Waters Claims She’s Never Called For Trump’s Impeachment Hours After Tweeting She Wanted Him Impeached [Watch]

David Rutz, Washington Free Beacon

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) found herself getting fact-checked in the middle of her MSNBC interview on Tuesday when she claimed she has never called for the impeachment of President Trump

Waters is a fervent critic of Trump, and she tweeted as recently as Tuesday morning that she would "fight everyday until he's impeached." MSNBC host Craig Melvin read the tweet out at the beginning of their interview and asked Waters what those impeachable offenses were.

Waters said there were questions about whether Trump and the Russian government colluded to defeat Hillary Clinton, but as she listed her accusations against various members of Trump's Cabinet, Melvin tried to cut in.

"You have enough information that leads us to, I think, a credible investigation to find out whether or not there was collusion, and whether or not an oil deal is involved in all of this," Waters said.

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
