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.
Are all the dems as looney as this one? She's not qualified to sit in our government. She needs to be removed for mental health issues.
SERIOUSLY............ Don't some of the absolutely ridiculous comments that have come out of her mouth, and Pelosi, etc................ aren't they PROOF that some of these people really do have MENTAL problems? I'm not kidding.......at what point does someone say....you need to be evaluated ????
EVERYTIME SHE OPENS HER MOUTH, HER HEAD DISAPPEARS...........
JUST LIKE OBONER AND HIS 'BIG MIKE'........
OH? I thought that end was her ass?
Let that JB join Sharpton and leave this country
it is frighting to me that some folks actually voted for her
You can imagine what they are all about-----------nothing but Anarchy!
She is the reason LIBERIA, Africa was created.
WATERS IS A LUNATIC OF ALL LUNATIC and this woman has been in this frame of mind for about 15 years.
I think the 'sedition' laws that apply to the Berkley scum also apply to Maxine Waters.
I cant even reply on this traitor I saw her agenda and hate decades ago.
This bitch should be impeached herself as she is not upholding the Constitution!
