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.”

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

Maxine Waters during hearing Gerren Keith Gaynor fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/hearings fox-news/politics fox-news/person/maxine-waters fox news fnc/politics fnc article 6a068498-3e2f-5c74-bc59-38958b960269

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.
