Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) revealed on social media that Democrats are whispering about the possibility of impeaching President Donald Trump, but they will not support it publicly.
"Unfortunately, many Members of Congress whisper the President should be impeached but have not supported my call for impeachment," Waters tweeted on Thursday.

"Only a few of us dare to continue to urge both Dems and Repubs to impeach this dangerous president," she continued. "I will keep trying. The public needs to demand!"
Waters has been one of the few members of Congress to have demanded for impeachment of Trump since before he even arrived in office.
The campaign to impeach the president was hit with a devastating obstacle when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that she opposed those calling for it.
"I'm not for impeachment," she said to the Washington Post.
"Impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan, I don't think we should go down that path, because it divides the country," she explained. "And he's just not worth it."
That has not deterred Waters and others like her who continue to agitate for impeachment, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
"I happen to disagree with that take," Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Examiner. "Should the [special counsel Robert] Mueller report drop and we see something, I wouldn't count anything out."
