Warren: Impeachment Proceedings Not a ‘Waste’ — ‘Take a Vote and Then Live with That Vote for the Rest of Your Life’

Tuesday on MSNBC’s “All In,” 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) followed up on her earlier call for impeachment proceedings she made on the floor of the U.S. Senate by saying such an effort would not be a waste, even with a Republican-led majority in the Senate.

Warren told host Chris Hayes that even despite a 66-vote requirement in the Senate to remove President Donald Trump from office, the House should proceed with the effort and force senators to vote on it.

“[I] think that we should have the impeachment proceeding and assuming that the House votes for impeachment and sends it over to the Senate, and every single person in Congress, House and Senate, should be required to look at the evidence in front of us and declare,” she said. “You think that’s OK for a president of the United States or you don’t take? Take a vote and then live with that vote for the rest of your life.”
