By The Blaze. One of the first House Democrats to openly call for President Donald Trump’s impeachment now says it’s not good enough and would rather see him locked up all by himself instead.
In a Tuesday afternoon tweet, Rep Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said that she had had enough of the president’s “filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed.” . . .
I'm calling on the GOP to stop Trump's filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed. Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative.

President Trump has been the subject of emboldened calls for his impeachment from Washington Democrats in the wake of the controversy over a whistleblower from the intelligence community’s report about a late July phone call between the U.S. president and the president of Ukraine.
In the wake of the controversy and impeachment push from House Democrats last week, President Trump remarked that those who fed the information to the whistleblower were “close to a spy” and “You know what we used to do in the old days, when we were smart, right? The spies and treason? We used to handle it a little differently than we do now.” (Read more from “Maxine Waters: Impeachment Not Good Enough, President Must Be Imprisoned” HERE)
Waters: If Pompeo Defies Subpoenas, I Hope ‘We Can Drag Him in or We Can Arrest Him’
By Breitbart. . .[Maxine] Waters said, “I do agree that this president has instructed those who we have been subpoenaing not to come before our committee, not to cooperate. It is outrageous in what he is doing. And now that we have more information, factual information, for example, that Pompeo was on that telephone call, he must respond to the subpoena. He must come forward, or he could be charged, I believe, with obstruction of the impeachment. And I don’t know everything that goes along with that, but I certainly hope that it means we can drag him in or we can arrest him.”
