Few members of Congress were more disappointed by the outcome of the Mueller Investigation more than Maxine Waters. She can’t let go of the demand for impeachment. She’s still yelling about it to anyone who will listen.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Waters Still Calling For Trump’s Impeachment
Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said that the findings of the Mueller Report will not deter her from calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, during a speech given at a Woman’s National Democratic Club Dinner on Tuesday.
“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. “That, certainly, he conspired with the Kremlin and with the oligarchs of Russia.”
Waters went on to say that the United States’ allies can’t believe Americans elected Trump.
“But guess what? They are going to believe it when we get rid of him,” Waters said.
Although Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report has not yet been released to the public, Waters said she distrusted Attorney General Bill Barr’s summary.
“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,” she said.

Meanwhile, Waters is also defending Jussie Smollett, the actor who perpetrated a race hoax in Chicago.

Maxine Waters on Jussie Smollett: ‘It’s the correct thing that the charges were dropped’
Jussie Smollett has found a defender in Rep. Maxine Waters — the California Democrat says dropping felony charges against the “Empire” actor was the right move.
“It’s the correct thing that the charges were dropped,” Waters said in a Sunday interview with “Extra” at the NAACP Image Awards. Waters was honored with the Chairman’s Award, while Smollett was nominated, but lost, for his work on the Fox series.
“First of all, we probably will never know all of the details. We’ve heard a lot of information,” said Waters. “No one was hurt — that is, physically, killed, shot — he never committed a crime before, he forfeited the bail and it’s this kind of situation where they close the case all over the country every day. I have learned this isn’t unusual.”
Waters is a hypocrite of the highest order.
