Maxine Waters Demands Impeachment, Despite Mueller Report Exonerating Trump
Democrat declares: 'We are well past the time when we should have considered impeachment'
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is among the alarming number of liberals seemingly disappointed that the Russia probe proved their president wasn't a Russian agent, as the Democratic congresswoman calls for Trump's impeachment, despite Mueller's report exonerating him.
On Friday, Mueller submitted his report on alleged Russian collusion to Attorney General William Barr, putting to bed the 22-month investigation into Russia's potential interference in the Trump campaign that has cost the American taxpayer millions of dollars.
Following the report, even hyper-partisan new outlet CNN was forced to admit that the final report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe has "vindicated" President Donald Trump, undercutting the frenzied coverage the network has given the Russia investigation since it began.
For Maxine Waters, however, the result still wasn't satisfactory as she declared during an interview on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” on Sunday that "we are well past the time when we should have considered impeachment."

According to the California Democrat, impeachment of President Donald Trump should have already been on the table, regardless of what the Mueller report reveals.
“This president has a way of trying to get into people’s heads.
"He has been saying no collusion, no collusion over and over again for a long time.
"He’s going try to conclude that this report is proven that there is no collusion and you have a lot of his sycophants who’ll take the nod from him and they’ll say the same thing.
"We can’t allow them to get away with this. He does this all the time.
"This is not the end of anything.
"Well, it is to end the report and the investigation by Mueller but those of us who share these committees with our oversight because there are so much that needs to be taken a look at.
"It is not the end of everything.”

“No matter your ideologies or your loyalties, this is a good day for America. No American conspired to cooperate with Russia in its efforts to interfere with the 2016 election, according to Robert Mueller, and that is good.” @BretBaier @FoxNews— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2019

“There are very specific things like Manafort given to Kilimnik polling data.
"Why would he be giving polling data from the election to this Russian?
"Why would he be literally talking about — well, first of all, we have all of these contacts that we have documented with those members of the group of people who are around this president having met or talk with Russians, and they lied about it?
"Why would they do that?
"If you take a look at the lies and the meetings that took place at Trump Tower, when you take a look at the polling data that has been given to Russians, when you take a look at the fact that Flynn called someone in Russia and told him you know the sanctions were going to be lifted and they can go on with their big energy project, there is so much that’s there that shows collusion," Waters added.
"As far as I am concerned and obstruction of justice.
"I believe that we are well past the time when we should have considered impeachment of this president.”
