    The Russian pranksters famous for tricking House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) into seeking nude pictures of President Donald Trump are claiming that they just got Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) — for a second time. YouTubers Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who go by the names Vovan and Lexus, recently called Waters’s office and, with the help of a female colleague, pretended to be teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, TIME‘s “Person of the Year” for 2019, and her father, claiming to have a taped confession from Trump admitting to the exact charges in House Democrats’ articles of impeachment which...

    How on earth is Maxine Waters able to judge the intelligence of Dr. Ben Carson, a world-renowned surgeon who invented new surgical procedures while a professor at Johns Hopkins Medical School, at the very top of prestige and accomplishment in academic medicine? Yet the arrogant House member from Los Angeles, who somehow, on the basis of a political career, manages to live in a multimillion-dollar house in one of the fanciest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, denigrates the intelligence of one of the greatest medical innovators in the country and world. You can watch for yourself as Waters criticizes the intelligence...

    'Impeachment is not good enough for Trump' Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) expressed her desire to throw President Donald Trump in solitary confinement despite her previous opposition to the practice. Waters suggested that Trump should be tried and executed for treason or at the very least placed in solitary confinement after Tump characterized the Ukraine phone call whistleblower as "close to a spy." "Impeachment is not good enough for Trump," the often-outspoken congresswoman argued on Twitter. "He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative." Despite her enthusiasm for putting Trump in...

"Americans, please stop tolerating the pain, suffering, and prayers of families, friends, neighborhoods & all caring Americans. Demand the Members of Congress get rid of ALL assault weapons or kick our a--- out of Congress!" she tweeted Tuesday.

    IQ rates are dropping in many developed countries and that doesn't bode well for humanity An intelligence crisis could undermine our problem-solving capacities and dim the prospects of the global economy. People are getting dumber. That's not a judgment; it's a global fact. In a host of leading nations, IQ scores have started to decline. SNIP If we want to prevent America from suffering this fate, we’d better figure out why IQs are dropping elsewhere. But it’s uncharted territory. Until recently, IQ scores only moved in one direction: up. And if you're thinking, "Isn't the test set up so that...

    WASHINGTON — A key congressional committee has already gained access to President Donald Trump's dealings with two major financial institutions, two sources familiar with the House probe tell NBC News, as a court ruling Wednesday promised to open the door for even more records to be handed over. Wells Fargo and TD Bank are the two of nine institutions that have so far complied with subpoenas issued by the House Financial Services Committee demanding information about their dealings with the Trump Organization, according to the sources. The disclosures by these two banks haven't been previously reported. Both TD Bank and...

    Tensions between House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry, R.-N.C., reportedly overflowed Thursday during a hearing with bank regulators. Waters abruptly ended the nearly three-and-a-half hour session with little warning, Republicans complained, while McHenry and at least one Democrat still wanted to ask questions, Politico reported. Waters rebuffed McHenry’s request for more time, saying she wanted to keep her time commitment to the bank regulators, the Washington Examiner reported. "If a mistake was made and you were not notified, we will deal with that later,” she said.

    While some of her fellow Democrats were questioning the credibility of Attorney General William Barr over his handling of the Robert Mueller report, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., took that criticism to another level. The California Democrat trashed the attorney general Wednesday night on the eve of Special Counsel Mueller’s report being released to the public, calling Barr “a lackey and a sycophant” for President Trump. “I never expected Barr to do anything that would be respectful to the members of Congress or to include us in any real way,” she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, joining colleagues fuming over the decision...

    Rep. Maxine Waters is embracing corporate campaign contributions as the new chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, even as some progressive Democrats have sworn off fundraising from businesses. **SNIP** Even industries that Waters has bashed were willing to make contributions to the new chairwoman. TransUnion's PAC gave $5,000 to her campaign on Feb. 15, two weeks before its CEO testified with other credit reporting executives at a Financial Services hearing intended to showcase their companies' shortcomings. Other corporate PACs that contributed to Waters' campaign included those operated by Amazon, NASDAQ and the Independent Community Bankers of America. Boeing and...

    by Sheri Urban The House Banking Committee, led by (ahem) "distinguished" Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), called in the nation’s top bankers on Wednesday to arrogantly lecture them on greed and political correctness. During her questioning Mad Maxine asked the bankers about what they were doing with their own loan policies to help those suffering with massive student loan debt. Each of the bankers on the panel sat for a moment in stunned silence, and then -- trying to hide a smirk -- quickly reminded the Banking Committee Chairperson that they no longer make ANY student loans. As in...NONE....

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee, engaged in a fiery exchange Tuesday with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin over the length of his testimony before the committee. The exchange grew heated as Mnuchin requested to leave the hearing because of a meeting he said he had scheduled with a foreign leader. After Waters told Mnuchin that he was free to leave, Mnuchin asked her to dismiss the hearing, saying that she was supposed to "take the gavel and bang it.” “Please do not instruct me as to how I am to conduct this committee," Waters...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is not quite running a tight ship. Despite the California congresswoman’s repeated calls for her colleagues to focus on legislation and move on from the fantasy of drafting articles of impeachment against President Trump, some in her caucus are just really committed to seeing him removed from office. Rep. Maxine Waters, D.-Calif., for example, promised supporters this week that she is very much devoted to pursuing impeachment. "So, some people say, ‘How dare her come out and say impeach him? She doesn't know enough about him to talk about impeaching him.' But now the American...

    U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., has toned down her calls for President Trump's impeachment since Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded there was no collusion with Russia, admitting that forceful removal of the president has “never been discussed” as a realistic strategy among Democrats. Waters, whose calls for impeachment and support for the now-disproven Russia-collusion theory helped boost her national profile, made the striking admission Monday, despite saying just days earlier that the Mueller report didn’t signal “the end of anything.” “I think we do nothing now but concentrate on getting the information, getting that report,” Waters said, in reference to...

    Rep. Maxine Waters showed no sign of slowing her calls to impeach President Trump after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report found no evidence of Russian collusion. “This president has a way of trying to get into people’s heads and indoctrinate them,” Ms. Waters, a Calfornia Democrat who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Sunday. “He’s been saying ‘no collusion, ‘no collusion,’ ‘no collusion’ over and over again for a long time now, and he’s going try to conclude that this report is proof that there is no collusion,” she said. “And you have a lot...

    The scandal-plagued U.S. bank Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) is "too big to manage," a top U.S. lawmaker told CEO Tim Sloan at a hearing Tuesday in Washington. Maxine Waters, a Democratic congresswoman who heads the U.S. House of Representatives' Financial Services Committee, said at the hearing that Wells Fargo is blighted by "ongoing lawlessness and failure to right the ship." Waters represents a district in southern California, where some of the San Francisco-based bank's alleged customer abuses first emerged. It was the first time Sloan has appeared before the House panel since Democrats took control of the chamber following...

    Rep. Maxine Waters, who is leading a probe into President Donald Trump's finances, wants Trump's nonprofit foundation to be the Democrats' next target because of tax evasion concerns. The House Financial Services Committee chairwoman hinted to reporters on Thursday that she may even have a lead in the form of a letter "from somebody who told me about a situation that they want to talk with me more about.” Trump agreed to shut down his personal charity in December following a lawsuit brought by the New York attorney general that alleged the president and his children used the foundation for...

    Rep. Maxine Waters feels sorry for broke millennials. In fact, the California representative seemed to go so far as to apologize to the younger generation for their economic situation during a speech Friday. “Millennials say, ‘We have done everything you told us to do, only to find out we can’t get a job. And when we get a job it’s not worth going to work every day because of the pay that is offered to us,’” she told the audience at the Rainbow Coalition Wall Street Project Economic Summit at the Sheraton Hotel in Midtown. Democrat Waters — who has...
