Maxine Waters believes President Trump will be impeached — it’s only a matter of time.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is opting for a no-impeachment “accountability” strategy, but Waters wants to go right for the jugular.
“I have always believed that if the information about this president and his involvement with Russia and Putin and the oligarchs and the Kremlin and if we but look at Mueller’s report and see where he clearly defines that he’s obstructed justice that people will increasingly come to the conclusion that impeachment is inevitable,” Waters said on Friday.
“This president has done everything that one could even think of to be eligible for impeachment and the Constitution basically gives us the power to deal with someone who has not acted in the best interest of this country, who is unfit to be president,” she said.
She added, “I’m hopeful that the American public will support impeachment.”
Host John Berman jumped in with a dose of reality.
“Well, the American public doesn’t. We know that based on the polling,” he said as Waters nodded in agreement.
“We also know that up until now, the House Speaker hasn’t supported impeachment,” he added, as Waters interjected, “That’s right, that’s right.”
Waters denied that she’s “frustrated” House leadership so far has not pursued impeachment.
