"I'm not there," the senator told "The View" host Meghan McCain when asked if Democrats should push for impeachment if they take control of Congress after the November midterms. "Where I am is that we need this independent investigation without political interference."


Warren has previously said she would be open to impeachment proceedings if the findings of Mueller's probe merited that action. She said Tuesday that the investigation must first be allowed to proceed.

"I take this very seriously. This is a serious constitutional move. My view on this is, protect the special prosecutor, let him finish his work without political interference," said the senator. "Let him make a full report to the American people and then collectively we can make the decision about what the appropriate next step is. It's Donald Trump who doesn't want Mueller to be able to continue an independent investigation and bring it to a conclusion."

The special counsel is also investigating whether Trump obstructed justice. Trump has blasted the probe as a "witch hunt."
