Maxine Waters is one of the ring leaders of the Democrats scheme to impeach Donald Trump.
But Waters cannot believe what just happened.
And now Maxine Waters is furious because one word just brought her world crashing down.
In the wake of Robert Mueller turning in his report and announcing to the world that he found no evidence of collusion with Russia and that Trump did not commit any criminal acts of obstruction of justice, Maxine Waters’ crusade to impeach the President has ended in disgrace and failure.
For two years, Waters called for the impeachment of not just Donald Trump, but Vice President Mike Pence.
However, Waters was no backbencher or cable news gadfly.
Waters now serves as the Chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee.
That perch provides her subpoena power and the ability to set the impeachment agenda by holding hearings.
And she expected the new Democrat House majority would follow her lead and barrel headfirst into a massive impeachment inquiry that would end with Donald Trump forced from office.
Things have not gone according to plan.
Since assuming the majority, Democrats are tip-toeing around impeachment talk.
That infuriated Waters, who claimed Democrats “whisper” about impeachment, but won’t act.
“Unfortunately, many Members of Congress whisper the President should be impeached but have not supported my call for impeachment. Only a few of us dare to continue to urge both Dems and Repubs to impeach this dangerous president. I will keep trying. The public needs to demand!” Waters tweeted.
If Waters wants to point blame at anyone, she should direct her ire at Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Pelosi set the tone in an interview with the Washington Post.
The Speaker told the Post she was not for impeachment.
“Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there’s something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don’t think we should go down that path, because it divides the country,” Pelosi whined. “And he’s just not worth it.”
Waters is not the only Democrat up in arms over Pelosi and her leadership team for not diving full bore into an impeachment fight.
Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – who often sets the policy agenda for the Democrat Party – also ranted and raved about the Democrats not pushing ahead with impeaching the President.
“I happen to disagree with that take,” Ocasio-Cortez declared. “Should the [special counsel Robert] Mueller report drop and we see something, I wouldn’t count anything out.”
Ocasio-Cortez and Waters are two of the most radical members of Congress.
They are creatures of the Democrat Party base that hates Donald Trump with every fiber of their being.
Democrats see every Republican that wins an election as illegitimate.
That is especially true of Donald Trump.
The only real “crime” Donald Trump committed was defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
So Waters and other leftists sought to undo the results of the last election.
But they looked ridiculous when Robert Mueller turned in his final report.
Mueller put to bed the conspiracy theories that saboteurs like Waters, Ocasio-Cortez, and their sock puppets in the fake news media relentlessly parroted about Russia collusion.
On that front, Mueller’s report was unambiguous: there was no collusion.
