Rep. Rashida Tlaib, one of the first Democrats in Congress who called for the removal of President Donald Trump, said on Sunday that more Democrats are on their way. to a consensus on such proceedings against the president.
& # 39; That's where it goes. It will demand that. That's it already, & # 39; she said on NBC & # 39; s & # 39; Meet the Press & # 39 ;.
& # 39; We cannot do our job if we do not hold him responsible, & # 39; she said.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib said that more Democrats are on the road & # 39; to a consensus that President Donald Trump should be accused
She was one of the first members of Congress who said that President Donald Trump should be accused
& # 39; This is not about the 2020 election, & # 39; she remarked. & # 39; It's about doing what is now for our country. This is going to be a precedent that we set if we don't hold this president responsible for the rule of law and the US constitution. & # 39;
Tlaib, after taking the oath in January, vowed that Democratic House Leadership & # 39; mother f *** er & # 39; accuse – in a reference to Trump.
She has defeated the charge against the accusation while Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to stop that tide among her democratic legislators.
The Michigan Democrat opposed an important argument from Pelosi, who instructed her party to first have the six house committees investigating Trump's companies, tax returns, administration and actions in the 2016 elections complete their work.
But Tlaib argued the traditional method of congress review – subpoenas and committee hearings – does not work.
& # 39; The traditional process of Congress supervision does not work & she said.
Trump fought subpoenas for his business data, his taxes and for his officials, both current and former, to testify.
Although two court rulings were in favor of the Democrats last week. Trump is expected to appeal.
A federal judge in New York on Wednesday refused to block summons from House Democrats for Deutsche Bank's Trump financial data and Capital One. Earlier in the week, a Washington D.C. judge ruled that Trump & # 39; s former accounting firm Mazars had to abide by a summons from the Democrats.
Cases turned upside down for Democrats last week when White House former McGahn adviser refused, at the request of the White House, to follow a summons for his testimony on Capitol Hill about the investigation in Russia and his testimony as described in Mueller's report.
His movement angered the Democrats and led Pelosi to call for a special party gathering to contain the charges against oppression.
While she has refused the deposition calls – for now – in another battle between her and Trump, the relationship between the executive and the legislature saw a new low point.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has tried to stop the disapproving tide in her party
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a loyal Pelosi ally, also appeared on & # 39; Meet the Press & # 39; to argue for waiting for the home investigation into President Trump
Rep. Liz Cheney, a member of the Republican House leadership, said Pelosi is losing her hold on her party
Tlaib, who took office after the 2016 election, who saw Democrats re-taking control of the House of Representatives, said this was a sign that the public was on their side.
& # 39; The majority of countries in this country saw an enormous historical turnout of people coming to vote for the first time. And I feel that in many ways it is a referendum to stand up against a bully, against a president who undermines the American constitution every day, & she said.
Republicans from Congress have also attacked.
& # 39; What I see every day is a Parliament spokesperson who is increasingly losing control of her conference & # 39 ;, said Rep. Liz Cheney, a member of the leadership of the Republican House, on Sunday at ABC & # 39; s & # 39; This Week. & # 39;
And the Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, a good ally of President Trump, warned Pelosi that she would commit & # 39; political suicide & # 39; when she started a complaint against the president.
& # 39; She knows that deposition would be a political suicide because there is no reason to accuse the president, & # 39; Graham said on & # 39; Fox News Sunday. & # 39;
But one of Pelosi's most loyal allies was also looking forward to it.
& # 39; Democrats can sing and dance at the same time, just like Beyoncé, & # 39; said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a member of the Democratic leader organization, against NBC & # 39; s & # 39; Meet the Press & # 39 ;.
& # 39; We are not working for Donald Trump. We work for the American people. We have a constitutional responsibility to serve as a control and balance for a possibly out of control executive. But we will not reach too far. We will not over-investigate, we will not politicize that responsibility too much. We will continue as Speaker Pelosi explained eloquently, methodically yet aggressively to come to the truth, & he said.
