MP Maxine Waters (D-CA) spoke out on Friday to foolishly warn that Donald Trump might try to start a “civil war,” adding that he “must be stopped in his footsteps” be it through Impeachment or by invoking the 25th amendment.
Waters calls for investigation by Capitol Police
Waters, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, has also opened an investigation into the failure of the US Capitol Police to halt the riot in the Capitol building on Wednesday.
“There has to be law enforcement. There has to be accountability, “Waters said while appearing on” The Joe Madison Show “on SiriusXM.
“And of course, it has to be this president who lied all the way up to the insurrection he caused and the fact that all of us, many of us believe he was trying to wage a civil war He stayed in his footsteps, but we can do it: whether it’s Amendment 25 or if it’s a new way of bringing it up to Congress, ”Waters continued.
The 25th amendment provides for a president to be removed from office if, according to the Washington Times, the vice president and the majority of the cabinet deem him incapable of performing the task.

Waters did not stop there and also slammed the US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who has already submitted his resignation. She said she had already asked Sound specifically about safety.
“[Sund] told us he was in control of everything. It turned out that he had nothing under control. Nothing under control. And we were overrun, ”said Waters.
“The United States Capitol, supposedly one of the safest buildings in the country, was breached and when they climbed the wall it looked like a third world country was overtaking the government,” she added.

She added that she was afraid of snipers and asked him about the top of the buildings.
“[Y]Do you know what i was thinking about I was thinking of John Kennedy and Martin Luther King in buildings across the street and windows near those buildings and how they can target people and catch them and kill people, ”she said. “And that’s exactly what I really thought. I asked him about it. “
