Maxine Waters: We need investigation to find evidence to impeach Trump

Maxine Waters: We need investigation to find evidence to impeach Trump

Waters: ‘I have led in talking about impeachment’

Shades of Alice in Wonderland‘s Queen: “sentence first — verdict afterwards.” On Joy Reid’s MSNBC show this morning, Dem Rep. Maxine Waters doubled down on her earlier statement thatmy greatest desire is to lead [President Trump] right into impeachment.”

Asked by Reid on what grounds she would impeach the president, Waters offered no evidence but said “I believe” there’s a connection between Ukraine, Trump, and Russia, and “I think” Trump “colluded” with Putin during the election.

Concluded Waters: “I think that it’s there, we just have to dig deeper, do the investigation and find it.”

Got that? Claim now that there are grounds for impeachment, call for an investigation to find the evidence later.

The interview began with a clip of Waters recently saying that “my greatest desire is to lead [President Trump] right into impeachment.”

MAXINE WATERS: I hope that, you know, this man and who he is, what he’s done, the way that he’s defined himself, the way that he’s acting, I am hoping that we’re able to reveal all of this, and my greatest desire is to lead him right into impeachment.

. . .

JOY REID: And you have gone all the way there, talking —


REID: — using the I-word with Donald Trump about impeachment.


REID: Do you stand by that and what would he be impeached for in your view?

WATERS: Yes, I have led in talking about impeachment. And some people say, well, it’s too early for that. It’s never too early if you understand how dangerous this man really is. I do believe that there is a connection between the Ukraine and Donald Trump and of course Russia. I think that he colluded with Putin during the election and that hacking and everything that took place. I think that it’s there, we just have to dig deeper, do the investigation and find it.

She is evidence Darwin was wrong.

    Darwin mischaracterized the fitness function of a chaotic system.

    For example, normalizing the Planning/abortion of “our Posterity” may not increase the fitness of individuals, but it does increase the fitness of some subset. Something similar with [class] diversity that judges people by the “color of their skin” (e.g. colorful clump of cells) rather than by the “content of their character” (e.g. principles).

    The twilight faith and Pro-Choice quasi-religious/moral philosophy increase fitness, selectively. Caveat emptor.

      Darwin characterized natural selection and much has been erroneously attributed to his name because he was first to d so…For example, there’s nothing natural about social Darwinism, which is what the progressive vision for social evolution is in a nutshell.

Somebody needs to explain to Representative Waters that the Vice President, Mike Pence, becomes President not Mrs Clinton who finished second in the presidential election if President Trump is impeached and convicted

    Right over her pin head.

    DaveGinOly in reply to aloysius9999. | February 13, 2017 at 7:17 pm

    That shouldn’t present a problem for Maxine. She’d just demand an investigation into Pence. He’s white, he’s male, he’s Republican. That’s all the evidence she needs to show probable cause that an investigation should be started.

This is what masquerades as leadership for large segments of American citizens. Wonder why they are doomed as far as advancement? They deserve better!

Bat-shit crazy woman. How this box of rocks got elected is a mystery to me. Oh… never mind.

    Wonder no more. Just look at her “constituents.” Products of the public schools and “black culture” (such as it is), who are so, so, so easily mislead.

    In terms of her self-proclaimed “leadership,” the only marches she’s ever lead are those to Planned Parenthood and the welfare office for “her voters,” and to the money trough for herself.

    puhiawa in reply to Daiwa. | February 12, 2017 at 3:20 pm

    Sure she is crazy. But do not under-estimate her sheer stupidity.

She has a snowball’s chance of accomplishing that.

Waters being from California is close enough for me to say:
I hate that I live in California.
I can’t see it happening, but it would be great if the federal government could refuse emergency funds to California or any California “sanctuary” [should be called “renegade”] city so long as the begging entity spends any of its tax dollars resisting federal immigration laws.
Why send foreign aid to a state that spends its money sabotaging American policy?

Liberals and Progressives are on one of their infamous babyhunts.

Mr. Chairman, we do not have a crisis at Freddie Mac, and in particular at Fannie Mae

Show me the man and I’ll show you the high crime and/or misdemeanor.

maxine – don’t forget that Trump aided Putin in invading Korea.

Trump is living rent free in her head 🙂

Sounds just about right for a true idiot that does not
know the difference between Korea and Crimea!

So what they hate Trump so all is good!

I love how MSNBC has “The Resistance” as an actual banner.


Isn’t it fortunate that we don’t rely on people of this caliber to run things.

    Another Voice in reply to tom swift. | February 13, 2017 at 12:42 pm

    Yet there is an entire Congressional district which thinks otherwise or else there may be grounds there for an investigation for voter fraud.

I wonder why she isn’t challenging Keith Ellison to head the DNC? We may as well plumb the depths of ignorance.

This woman is an ignoramus of immense proportions. The only thing going for her is she’s smarter than the the ignoramuses of even greater proportions who continue to vote for her.

If Richard Pryor was alive, he’d have a hilarious routine on Maxine Waters.

Waters would make quite the concentration camp guard.

    She is an advocate for [class] diversity (i.e. judge people by the “color of their skin”), a proponent of abortion rites (i.e. denying life unworthy), and a political guard at the Planning centers that run the abortion chambers.

LIke a cop saying; ‘we need to detain you for the purpose of finding probable cause to arrest you.’

    Presumption of guilt is a tenet of the Pro-Choice quasi- religious philosophy that, among other things, normalized capital punishment of the wholly innocent without a voice to protest and Arms to resist.

    It’s what they did to Allen Scarsella, and it worked.

    Milhouse in reply to eamonkelly. | February 13, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    Um, no. It’s like Bharara saying “I know evidence exists that De Blasio and Cuomo are both corrupt, so I’ll look for it, and when I find it I’ll take them down”.

Maxine Waters: We need investigation to find evidence to impeach Trump

Stick arrow in wall. Draw target around it. Declare bullseye.

    Two guys in a boat having a great day fishing. One says to the other, “We need to do something so we can find this spot again.” The second man takes a marker and draws an “X” on the side of the boat. “There,” he says.

    First guy says, with obvious disdain, “That won’t work.”

    “Why not?”

    “The next time we’re here, we may not get to rent the same boat.”

What a waste of perfectly good oxygen.

    DaveGinOly in reply to bobtuba. | February 13, 2017 at 7:23 pm

    Actually, not taking in sufficient quantities of oxygen would account for the brain damage she so obviously suffers from. Somebody get her an oxygen tank! She’s not getting her fair share.

Take a look at satirist ‘Scooter Van Neuter’s’ hilarious rendition of Waters (and Pelosi and Lee):

Nice to see Maxine has moved on…

She takes all the fun out of creating: “She is so dumb….” jokes. Because most of them are true.

Totally corrupt..

As a congressional ethics panel prepares to try Maxine Waters for steering federal funds to her husband’s failing bank, a newspaper reports that the veteran California lawmaker is embroiled in a separate corruption scandal involving her beloved hubby.
Citing federal records, the story says that a powerful lobbyist paid Waters’ banker husband (Sidney Williams) $15,000 in “consulting fees” as she co-sponsored a law aimed at saving a business that was among the lobbyist’s top clients. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had determined that the real estate finance firm and others like it were “scams” and the congresswoman’s measure would have overturned a federal ban that would have allowed the shady enterprises to keep raking in lucrative profits.
For years the firms acted as a middleman to help sellers finance down payments so that low-income buyers could qualify for mortgages insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA). The lobbyist who paid Waters’ husband represented the nation’s largest such middleman (Sacrament-based Nehemiah Corp.), which stood to lose hundreds of millions of dollars if the ban wasn’t reversed by friendly lawmakers like Waters.

This sort of loony thinking has long been a mainstay of Democrats in power. Here’s Tom Foley, Former Speaker of the House, from back in the day:

“The nature of the evidence is irrelevant; it’s the seriousness of the charge that matters.”

Funny I thought it was evidence, investigation, impeachment. Not, investigation, evidence, impeachment.

    It is like the activist who said of the Baltimore 6 in the Freddie Gray fiasco, ” We need to charge them , fire them , take their pensions and then investigate them “

Perhaps, we need to consider the “e-word”


I don’t know what to think about this.

If she’s really this stupid—like, Barbara Boxer stupid, or Cher stupid—that’s funny; in the same sense that a really fat person falling slowly out of one of those motorized carts at Walmart is funny.

If she’s exhibiting an advanced progressive dementia, that’s not so much funny as just depressing.

But if a current member of the US Legislature is actually channeling Lavrenty Beria and his infamous show me the man and I’ll find you the crime, that’s genuinely alarming.

    Another Voice in reply to tom swift. | February 13, 2017 at 12:53 pm

    “that’s genuinely alarming.”

    Double down on “alarming” when you see Waters standing front center with Pelosi and Schumer having her back..bat-sh#t crazy all of them. They know they have the inside on the 19th district to lay down their agenda.

    DaveGinOly in reply to tom swift. | February 13, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    Why is it “either or”? Couldn’t it be both? She’s losing her mind and she’s serious. However, with a record like hers, one, the other, or both are all just as likely.

LOL… this is simply more evidence of liberal insanity… and their absolute refusal to comply with reality. We have a lawless insurrection on our hands… time to arrest them, try them strip their citizenship from them and deport them. Any questions???

When I’m down and feeling out
I remember Maxine has a gynecologist
And I want to stand and shout
It’s not me, I’m a proctologist

“I think that it’s there, we just have to dig deeper, do the investigation and find it.”

That sounds completely reasonable to me. After all, it’s how we all thought about 0bama and the IRS scandal, Fast & Furious, etc., and about Clinton and Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, etc. We all thought the wrongdoing had happened, and the evidence was there to be found, it was just a matter of finding it so it could be acted on. And if conclusive evidence had been found for what we still believe 0bama did, e.g. plotting Fast & Furious in order to create support for restrictions, or directing the IRS shenanigans, it could have been used to impeach him. But the layers of obfuscation worked, and nothing was ever found to prove his direct involvement in these things. That doesn’t mean we were wrong, just that we can’t prove it.

That’s what Waters is saying about Trump; that she’s sure he’s done wrong, and the evidence is there to be found, and if it is found he can be impeached. OK, go find it and we’ll talk.

    ConradCA in reply to Milhouse. | February 19, 2017 at 4:45 pm

    There is no evidence that trump did anything wrong. With Tyrant Obama the Liar and HillRy their was plenty of evidence of wrong doing, of criminality

      Milhouse in reply to ConradCA. | February 23, 2017 at 12:00 am

      There’s no conclusive evidence Trump did anything wrong; but there’s no conclusive evidence 0bama did anything wrong either. It seems very likely, but he successfully avoided having it proven while it was possible to do anything about it. So if Waters wants to look for evidence of wrongdoing by Trump, let her. I don’t think she’ll find any, but if she does then I’m sure honest Republicans will follow it where it leads, unlike Democrats who would never impeach one of their own no matter what.
