Maxine Waters was the earliest and loudest voice calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Every action she’s taken since the midterm elections has been designed to force a confrontation over removing President Trump from office.
And now Maxine Waters scored this victory that has Donald Trump seeing red.
Maxine Waters is one of several Democrat committee chairs heading up fishing expeditions into Donald Trump’s personal finances.
Waters chairs the House Financial Services Committee and fired off a batch of subpoenas to the financial institutions that had done business with Donald Trump and the Trump Organization to “investigate” the fake news allegation that the President’s business is a front for an international money laundering operation.
But while the President’s lawyers filed motions to block the subpoenas, several of the financial institutions involved have already turned over their documents.
TD Bank and Wells Fargo complied with the Democrats subpoena in secret.
Waters and her fellow anti-Trump fanatics also demanded documents from Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Canada and Toronto-Dominion Bank, and JP Morgan Chase.
Waters recently appeared on MSNBC’s “Hardball” where host Chris Matthews asked if Democrats had found anything after scouring through thousands of Trump’s personal financial documents.
The California Congresswoman told Matthews that “we don’t have information to share with you at this time about what we’ve learned from the documents.”
When Waters issued the subpoenas in April, she promised a wide-ranging witch hunt that was based on no specific facts or allegations.
“The potential use of the U.S. financial system for illicit purposes is a very serious concern,” Waters declared.
“The Financial Services Committee is exploring these matters, including as they may involve the President and his associates, as thoroughly as possible pursuant to its oversight authority, and will follow the facts wherever they may lead us.”
The Democrats are adopting the old Soviet tactic under Stalin where you investigate your enemies first, then decide what crime they’ve committed.
In America, there must be a specific charge backed up by probable cause in order to investigate a citizen—and they still receive the presumption of innocence until proven guilty.
But there is no such due process or respect for American values in Maxine Waters’ investigations.
Waters is staging an un-American and partisan coup.
However, their impeachment push could backfire.
A recent Monmouth University poll found that 52 percent of Americans want Congress to move on to other issues now that the Mueller report is out.
Just 41 percent want Congress to focus on new investigations into Trump.
And impeachment is even less popular.
A brand new Harvard CAPS/Harris poll found 65 percent of respondents oppose impeachment proceedings.
The problem for Nancy Pelosi is that most Democrats – led by Maxine Waters – hate President Trump and are out for blood.
So every day that goes by, the Democrats inch ever closer to a disastrous impeachment inquiry.
