Trump responded to Tlaib's words Friday during a press briefing outside the White House, calling the congresswoman's comments "disgraceful".

Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib of MI made history yesterday as one of the first two Muslim women sworn into Congress, as well as the becoming the first Palestinian-American representative. The New York Democrat's committee would be the one to begin impeachment proceedings.

Republicans seized on both Tlaib's impeachment call and her language. I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language, but I wouldn't establish language standards for my colleagues'.

Chris Cillizza, an editor at CNN, commented that the outburst "almost certainly is the wrong strategy if Democrats want to beat Trump in 2020". Thanks to a field splintered among multiple Democratic candidates, Tlaib squeaked to victory with just 31.2 percent of the vote before going on to win the general election easily.

Pelosi hasn't ruled out pursuing impeachment, but she's urged her caucus to take a wait-for-Mueller approach.

Tlaib used "foul language" and is "cheered" by the Democratic base and "we watched a brand new speaker say nothing to her", McCarthy said in summary.

She quoted her son as saying: "Look mama, you won".

He went on to say he had "done nothing wrong" with regard to collusion with Russian Federation and had "had the most successful first two years of any president". "And I said, 'Baby, they don't.' Because we're gonna go in there and impeach the motherfucker".

Warren, speaking with reporters after a campaign event in Council Bluffs, Iowa, didn't mention her when asked for a response, pivoting to say Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation had to be protected. Pelosi purposely avoided - and encouraged most fellow Democrats to avoid - any talk of impeachment during the election, believing there could be backlash from voters. #unapologeticallyMe", she tweeted. "This is not just about Donald Trump.

"'Momma look you won".

Nichols himself also has made the case for impeaching Trump, writing in his column for The Capital Times earlier this week that "if Americans take seriously the impeachment process that led to the end of Richard Nixon's presidency in 1974, then we can no longer neglect the arguments for Trump's impeachment".

Most recently, on Friday - with the federal government shutdown nearing its third week - Trump expressed skepticism that impeachment could be in his future, highlighting (and exaggerating) his achievements.

"I'm sure upon reflection", Connolly suggested, "she might choose other words to describe her feelings".

One of the Democrats heading H.R. 1, Representative John Sarbanes of Maryland, said Friday it will "set the table" for the type of legislative action that's to come from Democrats.

"I think that the office of the presidency should be treated with respect", he said. "We have to follow the facts".
