Maxine Waters Says Trump Is Part of 'Kremlin Clan' So He Should Be Impeached

February 16, 2017

Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) charged President Donald Trump with being part of a "Kremlin Clan" on MSNBC's "All In With Chris Hayes" Wednesday night, and said he should be impeached because of it.

"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 told Chris Hayes.

She named former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn as members of the "Kremlin Clan."

"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?" she 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," Water 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."
