Maxine Waters said “follow the money,” that will lead to proof of President Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. Unfortunately for her, we have followed the money, and it led to a brutal truth that caused her own skeletons to fall out of the closet.
Waters’ silly “follow the money” statement regarding Trump and Russia came earlier this year in a tweet.

As The Blaze points out, Waters’ tirades didn’t end with the tweet.
California Rep. Maxine Waters has been relentlessly pointing fingers at President Donald Trump and his administration’s ties to Russia. Waters is such a fan of the accusation, that she has even recently speculated that Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s departure from his seat was due to his own connections with Russia; a conspiracy that she has admitted to having no evidence of.
Due to these alleged connections, Waters has been banging the drum for Trump’s impeachment daily on any show or rally that will have her on. She has even taken to social media to promote the idea of forcing Trump out.
Get ready for impeachment.

Those are bold words, especially coming from a woman who has her own financial ties to Russia, according to Red State Watcher. Take a look at Waters’ 2015 disclosure statement that details her family’s investments in Merrill Lynch Blackrock’s Russia-connected Global Allocation and Balanced funds:
Got News explains, “California Democrat Representative Maxine Waters held $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, even while she hypocritically calls for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment over his financial connections to Russia, according to her most recently available House financial disclosure documents.”
The Blackrock funds are described as follows:
A Fund may invest in the equity securities of companies that explore for, extract, process or deal in precious metals (e.g., gold, silver and platinum), and in asset-based securities indexed to the value of such metals. … The major producers of gold include the Republic of South Africa, Russia, Canada, the United States, Brazil and Australia. … A Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities issued by companies located in Russia.
A 2015 SEC filing from Blackrock confirms the funds’ Russian investments.
Waters cannot deny this hypocritical connection, which is likely why she appears to be slightly backing off of the Trump accusations. She even admitted earlier that she has not seen proof of a Trump/Russia alliance.
She's finally admitted it.

It is becoming increasingly apparent that the entire Trump/Russia scandal is a machination of liberals who are upset that Hillary Clinton is not our president. Barack Obama’s administration was happy to enable the false narrative, and of course, Clinton would much rather have the world believe that she lost because of foreign involvement rather than taking the blame herself.
Maxine Waters and the others will continue to bash President Donald Trump with wild narratives and fictitious claims, but the good news is, their tactics will continue to backfire on them. One would think that Democrats would have learned their lesson by now. You really shouldn’t throw stones when you live in a glass house.
