Maxine Waters pushes liberal reporter: ‘I’m out to impeach the President’

On Saturday, Rep. Maxine “No justice, no peace” Waters, D-Calif., made it clear to a liberal reporter that the only thing she cares about is impeaching Donald Trump, and has no time for anyone who might ask her a question about former President Obama and his dealings with the Russians.  According to Michael Tracey, a roving journalist with the Young Turks, Waters “became agitated, stormed off and ‘shoved’ my arm” after he asked her a question.

“You say Russia’s not our friend, was Obama mistaken to forge military cooperation with Russia in Syria and try to . . .” Tracey asked.

“Look, you and I have a different agenda, young man. I’m out to impeach this President – get that straight. I’m out to impeach the President. I’m not gonna be diverted by people who are Obama haters,” Waters said in response.

Tracey posted a brief comment about the incident on Twitter:

Although Tracey did not describe the incident as an “assault,” he did say it shows Waters to be “erratic, intemperate, and unprofessional.”

His cameraman described the incident, noting that Tracey’s “tone was great. You just asked the question.”

Here’s the entire incident posted on Twitter:

Although Tracey made it clear her physical contact didn’t rise to the level of criminal assault, Waters’ insane base laughed it off, attacking Tracey:

As a final note, Waters still has not said if she condemns death threats against President Trump.  We’re not holding our breath…
