Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters believes President Trump is still guilty of colluding with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.
“I believe, even though I don’t have the facts to prove it,” Waters said during an interview with CNN. “I believe that Putin wanted to lift the sanctions.”
The California Democrat said she will likely always hold this view.
“He’s always wanted to lift these sanctions that were placed on him because of his interfering with and incursion into Crimea and so I believed that they wanted to elect President Trump and Trump I believe agreed,” she added. “I will always believe this, that he agreed that if he got elected he would lift those sanctions.”
The Daily Wire reports Waters continued:
“This president will not condemn Putin for hacking into the Democratic National Committee, will not condemn him for hacking into our election system, these are facts, 17 of our intelligence agencies have said this,” Waters falsely claimed. “Are these Patriots or not? I mean what do they think about our democracy being undermined by the President of the United States of America?”
“If they want to say we just don’t like him, they don’t really care about what happens to this democracy, don’t have an appreciation for the Constitution and the fact that the Constitution gives us the responsibility to impeach when we see this president or any president who is not good for the country, who’s undermining our country, who’s putting us in danger, who’s aligning himself with a foreign country to interfere in our election,” Waters concluded. “Those are facts.”

I will always believe that Rep. Maxine Waters is incompetent and useless to her constituents. And I actually have proof… We all do.

Trump sent javelin missiles to Ukraine to fight against Russia. Obama sent blankets. Obama talked of more flexibility with Putin after his election, yet somehow @RepMaxineWaters thinks Trump is the issue. Sad.
