Trump should be in ‘prison’ says Democrat Maxine Waters in latest outrageous tirade
California Representative Maxine Waters said Mr Trump should be held responsible for what she describes as “crimes”. Now 80, Mrs Waters has served in the House of Representatives since 1991, representing three different constituencies. Fox News reported she tweeted: "Michael Cohen is serving 3 yrs for the crimes that he committed w/ and for the President of the USA. Many are wondering why this case was closed. It ain't over until it's over & it ain't over until Trump is held responsible for all of his crimes. Impeachment first, prison next!"
Mrs Waters went on to say extra testimony from lawyers working on the Robert Mueller investigation could help impeachment proceedings.She also posed the possibility of Democrats being able to successfully interrogate Mr Mueller for new information.Mrs Waters tweeted: “The Judiciary members have a good plan to force more info out of Mueller when he testifies before the committee.“If this works, this will give us the ammunition we need to start impeachment immediately.”READ MORE: Melania Trump to host major event for nation Michelle Obama overlooked
