One of Congress’ most boisterous and shrill lawmakers provided reporters on Monday, with her latest diatribe against President Donald Trump. Besides uttering an impeachment threat, she also claimed that Russia’s toughguy President Vladimir Putin invaded Korea without any condemnation by Trump.
California’s longtime congresswoman, Rep. Maxine Waters, continued her attacks on President Trump’s actions and his diplomacy and revived her impeachment threats during House Democrats’ Monday morning press conference with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi standing nearby smiling.
Waters then appeared to backtrack when she answered a reporter’s question during the press conference. She claimed she was not personally calling for impeachment. “I have not called for his impeachment. The statement I made was a statement in response to questions and pleas that I’m getting from many citizens across this country. What are we going to do?” said the far-left congresswoman.
“How can a president, who is acting in the manner that he is acting, whether he is talking about the travel ban, the way he is talking Muslims, or whether he’s talking about his relationship to Putin and the Kremlin — knowing that they have hacked our DCCC and DNC and knowing that he is responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in Aleppo — the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea?” Rep. Waters asked rhetorically.
Surprisingly no one — none of the reporters, lawmakers or staffers — corrected Waters by telling her the nation with which Russia is involved is Crimea not Korea. In addition, none of the major news outlets whose reporters attended the information-deficient briefing carried the full story about Maxine Waters’ big flub, according to former Det. Sid Franes of the NYPD. “This is just one more example of media bias coupled with the out-and-out idiocy of what passes for political discourse these days,” said the former homicide detective.
“I think that he is leading himself into that kind of position where folks begin to ask, ‘what are we going to do?’ and the answer is going to be, eventually, we’ve got to do something about him,” she said. “We cannot continue to have a president who is acting in this manner. It is dangerous to the United States of America.”
Corruption Allegations Disappear
According to press statement by officials at Judicial Watch:
“[A]s a famously corrupt—and seemingly untouchable—congresswoman, Waters is renowned for abusing her power to enrich family members and holds a ranking position on the powerful House committee that oversees the nation’s financial services industries.
“Even for Washington this is a bit much. Democrats have chosen a scandal-plagued college, veteran Congresswoman Maxine Waters, to be the ranking member on the House Financial Services Committee despite her many transgressions over the years.”
“It is astounding how such a woman can be so ignorant of facts yet is so cunning as to be invulnerable to criminal investigations, prosecutions, news media scrutiny and the like. In fact, the news media actually tries to suppress bad news about her and treat her as if she were a black Margaret Thatcher,” said a former police officer, now working as a corporate security investigator, Iris Aquino.
The Judicial Watch probe indicated that: “influential congresswoman has helped family members make more than $1 million through business ventures with companies and causes that she has helped, according to her hometown newspaper.”
A few years ago Waters was investigated by the House Ethics Committee for steering $12 million in federal bailout funds to a failing Massachusetts bank (that subsequently got shut down by the government) in which she and her board member husband held shares. Read all about it in Waters’ profile on Judicial Watch’s 2011 “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.” list.
Waters has also come under fire for skirting federal elections rules with a shady fundraising gimmick that allows her to receive unlimited amounts of donations from certain contributors. For years the veteran Los Angeles lawmaker has raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars in short periods of time by selling her endorsement to other politicians and political causes for as much as $45,000 a pop instead of raising most of her campaign funds from individuals and political action committees.
