It's not rocket science to figure out that the Democrats really hate President Trump. The Democrats are enraged that Trump is forcing students to pay back their student loans, livid that he nominated a textualist to the Supreme Court, and apoplectic that he ordered a travel ban on six nations that pose massive vetting problems and are teeming with Islamic extremists.
However, nothing fires up the Democrats more than the conspiracy that the Russians assisted Trump in winning the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton. Many Democrats, namely Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez, have openly suggested that Trump is working with Vladimir Putin.
After FBI Director James Comey testified that he is probing into possible ties between Trump's campaign and the Russians, Rep. Maxine Waters from California wrote the following idiotic tweet:
Get ready for impeachment.— Maxine Waters (@MaxineWaters) March 21, 2017
This is not the first time that Rep. Waters said something unhinged and idiotic, but this tweet takes the cake. By her "logic," if the FBI is seeking answers to questions surrounding the Trump campaign and the Russians, then Trump is automatically guilty before being proven innocent. Not only does this bastardize one of the key components of fairness in the law, but it also cheapens what the Constitution establishes as justifiable cause to impeach the President in Article II, Section 4:
The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
Earth to Maxine: An investigation does not constitute a conviction. Calling for impeachment of the President of the United States on shoddy non-evidence should be embarrassing to any reasonable politician. If anyone is deserving of being kicked out of office for violating the law of the land, it would be the individual who lied about her age to acquire a Social Security Card, Maxine Waters. In addition, Waters' campaign also paid her daughter $70,000 during her 2016 re-election campaign in what could constitute an ethics violation. Speaking of ethics violations, Rep. Waters was charged on three counts of violating the House rules and the House ethics code in her attempt to arrange a meeting between Treasury officials and members of OneUnited Bank.
Earth to Maxine: An investigation does not constitute a conviction.
In short, Maxine Waters, with her personal history of violating the rules for her own interests, is not the best mouthpiece for the Democratic party on this issue. As for the case against Trump, after over six months of using all of its resources to catch him in supposed collusion with Putin, the Democrats and the media thus far have produced "no evidence." It might be time to drop the narrative.
