Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign is sputtering. Her poll numbers are terrible and the media is paying more attention to other candidates.
In a desperate move to keep herself in the news cycle, she’s now calling for the House to impeach Trump.
CBS News reports:
Elizabeth Warren calls on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump
Elizabeth Warren became the first Democratic presidential candidate to call for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump Friday afternoon, citing the “severity” of “misconduct” detailed in the report by 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. That means the House should initiate impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States,” the Massachusetts senator wrote on Twitter.
In an earlier tweet, Warren said that the report proved that Russia had interfered in the 2016 election with the goal of helping Mr. Trump, and showed that the president “obstructed the investigation into that attack.” Mueller did not come to a conclusion as to whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice.
Warren cited a segment of the report where Mueller wrote that “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 just wants attention. She’s polling a distant third in Massachusetts, the state she represents in the Senate.
It’s kid of sad.
