Maxine Waters said that ‘impeachment is not good enough’ for President Trump, she wants him imprisoned and in solitary confinement.
Waters has been very vocal about wanting President Trump removed from office, and has been calling for him to be impeached since the day he won the election. The whistleblowers complaint has renewed her calls, but she wants more than impeachment.
Waters took to Twitter on Tuesday and accused Trump of suggesting that the whistleblower – who he believes is a spy – should be killed as he faces scrutiny triggered by the complaint, which alleged Trump set up a quid pro quo with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for American military aid, even though there is no proof of this taking place.

I'm calling on the GOP to stop Trump's filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed. Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.

Waters, who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, called on the Republican Party to stop using “Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” before adding that she thought Trump needed to be put into solitary confinement.
“But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she added.
Waters had been referring to Trump’s remarks recorded at a private event in New York City last week, where he called the whistleblower who provided details about his call with the President of Ukraine “almost a spy,” suggested they had committed treason, and added “We used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”
