Rep. Maxine Waters is slowly coming to terms with the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller may not have found any evidence for Democrats to use to impeach President Donald Trump.
During an appearance Saturday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” the chairwoman of the House Financial Services Committee began by claiming that Trump is not acting in the best interest of the country.
She also argued that Americans should trust Congress, not Mueller, to determine whether Trump has violated any laws because she believes the president “may be compromised in the way that he’s dealing with other countries.”
“I believe in the Constitution, and the Constitution gives us the authority and the responsibility to decide whether or not a president is acting in the best interests of this country. This president is not. As far as I’m concerned, he has enough violations, he’s been involved in a lot of activity that we believe needs to be made apparent,” Waters said.
“And so, I believe that we have everything that it needs to basically impeach him. I believe that. And you’re absolutely right, we’re depending on Mr. Mueller,” she added.
Waving her hands and appearing very excited, Waters continued by saying, “The American people should be depending on the people that they elected to represent them to determine whether or not this president is undermining the Constitution, whether or not he’s acting in our best interests, and whether or not he’s putting us in danger because he may be compromised in the way that he’s dealing with other countries.”

Later in the segment, Waters made some interesting comments about turning over information to the New York attorney general, another sign that Democrats are starting to admit that Mueller’s final report will not deliver any proof of collusion or treasonous actions by Trump.
