Rep. Waters: "Greatest Desire" Is to Impeach Trump

"I have not called for the impeachment yet", Waters said. "How can a President who is acting in the manner that he's acting".

She further explained: "Let me just say the statement I made was a statement in response to questions and pleas that I am getting from many citizens across this country". But, Pelosi added, "that is not grounds for impeachment". "He's doing it himself", she said. What are we going to do?

"When and if he breaks the law, that is when something like that would come up".

Rep. Waters, who stated after the election that she would not meet with the president, boycotted the January 20 inauguration and questioned his legitimacy as chief executive. "It is risky to the United States of America".

"I'm not here to talk about impeachment today", she told the gathered reporters shortly after Waters made her comments.

On Friday, Waters said she hoped Trump would not serve for four years: "And my greatest is to lead him right into impeachment". Last week, a federal judge said Trump had overstepped when he put a blanket travel ban on refugees and most travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.

"Instead of fighting for hardworking families abused by our economy as he promised in the campaign", Pelosi said, "the president and his billionaire cabinet have abandoned Main Street to enable Wall Street's corrosive profiteering of the banks on the back of hardworking Americans".

"While it's only a couple of weeks since the inauguration ... we've seen nothing that we can work - that I can work - with President [Trump] on", Pelosi said. ("We don't need stinking bridges!" says Moore.) These air taxis will only need ranges of between 50 to 100 miles, and Moore thinks that they can be at least partially recharged while passengers are boarding or exiting the aircraft.

Waters and Pelosi called the Monday morning news conference to rail against Trump's executive order directing the Treasury secretary to review the Dodd-Frank law.

Democrats argued that Trump had campaigned on the message that he would be tough on Wall Street, but now was cozying up to bankers and trying to aid their interests at the expense of another potential market collapse. "They want to take us back".
