Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said that House Democrats are waiting “on our special counsel, Mr. [Robert] Mueller, to give them permission” to impeach President Trump during an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood on Friday.

Harwood asked Waters on his podcast, “Speakeasy,” about her early support for impeaching Trump and whether she thought House Democrats would impeach the president even if it is clear that Senate Republicans wouldn’t join them.

“No, I don’t know that. I don’t know that an impeachment resolution will ever be taken up. I hope so. I believe it should be, but I don’t know that,” Waters said.

“You’re not predicting that,” Harwood then asked Waters.

“No, I’m not predicting that. I don’t know that that will happen, you’re right,” Waters said.

“Democrats have been very cautious. Everybody’s waiting on our special counsel, Mr. Mueller, to give them permission to go for it,” Waters continued. “I’m not waiting (for) permission to say what I really feel and what I understand about this president and how he has defined himself right before our very eyes.”
