Disgraced Democrat Maxine Waters held over $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, according to newly released documents.
Maxine Waters is spearheading the movement to have Trump impeached over his alleged ties to Russia – yet her own recent financial disclosures to the House of Representatives raise serious questions about her weird ties to Russia.
Got News reports: Waters’s cash-grabbing shamelessness has never known bounds. In 2012, she barely squeaked through a three-year House Ethics Committee investigation after abusing her position to funnel $12 million in bailout money to her husband’s bank.

Her Russian investments will surprise no one in her district, where impromptu signs declaring the congresswoman a “poverty pimp” and a race baiter have been popping up for years.
Waters’ 2015 disclosure statement details her family’s investments in BlackRock’s Russia-connected Global Allocation and Balanced funds.
2015 SEC filings for both funds advise of their involvement in Russian precious metals and securities:
A Fund may invest in the equity securities of companies that explore for, extract, process or deal in precious metals (e.g., gold, silver and platinum), and in asset-based securities indexed to the value of such metals. … The major producers of gold include the Republic of South Africa, Russia, Canada, the United States, Brazil and Australia. … A Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities issued by companies located in Russia.
In the midst of a March meltdown comparing the Trump administration, the Ku Klux Klan and Russia, Waters told her Twitter followers to, “Follow the money.”

Plus, Waters’ BlackRock Global fund held $3 million in Russian assets, at the same time her family profited!
On Thursday, GotNews exposed another Democrat conspiracy theorist, Virginia Senator Mark Warner, for his millions in Russian profits. Warner is obstructing a Trump anti-terror nominee until Warner gets personal financial documents from former Trump advisers.
Will the loony Democrats making up fantasies about Trump ever investigate their own Russian ties?
Especially as, this year, the investors handling Waters’ retirement are excited to dump more client money into the land of Vladimir Putin.
From Forbes, Jan. 27:
Sorry haters, Russia has survived sanctions. It survived $35 oil. And it survived two years of recession. Say what you will about Vladimir Putin, Russia’s economic management team has got its stuff together. And for that reason, BlackRock says Russia is a buy.
“What gets all of the attention regarding Russia is the geopolitics. But for all the negative opinion you can have out there on Russia, from an economic standpoint it’s been amazing. We are overweight Russian equities,” says Gerardo Rodriguez, a fund manager with BlackRock in New York.
Don’t hold your breath for the suck-up “journalists” on Capitol Hill to ask Waters if she has divested from Russia.
