Sen. Elizabeth Warren may be one of President Donald Trump's most vocal critics. But she does not want to boot him out of office, yet.
Ahead of November's critical midterm elections, billionaire former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer has piled more than $20 million into his campaign to impeach the president. Asked Thursday evening if she agreed with the mega-donor's effort, Warren answered, "Nope."
The Massachusetts Democrat said she wanted to see special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation come to a close before she draws a conclusion. The former FBI director is looking into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin.
Warren said she gets "worried" about the president trying to fire Mueller when he rages against Mueller or the Justice Department that appointed him. She urged congressional Republicans to take up legislation protecting Mueller.
"The investigation then can be completed, and once the investigation is completed, then we know what we've got in front of us," Warren said during a New York Times TimesTalks event....

A bunch of them are jumping on that band wagon, because they’ve discovered the majority of the public are happy with president Trump. Wouldn’t trust her, or any other liberal. They’re all lying.
“She’ll be first in line to vote for conviction should it ever come to that. “
Of course she will. But in the meantime, she wants to string out the leaks and mini-indictments that have nothing to do with Trump as long as she can.
Yup. There is no upside to her to align with Maxine...
“We want to hear the evidence and have a fair trial before we hang him.” Elizabeth Warren.
Indeed, she just said she is waiting on Muller.
They are all waiting on Muller.
So the 'rats know there's nothing to go forward with. However they can't let Mueller and his political hacks take the heat (and prosecutions for fraud waste and abuse they so richly deserve) because he might just out *all* the things he's found - which would be even more damning for the 'rats. So they're stuck with him, an illegal bastard tar-baby they don't know how to gracefully close down but an entity with a life of it's own, going nowhere and generating increasing embarrassment.
She believes that she will be the nominee in 2020 and that she can beat Trump.
She may be right about the first thing.
She is profoundly wrong about the second thing.
If they don't, they won't.
If they start the impeachment process or if they promise to start impeachment, it may backfire on them.
They may have learned from the Clinton impeachment how impeachment proceedings could fail and hurt them.
Clearly, the best strategy for the Democrats now is not to promise impeachment but to leave the door open for it if circumstances are favorable.
Steyer needs to be investigated. He needs a colonoscopy done like he endourages against conservatives.
Just doesn’t want to try...yet....when there’s no chance of it happening and they end up with another loss on their side...
