Maxine Waters Says Special Counsel Will Deliver: ‘I Have My Hopes for Mueller’
Congresswoman Maxine Waters took on President Trump once again by lambasting his administration over the news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury and issued subpoenas over their investigation into Russia.
In her interview with Morning Joe, Waters said that even though John Kelly has replaced Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff, it won’t make Trump act presidential or change how he has “no real appreciation or understanding for government or public policy.” Waters has called for Trump’s impeachment over the past few months, and she said today that Mueller’s grand jury shows that America is heading for a constitutional crisis.
“We should have moved faster. Our intelligence committees have not moved fast enough, but I have my hopes for Mueller as most people do,” Waters said. “I think he’s going to connect the dots.”
When asked whether the Republican-controlled congress would ever allow Trump to be impeached, Waters said she and her colleagues will stand against Trump as a matter of “patriotism” if it is ever proven that his campaign colluded with Russia.
“I’ve talked with a few quietly and privately, and no, I’ve not heard yet that they’re ready to move, but I have picked up that they are concerned, that they’re uncomfortable. And that even though they’re not at this point saying that they will turn against him and they would support impeachment, I have sensed the uneasiness and I’ve heard the concern.”
