Non-voting Delegate to the House of Representatives Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) said that impeaching President Trump would be a “waste of energy” during an interview with CNN on Tuesday.

CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked Norton if she thought House Democrats should file articles of impeachment against Trump.

“The first thing I ask myself when I file a bill is can I get it through the Senate, or am I simply making a point for my constituents. Why would we go down the impeachment road when we cannot get it through the Senate?” Norton asked.

Norton added that impeachment would be a “useless waste of energy,” and said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should complete his investigation before there is talk about impeachment.
