Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), who has repeatedly called for President Trump’s impeachment, said Thursday she can “guarantee” that Trump is colluding with the Russians to undermine American democracy, The Washington Examiner reported.
“Here you have a president who I can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the Russians to undermine our democracy. Here you have a president that has obstructed justice. And here you have a president that lies every day,” Waters said at a Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting on civil rights in Washington, D.C.
“How many of you in your organizations have said ‘Impeach 45? … Well, they don’t have what it takes, they don’t have the laws yet. Impeachment is about whatever the Congress says it is,” she said. “There is no law that can dictate impeachment. What the Constitution says is ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ and we define that. Bill Clinton got impeached because he lied.”
The Hill added:
Multiple Democrats have called for Trump’s impeachment, but the party’s leadership in Congress has urged caution, saying the investigations into last year’s Russian election meddling don’t yet warrant it.
Waters has become famous on the internet for her harsh words against Trump.
In August, she called him “the most deplorable person I have ever met” and that there was “something terribly wrong with him.”
In her eulogy for comedian Dick Gregory at his funeral this past Saturday, Waters said, “I’m gonna say ‘Impeach 45 everyday, Impeach 45 everyday, Impeach 45 everyday.'”
