Waters says that once collusion between Trump and Russia is proven, patriots will abandon Trump.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that she was “very pleased” that she generated the conversation about impeaching President Trump during an interview on Friday.
NBC’s Willie Geist asked Waters if she was at a place where she was fine waiting for special counselor Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia to conclude before Waters calls for Trump’s impeachment.
“I’ve always said the dots have to be connected, and I’ve always said that I believe that he was impeachable. And I’m very pleased that I have to generate the conversation about him. I know I was early,” Waters told Geist. “Of course you have to have the information. You have to connect the dots. I think it’s there.”
Waters has been calling for Trump’s impeachment practically since he was inaugurated in January.
The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson followed up by asking Waters if she thought the Republican Congress would ever actually impeach Trump.
“I’m betting on when the dots are connected, and Mueller is able to show collusion, I’m banking on the patriotism of some of the Americans, most of them,” Waters said. “They won’t be able to stand with him if it is proven that they colluded, that they undermined our democracy, interfered with our elections, that they’re going to be able to see that this president is dangerous.”
Waters concluded by saying that she believes “that patriotism will win in the final analysis,” seeming to suggest some type of coup d’etat against the Trump administration if Republicans don’t vote to impeach the president.
