Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), a freshman Congresswoman and proud Palestinian-American Muslim, was sworn in today on a Quran.
Tlaib made headlines when she wrapped herself in a Palestinian flag after winning a congressional seat in Michigan’s 13 District. Rashida Tlaib will fill the seat vacated by the disgraced Democrat Congressman, John Conyers, the longest running member of the House before he was quietly run out of DC amidst several sexual assault allegations against him. While Conyers was a sitting Congressman, his wife, Monica Conyers served a 3-year-term in prison for bribery while she was serving as a Detroit City Congresswoman. Former Congressman John Conyers (D) was hoping that his son would fill his seat, but when John Conyers III came up 1,000 signatures short on his petition to get his name on the primary ballot, Tlaib saw an opening in a weak US Congressional race and capitalized on it.
Earlier today, Hannah Allam, a Muslim reporter for Buzzfeed posted these images of Tlaib to her Twitter account.
In one of the images below, the pro-Palestine lawmaker can be seen smiling, as she poses with the pro-Sharia, anti-semite activist, Linda Sarsour. Sarsour was recently in the news when the Women’s March that was supposed to take place in New Orleans last week was canceled, in part because of Linda Sarsour’s participation. Sarsour’s ties to anti-Semite, hate-preacher Louis Farrakhan played a role in the decision of the organizers to cancel, after several of their top participants were widely criticized for their anti-semitic behavior.

Allam also posted an image of a map that is allegedly hanging in Tlaib’s new congressional office with a sticky note that reads, “Palestine” with an arrow pointing next to a mass of land next to Israel.
For anyone who questioned the motives of the newly elected Muslim congresswoman from Detroit, who wrapped herself in the Palestinian flag after she was elected, you don’t have to look too hard to find her motivation.

Democrats are already rallying behind the idea of replacing the Quran with the Bible in swearing in newly elected political officials. This Twitter user says he doesn’t have a problem with Tlaib being sworn in on the Quran, because “Clearly the Bible doesn’t work–look at Trump!”

Tlaib doesn’t waste any time in calling for the impeachment of President Trump. In a Detroit Free Press op-ed that published today, titled: “Now is the time to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump” , Tlaib claims that Congress doesn’t need to wait for the outcome of Mueller’s investigation to determine President Trump is guilty of colluding with the Russians to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Tlaib suggests that the House of Representatives needs to move now with an inquiry to find out if Trump is gulity of “high crimes and misdemeanors” against the state.
President Donald Trump is a direct and serious threat to our country. On an almost daily basis, he attacks our Constitution, our democracy, the rule of law and the people who are in this country. His conduct has created a constitutional crisis that we must confront now
Whether the president was directly involved in a conspiracy with the Russian government to interfere with the 2016 election remains the subject of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. But we do not need to wait on the outcome of that criminal investigation before moving forward now with an inquiry in the U.S. House of Representatives on whether the president has committed impeachable “high crimes and misdemeanors” against the state: abuse of power and abuse of the public trust. Each passing day brings new damage to the countless people hurt by this lawless president’s actions. We cannot undo the trauma that he is causing to our people, and this nation. Those most vulnerable to his administration’s cruelty are counting on us to act—act to remove the president and put this country on a path to true justice.
The Gateway Pundit reports that only hours after being sworn in, Tlaib’s wish has already come true, as a Democrat Congressman from California has already introduced articles of impeachment agianst President Trump.
Congressman Brad Sherman, D-Sherman Oaks, announced Thursday that he and another congressman have reintroduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
Fellow Democrat Congressman Al Green of Texas co-sponsored the reintroduced articles of impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanors.
The articles are based on Article 1, dealing with “Obstruction of Justice,” which was passed by the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote on July 27, 1974, regarding Richard M. Nixon, according to a press release from Sherman’s office.
“I understand that a majority of our Democratic Caucus will want to wait until Special Counsel Robert Mueller completes his report, which I would hope will be issued in the next two to three months,” Brad Sherman said.
