Tlaib, a member of the House Oversight Committee, recalled to Yahoo News how she had previously witnessed some of the closed-door depositions of the impeachment witnesses, including that of Bill Taylor, the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
“The ones I was in there, I said, ‘I hope the American people get to hear this,'” she said. “And so for much of it, it’s very liberating in the sense that you get to hear what I’ve been hearing.”
It’s a bit of an understatement to say that Tlaib has been on the forefront of the push to impeach Trump. Just hours after being sworn into office following the 2018 elections that gave Democrats a majority in the House, she told a crowd of supporters that Congress would “impeach the motherf***er.”
