    “There are those who say, ‘What if we get rid of him? Then we’ve got that Vice President and he’ll be worse.’ I say knock off the first one and then go after the second one. We have the power.” You can always count on Rep. Maxine Waters to give away the plans to destroy Trump’s presidency and administration. The latest of which occurred Friday and included a suggestion to “knock off” Trump, which was greeted with applause and cheers. The National Newspaper Publishers Association gave Waters a National Leadership Award and Waters used her platform to trash Trump. Watch:...
  • Maxine Waters Unloads on Trump: ‘The Most Deplorable, Despicable Human Being’

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 13, 2018 | Rob Bluey
    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., escalated her ongoing feud with President Donald Trump, calling him “the most deplorable, the most despicable human being” and advocating his impeachment. Waters received a hero’s welcome, including two standing ovations, at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference Thursday in Washington. Introduced as a leader of the “resistance,” Waters spoke for more than 30 minutes about the Trump administration’s policies related to criminal justice. After finishing her prepared remarks, she made her most pointed comments about the president. “This is a bad time—to put it mildly. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life,”...
  • If You’re Hoping Trump Will Be Impeached, Be Careful What You Wish For

    Rolling Stone ^ | September 14, 2018 | David S. Cohen
    Are you rooting hard for President Trump to be impeached and removed from office? Or, as the anonymous New York Times op-ed last week discussed, hoping there will be an invocation of the (completely unrealistic) 25th Amendment? Or better yet, for him to hang his head in shame and resign? If so, you’re certainly not alone, as every passing day there is new reason to doubt Trump’s competence and evidence linking him to criminal behavior is piling up. But there’s a huge risk: If Trump vacates the office, we could face almost 10 years of President Mike Pence. Is that...
  • The Democrat Who Could Lead Trump’s Impeachment Isn’t Sure It’s Warranted

    If the House flips, Representative Jerry Nadler would head the committee that could try to oust the president. But he’ll have to be convinced first. BROOKLYN—“Right now, I don’t want to talk about it,” Jerry Nadler told his curious, concerned constituent. “We don’t want to talk about it.” The man positioned to lead the House of Representatives’ impeachment effort against President Donald Trump next year was holding court on a suffocating early August afternoon outside a Walgreens in the Brooklyn half of his New York City congressional district. This was a “Congress on Your Corner” event, and the 71-year-old Nadler—dressed...

    "Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment! Impeachment!" ---Congresswoman Maxine Waters. What do you think the top priority of Congress would be if the Democrats win control of the House in November? The answer is something upon which both the left and the right would agree: Impeachment. And yet the party position is to pretend that impeachment is not on their minds 24/7 because they know such an admission could hurt them with the voters, no matter what Waters might be saying.The only other type of person who would go through such a pretense would be a writer acting in the role of...
  • With 'legal grounds,' Jenny Wilson says she would move for Trump's impeachment (Utah Dem candidate)

    If there are legal grounds to support it, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jenny Wilson said Monday that she "will support moving toward impeachment" of President Donald Trump. "If the (special counsel Robert) Mueller report comes out with a grounds toward impeachment, I think we are in such chaos as a nation, we cannot heal until he's gone," Wilson told the editorial boards of the Deseret News and KSL. That said, Wilson said she awaits the release of the Mueller report on the yearlong investigation into the president's conduct. "I'm not favoring impeachment at this moment in time," she said. But...

    Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters escalated her rhetorical assault on President Trump over the weekend – vowing to "get him" and repeating the word "impeachment" over and over. Waters, who took heat earlier this year for urging her supporters to confront Trump administration officials in public, told a group gathered in Los Angeles that some Democratic leaders have asked her to stop talking about impeaching Trump. “There’s a difference in how some of our leadership talk about how we should handle all of this,” Water said. “They say, ‘Maxine, please don’t say impeachment anymore.'” “And when they say that, I say...
  • Kavanaugh should not decide any cases concerning Trump

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | September 9, 2018 | Ruth Marcus, The Washington Post
    Under the unusual circumstances surrounding his selection, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should have agreed to recuse himself from deciding cases involving the investigation of President Trump. The reason Kavanaugh asserted at his confirmation hearing for refusing to make such a pledge — that it would violate the imperative of judicial independence — is entirely unconvincing. In turn, senators should decline to approve Kavanaugh’s nomination unless he does so. And, since that’s not likely to happen, in the event that a case involving the Trump investigation were to come before a Justice Kavanaugh, he should not participate — for his...

    Lifehacker ^ | Saturday, September 8, 2018 | Beth Skwarecki
    The US Constitution provides instructions for how to remove a president from office if they are unfit to do their job—gravely wounded, for example, or mentally unstable. The instructions were ratified as an amendment in 1967, after John F. Kennedy's assassination. Until that point, the Constitution just vaguely referred to the fact that a president could be removed for "Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of said Office." When can the 25th amendment be invoked for an unfit president? Whenever the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet are ready to do so. One anonymous "senior official" wrote...

    President Donald Trump told supporters Thursday that if he is impeached "it's your fault 'cause you didn't go out to vote." "You didn't go out to vote -- that's the only way it could happen," Trump said during a rally in Billings, Montana. "I'll be the only President in history they'll say: 'What a job he's done! By the way, we're impeaching him,' " Trump said. "This election, you aren't just voting for a candidate, you are voting for which party controls Congress," the President said. "Very important thing. Very important thing." The rally in Montana -- where Trump was...

    A Hillary Clinton presidency would have been even more disruptive that the current Donald Trump administration, historian and prolific author Niall Ferguson told CNBC on Thursday. "There would have been an almost immediate impeachment process," Ferguson said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy on Thursday. "More importantly, Trump supporters would have bought the story that the election had been rigged and you would have had Trump supporters with their pitchforks, or more likely semi-automatics, in a very ugly mood," he added. An anonymous op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday painted...

    Left-wing Trump haters should be careful what they wish for in their hysterical drive to oust the president from office. The could end up with President Mike Pence. Talk about your dream turning into a nightmare. Because if you think Donald Trump is conservative, you haven’t met Vice President Mike Pence. He is not only to the right of the president — and is much more articulate on the issues — he brings with him a deep religious belief that accompanies his conservativism.

    Needless to say, it's not every day that one sees a conservative urging the House to vote on impeaching President Trump. So, for liberals yearning for a conservative to do just that, rejoice! Because this is your day. This writer is that conservative. As for why this conservative urges granting Democrats their fondest wish – and during the runup to the midterm elections – follow the writer's admittedly Fawlty logic.

    It’s actually surreal to think how easily the media can dupe people into thinking that President Trump is going to be impeached and possibly removed from office. For the last five-and-a-half years of the Bush administration, the Democratic Party howled that Bush “lied us to war to enrich his friends.” In the history of democracy, this is probably the most egregious charge ever leveled against a democratic leader. With more than 4,000 dead and tens of thousands maimed for life “under false pretenses,” it easily dwarfs the famed Watergate scandal, in which no one died. And yet the Democrats of...

    During an appearance on MSNBC Monday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged fellow Democrat lawmakers to make efforts to impeach President Donald Trump a central issue. A partial transcript follows: DAVID GURA: You’ve had a couple of days to consider what happened on Tuesday of this week, just to pivot to another subject here. That being what happened in a federal courtroom outside of Washington, D.C. in Alexandria, what happened in New York, as well. Michael Cohen plead guilty to some campaign finance violations, among other things. I want to read a little bit from your statement you issued after those...

    This president is not going to be forced out of office because of infidelity. Congress has been down that road before — and it led nowhere. Last week was widely held to be the darkest of President Donald Trump’s presidency. His longtime former attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to a campaign finance violation — paying off Trump mistresses in what amounted to an illegal campaign contribution — and indicated Trump put him up to it. It was, some said, the beginning of the end. Well, the end may come. But this is not the beginning of it. Trump is not...

    Last Tuesday, the Democrats and many of their mainstream media allies went into a state of jubilation at the thought that impeachment of President Donald Trump could be imminent in the wake of the court convictions of Paul Manafort and the guilty pleas of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. However, CNN legal analyst Paul Callan tossed cold water on these celebrations with a few reality checks that they definitely won't be thrilled to hear.

    During Sunday’s “The Cats Roundtable” on New York AM 970 radio, pollster and political analyst Pat Caddell weighed in on the 2018 midterm elections and said it was pretty obvious Democrats would “make an effort to impeach” President Donald Trump if they took the House. “I’m not sure this is an ordinary midterm, any more than 2016 was an ordinary presidential election. I believe we have yet to see this election engaged,” Caddell told host John Catsimatidis. “And it should be a national election. It will be nationalized. One of the issues is going to be impeachment. I don’t think...
