Maxine Waters dreaded this day.
Her controversial past finally caught up with her.
And you won’t believe what happened next.
The House Ethics Committee smacked Maxine Waters with three charges relating to a bank she helped get TARP bailout money.
This investigation could end her career.
CBS News reports:
The first charge against Waters states she violated a House rule that members must “behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.” Waters should have instructed her chief of staff to stop assisting OneUnited once it became clear she should not be involved in helping the bank, but she failed to do so, the charges state.
Her staff’s “continued involvement in assisting OneUnited created an appearance that [Waters] was taking official action for [Waters’] personal benefit, which did not reflect creditably on the House,” the charges state.
Waters was also charged with violating the “spirit” of the House rule that prohibits a member from receiving compensation for exerting improper influence from her position in Congress. Waters’ husband’s investments in OneUnited constituted compensation, according to the charges.
The congresswoman was also charged with violating the Code of Ethics for Government Service.
Waters attracted national attention when she demanded liberal terrorists harass Trump officials in public.
The California Democrat also put herself front and center in the impeachment debate.
She blasted Trump as an ethically and morally comprised tyrant who needed to be run from office.
But now the irony is Waters’ own personal corruption may do her in.
