Warren: Time To Begin Impeachment Proceedings Against President Trump, "This Is Not About Politics"


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to the Senate floor Tuesday to call for impeachment proceedings now against President Trump.

SEN. ELIZABETH WARREN (D-MA): Our Constitution is built on the separation of powers, precisely to prevent a dictator from taking control... If any other human had done what's documented in Mueller report, they'd be arrested. [Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell] doesn't want to consider the mountain of evidence. That's wrong...

We are a govt that works by separation of powers. We are not a government that circles the wagon around a leader... the Mueller report clearly constitutes adequate information to begin impeachment proceedings in the House...no matters how many times Republicans wish that away...

I'm here to say one more time in public. This is not a fight I wanted to take on, but this is the fight in front of us now. This is not about politics. This is about the Constitution of the United States of America. We took an oath -- not to try to protect Donald Trump. We took an oath to protect and serve the Constitution of the United States of America. And the way we do that is we begin impeachment proceedings now against this President. Mr. President, I yield the floor.
