Impeachment Resolution Introduced by Controversial Freshman Congresswoman

This could be the stunt that cements her status as a ‘one-term’ congresswoman.

As we await the full and final release of information from the Mueller report, a schism seems to be developing within Congress on the subject.

The report, which has been handed over to the Department of Justice, and whose findings were summarized in a 4-page letter by Attorney General Bill Barr, has been a subject of hot debate.  With an alleged mass of over 300 pages making up the Mueller report itself, a number of prominent politicians have called the Barr summary inadequate, and, along with the President. have expressed their desires to make the entire report available to Congress and the public.

On the content of the report known thus far, the President feels vindicated, without a doubt.  His opponents, however, are split, with one of Congress’ most controversial characters even calling for his impeachment against the wishes of her own party leaders.

Rep. Tlaib, D-Mich., submitted the resolution which calls on the House Judiciary Committee to probe whether or not the president committed any offenses that rise to the level of impeachment.

The resolution’s text states it is, “Inquiring whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America.”

The controversial freshman’s measure included the support of just one other Democrat, Texas Rep. Al Green.

Democratic Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi has frequently and consistently pushed back against the idea of impeaching the President, at one point even attempting to claim that “he’s not worth it”.
