Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said in an interview with Elle magazine published Monday that she "is out to get" President Donald Trump and wants to ensure that he will be impeached.

While at Elle's 2017 Women in Washington event, Waters discussed her political engagement with millennials and her goal of Trump's impeachment.

Elle asked Waters about her March 21 tweet, when she wrote, "Get ready for impeachment."

Waters said she has used the word impeachment "to the dislike" of her Democratic colleagues, as they believe the declaration is premature. But Waters claimed impeachment is her goal.

"But that's my goal. My goal is impeachment," Waters said.

Waters said she was so outspoken about her dislike for Trump because she "could not live with the way he treated other people."

"I'm out to get him," she said. "And when he talked about grabbing women? Okay? I'm out to get him. I'm gonna see him out of office. And I think it's going to happen. Get ready for impeachment."

This is not the first time the congresswoman has been outspoken about impeaching Trump. Waters has frequently used her social media accounts to bash Trump, declaring that he and what she calls his "Kremlin clan" colluded with Russia.
