New Rep. Tells Cheering Crowd: 'We're Going To Impeach The Motherf*cker'

Tlaib's comment drew a huge round of applause from the MoveOn crowd, and the congresswomen doubled down on her call for impeaching Trump the following day when she tweeted, "I will always speak truth to power".

Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports.

"How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time, done nothing wrong (no Collusion with Russian Federation, it was the Dems that Colluded), had the most successful first two years of any president, and is the most popular Republican in party history 93%?" he wrote on Twitter.

Democrats have also said they plan to prohibit members of Congress from settling sexual harassment lawsuits by using public money, as has been done in the past.

So much for Hillary Clinton's promise past year that "civility can start again" after Democrats take the House and/or Senate.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) said members were "aghast" at Tlaib, lamenting "a fever" among some colleagues to impeach Trump.

'I probably have a generational reaction to it, ' she said, adding: 'I'm not in the censorship business.

Tlaib, the first Palestinian woman in Congress, celebrated her swearing-in at a bash on Thursday. Pelosi is 78, while Tlaib is 42.

Also on Thursday, her children made headlines for their enthusiasm during the swearing in ceremony, performing "dab" dances as part of the celebration as Nancy Pelosi was winning a return to the Speakership.

Her profanity in service to impeachment will be used as Exhibit A in the Republican messaging about "Trump Derangement Syndrome" if and when Dems get serious about trying to oust him.

On impeachment, Ms Pelosi has been cautious, saying Democrats must "wait and see" what happens with special counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

In a press conference following his meeting with congressional leaders from both parties, Trump says he brought up impeachment - a topic that is swirling in Washington - with Pelosi just a day after Democrats took control of the House.

Tlaib, however, has argued for impeachment proceedings to begin immediately. Her long list of Trump's alleged crimes includes "ordering the cruel and unconstitutional imprisonment of children and their families at the southern border", obstructing justice, and advocating illegal violence.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that calling President Trump a "motherf-" is rhetorically no different than his day-to-day gripes about Democrats. The Virginia Democrat said she was elected because she talked about preserving health care.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Ms Pelosi ought to make clear to Ms Tlaib that such language is unacceptable.

Democrats who support impeachment have argued that Mr Trump obstructed justice by firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and that hush payments to at least two women made by his personal attorney during the presidential race violated campaign finance laws.

In a three-way referendum between May's deal, no deal and remain, just 23% would back the prime minister. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn says the UK Government should be "ashamed" for delaying a vote on Brexit.
