Israel Relabeled As 'Palestine' On Rashida Tlaib's Map

The congresswoman defended her words on Twitter Friday morning, saying, "I will always speak truth to power".

"And when your son looks at you and says mama, look you won, bullies don't win, I said baby they don't because we're going to go in there and we're going to impeach the mother fucker".

"We already have overwhelming evidence that the president has committed impeachable offences", she said.

Less than two years later, a Palestinian-American woman walked into the USA capitol building in Washington as a member of Congress, wearing a Palestinian thobe. Rashida Tlaib said of President Donald Trump Thursday night.

Tlaib also called for Trump to be impeached in a more carefully worded opinion piece published in the Detroit Free Press, calling him "a direct and serious threat to our country".

Keeping in-step with the "Palestine" sticky note, Tlaib had Women's March leader and Shariah law supporter Linda Sarsour in attendance at her swearing-in ceremony Thursday.

Omar's history wins also included being Minnesota's first Somali-American legislator and the first woman of color elected to Congress from the state.

Tokyo auto attack: Van slams into New Year's revelers, injuring 8 people
A auto is inspected by police after it injured several pedestrians on Takeshita Street in Tokyo , early Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019. Eight people were injured, one seriously, by the attacker who struck in the Harajuku fashion district shortly after midnight.

Even if the House advances any articles of impeachment, a two-thirds-majority vote to convict Trump in the Republican-controlled Senate and remove him from office would seem out of the question, barring astonishing new revelations.

The impeachment remark was one of many such indicators from House Democrats, including newly elevated Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who, despite previous comments downplaying the possibility of partisan impeachment efforts, refused on Thursday to rule it out.

If he were Jeff Flake or some other vocal anti-Trumper, he might at least claim consistency: "I've said over and over that both parties need to set an example in how they conduct themselves", etc.

Trump says his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, which is a focus of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Tlaib is one of a handful of outspoken Democrats who have thrust impeachment proceedings against the president to the front of their agenda, despite a more measured tone from party brass.

"I just wonder what this says about decorum in this new era of divided government and the new Congress?" "It doesn't reflect the caucus, and I'm sure upon reflection, she might choose other words to describe her feelings".

She said that was in part a "generational" difference, but also called out Trump for language he has used. "I'm proud of you", he said.
