On Tuesday, far-left Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib reacted to former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial lawyers using video of her calling on Congress to “impeach the motherf***er” in regards to Trump.
Tlaib’s comments were originally made in 2019 before the January 6 attack on Capitol Hill. The ‘Squad’ member told MNSBC’s Chris Hayes she “was right” to make her comments.
Watch Tlaib’s interview below.
Tlaib Doubles Down On ‘Impeach The Motherf***er’
“I mean, I was right,” Tlaib told Hayes on his MSNBC program “All In.”
“This is a person that’s been lawless,” Tlaib added. “Not only that, it’s a crooked billionaire running his businesses out of the White House.”
Tlaib didn’t expand on her salacious claim that President Trump had done anything “crooked” regarding his businesses, and host Hayes didn’t ask.
“He was absolutely committing impeachable offenses,” she added.
Tlaib then turned her attention to the current impeachment trial.
“You know, this primary impeachment that you see before the Senate right now to convict him is for the violence on January 6, but for many of us, especially here in my district, we have saw [sic] that it was extremely corrupted that they were putting the Trump Organization first,” she said.

‘We Knew What He Was About, And We Called Him Out On It From Day One’
Tlaib continued, “They were putting the for-profit organization, his businesses, before the people’s business and making sure that, again, folks, we’re staying at the Trump Hotel to do all this.”
“And again, many of us didn’t wait for him to bribe a foreign government, nor did we wait in the 13th congressional district for a white supremacy attack on our capital,” the far left Democrat added.
“We knew what he was about, and we called him out on it from day one,” she insisted.
#ICYMI: The residents of #13thDistrictStrong deserve nothing less than holding Trump accountable for the violence he caused on Jan 6 and the harm and pain he caused in trying to jeopardize our democracy.

Tlaib vowed Democrats are “not going to hold back” when it comes to Trump and would definitely hold the former president “accountable.”
“We need to use every resource possible and convict this president, again, for the violence that he caused,” Tlaib finished.
Tlaib Accuses Trump Of Trying To Disenfranchise Black Voters
Tlaib also doubled down on the Democrat strategy of portraying the violence at the Capitol as “white supremacy.”
Commenting on statements made by impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin, who had argued that democracy was personal, Tlaib agreed.
“It is. Chris, from my district alone, they were intentionally trying to throw out black votes right here in Detroit. And so for us it was extremely personal, that they were trying to use white supremacist rhetoric, trying to use that racist tone, and these conspiracy theories that led to the violence of January 6th.”
Tlaib got no pushback from Hayes on her claim, without evidence, that the Trump campaign team was “intentionally trying to throw out black votes.”
