WHAT CONSTITUTION? Warren Says ‘DC Should Be a State’

Senator Elizabeth Warren ignored the Constitution this week when she called for the District of Columbia to be admitted to the Union as an independent state.

The Democrat’s comments are a direct rebuke of the United States Constitution.

Article I, Section 8 states:

“To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings.”
