Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), one of the most strident voices for impeachment, openly expressed her disapproval that Speaker Nancy Pelosi and many other rank-and-file Democrats are no longer interested in supporting impeachment.
And after special counsel Robert Mueller turned in his final report on Friday, indicating there will be no more indictments, Waters must be absolutely furious that the Russia probe did not result in criminal charges against Donald Trump.
Unfortunately, many Members of Congress whisper the President should be impeached but have not supported my call for impeachment. Only a few of us dare to continue to urge both Dems and Repubs to impeach this dangerous president. I will keep trying. The public needs to demand!

The Witch Hunt is Over
Waters, like many anti-Trump Democrats, was banking on the fact Trump was going to be found guilty of collusion.
When Mueller submitted his report and announced no more indictments were coming down, it shattered the entire Democrat Party.
For more than two years, they have all been discrediting Trump’s election win, claiming he teamed up with the Russians to rig the election.
Their witch hunt has cost American taxpayers more than $25 million.
The divide in the Democrat Party has never been more evident.
Pelosi has already stated she doesn’t support impeachment because of how “divisive” it is.
However, along with Waters, several of the younger members of the party are still clamoring they want to impeach the President.
Progressive and centrist Democrats have also been at odds over the Green New Deal and the recent controversial comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
Quite frankly, the party is a complete mess right now.
If Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are not able to unite their party on the same page, it does not bode well for Democrats in the 2020 election.
