U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand told reporters in Syracuse Friday that President Donald Trump should resign after his former personal lawyer implicated him in violating campaign finance law.

But she stopped short of saying whether impeachment proceedings should begin against the president, urging more time for an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election to run its course.

“I’m very concerned about the status of the Mueller investigation right now,” she said during a tour of the state fairgrounds. “The fact that his lawyer implicated him in federal crimes is very concerning and I think given that and everything else, yes, he should resign.”

But Gillibrand added it was too early for Congress to move forward on impeachment proceedings, saying it’s Robert Mueller must first complete his investigation. She pointed to legislation backed by Democrats in Congress that would bolster the special counsel’s investigation should the president seek to end it

“It would be premature for Congress to act,” she said. “What we should do is protect that investigation.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this week said Trump should face impeachment if he seeks to pardon Michael Cohen as a way to prevent him from providing information to investigators.

Gillibrand, who is running for re-election this year, continued to insist she was not considering a run for the presidency herself.

“Sometimes, but as you know, I’m 100 percent committed to running for the Senate,” Gillibrand when asked how often she is asked about running for president.

Pressed on a potential White House campaign, she demurred, “No, I’m very focused on being senator.”

Gillibrand faces Republican Chele Farley this November.
