It should come as no surprise to anyone living outside of a cave in Kabul that democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters would be in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump; after all, she has been one of the Commander in Chief’s most vocal critics as of late.
This is the same legislator who attempted to coerce her progressive constituency to confront conservatives in the streets, form mobs, and make their political rivals feel “unwelcome”. This push toward radicalization garnered Waters heaps of admonishment from political observers, but the enthusiastic reaction of her base allowed her to ignore those calls for renewed tact.
Now, as the latest inquisition appears to be beginning in earnest, Waters believes that there is already enough evidence to move forward with a formal introduction of the articles of impeachment.
CNN's @ChrisCuomo: "Do you think you know enough at this point, congresswoman, to say there is enough here for articles of impeachment?"

Of course, this allegation flies directly in the face of the President’s repeated assertions that he has done nothing improper in the slightest.
Furthermore, Trump and the White House have worked tirelessly to promote transparency during these trying times, cooperating with investigators and releasing whatever documents have been requested by congressional democrats so far.
Waters herself was unable to spin this reality during her interview with Cuomo.
“The president himself admitted that he had a telephone conversation with the president of Ukraine. He also said he talked to him about Biden. And I believe that in that conversation, he did exactly what is being said about the conversation by others — that he was asking this president [Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine] to help him with the kind of investigation that would lead into dirt about Biden.”
For now, the impeachment delusion will continue.
