Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA – what a surprise) is now claiming she has never called for Donald Trump to be impeached.
Here is the relevant transcript from her interview, on Tuesday, with MSNBC’s Craig Melvin:
Melvin: “You just started that by saying the question becomes, should we wait to call for impeachment until we have the answers to have that question…”
Waters: “Well, I have not…”
Melvin: “– or some of the questions.”
Waters: “– I have not called for impeachment.”
Melvin: “You said, ‘I’m going to fight every day until he’s impeached.’ That’s what you tweeted.”
Waters: “Yes, but here’s what I’ve said. Here’s what I’ve said. 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 is taking place.”
Waters, as anyone who is even marginally aware of what she is talking about these days (this may or may not include Waters herself), has ongoingly called for Donald Trump to be impeached since he became President. Over and over again.
In fact, just hours before her interview with Mr. Melvin, she tweeted this:
The President is a liar, his actions are contemptible, & I’m going to fight everyday until he’s impeached.
Is that a maybe to you? Unambiguous in any way?
If so, how about the week before,when the told the Los Angeles Press Club:
“I want this president impeached.”
Or when she led a group of likeminded Trump haters in the chant of “Impeach 45! Impeach 45! Impeach 45!”
There are at least a dozen other instances on record, but I think the point has been made pretty plainly.
Maxine Waters is an embarrassment to her party and her country. She has been for a long time. She provides virtually nothing of value to her constituents – which, sad to say, has not prevented them from robotically re-electing her time after time after time.
Add being either a liar about her calls for Trump’s impeachment – or, if you prefer, an incompetent and/or a delusionary, who forgets what she says after every time she says it – to the résumé.
