Maxine Waters is gunning for Donald Trump.
The California Democrat just ascended to a powerful new position.
And Waters’ new seat of power allowed her to issue this threat to Donald Trump that will make his life a living hell.
By virtue of the Democrats winning control of the House of Representatives, Maxine Waters is now a committee chair.
But she isn’t running some backwater committee with no real power in Washington.
Waters is in charge of the Financial Services Committee.
That seat allows her oversight into a host of financial institutions and matters, including digging through every aspect of President Trump’s business empire.
On the day Democrats officially took power, Waters jokingly threatened to only spend some of her time investigating the President.
“Those who say I’m going to spend all my time trying to get subpoenas and trying to do investigations, and I’m not going to do that. I’m just going to spend some of my time,” Waters ranted.
But her threat was no laughing matter.
Waters also ripped the President for blasting Chairman of the Federal Reserve Jerome Powell for trying to tank the economy ahead of the 2020 election.
The California Democrat defended the Federal Reserve Chairman’s economic central planning because she knows Powell is working on behalf of the swamp to get rid of Trump by cooling off the historic economic boom.
“The financial markets need certainty, and a Federal Reserve that can independently set monetary policy. The recent actions of the President and the Treasury Secretary, however, have been erratic and are creating uncertainty and instability in the markets,” Waters said in a statement. “It would be in our nation’s best interest if they stopped what they are doing.”
This should come as no surprise to President Trump or his supporters.
Last November, Waters threatened to investigate Trump’s ties to Deutsche Bank.
“Deutsche Bank is key to understanding the relationship between the president and members of the president’s family and money laundering and all of that,” Waters had said. “We hope that we can move forward in a responsible way.”
Deutsche Bank plays a central role in the left’s fever dream conspiracy theory that Trump has secretly acted as a Russian agent for the last 30 years.
The institution was sanctioned for its dealings with several Russians, and since they also loaned Trump money, liberals like Waters like to claim – without citing evidence – that Vladimir Putin and other high-level Russians must have laundered money to Trump’s businesses through Deutsche Bank as part of an international conspiracy to steal the 2016 Presidential election.
At the time, Waters was careful not to frame her desire for a political pound of flesh as revenge for Democrats losing the 2016 election.
“We don’t want that determined as investigation so that we create the kind of retaliation the president is talking about,” Waters claimed. “We think it is improper for anybody to be talking about retaliation.”
But Waters only offered that reassurance because Democrats had just won the election and they were afraid of scaring the stock market by bragging about launching investigations that could destabilize the United States government.
Now that they are officially in power, Waters is making it clear the gloves are off.
