Congresswoman Waters, the Liberal Representative from California, has made it clear that she is after Trump. The Democrat spoke out on the 13th, at the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City saying “I will go and take Trump out Tonight.” Take out meaning impeach as that has been her goal for months.
The Rep has been after Trump for a while as she feels Trump mishandled the NFL kneeling issue. She feels Trump’s response dodges the issue that the players were trying to bring attention to. She doesn’t see the disrespect that the players are engaging in and doesn’t seem to care about patriotism.

Two days later on October 15th she was at The Aids Walk Fundraiser in L.A., where she felt the need to bash Trump further:
“And we have, unfortunately, an unstable, erratic person in the White House. We don’t know what this president will do, or say, or tweet from one day to the next. Don’t forget, this is not a political event, but I’m heading toward impeachment, Waters said with a snicker.”
The snickering Waters found herself in the limelight previously as a video of her congressional hearing went viral and she kept repeating the phrase “reclaiming my time,” when questioning Hon. Mnuchin.
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.
