Trump Tweets That Democrats Want to Impeach Him For Being 'Too Successful'

Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib Will be Sworn in Using Thomas Jefferson's Quran

Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib is one of the first two Muslim women voted into Congress and made Trump's impeachment central to her campaign. She has been vocal about her support of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel. "She added the hashtag, ".unapologeticallyMe".

Speaking to reporters in the Rose Garden, Trump said Friday that he thought Tlaib's comments were "disgraceful".

Still, it will be hard for Pelosi to quiet some on her left flank who see their new majority as a direct challenge to Trump. "Impeachment is a very divisive approach to take and we shouldn't take it ... without the facts", she told host Joy Reid later in the interview, set to air Friday at 10 p.m. ET.

Worse, Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn't even dare denounce Tlaib's language, merely saying she wouldn't use it and suggesting that the Michigan Democrat's words were "nothing worse than what the president has said".

"How do you impeach a president who has won perhaps the greatest election of all time?" Rep. Brad Sherman of California introduced articles of impeachment on the first day of the new Congress Thursday.

Republicans seized on Tlaib's remarks to criticize Democrats for playing politics with impeachment.

Prices rise as the minimum wage increases in several states
In Arkansas and Missouri, voters this fall approved ballot initiatives raising the minimum wage after state legislators did not. Up until a few decades ago, many economists anxious that raising the minimum wage would lead to employers hiring fewer workers.

Pelosi said Thursday that she wouldn't rule out impeachment or the indictment of the president, but also said such actions would not benefit the country.

There has been some discussion in Trump's orbit about how to deal with a possible impeachment effort.

But Pelosi was more critical of the talk of impeachment, saying that it consolidated the president's base and disclaiming, "That is not the position of the House Democratic Caucus". "That's going to be a test for her and her Speakership".

A similar dynamic (righty House Republicans demanding the impossible in the face of a Democratic president and Senate) drove then-Speaker John Boehner into retirement a few years back. House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said the comments were "inappropriate" and go against efforts to reclaim civility.

"I certainly think it a valid question and it's one that a lot of voters were interested in having in the run-up to the election", Ocasio-Coretz said. "People love you and you win", she said. Wisconsin Rep. Ron Kind said.
