Tlaib Gifted Impeachment Guide to Freshman Democrats

Tlaib Gifted Impeachment Guide to Freshman Democrats

June 12, 2019

In an interview with The Nation’s “Next Left” podcast Tuesday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib revealed that she gave every freshman Democrat a copy of The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump during orientation week in November, 2018.

“So it was orientation week and… all of a sudden… every person that was in some sort of leadership role was sending stuff to our hotels,” Tlaib told the podcast’s host John Nichols, who wrote the book’s introduction. “And I said, ‘Can I do that?’”

After her chief of staff confirmed it could be arranged, Tlaib decided to give a copy of the book to the more than 40 new members of the House Democratic conference. “Well this is my gift, the guide to impeaching the president,” she added.
