Elizabeth Warren on Donald Trump’s Impeachment

Elizabeth Warren has spoken up about the potential impeachment of Donald Trump.

In an interview with Jezebel, she is echoing what many of us believe, she has come out publicly and stated that she would “absolutely” support impeaching President Donald Trump if allegations about his relationship with Russia are proven true.

What I love is her calm, even-handed approach despite the fact that she would be justified to use much harsher language.

“I want to be sure that we are keeping this as nonpartisan as possible. And so the way I try to think about this and talk about it is to say let’s start with the facts,” Sen. Warren said. “We absolutely need to get a hold of Comey’s notes, any other written papers, any tapes that may have been made, and we need to get witnesses in here under oath. Let’s do our fact gathering so we’ve got all of the facts on the table in front of us and then evaluate whether or not those facts lead to a charge of impeachment.”

She smartly avoids making this a D vs. R issue, I love it!

“Let’s be clear: In the past, there has been strong bipartisan agreement that obstruction of justice is an impeachable offense. That’s not a Democratic position or a Republican conviction, it is a bipartisan position. And if the facts that are currently alleged are proven, then we should take the next step.”

Showing she is the more mature and respectable candidate will definitely help win moderates in 2020.

“I believe they do see the risks,” Warren said. “Now, I think many of them are hesitating about what they want to do about it politically. But I’m urging all of them: Put country above party. This should not be a political issue. What Donald Trump has done threatens the security of the United States and we need Congress to step up and act like grown-ups here. We’re the ones who have to be responsible now.”

Let’s hope DC flushes out Trump, pronto.  We need Elizabeth Warren BIGLY in 2020.

Let’s keep fighting!
