Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on Friday once again reiterated her call to impeach President Donald Trump — and she said there is “overwhelming” evidence to start impeachment hearings right now.
During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, Waters said the question is not if Trump will be impeached, but when it will happen.
“If we look at Mueller’s report and see where he clearly defines that he’s obstructed justice, people will increasingly come to the conclusion that impeachment is inevitable,” she said. “This president has done everything that one could even think of to be eligible for impeachment and the Constitution basically gives us the power to deal with someone who has not acted in the best interest of this country.”
Berman then asked her if she thought House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has been very reluctant to talk up impeachment proceedings, was coming around to her view.
“I don’t know if Nancy Pelosi is moving closer, but I suspect the information is becoming overwhelming,” she replied. “I’m hopeful the American public will support impeachment.”

‘It’s getting worse’: Here’s how Trump’s corruption is accelerating at a ‘stunning’ rate
CNN host Brooke Baldwin and special correspondent Jamie Gangel were both left utterly shocked by the latest developments swirling around the Trump White House.
After watching White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's stunning press conference in which he revealed that next year's G7 meeting would be held at one of Trump's own golf courses and admitted that the administration had a quid-pro-quo arrangement with Ukraine, Baldwin found herself amazed at the brazenness of the administration's behavior.
Bromance between ‘frantic’ Lindsey Graham and ‘annoyed’ Donald Trump collapses as the Kurds get slaughtered: CNN
The growing rift between Donald Trump and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was documented on CNN on Thursday morning with contributor Dana Bash explaining that a "frantic" Graham is now at loggerheads with an equally "annoyed" president.
Sharing a montage of clips showing Trump and Graham taking shots at each other over the Syria debacle that has resulted in one of Trump's biggest defenders quickly flipping to being one of his harshest critics, Bash explained, "Listening to that, it's hard to believe that Graham is one of Trump's most loyal allies."
With Graham on record stating, "It's not about me and him, it's about the country," Bash begged to differ.
‘It just didn’t add up’: Pelosi says Trump’s meltdown was triggered by simple logic
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday said that a "meltdown" on the part of President Donald Trump came after she questioned the logic of his military leadership.
At her weekly press conference, Pelosi explained the details of a meeting on Syria that took place at the White House on Wednesday.
"I also pointed out to the president I had concerns that all roads seemed to lead to Putin," the Speaker recalled. "The Russians have been trying to get a hold in the Middle East unsuccessfully and now the president has given them an opportunity with the Kurds reaching out to them for support in Syria."
