Maxine Waters: I’m Shocked Sessions Hasn’t Resigned | All In | MSNBC


SHOW, THE BEAT. MONDAY AT 6:00 P.M. JOINING ME, CONGRESSWOMAN WATERS. YOU TWEETED EARLIER TODAY THAT SEAN SPICER, THE NOW OUTGOING SECRETARY, YOU SAID CONGRATULATIONS, SEAN SPICER. YOU HAVE MORE GUTS THAN JEFF SESSIONS. WERE YOU SURPRISE THAT HAD JEFF SESSIONS DIDN’T RESIGN WHEN THE PRESIDENT HE SUGGESTED SUCH OPEN LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN HIM AND ARE YOU THINKING HE MIGHT BE THE NEXT TO TENDER HIS RESIGNATION?>>I WAS ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED THAT HE DID NOT RESIGN. I CAN’T IMAGINE ANYONE WITH SELF-RESPECT BEING TALKED ABOUT LIKE THAT BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PUBLICLY AND WANTING TO REMAIN IN THE JOB. I WAS SHOCKED. AND SO I DON’T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH HIM. OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG. IF THEY HAVE INFORMATION HAS BEEN INTERCEPTED AND RECORDED AND EVEN IF IT IS CLASSIFIED, THAT INFORMATION CAN BE PLAYED WITH MEMBERS OF CONGRESS IN A CLASSIFIED SESSION.>>AND LET’S GO BACK AND LISTEN TO JUNE 13. AND THIS WAS JEFF SESSIONS TELLING HIS COLLEAGUES, AND TELLING TO THE INTERACTIONS THAT HE HAD AND WHAT THEY WERE ABOUT AND NOT NOT.>>LET ME STATE THIS CLEARLY. I HAVE NOT MET WITH OR HAD ANY CONVERSATION WITH ANY RUSSIANS OR ANY FOREIGN OFFICIALS CONCERNING AN ELECTION IN THE UNITED STATES.>>WHAT HE IS SAYING, NO INTERFERENCE IN THE UNITED STATES. IF THESE WERE TO BE BELIEVED WASN’T ABOUT INTERFERENCE. IT WAS ABOUT FUTURE POLICY. IN YOUR VIEW, WOULD THAT BE ENOUGH IN.>>IT MAY OR MAY NOT. IF PERHAPS HE WAS SAYING, I THINK THE PRESIDENT LEADS THE SANCTIONS. PERHAPS THAT CONVERSATION THAT DOES NOT RISE WITH HIM HAVING INTERFERED IN ANY WAY OR SHARED INFORMATION IN ANY WAY THAT WOULD CAUSE THEM TO BE ACCUSED OF COLLUSION. IF IN FACT IT WAS ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN, SOMETHING THEY HAD COMPLIED WITH, THAT THE RUSSIANS HAD SHARED WITH THEM HE IN ORDER TO FAVOR TRUMP OVER HILLARY. THEN THAT IS GOING TO BE PROBLEMATIC. BUT THE REAL PROBLEM IS, WHETHER OR NOT HE IS LAGGING. IT DOESN’T MATTER. IF HE LIED, IT WAS, BILL CLINTON WAS IMPEACHED FOR LYING. THAT’S WHERE JEFF SESSIONS WILL HAVE A REAL PROBLEM. I’M WONDERING IF THIS CONCERNS YOU. THE “WASHINGTON POST” HAS A FREE WORD OUT IN WHICH THEY TALK ABOUT THE TRUMP TEAM SEEMING TO CONTROL OR BLOCK. SAYING BUILDING A CASE AGAINST WHAT THEY SLAG CONFLICTS OF INTEREST. CLEARLY DONALD TRUMP WOULD LIKE TO IN THE BEST OF ALL WORLDS FOR HIM FIRE BOB MUELLER. THE EASIEST WAY TO DO THAT SOW GET A NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL WHO IS NOT RECUSED ON RUSSIA AND HAVE HIM DO IT. ARE YOU CONCERN THAT HAD THIS WEEK WILL THIS INTERESTING TIMING, SO QUICK WILL YOU AFTER “THE NEW YORK TIMES” INTERVIEW IN WHICH TRUMP SAID HE HAD NO CONFIDENCE, MIGHT PUSH THE BALL DOWN THE ROAD IN.>>I THINK, I BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT WOULD LIKE THE GET RID OF MUELLER. I THINK THE PRESIDENT UNDERSTANDS REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS SAYING, I DON’T THINK YOU’D BETTER DO THAT. I THINK THIS WOULD BE VERY CONCERNING. I THINK HE WOULD RATHER NOT DO IT. BUT KNOWING HIM AND WHAT I’VE LEARNED ABOUT HIM. YES, I THINK SESSIONS IS EITHER GOING TO STEP DOWN OR HE WILL BE FIRED. HE’LL FIND AN ATTORNEY GENERAL THAT HE CAN DEPEND ON AND HE MAY TRY TO THINK THAT PERSON FIRE MUELLER. SO ALL OF THIS, ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. EACH DAY THIS DRIP, DRIP, DRIP OF INFORMATION, THESE RE LAGSS ARE DOING EXACTLY WHAT I’VE ALREADY PREDICTED. THAT IS, IT WILL LEAD RIGHT TO IMPEACHMENT.>>I HAVE TO ASK YOU ON THAT NOTE. IT SEAL LIKE THE INTERESTS OF THE WHITE HOUSE ARE ALIGNED IN THIS ONE SENSE. BOTH WOULD LIKE THE RUSSIAGATE CONTROVERSY TO GO AWAY. DO YOU, CAN YOU NAME A FEW REPUBLICAN WHO’S YOU THINK WOULD ACTUALLY OBJECT TO A NEW ATTORNEY GENERAL COMING IN AND SAYING, WE FINISH THE INVESTIGATION, WE FOUND NOTHING. EVERYONE IS INNOCENT HERE. IT IS ALL OH. IF A NEW AG WOULD DO THAT, THAT COULD HELP REPUBLICANS. THEY COULD MOVE TO CUTTING TAXES AND WORKING ON MEDICAID.>>I THINK THEY HAVE GONE FAUF FAR ENOUGH WITH THIS PRESIDENT. DEFENDING HIM, EXCUSING HIM. I THINK THE FIRING OF MUELLER WOULD PUSH THEM OVER THE TOP. IT WOULD BE MORE THAN JUST A FEW. I THINK A NUMBER OF THEM WOULD.>>SO WE THANK YOU FOR BEING. TUCKER CARLSON CLAIMED LAST NIGHT THAT YOU ARE RUNNING FOR DEGREES 2020. IS THERE ANY TRUTH THE TO THAT?>>NO. JUST BECAUSE I’M GOING TO HAL HAPPEN TO BE AT A DEMOCRATIC MEETING HE FOR A COLLEAGUE. THEY’RE TRYINGED TO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO MAKE PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ME. YOU’LL BE HEARING A LOT MORE FROM THESE PEOPLE ARE ALL ALIGNED, AROUND TRYING TO DISCREDIT MAXINE WATERS BECAUSE
