(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Ilhan Omar (D.-Minn.) sent out two successive tweets on Wednesday night, the first celebrating the fact that she had served that day as Speaker Pro Tempore of the House of Representatives and the second calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

“Such an honor to preside over the House Floor tonight,” Omar said in the first Tweet, which featured a screen capture of her at the speaker’s podium. “Every day I am humbled to serve the people of my community.”

“Impeachment is about upholding the rule of law and protecting our democracy,” she said in the next Tweet. “It’s time Democrats open an impeachment inquiry against the current occupant of the White House.”
