Elizabeth Warren Calls for Trump's Impeachment

Elizabeth Warren

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is calling for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

The Massachusetts Democrat is the first of the declared presidential aspirants to do so, according to the Associated Press. She made the call via Twitter Friday afternoon in response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, released Thursday, on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Mueller did not find that Trump or his campaign staff had colluded with Russia, but the special counsel did find evidence of ties between campaign officials and Russia. He left open the question of whether Trump and his staff obstructed the investigation into the matter. Warren thought many of the report's revelations extremely disturbing.

The House of Representatives, which as of this year has a Democratic majority, is responsible for bringing articles of impeachment against a president. The Senate then holds the trial, and for a president to be removed from office, two-thirds of senators must vote to convict.
