Maxine Waters: AG Sessions Is 'Very Dangerous' and 'Racist'

(Washington Post's "Cape Up")

By    |   Tuesday, 09 May 2017 12:46 PM

Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters unloaded on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling him a "racist" and asserting her belief the former senator thinks it his duty to "keep minorities in their place."

The 13-term California representative made the comments last week on Jonathan Capehart's podcast, published Tuesday in The Washington Post.

"We have someone in our attorney general, someone who's a throwback to the Jim Crow days of the south," Waters told Capehart.

"I think Jeff Sessions is very dangerous. I think he's a racist, and I think he absolutely believes that it's his job to keep minorities in their place," Waters said. "He comes from a time and a place in his history where this was the order of the day. And I think he would go back to that, given his power he has now, his influence. I think we have to watch him, we have to keep an eye on him and be prepared to push back."

Waters in recent weeks sparred with former Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly over a perceived racist comment he made about the congresswoman's appearance, a flashpoint for the beginning of the end to the longtime host's tenure at the cable news channel.

And she has been outspoken all along about the legitimacy of Donald Trump's presidency, an issue she again hit on to Capehart.

"I'm so offended by this president, that I think it requires me to speak truth to power, say it like it is and to be as honest as I possibly can about what I think about him being president of this country," Waters said on the podcast.

"I believe this president has colluded with the Russians, with the Kremlin, with the oligarchs of Russia to undermine our election system and thus, undermine our Democracy," Waters said.

"I'm gonna keep working until he is impeached."
