Maxine Waters let one secret slip about impeaching Donald Trump
Democrats are not going to wait around for Robert Mueller to finish his investigation.
They are getting right down to business in removing Donald Trump from office.
And one closed door meeting revealed Maxine Waters is leading this plan to impeach the President.
During the run up to the election, Democrats claimed they were not rushing in to impeach Donald Trump.
Led by Nancy Pelosi, Democrats told voters that they would wait for Robert Mueller’s report before talking action.
That is no longer operative.
One Democrat member of the House briefed their allies in the media on how the new House Majority – with Maxine Waters’ Financial Services Committee leading the way – will investigate the President’s private business affairs.
Here’s the congressional blueprint, as outlined by the member:
• At least three committees are already involved: The House Intelligence Committee is taking the lead, coordinating with House Financial Services on money-laundering questions and with House Foreign Affairs on Russia.
• Democrats are considering ways to uncover what was said in a Trump private meeting with Putin, “whether that’s subpoenaing the notes or subpoenaing the interpreter or other steps.”
On Trump family finances, the member said the president is “not in a position to draw red lines.”
This new push by the Democrats makes one thing crystal clear: Democrats and the media no longer believe Robert Mueller will find Donald Trump committed any impeachable offenses.
Mueller’s report – if he even issues one – will conclude there was no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.
That leaves Democrats in a bind.
They want to remove Trump, but they were counting on Mueller.
Now that Mueller failed, the Democrats – led by Maxine Waters – will take matters into their own hands.
