Rep. Maxine Waters Is Claiming She Has Not Called For Trump's Impeachment

Congresswoman Maxine Waters is sending mixed messages about whether she thinks President Trump should be removed from office, according to Newsmax.

On Saturday, the California Democrat joined other protesters in Washington, D.C., in demanding that Trump release his past income-tax returns. The demonstration, which organizers scheduled to coincide with Tuesday’s tax-filing deadline, was one of dozens that took place across the country. Waters could be seen on video leading the crowd in chanting “Impeach 45,” a reference to the 45th president of the United States. Early Tuesday morning, she tweeted: “The president is a liar. His actions are contemptible & I’m going to fight every day until he’s impeached.”

However, later in the day, Waters told MSNBC: “I have not called for impeachment. Here’s what I’ve said. I’ve said that we need the information, we need to connect the dots, we need the facts in order to do the impeachment. And I’m going to work every day to try and help get those facts and to reveal them … to our public until, of course, impeachment has taken place.”

Some of Trump’s critics suggest he is vulnerable to being forced out of power because of his alleged violation of a clause in the Constitution that prohibits presidents from receiving payments from other countries. Trump profits from foreign officials and their entourages when they visit his hotels and resorts. There may be additional conflicts of interest between Trump’s official duties and his sprawling international business empire, from which he has refused to divest.

The administration’s links to Russia also could bring down the president, according to Waters. In the MSNBC interview, she advocated a full investigation of the scandal. Multiple members of the Trump campaign and administration have had contacts with the Russian government. Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned after their Russian connections were revealed. U.S. intelligence agencies accuse Russian leader Vladimir Putin of ordering last year’s cyberattacks on computers used by Democratic National Committee officials and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman.
