Maxine Waters was elected to Congress in the year of 1990. During her time in Congress, her family has made over a million dollars in revenue from Waters’ government connections. Throughout Waters’ 27 years in Congress, she only managed to pass three bills: a Haiti relief bill, the renaming of a post office, and a modification of the national flood insurance program. Additionally, Waters failed to gain much popularity in Congress. Citizens For Responsibility and Ethics in Washington labeled her as the most corrupt member in Congress during the years of 2005, 2006, 2009, and 2011.
Maxine Waters now on MSNBC arguing that if Clinton had been elected, she should have fired Comey, but that Trump shouldn't.

A few years ago, Waters was charged by the House ethics committee for allegedly securing bailout funds for a bank in which her husband owned stock. She received three counts of violating House rules in addition to the federal ethics code. These charges were linked to her moves to establish a meeting between OneUnited bank representatives and Treasury officials in 2008. The committee stated that Waters’ moves to benefit OneUnited bank would serve as personally beneficial to her own interests due to her husband’s ownership of stock. The Congresswoman and her attorney filed a motion to have the charges dismissed, but unsurprisingly, the ethics panel denied it.
Maxine Waters is a prime example of how power corrupts. The woman has been in office for nearly three decades and her reputation as a Congresswoman is abysmal. Waters’ situation is bigger than Democrats vs. Republicans. It speaks to a system which allows the elites to get away with scandals, corruption, and dishonesty. There must be serious changes put in place if we are to ever evolve as a nation.

Yea? And WHO kept re-electing her?
The most ignorant leeches in america…..that’s who
Sadly, that’s the majority…..
And yet despite this, the Fake News has elevated her to the status of “expert Trumpologist” giving her non-stop air time since January 20th. Why would that be?
Maxine is a typical progressive (pronounced socialist), believing the gov’t knows best, must hand down dictates to protect the unwashed masses, but that they, “the elites”, are above the law. The government is too big, and is running roughshod over the people, but the govt is a reflection of the people. Today’s American believes, evidently, that the govt is there to be our provider and solve all our problems. Government is NOT a savior … it is only a necessary evil, and should be kept as small as possible
Americans don’t know our founding principles, don’t understand free market economics, or what actually made America strong and prosperous And, until Americans learn the truth, and LIVE that truth, the country will continue to live under socialist tyranny.
Throw her and the other corrupt congresspersons out and jail them.
Maxine should be in prison. Her attacks on President Trump are obviously meant to draw attention away from her own criminality. She doesn’t even live in the district she “represents,” choosing instead to live in lavish wealth among the white people she pretends to despise.
lets not forget her role in the housing bubble. i love how the left cries “lack of regulation” in hindsight when Republicans were begging them to reign in FMFM…
