According to Congresswoman Maxine Waters, one telephone conversation between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who “is continuing to advance into Korea,” is enough for impeachment of Trump.
On Wednesday, speaking to reporters, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a member of the US Democratic Party and a representative for California’s 43rd congressional district, tried to find a reason for impeachment of US President Donald Trump.
According to Waters, the fact that Trump has been “wrapping his arms around” (had one phone call with) Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has invaded… Korea, is an enough reason for such a move.
Obviously, Mrs. Waters just sees no difference between Korea and Crimea, about which she wanted to mention. What is the difference indeed, besides spellings, cultures and parts of the world?
“How can a president who is acting the manner he is acting – whether he’s talking about the travel ban, the way he’s targeted Muslims, or whether he’s talking about his relationship to Putin and the Kremlin, and knowing that they have hacked our [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee] and the [Democratic National Committee],” Waters said.
“And knowing that he’s responsible for supplying the bombs that killed innocent children and families in, um, in, um,” she said, forgetting the name, before someone behind her murmured, “Aleppo.”
“Yeah, in Aleppo,” Waters said.
“And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea,” she continued
“I think he’s leading himself into that kind of position where folks will begin to ask, ‘What are we going to do?’ and the answer’s going to be, ‘Eventually, we’ve got to do something about him’,” Waters said, referring to Trump.
Nancy Pelosi, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, representing California’s 12th congressional district, immediately distanced herself from the comments.
“Many things the congresswoman said are grounds for displeasure and unease in the public about the performance of this president,” Pelosi said, adding that Trump has acted in a way that is “strategically incoherent, incompetent and that is reckless.”
However, according to Pelosi, it is not “grounds for impeachment.”
