Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib told constituents at a town hall in Detroit that she and her colleagues are actively reviewing ways to arrest Trump officials.
Her comments came in the midst of a discussion about what can be done with those in the administration who decline to comply with subpoenas as part of the Democrats’ feckless impeachment inquiry.
The Representative’s comments are another in a string of incredibly unhinged rants of late, even by her already neurotic standards.
“This is the first time we’ve ever had a situation like this,” Tlaib (D-MI) told a crowd member demanding officials be taken in. “So they’re trying to figure out, no joke, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them? We don’t know. Where do we hold them?”

These comments, unbelievably, were prefaced by Tlaib nodding in agreement with the constituent calling for U.S. Marshals to “hunt down” administration officials.
Tlaib even offered to have them incarcerated right there in Detroit.
“I will tell them they can hold all those people right here in Detroit,” she added. “We’ll take care of them and make sure they show up to the committee hearings.”
Tlaib’s comments echo those of fellow Rep. Maxine Waters, who recently suggested that the President himself needs to be “imprisoned” and “placed in solitary confinement.”
They call Republicans fascists, yet try to silence and arrest their political adversaries, absent any crimes. https://t.co/K1GQke28lO

President Trump has spit fire at Democrats over their impeachment inquiry, defining it as a thinly disguised coup.
“As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People,” he wrote on social media.
The New York Times declared that statement to be a ‘false claim.’
Now that Tlaib is admitting – “no joke” – that Democrats are looking to arrest and/or hunt down White House officials, that claim seems to belong a little more in the realm of truth.
….People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!

Tlaib may, in all actuality, be projecting a bit here, as she is under investigation by the House Ethics Committee over potential campaign finance violations.
She is currently raising money for her campaign by selling t-shirts saying of Trump, “Impeach the MF,” and recently incited a crowd by shouting “impeach the …” while her unhinged supporters shouted back, “mother ******!”
Imagine if Trump had made these vile comments, or suggested somebody should ‘hunt down’ and arrest Tlaib? The outrage would be off the charts. Democrats, however, get away with this kind of language. It’s who they are.
They’ve become the very radicals they once tried to distance themselves from.
