Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Tuesday night argued in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump rather than waiting for him to be impeached and removed from office, as "sometimes there are issues that are bigger than politics."

"I think that's the case with this impeachment inquiry," Warren said. "When I made the decision to run for president, I certainly didn't think it was going to be about impeachment. But when the [Robert] Mueller report came out, I read it, all 442 pages. When I got to the end, I realized that Mueller had shown to a fare-thee-well, this president had obstructed justice and done it repeatedly."

Warren said, immediately after the Mueller report broke, she called for opening an impeachment inquiry, but it did not happen, and Trump "broke the law again in the summer, broke it again this fall."

"You know, we took a constitutional oath," she said. "That is that no one is above the law, and that includes the president of the United States. Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences."
