Of course, you’ll remember Rep. Rashida Tlaib as the newly elected congresswoman who shouted at a party, “We’re gonna impeach the motherf***er,” so we can assure you she does take pleasure in introducing an impeachment resolution against President Trump, who was shown after a two-year, $25 million investigation not to have colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

Her sister in Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, says she takes no pleasure in impeachment proceedings, but the duty just fell into her lap on the release of the Mueller report.

That’s quite a heavy burden: Congress is going to have to determine what crime, exactly, was the subject of the president’s obstruction of justice.

But let’s not even pretend this is a new or serious thing; does AOC even know how many impeachment resolutions have been introduced already? Rep. Brad Sherman (who?) introduced his articles of impeachment at noon the first day Democrats took back control of the House.

“Many know I take no pleasure in discussions of impeachment” — yeah, right. That explains the split in the party between establishment Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer who think impeachment is a waste of time that could be spent on winning 2020 and young progressives who were elected on the promise of impeaching Trump.
