Watching the Dems grow spines is a beautiful thing to behold.
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters has always been a no-nonsense Democrat. But she has completely lost patience with the fools in the White House.
On Tuesday, Waters appeared on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes. And she pulled no punches. She talked about Russia and said what anti-Trumpers have been waiting to hear since Trump got elected. Other Congresspeople and Senators really should take note.
Waters pointed out,
“I believe that Tillerson’s real job is to get in here and get those sanctions lifted. But all of them want them lifted because this clan, this Kremlin clan, is all about getting the oil and gas money, and doing the drilling. And they need this President. They need this President to get these sanctions lifted. And don’t forget, the second Executive Order that was signed by the President, that was 1504, which basically would undo the work that we’ve done with Dodd-Frank in making these oil companies disclose the money they were using to bribe these countries with.”
“1504 was very important because Exxon and others now will not have to disclose all of the bribes that they’re doing.”
Waters questioned whether or not the American people were paying attention to all of this corruption. She said it was perfectly clear to her.
“They hacked into the election because they had to be sure that Donald Trump got elected so that they could help him with what I think is a HUGE deal, not only to lift these sanctions, but to take over all of these Soviet countries and pull them back into the Soviet Union so that they could have access to all of these resources.”
Then she really made her opinion about the Trump administration known and voiced how most of us feel.
“This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are.”
