For the next two weeks, members of Congress will be spending time in their districts where many of them will address the concerns of their constituents. Instead of addressing the concerns of her constituents, the radical freshman Democrat lawmaker, Rashida Tlaib spent her time explaining to her voters how Democrats are working to find a way to arrest Trump officials.
Rep.Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) made news when her first act as a United States Congresswoman was recorded on video, only hours after her swearing-in ceremony. With a microphone in her hand, the radical freshman lawmaker shared a despicable story with a group of her supporters about how she promised her young son that one of her first acts as a United States Congresswoman would be to “Impeach the motherf**ker!” Tlaib, of course, was referring to her commitment to impeaching the President of the United States.
Yesterday, the radical freshman doubled down on her commitment to using her position as a United States Congresswoman to punish her political enemies. Tlaib ignored the subject of historically low unemployment numbers for minorities, and instead, talked about how Democratic lawmakers are exploring how to arrest White House officials who do not comply with congressional subpoenas.
Washington Free Beacon reports – Tlaib told Detroit constituents at her “Congress, Coffee, and Conversation” event on Tuesday that lawmakers are focused on how best to take cabinet members into custody. “This is the first time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” she said. “So they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do we hold them?”
An America Rising PAC tracker caught Tlaib on video speculating what could happen to Trump administration officials held in contempt of Congress. The congresswoman pointed to Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Attorney General William Barr, who were both held in criminal contempt of Congress for defying congressional subpoenas.
The House of Representatives voted to ask the Justice Department to prosecute Barr and Ross by a margin of 230 to 198. It was the second time in U.S. history a sitting cabinet member was held in criminal contempt of Congress. The first was former attorney general Eric Holder, whom the Republican-controlled House held in contempt in 2012 after Holder refused to turn over documents pertaining to the Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal.
