( - House Financial Services Chair Maxine Waters (D.-N.Y.) put out a Tweet on Thursday arguing that it was “past time” to impeach President Donald Trump.

“When are the people of this country going to wake up to the fact that this president is a disgusting liar, documented to have lied over 8,000 times in 2 yrs?” Waters said in her Tweet.

“Add to that his recent, blatant lies on our nation’s intel chiefs’ testimony in the US Senate,” she said.

“Past time for impeachment!” her Tweet concluded.

Waters has long advocated Trump’s impeachment.

On May 1, 2017, the Washington Post ran a story headlined: “‘Auntie Maxine’ and the quest for impeachment.” It described Waters appearance at an event called “Busboys and Poets.”

The Post quoted Waters as saying: “Donald Trump is someone that found his way to the presidency of the United States of America—I still don’t know how. … But he’s someone that I’m committed to getting impeached!”

“He’s a liar! He’s a cheat! He’s a con man!” Waters said, according to the Post. “We’ve got stop his ass!”

The Post reported: “Her concern centers on the question of whether Trump and his campaign knowingly worked with the Russian government to influence the outcome of the election, in which the businessman defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.”
