Democrat Congresswoman and long-time Trump critic Maxine Waters is creating intrigue on Twitter, making Vice President Mike Pence appear too eager to “replace” President Donald Trump and is preparing for his impeachment.
Waters also involved former Trump staff who have either resigned or was fired recently. She posted on Twitter: “Mike Pence is somewhere planning an inauguration. Priebus and Spicer will lead the transition.”
Waters was also the first American politician to claim that the supposed salacious sex acts in the unverified Russian dossier against Trump were “absolutely true.”
The Democrat lawmaker has also been persistent in calling for the impeachment of Trump. She said to a Washington bookshop audience in May: “He’s someone that I’m committed to getting impeached! He’s a liar! He’s a cheat! He’s a con man! We’ve got to stop his ass.”
Two of her Democrat allies, Al Green and Brad Sherman, filed the first impeachment articles against the President on July 12. They alleged that Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey during his probe into the alleged Russian interference in last year’s presidential election.
The impeachment is unlikely to move forward, however, as it would need approval from the majority of the House of Representatives and a two-thirds majority in the Senate to get going. Both the House and the Senate are under Republican control until at least the mid-term elections in November next year.
No President in the U.S. has ever been removed from the White House due to impeachment. Only two American presidents have been impeached- Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson but they were both exonerated by the Senate and managed to complete their respective terms, nonetheless.
Richard Nixon resigned following the Watergate scandal before Congress could even impeach him.
Vice President Pence has not responded to Waters’ “fantastic” accusation and intrigue yet.
