Representative Maxine Waters has been a champion of calls for Trump’s impeachment, but it appears the congresswoman from California has had a change of heart.
According to The Daily Wire:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is the latest in a line of Democrats to admit, sadly, that there’s no longer any point in pursuing impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Waters, who made a name for herself leading the anti-Trump “Resistance” in Congress, even to the point of encouraging her supporters to “confront” members of the Trump administration whenever they saw them out and about in public, and repeatedly calling for impeachment hearings against Trump even before Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation had concluded, told Politico that her priorities have now changed.
“I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report,” Waters told the Washington, D.C. outlet.
Strangely, though, she seemed to admit that, even before Mueller released his findings, booting the president from office was nothing more than a pipe dream.
Maxine will surely take back up the impeachment push if she sees any hope, but for now, it looks like she is backing down.
