Elizabeth Warren calls on Congress to start impeachment proceedings against Trump

On Saturday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) demanded Congress started impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, becoming the first 2020 presidential candidate to urge Congress to do so, Fox News reported

Her statement: “I know people say this is politically charged and we shouldn’t go there, and that there is an election coming up, but there are some things that are bigger than politics,” Warren told a crowd at Keene College, New Hampshire in wake of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian election meddling.

“We cannot be an America that says it is OK for a president of the United States to try and block an investigation into a foreign attack on our country or an investigation into that president’s own misbehavior -- so I have called on the House to initiate impeachment proceedings.”

The Mueller report, according to Attorney General William Barr, said there was no evidence to substantiate allegations that Trump colluded with Russians, but was inconclusive on whether the President obstructed justice.
