'Impeach the motherf***er': Newly-elected Democratic congresswoman vows to impeach Donald Trump

Lesson one: Speaking with the bluntness of a candidate can produce swift and uncomfortable results.

During her campaign, Tlaib made clear that once in Congress she was going to push for impeachment against Trump.

- Michigan's newest congresswoman Rashida Tlaib sworn in Thursday in the nation's capital, swearing in a different way at a rally Thursday night.

It was a striking coda to the Democrats' heady ascendance to the House majority Thursday, sparking unusually public corrections from House veterans.

"I didn't change or try to run away from being Arabia, being a Muslima, being Palestinian", she said, gendering the layers of her identity - Arab, Muslim, Palestinian - to mirror the grammar of the adjectives in Arabic. His committee would be the one to begin impeachment proceedings.

Newcomers routinely stumble as they learn how things are done on Capitol Hill.

In interviews with Politico, several of Tlaib's fellow Democrats were critical as well. By rebuking one, the more seasoned Democrats were effectively warning the others.

"I don't really like that kind of language, but more to the point, I disagree with what she said. Bullies don't win, '" Tlaib said.

McCarthy has been calling for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to condemn Tlaib.

"The Democrats see the Mueller operation as a vehicle for the impeachment of President [Trump], and I guarantee you that the Mueller operation sees itself as a vehicle for the impeachment of President Trump, too", Tom Fitton, president of the government watchdog Judicial Watch wrote on Twitter.

But Tlaib's enthusiastic will likely rankle conservatives because of her use of profanity.

A spokesman said in a statement that Tlaib was elected to shake up Washington and "absolutely" believes Trump should be impeached.

"But I don't think it's any worse than what the president has said". "This is the difference with this new Congress".

But she has never hidden who she is, she said.

To start, obviously, there are exactly zero of [Tlaib's] supporters who will be upset that she used harsh language to describe plans to go after Trump. "She yielded to that temptation". I assume she's new.

A newly-elected Democratic congresswoman has vowed to impeach President Donald Trump in an expletive-laced speech which has provoked outrage among Republicans. "That is not the body of what we serve in, and that action should not stand". The media tried to ask her questions today about the remarks, she declined.

Trump, who routinely slings verbal attacks at his critics, said: "I thought her comments were disgraceful" and "disrespectful" to the United States.
