Politico is reporting that Democrats are furious over Rashid Tlaib’s comment on impeachment, but not because of the language she used. She exposed their dirty little secret and that could come back to bite them on the butt.
Democrats have been downplaying the investigations and impeachment against President Trump, not because they don’t intend to do either but because they don’t want voters to see their goals for what they really are. They even convinced Maxine Waters to tone it down a lot.
But, now Tlaib has declared impeachment the goal even though he has not committed any impeachable offense and that makes it purely political.
Dems livid after Tlaib vows to ‘impeach the motherf—er’
House Democrats are furious that an incoming freshman’s expletive-riddled statement about impeaching Donald Trump has suddenly upended their carefully crafted rhetoric on their plans to take on the president.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats have long argued that impeachment is a last resort that would come at the end of exhaustive oversight and investigations. But on the second day of the new Congress, the news was jammed with talk of Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who told a crowd of progressive activists Thursday night that “we’re gonna impeach the motherf—er.”…
“Mueller hasn’t even produced his report yet!” said Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), referring to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe. “People should cool their jets a little bit, let the prosecutors do their job and finish the investigation.”
“Inappropriate,” added Rep. Jim Costa (D-Calif.). “As elected officials I think we should be expected to set a high bar… It’s not helpful.”
Even Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), who introduced an impeachment resolution earlier this week, was shocked. His eyes bulged in disbelief when a reporter read him Tlaib’s comments and he was speechless for several seconds.
