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.
