WASHINGTON | New House Dems get early political lesson
WASHINGTON—Jan 04, 2019—The education of the star-studded class of House freshmen has begun.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib learned that before lunch Friday, when her profane remarks the night before vowing to impeach President Donald Trump drew almost no support, and plenty of pushback, from members of her party.
“It’s been pretty intense,” Tlaib, D-Mich., told The Associated Press in a brief hallway interview Friday as she reported to the House to face her colleagues.
