"This president, in my estimation has done everything possible to certainly be eligible for impeachment."

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that House Democrats should start impeachment proceedings against President Trump immediately when they take control of the House of Representatives during an interview with MSNBC on Sunday.

MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart asked Waters at what point she thinks the House should begin impeachment proceedings against Trump. Capehart pointed out that Democrats will be in the majority in the House and that Waters had been advocating for Trump’s impeachment for years.

Waters started off by bashing House Republicans for not pursuing impeachment against Trump.

“This president, in my estimation, has done everything possible to certainly be eligible for impeachment,” Waters said. “I really do think it should be started.”

“There have been a couple of attempts certainly that did not win support because the Republicans were in charge of both houses. But now I do believe that impeachment should begin,” Waters said.

Waters then voiced objection to critics who have said that impeachment would be too disruptive, telling Capehart that House Democrats can “walk and chew gum at the same time.”

“This criminal must be brought up by the Congress of the United States for impeachment, and if we don’t do it, we are derelict in our duty,” Waters added.
