posted by Hannity Staff - 1.16.19

Firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters slammed Wall Street and other sectors of the financial industry Wednesday; outlining her bold agenda as she takes control of the House Financial Services Committee.

Waters was speaking at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in the nation’s capital when she blamed “Large Wall Street banks” for the American financial collapse of 2008.

“The crisis was a result of Wall Street running amok,” said the California legislator. “Large Wall Street banks are not subject to anybody and do great damage to our economy.”

“The CEOs of the banks now are saying, ‘What can we do to stop Maxine Waters because if she gets in she’s going to give us a bad time?’” said Waters before her election last November. “I have not forgotten that you undermined our communities. I have not forgotten that you sold us those exotic products, had us sign on the dotted line for junk.”

BRACING FOR MAXINE: The Financial Sector ‘Braces’ for Rep. Waters Rise to Committee Chair

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.29.18

The financial and banking industries are rapidly preparing for Rep. Maxine Waters ascendance on the House Financial Committee; admitting they’re not entirely sure of her agenda or “what she will be thinking” when she becomes Chairwoman.

An outspoken critic of President Trump, Waters made national headlines weeks ago when she declared she would do to the banking community “what they did to us.”

“I don’t know what Chairwoman Waters will be thinking,” Richard Hunt, president of the banking industry trade group the Consumer Bankers Association, told Fox News. “We’re prepared to defend the good work that we’re doing but we’re also willing to work with Chairwoman Waters to make sure we get smart, well-balanced policy.”

“I just don’t know who is going to be in her crosshairs,” Hunt added. “Is it going to first be [Treasury Secretary Steve] Mnuchin and Trump or is it going to be the banks?”

BUSTED: Video Surfaces of Maxine Waters Warmly Embracing Louis Farrakhan

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.15.19

New footage emerged on social media this week showing firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters warmly embracing virulent anti-Semite and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan; raising even more questions over the relationship between Farrakhan and prominent Democrats.

“Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who now leads the House Financial Services Committee, hugs racist and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan,” posted a reporter from the Daily Wire. “Farrakhan has praised Hitler as being a ‘very great man,’ has called Judaism a ‘gutter religion,’ and compared Jews to ‘termites.’”

It is unclear when the footage was recorded.

The relationship between Farrakhan and leading liberal leaders made national headlines this week, when Women’s March organizer Tamika Mallory defended her previous comments that labeled the Nation of Islam leader the “greatest of all time.”
