Dem Rep Waters: Trump ‘Investigation’ Underway; Evidence Not Required for Impeachment

Image result for maxine waters memeMonday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” when asked about her comments last week stating that her “greatest desire” would be to impeach President Donald Trump, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said investigations had “already started” and that some of the investigation leads to the “possibility of impeachment.”

Partial transcript as follows:

BALDWIN: You are making news today saying Donald Trump’s actions are leading himself to possible impeachment. Explain to me why you are going there two weeks into his presidency.

WATERS:  First of all, just let me say these are not normal times. We have a president who is creating chaos and division. So many questions about his conflict of interest. Lies about whether or not he separated himself from the businesses he claimed he would separate himself from. Not showing his tax returns. Putting his arms around Putin, defending Putin, working with the Kremlin. I want to know, and a lot of people want to know was there collusion between Putin and the Kremlin and this president as they hacked our DNC and our DCCC and some of us. We want to know how deep does that go.

BALDWIN: Congresswoman, what’s the evidence. forgive me for jumping in, but what is the evidence that would lead to impeachment here?

WATERS: That’s what I’m telling you. We have investigations that have already started. There is an investigation in the Senate Intelligence yes, in the House you have investigations going on in several places in several ways. This man is questionable. and what I’m saying is, because we are suspicious, many of us about who he is, where he came from, what his actions are and all of his conflicts and this business of loving Putin and the Kremlin so much, we have to find out more about him. And some of that I think leads to the possibility of impeachment. And I think that’s legitimate to say given everything we know at this point.

BALDWIN: I understand on the investigation. But you know, you do have to find evidence before using such a huge word, such a tremendous word as the I word, the I in impeachment.

WATERS: No, no, no. no, no, no. Let me tell you what you are saying is this. You are saying that you don’t ordinarily hear members of Congress who would do what I’m doing, who began to talk about impeachment because they would fear that perhaps they were not going to get the information other people would think they are acting too hastily.

This mountain gorilla is not normal, she is mentally deranged. Why can't she come up missing?

Don't like blacks much do you? Would you like to be part of a lynch mob to take her out?

A conservative curmudgeon

Matter of fact.......since the start of Black Lives Matter....a LOT of people don't.  And I'll be damned if you're going to make me feel guilty about it.  They want to be ignorant....so be it.  They've got nobody to blame but themselves for HOW they're seen.

You can climb down off the cross Roberto..................somebody needs the wood.

Waters is all wet  and-and don't care about the color community/ Give president Trump time and He will do more for color people and the nation as a  whole than three passed presidents.

Impeachment must come from the House which is Republican.  SO no possibility without a really really strong set of evidence and then conviction would require either a 60 senators or a 75% majority.  She must as above have head up A$$  

She's under the illusion that the Democrats will win the mid-term elections. But more likely with their inane intransigence they'll lose seats in both Houses.

This idiot just told on herself, she is telling Mr Baldwin what he is saying, i think he already knows what he is saying, but for her to tell him what he said gives the impression that his opinion does'nt matter at all, that there is only one way of thinking, and that's her way, witch indicates a desire to CONTROL another persons way of thinking, and CONTROL, is what that the democratic party needs to implement the n.w.o. under a world wide socialist Gov'nt, and Trump is standing in there way, the democratic party has proven once again that it is running scared and desperate, and needs to be put out of our misery, VOTE THEM OUT!!

Govt should create a atmosphere conducive to people's choice to make their own prosperity otherwise govt needs to get out of the way. I commend Trump for wanting to eliminate so much of the regulations that strangle a capitalist economy, that has always been the agenda of the left, strangle the economy load it down with regulation , ship the jobs out, tax the people to death and make them dependent on govt. To hell with that kind of govt, that's not the Republic for which you and I stand.

You're right. We need to keep in mind Waters was one of the representatives who called for the nationalization of the oil refining industry. The last time I checked that was a communist idea.

Here's another example of a Communist who is seeing their Commie dream slipping through their fingers. The more they talk, the more they expose themselves as scared little children who are being forced to pull their head out of the clouds and start living in reality.

God Bless Donald Trump and God Bless America!

My mom basicly just said same thing! "Good thing God is in control" I read Psalm 37(daily) for most of Obama's term, and prayed for that promise, the wicked WOULD eventually be exposed! Prayer works, and we can't stop now! Evil is rearing it's ugly head more now!

Yesssss, please GO AWAY DUMMY!!!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
