"Progressives expressed outrage on Monday over a CNN weekend segment on the so-called "leadership" of five centrist freshman congresswomen on the impeachment of President Donald Trump while ignoring the contributions of congresswomen of color who have been making the case for months.
The five white lawmakers backed impeachment proceedings following months of demands from ethics watchdogs and other critics, including the so-called "squad"—Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.)—and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).
In the report, CNN anchor Dana Bash said the five representatives she dubbed the "anti-squad"—Reps. Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.), Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), Mikie Sherrill (D-N.J.), Chrissy Houlahan (D-Penn.), and Elaine Luria (D-Va.)—engaged in "risky political business" a week ago by joining more than 100 other Democrats in calling for impeachment proceedings. Some of their Democratic colleagues had demanded impeachment more than two years ago."
