Speaking to reporters from her congressional office, Tlaib exclaimed, “We saw record turnout in an election year, where people wanted to elect a jury that would begin the impeachment proceedings to (sic) Donald Trump,” The Hill reported.
“We want to work on these economic issues, racial injustice issues and everything. But guess what? There is a wall there, and a constitutional crisis that is not going to [let us] do our jobs as American Congress members to push a lot of these agendas forward.”
Referring to her fellow freshman Democrats, Tlaib continued, “This is the largest class since Watergate. This a class — a diverse class — that comes…with a sense of urgency to act. To act to hold corporations accountable; to act in holding President Trump accountable; to act to really try to see real reforms even within our congressional process. This is an emergency for all of us.”
According to WXYZ-TV, Tlaib added, “Later on this month, I will be joining folks and advocates across the country to file the impeachment resolution to start the impeachment proceedings.” . . .
“Remember, this is setting a precedent. If we don’t hold impeachment proceedings today, start them today and hold him accountable to following the United States Constitution — think about that, this is not going to be the last CEO that runs for president of the United States,” she said at her news conference.
