- Michigan's newest congresswoman Rashida Tlaib sworn in Thursday in the nation's capital, swearing in a different way at a rally Thursday night. Ms Tlaib, 42, is one in a cadre of ebullient, media-savvy rising stars - the self-described "radical" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is another - who aim to shake up Washington's status quo.
Republicans have bridled at Ms Tlaib's comments, using them to portray Democrats as seeking politically-motivated retribution against Mr Trump rather than common ground.
"I don't like that language, I wouldn't use that language, I don't establish any language standards for my colleagues", Pelosi told MSNBC, "but I don't think it's anything worse than the president has said".
Aside from the latest developments, most reports indicate that House Democratic leaders will wait for Robert Mueller's report on his investigation of Trump, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi adding that "We shouldn't be impeaching for a political reason, and we shouldn't avoid impeachment for a political reason".
Roger Federer set to finally get wish of playing Serena Williams
Veteran Roger Federer claimed a commanding 6-1, 6-1 victory over 23-year-old Cameron Norrie to earn Switzerland a first point. Federer beat Cameron Norrie, the British No 2, 6-1, 6-1 in 57 minutes as Switzerland defeated Great Britain 3-0.
On the same day, the Detroit Free Press published an op-ed co-written by Tlaib and founder of the Impeach Donald Trump Now campaign, John Bonifaz, which called Trump a "direct and serious threat to our country".
Amazingly enough, in full context, Tlaib was recalling a conversation she had with her son. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said he doesn't think "comments like these particularly help". "Bullies don't win, ' and I said, 'Baby, they don't"- because we're gonna go in and impeach the motherf - - - er".
"I think that the office of the presidency should be treated with respect", he said.
"'The time for impeachment proceedings is now", the column concludes'.
