Mad Maxine Waters is still on her Impeach 45 tour across America in hopes she might finally gather a storm.
In an address to the Congressional Black Caucus this week, she urged members to join her rather than simply give lip service to the effort.
That’s when she dropped the bomb: “Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is.
There is no law that dictates impeachment. What the Constitution says is ‘high crimes and misdemeanors,’ and we define that.”
So basically, according to Maxine, Congress can impeach anyone for any reason it chooses.
That’s pretty much the definition of a banana republic, isn’t it?
Here’s more from CNSNews…
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who previously has called for the impeachment of Donald Trump, on Thursday told a Congressional Black Caucus Town Hall on Civil Rights that she expects other members of the black community to back her up:
“Don’t come here and tell me, ‘Maxine, you keep on doing what you do.’ But when you gonna give me some support?” she asked. “How many of you in your organizations have said, ‘Impeach 45’ ?”
Waters urged the crowd not to get hung up on what law to invoke in the impeachment process:
Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is. There is no law that dictates impeachment. What the Constitution says is “high crimes and misdemeanors,” and we define that.
Bill Clinton got impeached because he lied. Here you have a president, who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy. Here you have a president who obstructed justice. And here you have a president who lies every day.
Thank God that the special counsel is beginning to connect the dots — and understand Facebook’s role in it and social media’s role in it. When is the black community going to say, ‘Impeach him’? It’s time to go after him. I don’t hear you!
