Republican Looking to Unseat Maxine Waters Rips Her for Her Attacks on Trump: ‘We Must Impeach You’

Omar Navarro, the Republican congressional candidate looking to swoop in to take Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-Calif.) seat, is calling for her to be “impeached” from Congress amid her continued attacks on the president.

In response to Waters calling supporters of President Donald Trump “unpatriotic,” Navarro responded that instead, “We must impeach you from Congress for encouraging threats towards Americans and our President.”

On Fox News on Thursday, Navarro sounded off on Waters — who has frequently called for Trump’s ousting — noting that she may need to be the one to be booted from her role in government.

The California congressional candidate claimed that Waters must be impeached for her “disorderly behavior,” adding that American voters within their district “want to see somebody that’s going to unite them.”

“They’re seeing Maxine Waters as dividing them, and they’re tired of it,” he added. “[…] I think that it’s time for a change. It’s time for someone who’s going to bring back jobs, bring back stability, common sense into our district, and I feel that I can do that.”

During an MSNBC interview on Tuesday, Waters claimed “this president is more than arrogant,” adding, “This president has defied everybody and everything.”

On the pressure of impeachment, Waters said:

“As the level of interest and the level of not putting up with this president any longer comes to the forefront and lays on, and leans on, and pressures the Congress of the United States, we’re going to have to do it. We’re going to have to impeach. I just wish it was sooner than later.”

In a series of tweets attacking Trump on Tuesday, the Democratic congresswoman wrote that “we must impeach Putin’s president Trump!”

“Ninety percent of the calls and mail I’m receiving in my office support impeachment of Trump and so do I,” Waters also tweeted.

She added that “Mueller kicked the impeachment ball to the Congress. […] What more do we need?”

While Navarro fell short in the 2018 midterm elections, losing with 22.3 percent of the votes compared to Waters holding 77.7 percent, the Republican candidate is looking to take over California’s 43rd House district in 2020.
