Brooke Baldwin To Maxine Waters You Need 'To Find Evidence' Before Using 'Huge Word' Like Impeachmen. Last week, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) stated that it was her “greatest desire” to lead President Donald Trump to impeachment and that she really hoped he wasn’t around for his entire four-year term. At a press conference earlier today, she addressed those comments, explaining that she hasn’t called for an impeachment yet but “he’s doing it himself.”
During an appearance on CNN this afternoon, Waters was grilled by anchor Brooke Baldwin over why she was bringing this topic up so early in Trump’s presidency.
First of all, just let me say these are not normal times,” Waters responded. “We have a president who is creating chaos and division.” She then brought up issues surrounding Russian hacking and Trump’s business interests.
“Congresswoman, what’s the evidence,” Baldwin interjected. “Forgive me for jumping in, but what is the evidence that would lead to impeachment here?”
After the California lawmaker highlighted that there are investigations going on in the House and Senate while simultaneously saying they need to find out more about Trump, Baldwin reiterated the need for evidence before using the word impeachment.
“I understand on the investigation,” she noted. “But you know, you do have to find evidence before using such a huge word, such a tremendous word, as the I word, the I in impeachment.”
