Democratic members of the House of Representatives are poised to publicly rebuke Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the coming days; vowing to “move forward” on their plan to impeach President Trump.
“I’m going to move forward, obviously,” said Rep. Rashida Tlaib during a closed-door meeting with fellow Democrats Tuesday. “Speaker Pelosi and all members of leadership have always encouraged us to represent our districts and this was something that was very important to my residents and continues to be.”
“By calling for impeachment, by talking about impeachment, we were able to limit what this president would do,” added Rep. Brad Sherman.
Nancy Pelosi stunned liberal lawmakers this week when she announced her opposition to removing the President from office; saying Trump “isn’t worth” the political fallout heading into the 2020 national election.

'NO BIG DEAL': Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Colleague Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn a fellow Democrat who viciously called President Trump a ‘motherf***er’ just hours after being sworn in; saying “I’m not in the censorship business.”
Pelosi was asked to comment on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s fiery speech at an event hosted by MoveOn.org Thursday night; telling a crowd of supporters the Democrats are “going to impeach that motherf***er!”
“I probably have a generational reaction to it,” Pelosi said. “But in any event, I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language. I don’t … establish any language standards for my colleagues, but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”
“Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it,” she added.

DEMS PANIC: Pelosi Shocks Colleagues, Says ‘NO’ on Impeaching President Trump
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi threw more cold-water on her colleagues’ non-stop efforts to remove the President from office this week; saying it’s simply “not worth” the political struggle to impeach Donald Trump.
The leading Democrat was speaking with the Washington Post when she broke with the liberal wing of her party.
“There have been increasing calls, including from some of your members, for impeachment of the president,” said the Post.
“I’m not for impeachment. This is news. I’m going to give you some news right now because I haven’t said this to any press person before. But since you asked, and I’ve been thinking about this: Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country. And he’s just not worth it,” said Pelosi.
