Yesterday Democrat Rep Maxine Waters from California called for impeachment hearings during an appearance on “Hardball” with Chris Matthews. During the interview, Waters stated that if collusion between the Russian’s and the Trump Campaign is proven Trump should be impeached. She also stated that if the rhetoric Mr. Trump used during the campaign came from information disclosed in the DNC hack, it may also be impeachable. Rep. Waters said:
“If we discover that Donald Trump or his advocates played a role to help provide strategy — if they’re the ones who came up with ‘Crooked Hillary,’ if they’re the ones who came up with, ‘she’s ill, something’s wrong with her energy,’ and the way that he basically described her during the campaign — I think that is something that would put the question squarely on the table whether or not he should be impeached.”
When asked by “Hardball” host Chris Matthews if she thought an “impeachable offense could happen before one took office?” Waters stated:
“I think that at the point that investigations discover and confirm and can document any of that role in helping to strategize — they had a role in attempting to determine the outcome,”
Matthews then followed up asking:
“Do you believe that Trump is somehow being held hostage by Vladimir Putin because of information on his behavior?” Matthews then asked, despite the fact that the story was revealed to be totally fake last week.
“You know, what we have heard, not in the classified briefing, but in this information about the dossier that has been collected by the man in London on him,” Waters replied, “It talks about some things that appears to ring true based on what we have learned about Trump.”
Here is the complete video.
Rep. Maxine Waters has a point if information is ever discovered that the Trump Administration colluded with a foreign government to win an election, that certainly would be a grounds for impeachment. But, to state that negative propaganda toward another candidate is an impeachable offense is a bit of a reach. On her Twitter feed, Rep. Waters also stated that she will not be attending President-Elects Inauguration ceremony.
