Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) only hours after she became the first 2020 candidate to call for the House to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
I was told to wait until after the election so now I will ask again, has Trump been impeached yet? No you say?
Maddow read out loud four of Warren’s tweets explaining her decision
.“Well, I read the report,” Warren replied.
“I was on an airplane yesterday and started reading it and I read it way into the night last night and I got to the end and realized, this is about a point of principle,” she explained. “The report is absolutely clear, that a foreign government attacked our electoral system to help Donald Trump, he welcomed that help and then when it was investigated by our own federal authorities, Donald Trump took multiple steps to try to obstruct justice.”
“This isn’t about politics, this isn’t even specifically about Donald Trump himself,” she argued. “It is about what a president of the United States should be able to do and what the role of Congress is in saying, no, a president does not get to come in and stop an investigation about a foreign power that attacked this country or an investigation about his own wrongdoing.”
“Equal justice under law, no one is above the law and that includes the president of the United States,” the former law professor explained. “It is the constitutional responsibility of Congress to follow through on that.”
Trump asked if he could pardon himself!
