The House Ethics Committee has finally charged Maxine Waters (D-CA) with corruption.
In 2008, Maxine arranged a meeting between the Treaѕury Department and representatives of OneUnited bank – where her husband was a notable shareholder.
As an individual from the House Financial Committee, she could specifically contact then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to talk with him about gathering with minority-possessed banks. Through her endeavors, OneUnited bank could get $12 million in government bailout financing to help cover expected misfortunes from the fall of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
If OneUnited had gone under, Maxine’s husband could have lost as much as $350,000. Oh, and she hired her own grandson (Mikael Moore) to work as her chief of staff.
By contacting then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to request a meeting, allegedly for a group of minority-owned banks, but then arranging for only one bank – OneUnited, in which she had a financial interest – to attend, Rep. Waters violated House conflict of interest rules,” argues Melanie Sloan, Executive Director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW).

In 2011, Maxine made it onto CREW’s list of “most corrupt” politicians. Today, at age 78, she has emerged as one of the country’s leading critics of President Trump.Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show calls Maxine the “ideal example” for “the congressional gathering who energetically contradicts Donald Trump, declines to work with him despite the fact that he’s broadened his hand over the passageway, despite the fact that he’s a man that has set up disciple programs in Maxine Waters’ area… this nation is on a crash course with common war in light of individuals like Maxine Waters.”
Author’s Note: Maxine has a long history of suspicious behavior. She is a crazy person who has been elected to the House 10 times. The media likes to cover her antics but has mostly avoided covering her corruption charges. This could actually be a move by Democrats to get rid of her.
