Elizabeth Warren Calls For Impeachment Proceedings Against Trump

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
