Maxine Waters: Trump ‘Will Be Eligible for Impeachment’

Thursday on MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she believed there are “connections” between President Donald Trump and Russia which will cause him to be “eligible for impeachment.”

Waters said, “I’ve always said that I believe if we get the investigations that need to be done if we drill down, we’re going to see the connections. We’re going to understand the role that this administration has played during the campaign with Russia. and when we see that, he certainly will be eligible for impeachment. I do believe that.”

She continued, “I’m not satisfied yet. I’m worried about the Republicans who are still standing up for Trump, even in the face of growing information. So I still think the call for an independent commission is credible and that we should do that. Let’s see what happens. They’re going to do the investigations and I want the Democrats to be poised with all kinds of research and information to do the drilling down that I think is necessary to understand what Trump has done in connection with the Russians to undermine our democracy.”

She added, “I am saying the investigations must be done, the drilling down must be done. We must get to the facts of what it has been about. I don’t think you can do the impeachment just because I think or others think. But I think if we do the investigations, that we will find the connections and I do think that impeachment will be necessary.”
