Monday 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.
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!!
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!
