In a stunning admission, Rep. Maxine Waters has claimed that impeachment of President Trump has “never been discussed” as a serious strategy among Democrats.
Waters entire public profile has been expanded within the resistance party because of her repeated unhinged calls for harassment of Trump officials as well as the President’s impeachment.
It seems as if her hopes and dreams, however, have been significantly dashed following the release of findings in the special counsel’s investigation into Russian collusion. Poor Maxine must have seen that there was no collusion, no evidence of obstruction, and no more indictments coming, even for process crimes as the others have seen, and is now markedly changing her tune.
Now, according to Politico, she wants to focus on getting her hands on the report itself. Interesting strategy, trying to get facts first and then making a determination. Too little, too late.
“I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report,” Waters said. “[Impeachment has] never been discussed as a strategy for this caucus. It’s only a few of us.”
Unfortunately, many Members of Congress whisper the President should be impeached but have not supported my call for impeachment. Only a few of us dare to continue to urge both Dems and Repubs to impeach this dangerous president. I will keep trying. The public needs to demand!

Reality must have set in slowly for Waters who, immediately after the findings of the Mueller report were made available to Congress by Attorney General William Barr declared, “This is not the end of anything!”
Insisted There Was Collusion
Waters is one of many Democrats currently feasting on crow in the wake of the Mueller report findings. She, like many in her party, insisted the investigation would lead to findings of collusion and many other crimes.
“Here you have a president who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy,” Waters claimed in September of 2017.
She went on to suggest Mueller’s report would “lead right to, not only collusion, obstruction of justice, money laundering.”
The woman who used the phrase “Impeach 45!” as her calling card to a resistance movement that apparently took her seriously is now claiming it’s never been discussed. How rich.

“I know my colleagues get very upset. Some get afraid when I say ‘impeachment,'” she said during a eulogy.
“When I get through with Donald Trump, he’s going to wish he had been impeached!” Waters yelled, pointing a disdainful finger at those in mourning over the loss of their friend or family member.
“I feel it very deeply — I am so offended by him and I love my people so much I’m not gonna put up with it,” she finished. “I’m gonna say ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’ ‘Impeach 45 everyday,’ ‘Impeach 45 everyday!'”
She would later tell Americans to take to the streets to spread her message.
“I think Americans should be out in the streets screaming to the top of their voice,” she said in an interview with CNBC. “Do something. Make something happen.”
While Maxine is pretending impeachment has never been discussed, her colleague Rep. Rashida Tlaib is currently lobbying for support for a resolution to investigate President Trump for impeachable offenses. They just lie and lie.
