Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., was non-committal about whether the House should impeach President Donald Trump — saying she would not "predispose" a matter that would be voted in the upper chamber.

At a CNN Town Hall on Monday, Sen. Klobuchar said the decision on whether to proceed with impeachment is one that will be made in the House.

"I believe I'm the jury here, so I'm not going to predispose things," she said. "I'm not going to say whether it is or isn't."

"The impeachment proceedings are up to the House," she explained. "They're going to have to make that decision. I am in the Senate," she said, adding she believes "very strongly that President Trump should be held accountable."

"I believe, first of all, we need to have hearings in both the House and the Senate and not just with Attorney General Barr," she said. "We need to bring Director Mueller before the United States Senate because otherwise we are never going to get to the bottom of it."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was the first Democratic 2020 contender to call for impeachment proceedings against Trump following the Mueller report's release last Thursday.
