(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) sent out a series of Tweets this afternoon, arguing that the House of Representatives should begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump based on the information presented in the report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

“The severity of this misconduct demands that elected officials in both parties set aside political considerations and do their constitutional duty,” said Warren in the last of these Tweets.

“That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States,” she said.

“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,” Warren said in the first Tweet. “Once elected, Donald Trump obstructed the investigation into that attack.”

“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,’” Warren said in a follow-up Tweet. “The correct process for exercising that authority is impeachment.”

“To ignore a President’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage in this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways.”
