Maxine Waters is the gift that keeps on giving to Trump and the Republican party. With tensions at a high and many not bothering to wait for the evidence until they render their verdicts, Maxine Waters just went too far even for her.
She is calling for Trump to be imprisoned and put in solitary confinement. Has she lost her mind?
Maxine should remember that it was Trump, not Obama or Bush, who signed the crime bill that reversed what Bill Clinton did to minority communities.
From The Hill: The Financial Services Committee chairwoman, who hasn’t been one to mince words about Trump, escalated her calls for impeachment in the wake of the president’s attacks on the intelligence community whistleblower complaint that sparked a formal impeachment inquiry by House Democrats.
“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed.
Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” Waters tweeted.
Waters has previously said Trump should be imprisoned, but this is the first time she called for solitary confinement.
Two days ahead of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before Congress in late July, Waters tweeted that Trump should be “held responsible” after his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, went to prison for crimes including tax evasion and campaign finance violations related to hush money payments to women alleging affairs with Trump.
“Michael Cohen is serving 3 yrs for the crimes that he committed w/ and for the President of the USA.
Many are wondering why this case was closed. It ain’t over until it’s over & it ain’t over until Trump is held responsible for all of his crimes. Impeachment first, prison next!” Waters tweeted at the time.
