House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said he didn’t “really like the language” that his new colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) used when talking about President Trump, but said he was more concerned about what she said about impeachment.

“Well, no, I don’t really like that language. But more to the point, I disagree with what she said. It is too early to talk about that intelligently,” he told CNN Friday. “We have to follow the facts, we have to get the facts. That’s why it is important to protect the Mueller investigation and that’s why it’s important to do our own inquiry. We have to get the facts. We will see where the facts lead. Maybe that will lead to impeachment. Maybe it won’t. It is much too early.”

While speaking to supporters after getting sworn into Congress on Thursday, Tlaib said she wanted to “impeach that motherfucker,” referring to Trump.
