Rep. Tlaib on Impeachment: “This Is a Lawless President”

Rashida Tlaib for Congress

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Detroit)

The rest of the nation is getting to know Rashida Tlaib as a member of the firebrand caucus in the new Democratic congressional majority. Her name is invoked alongside Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) — either as a hero of leftist politics — or a consistent villain of conservative circles.

But around here, we know Tlaib much better. As a former state representative from Southwest Detroit, as an outspoken advocate for her constituents here in Detroit, as a dedicated fighter for those who are overlooked and underappreciated.

Congresswoman Tlaib joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to talk about what’s going on in Washington, her calls to impeach President Trump, and to address two new pieces of legislation she has recently introduced — one focused on auto insurance rates, and the other on petroleum coke.
