Democrats have been forced to retreat after special counsel Mueller’s report showed that President Trump was innocent of any collusion with Russia. However, some are still bent on attacking Trump.
One Democrat licking her wounds and looking for an opening is Rep. Maxine Waters. She is currently looking to get Mueller’s full report released while simultaneously claiming that she never sought Trump’s impeachment.
“I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report,” Waters told Politico. “[Impeachment has] never been discussed as a strategy for this caucus. It’s only a few of us.”
This is a far cry from statements she made in 2017 where she speculated that an investigation into Trump and Russia would “lead right to impeachment.”
Despite being proven wrong every step of the way, Waters has signaled that she still isn’t getting the hint. She confusingly shared that “this is not the end of anything,” before adding, “well, it is the end of the report and the investigation by Mueller, but those of us who share these committees with our oversight because there is so much that needs to be taken a look at this point. It is not the end of everything.”
The evidence doesn’t get much clearer than what a two year investigation can conclude, Waters is just searching in the dark at this point.
