Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., took aim at President Donald Trump on Sunday and tried out her own 2020 campaign slogan: Lock HIM up!?
Warren said Trump “may not even be a free person” by next year’s election, implying that he’d be imprisoned by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller’s probe is expected to wrap up in just a few weeks.
The Massachusetts senator also urged fellow candidates to avoid letting Trump define the contours of the election with his provocative attacks.
Warren has been a frequent Trump target. Hours after she formally kicked off her campaign on Saturday, the president renewed his criticism of her past claims of Native American heritage. In a tweet, Trump called Warren “Pocahontas” and said he would see her “on the campaign TRAIL.”
Warren formally apologized for insulting the Cherokee Nation earlier this year after using false claims of American Indian heritage to advance her law career throughout the 1980s and 1990s.
Warren emerged as one of the Democratic Party’s loudest critics during the 2016 election, campaigning vigorously for Hillary Clinton.
That shift made her sharp, though brief, shot at Trump on Sunday all the more notable.
“By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person,” she said.
Asked if she supported impeaching Trump, Warren was noncommittal, saying only that special counsel Robert Mueller needs to be allowed to finish his investigation and make his report public.
