Should she somehow succeed in her efforts to impeach President Trump, California Representative Maxine Waters doesn’t intend to stop there.

Her next target? Vice President Mike Pence.


Waters was in Los Angeles on Saturday accepting an award from the Stonewall Young Democrats in Los Angeles when she told the crowd about a conversation with someone who asked her about Pence.

“I had a conversation here today, when someone asked, ‘Well what about Pence? If you were able to impeach, Pence will be worse,” Waters recalled. (RELATED: Maxine Waters Doubles Down On Harassing Trump Officials In Public)

“And I said, ‘Look, one at a time.'” said the congresswoman as the audience applauded. “You knock one off — one at a time. We’ll be ready for Pence. We’ll get him too.”

“We cannot be intimidated,” she said. “We cannot be made to fear anybody who would interfere with our ability to have a decent quality of life.”

This isn’t the first time the California lawmaker has broached the topic of impeaching the vice president. Just last month she mixed Pence up with Russian President Vladimir Putin in a conversation with Joy Behar on “The View.”

“Do you think Pence will be better than Trump?” asked Behar.

“No, and when we finish with Trump we have to go after Putin,” responded Waters.

Both times, Waters neglected to offer any basis upon which Pence would be impeached and subsequently convicted, which would be the only way to remove him from office.

Waters’ impeachment talk over the past several months has even scared some Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi and Connecticut Rep. Jim Himes, who fear her excessive rhetoric could hurt their party in the midterms.
