    Rep. Maxine Waters of California was one of the first congressional Democrats to call for an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, which the House formally launched last week. And in a Tuesday tweet, Waters took her criticisms a step further and said that Trump should be "imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement" over his frequent attacks against the intelligence community whistleblower who filed an explosive complaint against him. The whistleblower wrote that Trump used "the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election" in a July 25 phone call with Ukrainian...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (Calif.), one of the first Democrats to call for President Trump's impeachment, went a step further on Tuesday by saying he should be imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement. 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...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — There is a new effort to help ease the homeless crisis in Southern California. Congresswoman Maxine Waters hosted a hearing in Exposition Park Wednesday to take a closer look at homelessness in Los Angeles and try to find a solution. Democratic members of Congress heard testimony about the homeless crisis and explored the question, “What can the federal government do to help?” “The federal government has been missing in action,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

"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.

    Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (CA) completely went off the rails Tuesday and called for Trump to resign in one of her craziest tirades yet. Waters, who is one of the most corrupt lawmakers in Congress, had the nerve to accuse Trump of being a “crooked liar.” “Low life Trump – lying, crooked, tax evader, porn star fornicator – should take his ridiculous self home, resign, and free us of what we will have to do to impeach him and throw him out of office!” Waters said Tuesday in a tweet.

    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.

    Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., lambasted President Trump’s immigration plan and labeled portions of it “very racist.” “There should be comprehensive immigration reform and not immigration reform that is based on exciting and inciting those people who have negative thoughts about others coming across our border and basically working to use that information to promote himself in a campaign,” Waters said during an interview with CNN Friday morning. “And I think some of that is very racist. It is not keeping with what this country is supposed to be all about.” President Trump rolled out his new immigration plan on Thursday,...

    Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) paid $50,000 from her campaign's coffers to her daughter in recent months to chip away at six figures of accrued debt for an operation that pulls in large sums of money for the congresswoman's campaign committee, Federal Election Commission filings show. Rep. Waters's committee disbursed two payments to her daughter, Karen, in the amounts of $42,000 and $8,000 during the first quarter, which runs from Jan. 1 to March 31. The $50,000 in payments were made to Karen for running a slate mailer, or endorsement mailer, operation from the campaign and were the most paid...

    U.S. News & World Report ^ | May 8, 2019 | Laurie Kellman, The Associated Press
    She's been called "Kerosene Maxine" and gaveled off the House floor for accusing Republican men of badgering women. She dismissed President Donald Trump and his allies as thugs and predicted his impeachment before he was sworn into office. No one, Maxine Waters once observed, should be surprised by her. But after nearly three decades in Congress, the 80-year-old California lawmaker is in an eye-opening role as the highest-ranking African American woman in the country. She's wielding the gavel of the bank-regulating Financial Services Committee with the power to investigate Trump where some say it counts most: his business dealings. The...

    President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Monday against Deutsche Bank and Capital One in an attempt to block congressional subpoenas for his business records, claiming House Democrats are simply attempting to harass him. Politico reported that in a joint statement, Reps. Maxine Waters, D-Calif. and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., called the Trump suit “meritless.” They claimed Trump’s suit was a tactic to delay accountability. Waters is the chairwoman of the Financial Services Committee and Schiff is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Schiff said at the time that the subpoenas were part of an investigation "into allegations of potential foreign...

    California congressional candidate Omar Navarro, who is running against Rep. Maxine Waters, said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Thursday that if there’s anyone who should be impeached, it’s the California Democrat. **SNIP** “You know when I walk around in my district and I talk to voters, I talk to different voters, talk to the Hispanic community, which is the largest community, 54 percent of my district, you have to look what are the demographics,” he said. “When I look at the demographics, I talk to the voters knocking on doors, people want to see someone that’s going to...

    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....
