Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Mich., on Tuesday backtracked on comments that she no longer supported the impeachment probe into President Donald Trump, instead saying the president should be censured.

"We are so close to an election. I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don't see the value of taking him out of office. But I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable," Lawrence said during an appearance Sunday on the "No BS News Hour" podcast.

"I want him censured," Lawrence added. "I want it on the record that the House of Representatives did their job and they told this president and any president coming behind him that this is unacceptable behavior and, under our Constitution, we will not allow it."

She said she also supports impeaching Trump.

"I was an early supporter for impeachment in 2017. The House Intelligence Committee followed a very thorough process in holding hearings these past two weeks. The information they revealed confirmed that this president has abused the power of his office, therefore I continue to support impeachment," Lawrence said in a statement per the Hill.

"However, I am very concerned about Senate Republicans and the fact that they would find this behavior by the president acceptable," Lawrence said.
