As the nation watched the start of Donald Trump’s dismissal hearing, many cheered the remarks of the incredible Maxine Waters, who absolutely let him do it when he did not mince words on the length of the process.
Maxine Waters spoke in the House to deliver a speech which will no doubt be quoted for some time. She opened her statements with a quote from the legendary Maya Angelou – before going into business and saying what many thought.
Aunt Maxine’s speech was as follows:
“To quote the late Maya Angelou,” When someone shows you who he is, believe him the first time, “said Waters.” This day was not inevitable, but it was predictable because this president is shown over and over again to believe that he is above the law, and that he has no respect for our Constitution or our democracy.
Based on everything we know about Donald Trump, we could have predicted that he would have abused the President’s power by bribery soliciting him to publicly announce investigations into his political opponent, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. The impeachment resolution includes evidence that this president has withheld $ 391 million in public funds that Congress has used to provide vital military and security assistance to Ukraine to oppose the Russian aggression. Another blatant abuse of power. Our investigations reveal that this president put forward a discredited theory, promoted by Russia, alleging that Ukraine, rather than Russia, was interfered in the 2016 American presidential election, for the purpose of corruption in the prosecution personal political advantage.
Never before in our history have we known a president who behaved so clearly in an offensive and subversive manner towards the Constitution and ordered his members of the Cabinet, his executive agencies and other officials of the White House to challenge congressional legal assignments. said Waters. “Was he trying to hide wrongdoing? There is no doubt that this President has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security and the Constitution if he is allowed to remain in office, and has acted in a manner wholly incompatible with self-government and Rule of law, because every turn he showed us who he was.
It is no secret that this president could have been removed from office a long time ago. Today we stand here with an irrefutable case and a set of indisputable facts that this President has absolutely abused his power in an obstructed Congress. Anyone else who would have been caught behaving in the same way as this president would have been prosecuted to the full extent of the law. It is shameful that all the members of this House are ready to ignore the Constitution and ignore the facts and ignore the confessions of the President himself.
History will remember those who want to tell the truth to power. Yes, I called for Trump’s removal early. This is our country. Our ancestors and our ancestors shed their blood to defend this democracy. I refuse to undermine it. I wholeheartedly support this resolution and I am proud, in the final analysis, that justice will have served America and Donald Trump will have been removed.
It had to be said.
