FAKE NEWS ALERT: Maxine Waters Claims She Has Never Called for Trump’s Impeachment

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) falsely claimed that she has never called for President Trump to be impeached during an interview on MSNBC on Tuesday.

MSNBC’s Craig Melvin asked Waters to name what impeachable offenses Trump has committed, after Waters had tweeted earlier in the day, “The President is a liar, his actions are contemptible, & I’m going to fight everyday until he’s impeached.”

Waters could not name an impeachable offense that President Trump has committed. Instead, Waters discussed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Melvin asked Waters if it would be better for her to wait to call for Trump’s impeachment until all the facts are known.

“I have not called for impeachment,” Waters told Melvin.

Melvin pointed out to Waters that is exactly what she has done with her tweet.

There is also a long list of examples of Waters calling for President Trump to be impeached.

As recently as Saturday, Waters told a crowd in Washington, D.C., “I don’t respect this president. I don’t trust this president. He’s not working in the best interests of the American people … I will fight every day until he is impeached.”

In March, Waters tweeted: “Get ready for impeachment.”

“I hope [Trump’s] not there for four years. I hope that this man and who he is, the way that he has defined himself, the way that he is acting — I am hoping that we are able to reveal all of this. And my greatest desire is to lead him right into impeachment,” Waters said during an interview in February.

It’s blatantly false for Waters to claim that she has never called for President Trump to be impeached, as the mountain of evidence shows.
