House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) also condemned her comments. "She went in front of an enthusiastic crowd of her supporters and it was red meat for them".
However, impeachment proceedings in the House would be mostly useless, at least right now.
However, other House Democrats quickly pushed back against impeachment talk. "We should wait until Special Counsel Mueller completes his investigation", he told CNN's Situation Room on Thursday. Pelosi said that she has a "generational" reaction to that language and wouldn't use it, but that she won't censor her colleagues. It's a signal that she cares more about challenging Trump and his horrific policies than politeness or decorum, and that she's not obeying the unspoken rules laid out for how a political fight is supposed to look-the kinds of rules that as of yet haven't gotten Democrats very far.
"We have to follow the facts; we have to get the facts", he added. They want to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller to issue a final report from his Russian Federation probe before moving to impeach Trump - if they even do. "So we'll just have to see how it comes".
Trump says he brought up impeachment during a closed meeting with Democratic congressional leaders. "Maybe it won't, but it's much too early".
But even if impeachment is now on hold, a criminal indictment could theoretically lead to severe financial penalties or even imprisonment - something no president has ever faced.
Two members of the left flank, California Congressman Brad Sherman and Texas Congressman Al Green, introduced articles of impeachment against Trump on Thursday, the first day of the new Congress.
Newly elected Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI is getting some pushback from fellow lawmakers on Capitol Hill after using a profanity Thursday evening when she said President Donald Trump should be impeached.
"But I don't think it's anything worse than what the president has said". There is nothing in the Constitution that prohibits the President from being indicted.
"Ordinarily, I don't express myself in strong terms, but I thought it was appropriate here", Vice President Cheney told a supportive Fox News.
Whether an indictment would guarantee impeachment, however, is another story.
Most recently, on Friday - with the federal government shutdown nearing its third week - Trump expressed skepticism that impeachment could be in his future, highlighting (and exaggerating) his achievements. And secondly, how important were they?
'You can't impeach somebody that's doing a great job.
As IJR Red reported, some Democratic members of the House made moves to impeach Trump during the last Congress, and with them in the majority this session, they are already making similar attempts.
But a Tlaib spokesman signaled later in the day that neither she nor her constituents would back down.
"I am not talking about those things", said Rep. Abigail Spanberger with a laugh when asked Friday to respond to Tlaib's remarks.
