these economic justice issues, racial justice issues and everything. But guess what? There is a wall there, and a constitutional crisis that is not going to be able to have us be able to do our jobs as American Congress members to push a lot of these agendas forward.”

Democrat leaders know they have a problem on their hands.

Polls show impeachment is not popular.

But it’s what their base demands.

If Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats go along, they will cut off their nose to spite their face.

A partisan impeachment would be viewed as a coup.

And it could spur Republican turnout to record levels in 2020, which would have the effect of re-electing Donald Trump.

But she ignored those calls, claiming the midterm elections proved the American people want Congress to remove the President from office.

Fox News also reports:

Tlaib was pressed by reporters over Democratic leadership’s message that unfounded calls for impeachment could spell trouble for the party in 2020.

“This last election was a calling, I mean we saw record turnout in an election year where people wanted to elect the jury that would begin the impeachment proceedings to Donald Trump.”
