Rashida Tlaib headed for House censure vote for anti-Israel comments

Posted in Trump

The House will move forward with an effort to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) after lawmakers rejected an effort to table the motion, dealing a blow to Democratic leaders who sought to shield their party member from a formal condemnation over comments she has made related to the conflict in Israel.
Lawmakers voted 208-213 to table the motion, falling short of the simple majority vote needed to kill the legislation on the House floor. The House is scheduled to bring the resolution up for a final vote on Wednesday, according to a whip notice sent to lawmakers.
