MSNBC’s Craig Melvin asked Maxine Waters what the grounds are for impeaching Donald Trump after she tweeted yet again that he should be impeached.
She responded with conjecture as usual. “The question becomes was there colluding? Did this campaign — did this president and his campaign and/or allies — collude with the Russians in doing the hacking and undermining our democracy?” she asked. “[W]e have enough information that leads us to, I think, a credible investigation to find out whether or not there was collusion, and whether or not an oil deal is involved in all of this.”
Melvin asked Waters if lawmakers should wait for all the facts to come out before claiming Trump committed impeachable offenses.
“I have not called for impeachment,” Waters lied.
A somewhat amused Melvin read her Tuesday tweet calling for impeachment. He had already read it earlier.
“You said, ‘I’m going to fight every day until he’s impeached!’ That’s what you tweeted,” Melvin said.
The President is a liar, his actions are contemptible, & I’m going to fight everyday until he’s impeached.
