President-elect Donald Trump has yet to take office and desperate Democrats are busy trying to impeach him.
Rep. Maxine Waters said Trump may have already committed an impeachable offense if Democrats can be proved his campaign colluded with Russia in devising strategy to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Waters was asked to explain what she meant when she used the term “collusion.”
The California lawmaker said if they discover that Trump or his advocates strategized with Russia, then impeachment is a legitimate question.
“If they are the ones who came up with ‘Crooked Hillary,'” Waters said, “if they are the ones who came up with ‘she’s ill,’ ‘something’s wrong with her energy,’ …and the way that he basically described her in the campaign, I think that is something that would put the question squarely on the table whether or not he should be impeached.”
“So you think you could have an impeachable offense before you take office,” host Chris Matthews asked.
Waters came back with a nonsensical word salad:
“Well I think at the point that investigations discover and can confirm and document any of that,” she replied, “that they had a role in helping to strategize, they had a role in attempting to determine the outcome that in many ways they used the information that they got from the DNC when they hacked into our e-mails, et cetera, if that was used against Hillary Clinton in some ways, yes, I think that’s impeachable.”
