California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters had quite the slip of the tongue over the weekend when she revealed that Democrats were never going to stop trying to impeach President Donald Trump from office.
During an interview on Sunday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Weekends,” Waters spoke about the impeachment trial beginning in the Senate this week.
But things took a turn when Waters said even if Trump is acquitted by the Senate, House Democrats would not stop investigating him.
"What about if the president is ultimately acquitted by the Senate? Do you see the house potentially taking up other articles of impeachment against him? You are the chair of the Financial Services Committee," Waters began.
"There has been plenty of talk of emoluments clause violations. Might those potentially be stronger than what we’ve seen here, could that be taken up?" she continued.
She wasn't done there.
"Let me just say this. All of us have the responsibility for oversight. Yes, I have subpoenaed documents from Deutsche bank," Waters declared.
"Yes, I am concerned about the financial affairs of the president of the United States, including money laundering. And I’m continuing with that. As a matter of fact, the subpoenas that I’ve issued that’s gone through the lower courts are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court in March. We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know," she added.
Waters concluded by saying, "But I know we must continue with the work that our constituents have elected us to come to Congress to do."
After three months of delaying, stalling, and seeking leverage, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally transmitted the House-passed articles of impeachment to the Senate last Wednesday.
Pelosi and her allies yapped for months that they were impeaching Trump because he was a danger to America and the United States' national security.
Then, she sat on the articles for three months and only decided to transfer them after members of her own party called her out for playing political games.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he expects the Senate to conclude the Senate trial in about a month, with the president being fully acquitted.
While Trump will be acquitted in a month or so, stay tuned for the next episode of the Pelosi Puppet Show.
