Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has been one of Donald Trump’s most outspoken critics and on Thursday that didn’t change. The Congresswoman said she can “guarantee” that Trump is colluding with the Russians to undermine American democracy.
Waters, speaking at a Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting on Thursday said:
“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 went on to urge members of Congress to begin the impeachment process.
“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.”
Many Democrats have already called for Trump’s impeachment, but according to the party’s leadership in Congress, they don’t have enough evidence in the Russia investigation to warrant it.
