Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), along with her colleague Al Green (D-TX), is a leader of the impeach-Trump movement. But in 1998, Waters called impeachment a "coup d'etat." And she wasn't just upset about because she thought Bill Clinton was not guilty, she was upset at the use of the institution of impeachment. She called it an "unapologetic disregard for the voice of the people" and an "abuse of power in the collecting of so-called 'evidence' and the denial of the presumption of innocence." But isn't this exactly what she's proposing doing to President Trump?

Nope, unnecessary. I think many have been holding quiet and letting it all fall "into place" through the political process. Have you seen any higher tier lawmakers, i.e. Pelosi, Pocahontas, call for impeachment? They know this is in the hands of the Republicans and it is for them to investigate, so the Dems just have to prod away at it being investigated properly.

Already fighting her chances of a 2020 with a nickname. I find it funny...I had been told when I was a kid that there was native blood in my veins without any genealogical support. Can I get a nickname too?

hate to break it to you, Howie Carr, a local Boston radio talk show host, gave her that name when the whole Native American lineage issue came up in the MA senate race, nothing new there

There were a few sure... and even on the other side of the fence too. There is no point to a call unless the House would pass such an action. For that it would have to be really really bad with the Republicans in control.
