At this point, one wonders whether Rep. Maxine Waters has ceased being a congresswoman and started being a piece of legislative performance art.
Ever since President Donald Trump got elected, the far-left California Democrat has had so many strange incidents it’s difficult to imagine it’s anything but intentional.
First, she appeared on “Hardball” and said that Trump ought to be pre-emptively impeached, although she couldn’t coherently explain why. Then, she said that Vladimir Putin had invaded Korea (she meant Crimea — we think).
Now, she’s pushing elements of the debunked Trump “dossier,” in particular the extremely dubious sexual allegations made against the president.
Waters made her latest claims during an appearance on MSNBC Thursday.
“I think it should be taken a look at. I think they should really read it, understand it, analyze it, and determine what’s fact, what may not be fact,” Waters said. “We already know the part about the coverage they have on him with sex actions is supposed to be true.
“They have said that’s absolutely true. Some other things they kind of allude to. Yes, I think he should go into that dossier and see what’s there,” she continued.
To her credit, host Ali Velshi pushed back.
“You say you think them to be true. How are we all going to find out what is true and what isn’t true? Does it help that you think so? Because unless you have information we don’t have, that’s an allegation,” Velshi asked.
“You understand that I am saying the investigations must be done, the drilling down must be done. We must get to the facts of what it has been about,” Waters responded. “I don’t think you can do the impeachment just because I think or others think. But I think that if we do the investigations, that we will find the connections and I do think that impeachment will be necessary.”
You can see her comments here (understanding them may be another issue entirely):
Even BuzzFeed, the website that published the mostly discredited dossier despite being able to confirm almost none of it, couldn’t stand up for Waters. BuzzFeed reported on her statement with the headline, “Maxine Waters Falsely Suggested The Sex Claims In The Trump Dossier Have Been Verified.”
Dare we say fake news?
Intelligence community veterans have mostly dismissed the dossier’s wildest claims, and it was also revealed that one part of it relied heavily on “evidence” that Trump’s lawyer visited a country he had never been to.
It’s telling that Waters went for the sex claims first — one part of the dossier that’s been completely unverified. It’s yet more proof that she doesn’t care about the truth, she just cares about something titillating that will get her some attention.
If that was her aim, Maxine Waters certainly got it. Just maybe not in the way she wanted to.
