Maxine Watters Still Pushing for Impeachment/Says He Conspired with The Kremlin

Recommended Posts

Maxine Waters has ramped up her President Trump impeachment talks once again.

The California Democrat seemed to be moving on from pushing impeachment when she admitted it was “never discussed” as a realistic strategy among Democrats. But the congresswoman took a very different tone when speaking to supporters this week.

“Some people say, ‘How dare her (sic) come out and say, 'Impeach him? She doesn't know enough about him to talk about impeaching him.' But now the American people, whether they say it or not, they know that this man is dangerous,” Waters told the Woman’s National Democratic Club dinner on Tuesday.

“That certainly, he conspired with the Kremlin and with the oligarchs of Russia.”

Waters, who has frequently attacked President Trump since he took office, went on to question Attorney General William Barr.

“I know that you are all worried about the special counsel and the fact that we have a report that has been described to us in a letter by the attorney general. We don't know what's in the report yet, and we’re going to demand it,” she said, according to the Washington Examiner.

She then wrapped up the speech with a message to her supporters: “Let me leave you with this: Despite the fact that we haven’t gotten the report yet, and we’re going after it, and it may be subpoenaed, that it is being worked on. I’m still saying impeach 45.”

The fiery promise was in stark contrast to her words from just one week ago.

“I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report,” Waters said, in reference to the report by Mueller, the conclusions of which were provided by  Barr.

“[Impeachment has] never been discussed as a strategy for this caucus. It’s only a few of us,” she added, according to Politico.

Many Democrats have expressed reservations about going down the impeachment route, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warning that the process just isn’t worth pursuing.

“I’m not for impeachment,” Pelosi told the Washington Post Magazine. “Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country.”

She added: “And he’s just not worth it.”

Yet some Democrats, most notably U.S. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., are already working behind the scenes to begin hearings and investigations that would pave way for the impeachment.

Each party has a few of the crazy old uncles or aunts that get loose from the homes once in a while and howl at the moon.  No worries, the orderlies will be along soon to re-tie her robe and to get her back to her room in time for Wheel and her pudding snack.

Rep. Maxine Waters of California has been one of the most vocal Democrats on the issue, demanding Trump’s impeachment since nearly the beginning of his presidency.

As chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, Waters has launched her own probe into Trump’s finances and business dealings with plans to look into potential wrongdoing at the Trump Foundation next.

But Waters adopted a notably restrained tone on Monday when responding to reporters about how the summary released over the weekend affects the political calculation around pursuing impeachment.

I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report,” Waters said. “[Impeachment has] never been discussed as a strategy for this caucus. It’s only a few of us.”

- You've posted a report stating that according to one of the leading Democrats the Dems don't view impeachment as a strategy.

The problem of course being that instead of sticking Grandpa back in front of the TV so he could resume yelling at it, the Republicans put him in charge of the nursing home.

It's kind of funny that conservatives want to get into a crazy-off in the same week that the leader of their party claimed that "noise cancer" was a thing and leading Republicans were too scared of their base to say they disagreed with him.

No argument from me.

There’s a lot of nuts loose that need their pudding snack. I accidentally put Rush Limbaugh on for 10 seconds yesterday and it was hard to believe it wasn’t an SNL satire. He said something like “the leftist vegetarian addicts just want their avocados from meh-e-co”

I heard a snip of Hannity doing the same thing. I thought, are supposedly free market conservatives really this supportive of the federal government - really just the President - interfering in and mucking up a whole single commodity and market, just on a whim?

I did like Saul Goodman placing his T.V. adds during Matlock.

 

Maybe its time they remake Marcus Welby, M.D.
