Warren Calls for the House to Initiate Impeachment  Proceedings Against President Trump

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called on the House of Representatives to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump on Friday after reviewing the redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report.

“The Mueller report lays out facts showing that a hostile foreign government attacked our 2016 election to help Donald Trump and Donald Trump welcomed that help. Once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack,” Warren tweeted.

Warren then went on the claim that Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress, citing a line from Mueller’s final report that stated, “Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.”

“The correct process for exercising that authority is impeachment,” Warren said. “To ignore a President’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways.”

“The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States,” Warren said.
