Congresswoman Lauren Underwood just backed impeachment, continuing her pattern of following in lockstep with AOC and her socialist squad.
No surprise, given Unhinged Underwood has taken one extreme position after another in Congress, proudly made herself the 5th Member of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist “Squad” just a few weeks ago, boasts of having the single most liberal voting record of any member in the House, and has taken on one of the most radical records of any freshman member of Congress.
It’s just a little surprising, given her total flip-flop from last week when she told reporters that backing impeachment would “look like a power grab” and that impeachment is “not what we’re here for.”
Oh by the way… her district voted for Trump by 4 points in 2016.

“Unhinged Underwood is once again proving to voters how wildly out-of-step she is with her district,” said CLF Spokesman Calvin Moore. “Moves like this make clear that Underwood’s hatred of President Trump and her desire to buddy up with the impeachment-obsessed socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is far more important to her than doing what her constituents sent her to Washington to do.”
