Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., made headlines in January for saying about the president that "we're going to impeach this mother***er" at a MoveOn event in Washington, D.C. Rep. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., first introduced articles of impeachment against Trump for obstruction of justice in July 2017.

"While legally he ought to be impeached, he can not be removed until we change public opinion".
