Warren FTW! Again.

Damn. She is the most principled, courageous presidential candidate I've seen in a long, long time:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Friday called on the House to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.

“The Mueller report lays out facts showing that a hostile foreign government attacked our 2016 election to help Donald Trump and Donald Trump welcomed that help. Once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said on Twitter.

“Mueller put the next step in the hands of Congress: ‘Congress has authority to prohibit a President’s corrupt use of his authority in order to protect the integrity of the administration of justice.’ The correct process for exercising that authority is impeachment,” she added.

Warren is the first 2020 candidate to call for Trump’s impeachment, and she’s among only a handful of Democratic members of Congress who have done the same. Most of those calls are coming from freshman House Democrats, like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

Rashida Tlaib said, "we're going to impeach the motherfucker." Let's hope so.
