During a town hall meeting with constituents in Michigan this week, Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib agreed that U.S. Marshals should “hunt down” White House officials and remove them from office if they "refuse to leave power." This includes President Trump.

The idea was suggested by a man questioning Tlaib, who nodded in agreement, and then admitted Democrats on Capitol Hill have been having a discussion about who can arrest administration officials and where they could be held.

"This is the last caucus conversation we've had. Did you know this is really unprecedented? This is the worst time we've ever had a situation like this. They're trying to figure out, no joke, is it the DC police that goes and gets them?" Tlaib said. "Where do we hold them? Like, I'm not in those kinds of conversations but I'm asking, what happens?"

"I'm telling you, they're trying to be like, 'Well where are we going put them? Where are we going to hold...'" she continued, suggesting they can be held in Detroit. "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. Well, what happens if they continue to not comply?"

As a reminder, Tlaib was one of the first Democrats to call for impeachment of President Trump immediately after she was elected in 2018. She infamously said she was going to "impeach the motherf*cker."

Before becoming a member of Congress Tlaib, kicking and screaming, was escorted out of a speech by President Trump.
