Rashida Tlaib Gave Every Freshman Congressman An Anti-Trump Welcome Gift

Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib revealed on Tuesday that she gave every freshman member of Congress a book on impeaching President Donald Trump when she arrived in Washington, D.C., for orientation week in November.

“It was such a great gift,” Tlaib told interviewer John Nichols on The Nation’s “Next Left” podcast. The episode was titled “There’s a Real Human Impact of Doing Nothing.”

“It was orientation week and all of a sudden I was getting [gifts],” she explained. “I think Speaker [of the House Nancy] Pelosi sent chocolates and every person that was in some sort of [inaudible] role was sending stuff to our hotel so we would come in and there was stuff right already in our hotel room.”

The Michigan congresswoman explained that after her chief of staff confirmed that she could give presents to her fellow freshman lawmakers she sent them each a copy of “The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump” by Ron Fein, John Bonifaz and Ben Clements. Nichols, who also wrote the introduction to the book, noted that he was “amused” by the gift.

Only hours after Tlaib was sworn into Congress in January, she was recorded vowing to go after Trump. Referring to the president, Tlaib told a crowd of left-wing supporters that she is going to go in and “impeach the motherf****r.” The profanity drew immediate criticism from both sides of the political aisle.

“I think that the key thing about what we heard from the congresswoman this week is the fact that she’s very focused on a politically motivated impeachment,” GOP Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming said of Tlaib’s comments at the time.

Despite the freshman Democrat’s repeated call for impeachment, Democratic leaders have largely shied away from moving forward with impeachment proceedings.

Tlaib’s office did not return The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    And she kisses her son with that mouth. How do these foreigners from countries that despise us get into our Congress? That has to be some illegal activity.

    A dollar to a donut, she’s an illegal alien.

  • JerryV says:

    What has she done to make America better? Has she worked with anyone to seek solutions to ANY issue?

    As far as I can see she has done NOTHING to earn her paycheck. Her full-time job is bashing President Trump and America itself. Contributing NOTHING but negativeness. AND we pay her for this!

    People had better wake up soon or we will lose our country to Muslims. I lived in a Muslim country for several years. They will pretend to be your friend while stabbing you in the back. Their plans are to overtake the world by silently invading our country, our schools, and our government. We need to get them out of office ASAP!
