Congresswoman Maxine Waters has threatened to attack to Trump and has been quoted as saying she wants to “Take Trump Out. Period.”
Waters has been one of the most outspoken critics of Trump.
Waters has suggested several times in past months that Trump should be impeached, most recently over his argument that NFL players should stop kneeling for the national anthem, a movement started in protest of police mistreatment of African-Americans.
Waters’ most recent comment about Trump, as reported first by The American Mirror, comes just a few months after a gunman opened fire on congressional Republicans as they practiced for a charity baseball game, severely wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La.
Democratic Rep. Al Green, Texas, also threatened to try to impeach Trump.
Earlier this month, he withdrew at the last minute an attempt to force the entire chamber to take a preliminary vote on the issue.
Though the effort would unlikely get a final vote in the GOP-controlled House, any such vote would be politically messy for any member, including Democrats who are trying to develop the message for the 2018 midterms beyond one merely opposing Trump, which has been unsuccessful for them.
