Congress should take steps toward the impeachment of President Trump following the release of the redacted Mueller report, Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) told a CNN town hall in New Hampshire Monday.

"I think we have very good reason that there is an investigation that has been conducted that has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration have engaged in obstruction of justice. I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment."

The big picture: At the town hall, Harris discussed her stance on a range of issues, including gun control. She told the audience she would sign an executive order directing government agencies to write new rules if Congress doesn't "get their act together" and pass a bill on guns in the first 100 days of a Harris administration.

The backdrop: Harris' comments on impeaching Trump came 3 days after 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called for his impeachment.

Riot police clashed with protesters in Belarus overnight after a government exit poll predicted Sunday President Aleksander Lukashenko, an authoritarian who has ruled the Eastern European country since 1994, had overwhelmingly defeated a pro-democracy opposition candidate.

Why it matters: It's a precarious moment for the former Soviet republic, where decades of repression and a complete disregard for the coronavirus pandemic threaten to topple "Europe's last dictator." Rights groups said at least one protester was killed and dozens more wounded in a "police crackdown," per AP.
