Washington, October 2 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump should not only be impeached but jailed and that in a solitary confinement says, California Representative Maxine Waters. One of the first Democrats to call for the president’s impeachment, Waters made the comment on Tuesday.
The lawmaker’s tweet came in response to Trump’s attacks on the intelligence community whistleblower complaint that has sparked a formal impeachment inquiry by House Democrats.
“I'm calling on the GOP to stop Trump's filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies and using mob language implying they should be killed. Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she said.
Trump has apparently pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden, his potential opponent for the 2020 presidential election, and his son, Hunter, before Kiev can receive the US military aid. The president is trying to find the whistleblower, whose revelations lie at the heart of the impeachment proceedings.
