Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) on Tuesday criticized the arrests of protesters on Capitol Hill who called on lawmakers to start impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Eight individuals were arrested by the Capitol Police in the Cannon House Office Building on Tuesday morning and charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, a Capitol Police spokeswoman told The Hill.

Tlaib, who has been one of the most vocal liberals pushing for Trump’s impeachment, responded to a tweet from By the People, an activist group calling for impeachment that organized the protests. The freshman congresswoman called the arrests “ridiculous.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is ridiculous. This is the people’s House and they have every right to demand accountability of this lawless President,” Tlaib tweeted.

“This is how we take back our democracy. When the people lead, Congress and those in power will follow. Today, I uplift the brave fighters who are demanding accountability of this lawless President. Our future and country depend on it,” Tlaib added in another tweet along with the hashtag #TimetoImpeach.
The protests come after a coalition of liberal activist groups held a rally with Tlaib and Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) outside the Capitol last Thursday to highlight a petition with more than 10 million signatures calling for Congress to start impeachment proceedings.
