Warren Dodges THREE Times on Whether Democrats Should Slow Down the Senate

The liberal senator wouldn’t say if Democrats should try to obstruct the Senate until Congress commissions a special prosecutor to investigate Trump-Russia ties.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) dodged questions regarding Senate Democrats’ intentional slow-walking of Senate business three times in 90 seconds during an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju on Wednesday.

Raju asked Warren how far she is willing to go in order to force the appointment of a special prosecutor, but Warren refused to give a straight answer.

“This is a moment in history. Donald Trump has tried to put himself above the law and that’s not the way it works in America,” Warren said. “Everyone has to follow the law.”

Raju then asked if Democrats are going too far by slowing down Senate business on Wednesday.

“I don’t think this should be partisan,” Warren answered, emphasizing her desire for everyone in Congress to endorse an independent investigation.

“You’re willing to bog down the Senate further?” Raju asked, trying one last time.

Warren only launched into a tirade about possible connections between Trump and Russia, not addressing Democrats’ obstruction.
