Video: Maxine Waters claims Trump’s use of term ‘witch hunt’ a ‘Russia tactic’

While appearing on Sunday’s edition of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Maxine Waters, the California Democrat obsessed with impeachment and conspiracy theories involving Russia, claimed that President Trump’s use of the term “witch hunt” is a tactic the president learned from Russia.  Moreover, she claimed Trump is trying to set up a “back panel” with Russia.

“We cannot allow him to destruct this investigation in the way that he’s doing. He lied about a spy being embedded in his campaign,” she said.  “There has been no spy embedded in his campaign. He’s lying about witch hunt. But you notice he says ‘witch hunt’ over and over again. He has learned some of the Russia tactics about how, you know, you deal with getting people to believe you. You say it over and over again. And he has discredited the media by saying it over and over again. There’s no witch hunt. There’s no spy. But he thinks that — this lesson that he’s learned and I think it is from the Russian tactics that he’s learned over the years that if he says it enough, he can get people to believe it.”

She also claimed that three countries have been indicted in the Russia probe.

From the American Mirror:

“The way that it has unfolded, there is so much information almost on a daily basis that the average American just can’t keep up with it,” Waters said.

“You know, people go to work, they go about their lives, they may turn on television on the so-called news hour in the evening or maybe catch a little bit in the morning, but they don’t know all of the details,” she claimed.

“And they don’t know how many countries have been indicted,” she continued, “three countries involved in this already. They don’t know how many people have been indicted. They don’t know — they may know about Manafort, or they may know about Flynn, but they don’t know about Papadopoulos, they don’t know about Gates, they don’t know about the others who are entangled in this mess,” Waters asserted.

“But they should know this: They should know that something is terribly wrong — that there’s all of these connections that have been uncovered with Russia.

“They should know about now the two meetings that, uh, Junior, Trump Jr. has had with Russians and they should know that there was an attempt to create a back panel, uh, uh, a back channel rather, uh, to, uh Putin and connect our president and Putin in some ways,” she said.

Facts? Apparently, Waters has no need of facts…

By the way, Waters still has not repudiated death threats against the president.
