Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Friday called on the House to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Warren said her reasoning is based on the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which Attorney General William Barr made available — with redactions — to Congress and the public on Thursday. "The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty," Warren tweeted. In an appearance on CNN's The Rachel Maddow Show on Friday evening, Warren added that "the report is absolutely clear that a foreign government attacked our electoral system to help Donald Trump." Warren is the first 2020 Democratic presidential candidate to openly call for impeachment.
