- Michigan's newest congresswoman Rashida Tlaib sworn in Thursday in the nation's capital, swearing in a different way at a rally Thursday night.
"The congresswoman absolutely believes he needs to be impeached".
She said she was elected because she talked about preserving health care.
"That is not the position of the House Democratic caucus", Pelosi said on MSNBC of Tlaib's comments. Bullies don't win.' And I said, 'Baby, they don't.
The question of beginning impeachment proceedings in the Congress has taken on renewed urgency after Democrats took control of the House of Representatives following their success in the midterm elections.
Since Republicans refused to hold hearings on that measure, H.Res. 438, and all legislation introduced last session but not enacted into law was terminated on Wednesday, Sherman said in a statement: "Accordingly, it's necessary and appropriate to reintroduce the Articles of Impeachment". She also says she supports a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and has called for cutting U.S. aid to the country.
Responding to Tlaib's comments, Nadler said on CNN, "I don't really like that language".
Newly elected Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wouldn't have used "that language".
"Republican hypocrisy at its finest: saying that Trump admitting to sexual assault on tape is just 'locker room talk, ' but scandalizing themselves into faux-outrage when my sis says a curse word in a bar", she told her 2 million Twitter followers.
"I got your back", she added in a tweet to Tlaib, "the Bronx and Detroit ride together". That's why it is important to protect the Mueller investigation and that's why it's important to do our own inquiry. We have to get the facts.
Though the president has vigorously dismissed any such talk publicly, he has reportedly grown anxious in recent months about being impeached. "Maybe it won't. It is much too early".
The president, who has long fashioned himself as the ultimate victor, told the confidant that he anxious that impeachment, even if he retained office, would be a stain on his legacy.
Drew Hammill, a Pelosi spokesman, subsequently tweeted that "Trump brought up impeachment" in his opening comments at the meeting.
"I think it's a forgivable sin, an outburst of exuberance with her and her supporters, and I think we all need to move on", he said. I wouldn't use that language. I also love Eric Holder's (obviously metaphoric) idea that "When they go low, we kick them". Nobody, not the President, not anybody else, can be above the law. And secondly, how important were they? "Do they rise to the gravity where you should undertake an impeachment?"
Republicans seized on Tlaib's remarks to criticize Democrats for playing politics with impeachment. And she knows it.
Ms Tlaib, 42, is one in a cadre of ebullient, media-savvy rising stars - the self-described "radical" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is another - who aim to shake up Washington's status quo. We'll see how he will deal with the speaker of the House.
For the moment, talk of these grave legal matters is still hypothetical.
As I wrote then, you can't be too anti-Trump because there is nobody on the fence about him.
Congress was re-opened on Thursday amid a government shutdown in the US.
