Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has been one of the most outspoken critics of President Donald Trump. As such, she’s become sort of a folk hero for the anti-Trump ‘resistance.’
Waters continues to call for the impeachment of Trump as often as she can. As for her reasoning, she points to the alleged ties between Trump and Russia. She continues to do this in spite of the fact that zero concrete evidence has been produced to support her narrative.
As a general rule of thumb, those that run around throwing out wild accusations would be wise to make sure they have all of their own ducks in a row. As Got News points out, that’s certainly not the case for Waters.
California Democrat Representative Maxine Waters held $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, even while she hypocritically calls for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment over his financial connections to Russia, according to her most recently available House financial disclosure documents.
This is tasking the concept of ‘do as I say, not as I do’ to a whole other level, even by Waters’ standards. She’s previously been investigated by the House Ethics Committee for allegedly funneling bailout money to the tune of $12 million to her husband’s bank. Waters managed to barely get through that probe, but the stench still lingers.
And, oh, by the way, Waters’ BlackRock Global fund held $3 million in Russian assets while her family profited!
Oh, but of course, let’s just completely ignore all of that information and maintain focus on the crazy Trump-Russia Kremlin conspiracy, shall we?
Blatant hypocrisy from the Left is not a new phenomenon, but it’s still incredibly off putting.
Waters has done everything but light her hair on fire to call attention to Trump’s alleged misdeeds, but she’s shown zero inclination to make sure her own record is spotless.
That tells you all you need to know about how seriously she should be taken, and it’s nothing short of stunning that voters in her district are unable to see right through her.
