On Wednesday California congresswomen Maxine Waters wildly claimed that President Trump is part of a “Kremlin Klan”
(VERO BEACH, FLA) Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) said Wednesday that she believes the 45th President of the United States maintains an inner circle of Kremlin loyalists, and for this he must be impeached.
"I've come to conclude that Trump has the ‘Kremlin Clan' surrounding him and have been involved with him for a long time and you named some of them this evening," Waters said on MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes”.
Waters named three associates of President Trump in her rant including former campaign head Paul Manafort, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
"So, whether we're talking about any of them or Wilbur Ross or Carter Page, these are all people with ties that are documented with Russian and the Kremlin, and so I have named them ‘Trump's Kremlin Clan' because how is it that all of them with this background and with these connections end up in the same administration?" Waters asked.
She told Hayes that there is "more to be learned" about this group of people.
She said that Trump deserves to be impeached because of his staff's "collusion" with Russia.
"I tell you, there's more to be learned about it," Waters said. "I believe there has been collusion. They were involved in his campaign and we've got to dig. These investigations have got to show the connection and prove that collusion, because, as for me, I think it leads to impeachment and I believe that and that's what I'm paying attention to."
Rep. Waters has previously made unfounded accusations. On February 7th, the Los Angeles county lawmaker erroneously claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin was invading Korea.
Ironically, she was also calling for the impeachment of President Trump when she made that statement.
