Is all the impeachment talk boomeranging on Maxine Waters?
A constituent filmed an encounter with the California Congresswoman on Monday and the two clashed before Waters declared that a member of Congress couldn’t be impeached.
The constituent, who was unnamed in the video that was posted by YouTube user Melani Bell, began by telling Waters that she’s been calling her office and sending her emails for “five minutes of your time.”
“You’re one of 700,000,” Waters replied, referring to the number of constituents she has.
The constituent wanted to complain to Waters about her treatment of President Trump.
“I can’t stand him,” Waters said, cutting her off. “He’s the most horrible man I’ve ever seen in my life.”
“I love my president,” the woman replied.
“I’m glad you do,” Waters said.
When the woman wanted to know why Waters wouldn’t also represent her views in Washington, Waters said, “Your president is a dishonorable, lying man,” adding that he “lies every day.”
Water said Trump is “in bed” with Putin and the Kremlin and “the oligarchs.”
“They’re going to take us down!” she declared.
When the constituent compared Trump’s words to Bill Clinton’s actions, Waters snapped, “I don’t care about Clinton! Listen, I’m going to work every day until I get him impeached.”
“I’m going to work every day to make sure that he isn’t impeached and that you’re impeached,” the constituent said.
“You can’t impeach a member of Congress!” Waters shot back. “No, you cannot impeach a member of Congress,” she said again before her staff escorted her away from the woman.
Earlier this month, LA street artist Sabo posted signs near Waters’ town hall meeting, calling for her impeachment:
