Maxine Waters, Who Denied Calling for Trump’s Impeachment, Again Calls for Trump’s Impeachment

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) spoke to the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday and continued to deny that she has called for President Trump’s impeachment. However, at the same event, Waters yet again called for Trump’s impeachment.

Earlier that day, Waters denied that she ever called for Trump to be impeached, despite the mountain of evidence that contradicts her claim, during an interview with MSNBC’s Craig Melvin.

People were quick to point out the numerous times that Waters had called for Trump’s impeachment, something Waters addressed at the Westchester-Playa Democratic Club.

“You have the right-wing folks on the internet who are trying to confuse you, and I understand that they have something up tonight that said Maxine Waters is saying she didn’t call for impeachment,” Waters told the crowd.

Waters then explained to the crowd that she’s not calling for Trump’s impeachment because she doesn’t like him, but because she thinks there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians. When that is proven, Waters claims, then Trump should be impeached.

This cleanup attempt might have proven successful if Waters hadn’t told the very same crowd that if ‘we impeach [Trump]’ then his border wall will not be built.

Waters has seen her national profile rise since she started calling for Trump’s impeachment, but now it seems she is trying to distance herself from these comments, with little success.
