SCANDAL: Trump-Russia Conspiracy Theorist Maxine Waters’ Retirement Money Tied to Russian Investments

Lifetime leeching politician, Maxine Waters (D-CA) calls for President Trump to be impeached on a regular basis for his supposed ties to Russia.

It turns out that Maxine Waters has plenty of her own money invested in Russia.

According to Waters’ most recently available House financial disclosure documents, she held $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts. Tsk Tsk!

California Democrat Representative Maxine Waters held $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, even while she hypocritically calls for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment over his financial connections to Russia, according to her most recently available House financial disclosure documents.

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.

A Sept. 2015 BlackRock Balanced SEC filing reveals her fund’s nearly $2.8 million in obligations to the Russian Federation.

Plus, Waters’ BlackRock Global fund held $3 million in Russian assets, at the same time her family profited!

Especially as, this year, the investors handling Waters’ retirement account 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.
