Maxine Waters Hopes ‘Cohen Tapes’ Give Democrats ‘Treasure Trove Of Information’
Democratic California Rep. Maxine Waters hopes an FBI raid on Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, provides Democrats with a “treasure trove” of information with which to impeach Trump, she said in a new interview.
“I am certainly working toward his impeachment,” Waters told Variety Magazine in an interview published Wednesday. “I think Mueller is doing a great job. I am hopeful that the Cohen tapes will be a treasure trove of information that will help move us toward that,” Waters said.
Waters has been calling for Trump’s impeachment since before he took office. She previously guaranteed Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign but now appears to be banking on the Cohen probe to give Democrats the ammunition they need to impeach the president.
FBI officials, working with U.S. Attorneys in New York, raided Cohen’s office and hotel room on April 9, as part of an investigation into payments Cohen made to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. Cohen commonly taped his conversations with clients, according to The Washington Post.
Once Democrats get rid of President Trump, Waters told Variety, Vice President Mike Pence will be the next to go.
“No, I don’t think so,” she said when asked if Pence would be a better president than Trump. “But we can easily get him out in 2020.”
