Maxine Waters is leading the charge to impeach Donald Trump.
Many Democrats thought she was waiting for Robert Mueller to drop his report before making her move.
But Waters said the one thing about Mueller and his investigation that no one saw coming.
Nancy Pelosi begged Democrats to hold off on impeachment until Robert Mueller delivered his report.
However, it became clear that Mueller turned up no evidence of collusion with Russia.
And now Maxine Waters isn’t willing to wait around to see what his report will say.
Waters went on MSNBC and made it clear the Democrat controlled House must take steps to remove Donald Trump from office.
On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters (D-CA) stated that President Trump isn’t acting in the country’s best interests and Americans should rely on Congress and not Special Counsel Robert Mueller to determine whether the president is undercutting the Constitution, acting in the country’s interests, or putting Americans in danger “because he may be compromised in the way that he’s dealing with other countries.”
Waters said, “I believe in the Constitution, and the Constitution gives us the authority and the responsibility to decide whether or not a president is acting in the best interests of this country. This president is not. As far as I’m concerned, he has enough violations, he’s been involved in a lot of activity that we believe needs to be made apparent. And so, I believe that we have everything that it needs to basically impeach him. I believe that. And you’re absolutely right, we’re depending on Mr. Mueller. The American people should be depending on the people that they elected to represent them to determine whether or not this president is undermining the Constitution, whether or not he’s acting in our best interests, and whether or not he’s putting us in danger because he may be compromised in the way that he’s dealing with other countries.”
Waters’ comments will make it nearly impossible for the Democrats to impeach Trump.
She made it clear impeachment is a partisan exercise by the Democrats.
If they are casting aside Mueller and his investigation then they are revealing that this entire exercise was farce that was only intended to provide political cover for the Democrats to nullify the results of the 2016 election.
