Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) tried to defend her desire to impeach President Donald Trump on Tuesday, despite the fact that she has no evidence warranting impeachment.
Waters was asked about her impeachment desire as well as comments from the White House rebuking Waters' comments.

"This is the most outrageous and ridiculous president that this country has ever had," Waters said. "He cannot be depended on for anything that he says."
Waters went on to say that it was not true that House Democratic leadership had reigned Waters in and that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had only said that she wasn't ready yet to impeach Trump.
"I'm ready to talk about it," Waters said regarding impeachment. "Because I do believe that he has shown us enough and defined himself in ways that we have to be suspicious and concerned about him and we've got to dig deeper."
"I'm wondering was there any collusion between him and (Russian President Vladimir) Putin and the Kremlin as they hacked into the DNC, into the DCCC, into members of congress," Waters continued.
While Waters said that she was wondering if there was collusion, she offered no evidence of it.
