Maxine Waters’ phone call with ‘Greta Thunberg’ was apparently the work of Russian pranksters

Westlake Legal Group maxine-waters Maxine Waters' phone call with 'Greta Thunberg' was apparently the work of Russian pranksters Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/maxine-waters fox-news/person/greta-thunberg fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc cb66b00d-a862-5e07-9d47-280a174b9b97 article

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., appeared to have been tricked by Russian pranksters into thinking she was speaking on the phone with Greta Thunberg and that the teenage climate activist had dirt on President Trump.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, who go by the names Vovan and Lexus on YouTube, released audio of a phone conversation allegedly between Waters and people she believed to be Thunberg and her father. The audio was accompanied by illustrations poking fun at the conversation.

MICHAEL MOORE HITS TRUMP OVER QASSEM SOLEIMANI KILLING: AMERICANS HAVEN’T EVEN HEARD OF HIM

The conversation began with “Thunberg” telling Waters that she was calling from a climate strike meeting in North Carolina where they were advocating for the protection of the fictitious “Chon-Go-Chango” islands. She asked Waters to make remarks to the meeting attendees, where she showered “Thunberg” with praise.

“Thunberg” then told Waters about a fictitious meeting she said she had with President Trump at the United Nations back in September.

“It was a really terrible meeting in the U.N. building in September with him. And I had nightmares afterwards. It’s terrible,” the Thunberg impersonator told Waters. “I saw him in the hallway. He was with security and I shouted at him, ‘Sign the Paris Climate Agreement again!’ He came over, he leaned in towards me, and said softly, ‘Listen carefully to me, little girl. You will never achieve your goal, like the congressional goal, trying to accuse me.'”

“He said you will never achieve your goal? Oh my goodness.” Waters said with shock. “Did you ask him if he would rethink signing the Paris Climate Agreement? Is that your question to him?”

“Yes, yes,” the impersonator said. “He added that … ‘You know what? I’ll tell you the truth. I really wanted to push the Ukraine president to put my competitor on trial.'”

Her supposed “father” chimed in.

“He said to her, ‘You know, little girl, nobody believe you anyway, I will tell you the truth. I really pushed on Ukrainian president and you know that you will never achieve your goals like those congressional fools who accuse me,” the fictional parent told Waters. “So nobody will believe you. You will be on trial like my competitor.”

“Oh, my God! He mentioned Ukrainian president?” Waters asked.

“Yes, he said that,” the prankster responded. “And he added, ‘Nobody will believe you anyway.'”

The prankster also alleged that his “daughter” always records her speeches and had a recording of her exchange with Trump.

“Are you going to be in Washington anytime soon? I want you to come meet with me in Washington,” Waters said.

The “father” suggested that Congress continue with the president’s impeachment and offered that the activist can make a speech on Capitol Hill, something Waters expressed interest in.

“We are working very hard. We are putting together the facts and we’re going after him,” Waters told the “Thunbergs.” “We’re going to try everything that we have to impeach him. Yes. And if the public knew that he talked to Greta like that, he made her cry, and told her she would never achieve, this would go against him too.”

“And he added that he pushed on the Ukrainian president,” the prankster father reiterated. “I think he didn’t expect that we have a record of that.”

“Well, you bring it to me,” Waters responded. “You tell me what day you can get there and we’ll arrange to meet with you as quickly as we can. … I will make myself available whenever you get there.”

Waters’ congressional office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Waters isn’t the only lawmaker to be fooled by the Russian pranksters. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., was also apparently pranked into believing that they had “naked Trump” photos back in 2018.

Maxine Waters says Trump will invite Putin to the White House if the Senate doesn’t remove him

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., warned Friday that President Trump will invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House if the Senate doesn’t remove him.

Waters made the remarks on Twitter after a contentious week in D.C.

TRUMP SIGNS SPENDING BILL THAT EARMARKS FUNDS FOR NEW SPACE FORCE

“Revelation by former WH officials proves what we’ve known all along: Trump is #PutinsPuppet,” Waters tweeted. “Trump repeated Putin’s talking point that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the ‘16 election. Mark my words. If the Senate doesn’t remove him, Trump will invite Putin to the WH next yr.”

WHAT DOES PELOSI WITHHOLDING ARTICLES FROM SENATE MEAN FOR THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS?

Waters, a frequent Trump critic, was apparently referring to a Washington Post article that cited multiple former White House officials who claimed on condition of anonymity that Trump seized on the theory that Ukraine, not Russia interfered in the 2016 election because Putin suggested it to him.

One aide told The Post Trump said he believed Ukraine interfered because “Putin told me.”

Waters was one of the more than 200 Democrats and one Independent who voted to impeach the president on Wednesday on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress charges.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has not yet sent the impeachment articles to the Senate where a trial would take place and is considering withholding them until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees to bring in witnesses the Democrats want to hear from.

Ben Carson accuses Maxine Waters of ‘shamelessness,’ lacking ‘basic manners’ in letter

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson on Monday accused Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., of lacking “basic manners” over a letter she sent to President Trump last month saying his “shamelessness knows no bounds,” according to a report.

Waters’ Oct. 28 letter demanded answers about the administration’s potential plan to push homeless Californians off the street and out of homeless camps, Politico reported.

“Shamelessness,”  Carson wrote, “is a career politician of 30 years laying blame. Shamelessness is allowing more than 55,000 Americans to live on the very streets they represent,” he said about her district in South Los Angeles County.

Carson wrote that he’s sent multiple letters to Waters’ office to discuss homelessness in her district but claimed she’s refused to meet with him.

“Basic manners elude you and it seems that instead of producing results, you’re more interested in producing cheap headlines at the President’s expense — like a true career politician,” he added, according to Politico.

Maxine Waters: There’s ‘absolutely’ enough evidence to draft articles of impeachment against Trump

Westlake Legal Group maxine-waters Maxine Waters: There's 'absolutely' enough evidence to draft articles of impeachment against Trump Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/person/maxine-waters fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc c43241cc-9f92-5feb-a771-1d35aa167c7b article

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said Thursday that Democrats “absolutely” have enough evidence to draft articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Watters told CNN “Cuomo Prime Time” anchor Chris Cuomo that she watched Trump “very closely” during the 2016 election and decided at the time that he had a “flawed character.” She added that she thought Trump was “going to be a problem” and said he “turned out to be everything” that she suspected.

“Do you think you know enough at this point, congresswoman, to say there is enough here for articles of impeachment?” Cuomo asked.

“Absolutely,” Waters quickly answered.

“Already?” the CNN anchor reacted with shock.

“The president himself admitted that he had a telephone conversation with the president of Ukraine,” Waters said. “He also said he talked to him about Biden. And I believe that in that conversation, he did exactly what is being said about the conversation by others — that he was asking this president [Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine] to help him with the kind of investigation that would lead into dirt about Biden.”

Waters has been one of the most outspoken critics of President Trump and one of the first lawmakers to call for his impeachment.

The California representative went on to defend the intelligence community whistleblower who flagged Trump’s interactions with Zelensky, insisting they aren’t “leaking” but that they’re “concerned about this country.”

Maxine Waters claims ‘more to come’ in Russia investigation, defends Mueller report

House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., indicated that her committee and others would release more findings from the Russia investigation that could play a role ithe impeachment inquiry announced on Tuesday.

“There’s lots more coming from all six of our committees,” Waters told CNN on Wednesday. “Whether it is the Intelligence Committee or the Foreign Affairs Committee or the Ways and Means Committee, this president has clearly defined himself in so many ways, disrespected the Constitution of the United States, embraced Putin.”

Waters specified that more information would surface regarding collusion with Russia and Ukraine. “When you talk about Russia, you have to bring in Ukraine,” she said. She pointed to controversy surrounding Ukraine and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced an official impeachment inquiry on Tuesday over concerns that  Trump’s administration suppressed a whistleblower who tried reporting on his July phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Democrats have alleged that the president implicitly pressured Zelensky into interfering in the 2020 presidential election.

CBS ANCHOR ASKS IF UKRAINE CONTROVERSY A ‘BIG BOWL OF NOTHING’ AFTER TRUMP RELEASES TRANSCRIPT

It’s unclear how the Russia investigation will influence the impeachment inquiry, but progressive Democrats, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., could push to include its findings in official articles of impeachment. “The president has committed several impeachable offenses,” Ocasio-Cortez told reporters after Pelosi’s remarks on impeachment.

Pelosi, though, long resisted impeachment as details surfaced in the Russia investigation, confining House efforts to investigations by Democrat-led committees in the House.

Waters, a vocal supporter of impeaching the president, led one of the committees tasked with investigating Trump’s bank account records as part of a broader probe into potential money laundering and other improper transactions.

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation yielded indictments on money laundering by some Trump campaign associates. But his report, released in April, determined it didn’t have enough evidence to accuse Trump of criminal conspiracy with Russia. It also declined to recommend prosecution for obstruction of justice.

When CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota suggested the Mueller report didn’t “deliver” what Democrats were hoping for, Waters pushed back.

“No, that is not true. That is not true. Don’t forget, there was ample information there for obstruction of justice. Ample information. If you are referring to the collusion part of it, it was not as strong, but there’s still a lot more to come about collusion,” she said.

Dan Crenshaw calls Maxine Waters’ Iran comments a ‘disgrace,’ accuses her of ‘repeating lies’

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., drew fire from Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, on Twitter for accusing President Trump of provoking a conflict with Iran.

The U.S. military’s Central Command released a video earlier this month showing Iranian forces removing an unexploded mine from one of the two ships that were attacked near the Strait of Hormuz. Iran has denied any involvement in the conflict.

Trump called off a military strike against Tehran after they shot down an American drone they claimed was in Iranian airspace.  It was valued at over $100 million. Iran has since claimed they have the capability to continue shooting down American drones if necessary.

Waters said Trump didn’t deserve credit for showing restraint and questioned the nature of America’s surveillance of Iran.

Crenshaw responded less than six hours later and called Waters’ comments “shocking” and accused her of repeating falsities from the Iranian regime. He also called her conduct disgraceful.

These comments come after Trump announced new sanctions via executive order against Iran on Monday, during a press gathering in the Oval Office.

“Today’s action follows a series of aggressive behaviors by the Iranian regime in recent weeks including shooting down a U.S. drone,” Trump said. “[The sanctions] will deny the supreme leader and the supreme leader’s office and those closely affiliated with him and the office access to key financial resources and support.”

California congressional candidate Omar Navarro, who is running against Rep. Maxine Waters, said during an appearance on “Fox and Friends” Thursday that if there’s anyone who should be impeached, it’s the California Democrat.

Navarro, who wants to take Waters’ district in the 2020 election, said his opponent could be removed from Congress for “disorderly behavior,” referring to her previous calls for confrontation and relentless pushing of the conspiracy that Trump colluded with the Russian government.

He also said his candidacy reflects the people’s views in the district since he offers something to unite behind rather than causing further division in the country.

“You know when I walk around in my district and I talk to voters, I talk to different voters, talk to the Hispanic community, which is the largest community, 54 percent of my district, you have to look what are the demographics,” he said.

“When I look at the demographics, I talk to the voters knocking on doors, people want to see someone that’s going to unite them,” Navarro added.

“They are seeing Maxine Waters dividing them. They are tired of it. They had her over 30 years. She has been in public service for 40 years. It’s time for a change. Time for someone that will bring back jobs, bring back stability and common sense into our district.”

— Omar Navarro, Republican running for Congress against Rep. Maxine Waters

The Republican candidate also reacted to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s early Thursday announcement that he was running, saying he’s using identity politics.

“That is the typical playbook of the Democrats. They use identity politics to divide people. They divide my community by using identity politics,” he said of Biden’s campaign launch. “I was Latino growing up, my parents are from Mexico and Cuba. I noticed this growing up, I used to see Democrats from all over Los Angeles using identity politics at their best.”

But Navarro said such divisive politics will backfire on Biden as it will only drive people away from the party. “One thing I’ve seen from the Democratic Party, that they have been pushing a lot of people away from the Democratic Party,” he said, pointing to increasingly hotheaded rhetoric by others.

Mnuchin has fiery exchange with Rep. Maxine Waters during hearing

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin got into a fiery exchange with U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters on Tuesday during a committee hearing with lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

At the end of a three-and-half-hour testimony before the House Appropriations Committee and Financial Services Committee, which is chaired by Waters, Mnuchin interrupted the hearing to remind the committee of a prior agreement that he would be able to leave by 5 p.m.

Mnuchin said that he was scheduled to meet with a senior official from the Bahrain government. After running overtime, he said he would be willing to stay until 5:15 and return at a later date to testify before Congress.

“It will be embarrassing if I keep this person waiting for a long period of time,” Mnuchin said.

His departure, however, did not come without a heated back-and-forth with Waters.

“Unfortunately, we are all pressed for time,” said the California congresswoman, whose committee grilled Mnuchin about his plans to respond to Democrats’ requests for access to President Trump’s tax returns.

Waters refused to formally dismiss Mnuchin, whom she asked to stay for an additional 10 minutes, Bloomberg reported. “This is a new way and it’s a new day. And it’s a new chair. And I have the gavel,” she said.

Mnuchin said he’d “rethink” whether he would return to sit before the committee if he was going to be poorly treated.

“If you’d wish to keep me here so that I don’t have my important meeting and continue to grill me, then we can do that,” he said. “I will cancel my meeting and I will not be back here. I will be very clear if that’s the way you’d like to have this relationship.”

After Waters proceeded to continue with the hearing, Mnuchin again chimed in to clarify whether or not Waters was “instructing” him to stay, and therefore, cancel his meeting.

“You made me an offer that I accepted,” Waters said. “No, I’m not ordering you. I said you may leave anytime you want and you said OK.”

Mnuchin replied that he could not leave until Waters dismissed him. “You’re supposed to take the gavel and bang it,” he said.

Waters then interrupted him, saying, “Please do not instruct me as to how I am to conduct this committee.”

Mnuchin was eventually advised by staff that he was not obligated to stay and could leave. Before Waters ended the hearing at 5:30 p.m., Mnuchin withdrew his offer to return before the committee in May.
