Washington Free Beacon -- Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) found herself getting fact-checked in the middle of her MSNBC interview on Tuesday when she claimed she has never called for the impeachment of President Trump.
She Has Never Called For Trump To Be Impeached
Waters is a fervent critic of Trump, and she tweeted as recently as Tuesday morning that she would "fight everyday until he's impeached." MSNBC host Craig Melvin read the tweet out at the beginning of their interview and asked Waters what those impeachable offenses were.
Waters said there were questions about whether Trump and the Russian government colluded to defeat Hillary Clinton, but as she listed her accusations against various members of Trump's Cabinet, Melvin tried to cut in.
"You have enough information that leads us to, I think, a credible investigation to find out whether or not there was collusion, and whether or not an oil deal is involved in all of this," Waters said.
"You just started that by saying, ‘The question becomes,'" Melvin said. "Should we wait to call for impeachment until we have the answers to that question or some of the questions?"
"I have not called for impeachment," she said.
Melvin sounded like he was in disbelief.
"You said I'm going to fight every day until he's impeached! That's what you tweeted," Melvin said.
"Yeah, but here's what I've said," Waters responded. "I've said that we need the information. We need to connect the dots. We need the facts in order to do the impeachment, and I'm going to work every day to try and help get those facts and to reveal them to the republic, to our public, until of course impeachment [has] taken place."
As Waters was talking, MSNBC showed a screenshot of her tweet in which she had called for Trump's impeachment that morning. Melvin then moved on to another subject.
Waters has repeatedly called for Trump's impeachment since he took office.
Waters even led an "impeach 45" chant at a Tax Day rally in Washington, D.C. over the weekend.
Blog Author's Comments: In an attempt to explain Maxine Waters views and actions, this often happens in advanced cases of Alzheimer's. Let's just hope for everyone's sake she is institutionalized soon. Maxine Waters is an elected official of the government of the United States of America, and the President is also an elected official of the government of the United States of America. She should be arrested and tried for treason for attempting to undermine the U.S. government, along with many more Democrats and a few members that belong to the Republican Party. But, she would get out of any charges by reason of "senility". Waters is simply racist, ignorant, and uncouth.
Don't attempt to sell more craziness here, Maxine. We already know that within the Democratic Party they are all stocked up. There's crazy, there's insane, and then there's Maxine. I also believe there is another reason for her actions, her wig may be too tight and could be restricting the blood flow to her brain. In any case Waters is just another example of what has happened within the Democratic Party and to the voters in California who continue to send her to Washington. Waters has been a 'never Trumper' since the night that the election was called for the winner Donald J. Trump. She is still in denial and believes that their candidate Hillary Clinton had the election stolen from her and the Democratic Party. Nothing will ever change this pathetic person's mind.
