Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was on MSNBC’s “All In,” on Wednesday rambling on about President Trump’s Russia collusion connections, saying that pardoning former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio was a message that he would pardon anyone who finds themselves facing criminal charges in the Russia investigation.
Waters stated, “[T]his president, who in your face said, ‘You mess with me, anybody that you try to indict or you try to criminalize, I’m going to pardon them and I’ll show you, just as I’ve done with Joe Arpaio.’ So, I like the idea that Mueller is not frightened. He’s not backing he is going to do his job.”
Anchor Chris Hayes asked, “Your point is that you felt that what he was communicating with the Arpaio pardon was that, that essentially he would be there to pardon people that might find themselves in the teeth of a criminal investigation?”
Waters replied, “Yes, that is correctly stated, that, I do believe it was a signal. I don’t know what he said, how he said it, what he said, but I do believe he was sending a signal.”
She admits that she has no idea what he said, or when he said it, so she made something up – unbelievable.
Last week, Mad Max Tweeted that President Trump pardoned Sheriff Joe because he is a part of the white nationalists and the KKK.
I'm not surprised Trump pardoned racial profiler Arpaio. White Nationalists, KKK, & Duke celebrated Trump's election b/c he is one of them!
