Tlaib Floats Detaining White House Officials in Detroit for Refusing to Comply with Subpoenas

Tlaib Floats Detaining White House Officials in Detroit for Refusing to Comply with SubpoenasRepresentative Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) suggested this week at a town hall that local Detroit law enforcement officers could detain White House officials who refuse to comply with subpoenas issued by Democrats, quipping that, "we won't hurt them."The freshman Democrat nodded in agreement with a town hall attendee who suggested U.S. Marshals “hunt down” White House officials if they "refuse to leave power."Tlaib responded that the current situation is "unprecedented" and said Democratic lawmakers have discussed what the correct process might be to arrest non-compliant White House officials."This is the last caucus conversation we had. Do you know this is really unprecedented?" Tlaib said. "This is the first time we've ever had a situation like this. So they're trying to figure out – no joke – they're trying to figure out, well, is it the D.C. police that goes and gets them?"House Democrats have subpoenaed several Trump administration officials for thousands of documents, some of which relate to the formal impeachment inquiry against the president. Last week, the House Foreign Affairs Committee subpoenaed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for documents involving the Trump administration's communications with Ukraine."Where do we hold them? I'm not in those kinds of conversations, but I'm asking, like, you know, what happens?" Tlaib said, adding that she has been told this is "uncharted territory.""They're trying to be like, well where are we going to put them?" the outspoken progressive continued. "I'm like you all. I ask the same questions. Well what happens when they don't comply? The fact of the matter is, we held Barr and Secretary Ross from commerce, the secretary of commerce, in contempt."In July, the House voted to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt of Congress for defying congressional subpoenas regarding the proposed citizenship question on the 2020 census."I will tell them they can hold all those people right here in Detroit," Tlaib said of the cabinet secretaries. "We'll take care of them and make sure they show up to the committee hearings. We won't hurt them."Tlaib has called for Trump's impeachment since she began campaigning for Congress. She made headlines in November for promising during a speech to a crowd of supporters near Capitol Hill that, "we’re gonna go in there and impeach the motherf—er.'"

Fox News Host Quickly Moves On After GOP Rep. Says Tlaib ‘Hates Jews More Than She Likes Her Grandmother’

Fox News Host Quickly Moves On After GOP Rep. Says Tlaib ‘Hates Jews More Than She Likes Her Grandmother’Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner swiftly brushed aside a Republican congressman’s inflammatory comments about Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Tuesday, briefly expressing shock when Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) said Tlaib “hates Jews more than she likes her grandmother” before ultimately moving on.Green, who was part of a group of lawmakers who recently traveled to Israel, appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered Overtime to discuss Israel’s controversial decision to bar Reps. Tlaib and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) from entering the country.Reacting to the two Muslim congresswomen’s recent press conference denouncing the travel restrictions, Green claimed everything they said in the presser was an “absolute lie” before taking aim at Tlaib, who cried while talking about her Palestinian grandmother.“This grandmother visit and the tears,” he groused. “She hadn’t visited her grandmother for 13 years prior to this. If she really wanted to go see her grandmother, she would have gone.”Noting that Tlaib refused Israel’s offer for her to specifically see her grandmother, Green then added, “Obviously she hates Jews more than she likes her grandmother. Obviously.”“Oh my goodness,” Faulkner uttered, apparently taken aback.Instead of addressing the Tennessee lawmaker’s incendiary remarks, the Fox News anchor went right back to her set of questions she wanted to ask Green, which centered around Muslims serving in Israel’s Knesset and Tlaib’s dismissal of criticism of the group that was set to sponsor her Israel trip.The Fox anchor, meanwhile, never circled back to Green’s comments, letting the incendiary accusation sit without any pushback.The Tennessee congressman’s remarks come on the heels of President Donald Trump saying he doesn’t “buy” Tlaib’s tears, claiming he’s “watched her violence, craziness and, most importantly, WORDS, for far too long” while also accusing her of hating “all Jewish people.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Fox News Guest: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Have ‘Grotesque Holocaust Envy’

Fox News Guest: Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib Have ‘Grotesque Holocaust Envy’Fox NewsReacting to the controversy surrounding Israel’s decision to deny entry to Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a Fox News guest said on Monday night that the two Muslim congresswomen have “Holocaust envy” because they’re “Islamists.”Appearing on Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle, Qanta Ahmed—who has written for The Daily Beast in the past—blasted the two progressive lawmakers over their Monday press conference in which they denounced the travel restrictions and claimed Israel was suppressing voices of dissent.“What you are seeing is a full-blown Islamist propaganda,” Ahmed said. “These are professional victim-mongering women who unfortunately have been elected to Congress but are using every tool in the playbook of the Muslim Brotherhood of Islamists.”Host Laura Ingraham, meanwhile, said it was easy for her to be “upset and angry about their political Islamist approach to these issues” because she just wants to “defend Israel.” She went on to ask Ahmed if the congresswomen could be “change agents for good.”“They could be—they could be,” she replied. “If they were pluralist Muslims, if they knew what was in the Quran, where we recognize Jews, where we recognize the sanctity of Moses, the holiness of the Torah. But they’re not.”“They are using Islamist tactics to invert reality,” Ahmed continued. “What they are seeking—they have a grotesque Holocaust envy.”She went on to claim that Islamists “envy what they see as the special mark upon the Jewish people that is the membership of genocide” because they want to make it appears as if they’re the “most persecuted” while they “deny the Holocaust.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
