Rep. Maxine Waters, D.-Calif., promised her supporters this week that she is still very much devoted to pursuing impeachment against president Trump.
“So, some people say, ‘How dare her come out and say impeach him? She doesn’t know enough about him to talk about impeaching him.’ But now the American people, whether they say it or not, they know that this man is dangerous,” Waters said Tuesday at Woman’s National Democratic Club dinner. “That, certainly, he conspired with the Kremlin and with the oligarchs of Russia.”
Waters continued, claiming America cannot allow for its allies to think Trump was elected legitimately.
“But guess what? They are going to believe it when we get rid of him,” Waters told her audience.
Attorney General William Barr confirmed that Mueller’s team found no collusion or that the members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.
Barr also said the special investigation could not find enough evidence “to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.”
Maxine Waters, however, says she does not trust Barr.
“I know that you are all worried about the special counsel and the fact that we have a report that has been described to us in a letter by the attorney general. We don’t know what’s in the report yet, and we’re going to demand it,” the congresswoman said.
Waters added that she would try to subpoena the full Mueller report, saying she hopes it will lead eventually to the president’s impeachment.
“While there’s still those that think he’ll never be impeached, you never know,” she said. “So, let me leave you with this: Despite the fact that we haven’t gotten the report yet, and we’re going after it, and it may be subpoenaed, that it is being worked on. I’m still saying impeach 45.”
Waters concluded her speech, leaving the podium to cheers of “Impeach 45! Impeach 45!”
