WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., is looking for co-sponsors on a resolution to determine whether President Donald Trump has committed impeachable acts while in office, according to media reports.

Politico reported in its daily Playbook email Tuesday morning that Tlaib is circulating a letter among colleagues asking them to join a resolution despite the finding by special counsel Robert Mueller that the president did not work with Russia to help him get elected. 

The Free Press also learned that Tlaib made short remarks explaining the resolution to House Democratic colleagues at the party's caucus meeting on Tuesday morning. 

Tlaib's push comes despiteHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi's suggestion that impeachment proceedings are off the table, at least until there is enough evidence of offenses that could sway Republican opinion in the Senate.
