Rashida Tlaib and her fellow “Squad” members Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar all entered Congress on a mission to impeach Donald Trump.
Tlaib and her fellow America-hating socialists now believe they are on the cusp of victory.
And Rashida Tlaib issued this ultimatum to Trump that will leave you speechless.
Led by Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi, Democrats in the House of Representatives are staging a coup to overthrow the duly elected President of the United States.
One front in their war on the Trump administration is firing off a barrage of subpoenas to harass various Trump officials.
The President and his lawyers responded that until the Democrats stage a vote to open an official impeachment inquiry, they will not cooperate.
Democrats conducted the initial stages of the fake impeachment inquiry in secret with closed-door hearings and no transparency.
Democrats are now reassessing their positions and figuring out how they want to proceed.
Michigan Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib delivered a sneak peek of the Democrats’ possible strategy in an interview with Deadline Detroit.
Tlaib told Deadline Detroit that Democrats were considering jailing Trump officials that defied Democrats’ subpoenas.
Deadline Detroit exclusively reports:
But Rashida Tlaib – a first-term representative from Detroit – said Saturday that the Democratic caucus has discussed the possibility in conversations during the current Congressional recess.
“If they were to detain someone, where would they go and have them detained so that they can comply with the subpoenas?” Tlaib said in an interview Saturday with Deadline Detroit at United Auto Works Local 600 in Detroit.
“There have been actual serious conversations about what the logistics would look like . . . if we did have to force someone through a court order to come before the Congressional committee. This is pretty uncharted territory for many of us and even for Congress.”
“A despicable human being!” the President fired back.
Some Democrats don’t want to push that far.
Pelosi and Schiff appear to think that the Democrats can use the President refusing to cooperate with the Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt as evidence for an “obstruction of Congress” article of impeachment.
Donald Trump is ready to call the Democrats’ bluff on this front.
The President knows that his supporters see through the game the Democrats are playing.
And as long as Republican voters stick by the President, Senate Republicans will back Trump in any impeachment trial.
That’s because they know Republican voters would punish any Senator that stabbed the President in the back at the ballot box.
Republican voters would not vote for their Democrat opponents, though.
The most likely outcome would be that Republican voters stay home on Election Day and Democrats sweep to victory due to an enthusiasm gap.
The realization that Republican voters have not yet abandoned the President is setting in for Democrats.
That’s why Democrats are floating extreme proposals like jailing Trump officials to create the false narrative that the Trump administration is a crime syndicate to try and drive down the President’s grassroots Republican support.
