While speaking with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Monday, Rep. [score]Maxine Waters[/score], D-Calif., had a very difficult time explaining why she thinks President-elect Donald Trump may have committed an impeachable offense before taking office, suggesting that campaign attacks against Democrat Hillary Clinton — including calling her “crooked Hillary” — may be impeachable.
Moreover, she seemed to suggest the Russians may have had a hand in helping Trump with campaign strategy and messaging.
“If there’s some sort of — as you call it — collusion,” Matthews noted, “then what? Does that make Trump subject to impeachment? Just generally, tell me what you mean by the term.”
“If we discover that Donald Trump or his advocates played a role in helping to devise strategy, if they were the ones who came up with ‘Crooked Hillary,’ If they were the ones who came up with ‘She’s ill, something’s wrong with her energy,’ and the way he basically, you know, 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,” Waters said.
“So, you think you can commit an impeachable offense before you take office?” Matthews asked.
“Well, I think that at the point that investigations discover and confirm and can document any of that role in helping to strategize — they had a role in attempting to determine the outcome,” she responded, ignoring the actual question. “That in many ways they used the information they got when they hacked into emails etc. — if that was used against Hillary Clinton in some way, yes I think that’s impeachable.”
