    On Friday, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who stated earlier she would be a Democratic presidential candidate for the 2020 election, urged the US Congress to commence impeachment proceedings against President Trump, following the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.

    US President Donald Trump took to Twitter once again on Saturday to draw attention to the findings of Mueller's probe and bash openly anti-Trump Democrats who were behind the report, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller himself, saying that the document "should not have been authorized in the first place".

    In a follow-up statement, he once again accused left-wing outlets of being "the Fake News Media" as he claimed that they had made all possible efforts to stir public anger, ignoring the fact that the investigation had found that there was "no collusion" with Russia or "obstruction". 

    ​​Trump concluded that "the end result of the greatest Witch Hunt in U.S. political history is No Collusion with Russia (and No Obstruction). Pretty Amazing!" 

    The remarks come after Massachussets Senator Elizabeth Warren, who recently announced she would stand as a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2020 election, called on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against US President Donald Trump, citing the "severity" of the "misconduct" detailed in the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

    Prior to this, Attorney General Bill Barr stated that Mueller had not found any proof that the Trump campaign had conspired with Russia to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election.
