Four progressive Democrats, led by freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, held a press conference where one declared "it is time for us to impeach this president."

Additional remarks by Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley referred to President Trump as the "occupant" of the White House. 

One of the charges leveled against Trump, by Omar, is that he colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 election. Unfortunately, for her, allegations of collusion haven't been found all that credible. At all.

I wonder if Twitter will end up banning him for violating its terms of service or whatever. Then it'll be really lit.

The million-dollar question after this presser is whether Pelosi knew that Omar was going to call for impeachment, urged her not to, and was ignored or if she had no idea it was coming. 'She's been on the outs with the Squad lately, as 'we're all aware, and she obviously 'can't stop them from talking to the media. But this is no ordinary presser; this is heavy national exposure in reply to some of 'Trump's most inflammatory comments yet as president. Trump has raised public interest in these four and now here they are in a spotlight. Inevitably, to some extent their message tonight will be seen as the Democratic 'Party's message, so 'you'd expect to have the Speaker exerting some influence over what they had to say behind the scenes. Did she? 'It's worth contrasting the key points made by the various members. Ayanna 'Pressley's takeaway was for people not to let Trump distract them from things like detention conditions at the border, which is fine for Pelosi and the rest of the party. 'AOC's message was that 'she'd never want to leave a country she loves so much, also fine for 'Pelosi's caucus. 'Omar's message, though? Impeach the SOB. Not so fine. Did she go rogue?


Are we witnessing Speaker Pelosi losing control over her own party's left flank?
