Maxine Waters has led the impeachment bandwagon since last year.
Her mission in Congress is to get rid of Donald Trump.
But she raised eyebrows with this bizarre claim about impeachment.
Maxine Waters reacted in predictable fashion to the fake bombshell that Robert Mueller disagreed with the context of William Barr’s summary of his findings.
Mueller did not dispute the accuracy of anything Barr reported – no collusion and no determination of obstruction of justice – but Mueller was upset with the news coverage of Barr’s announcement.
That was like waiving a red cape in front of a bull for Maxine Waters.
The California Congresswoman went on MSNBC and thundered that Barr should resign or Congress should impeach him.
Tuesday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said in light of the of The Washington Post report that special counsel Robert Mueller told Attorney General William Barr his summary “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the probe, Barr should resign or be impeached.
Waters said, “I think that Barr should resign. If he does not resign, he should be facing impeachment proceedings also. He has abdicated on his responsibility. He’s lied. He has used the very words coming right out of the president’s mouth, ‘no collusion, no collusion, no collusion.’ And made a decision that despite what the counsel put into that report about obstruction of justice, he said he made the decision that he had not obstructed justice. It is outrageous, and he needs to go.”
All of Barr’s statements were truthful and accurate.
Not even Robert Mueller disputes that.
But this leak was designed to breathe new life into the dying push by Democrats to impeach the President.
And Maxine Waters’ reaction was exactly what Mueller hoped it would be.
