One day after the release of the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called for impeachment proceedings against President Trump.

Warren is one of the most prominent members of her party to support impeachment proceedings in the wake of Mueller’s report. Her statement will also put more pressure on other Democrats competing in the 2020 presidential primary to take a stance on whether the details in Mueller’s report should prompt impeachment proceedings.

Democratic leaders have shied away from calling for impeachment following the redacted report’s release, with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) saying impeachment would not be “worthwhile.” House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings (D-MD) came close to supporting impeachment on Friday, but said that Congress needs to examine the report and the Mueller investigation more closely before making a decision.

  1. And to be clear, I don’t necessarily think we should impeach this minute, I just love that we’re one day after the censored Mueller report and talk of impeachment is the new normal. More, puleeez! :smile:

  2. I think it’s inevitable that impeachment proceedings will move forward. A calculated risk, but an action that has to be taken to do the will of the majority of the country, and to maintain the credibility of the House. Plus it will back the GOP Senate into finally exposing their treasonous roots.

  4. A woman, a potential Presidential nominee says what about impeaching the snotty nosed brat? That’s got to get his goat, poor Donnie.
