The Democratic Representative told Joy Reid that she believes a credible president wouldn’t have this issue.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) doubled down on her call for leaks from inside the Trump administration to continue during an interview on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday.
During an interview on ABC’s “The View” on Friday, Waters said that she was not disturbed by the leaks that are coming out of the Trump administration that potentially are jeopardizing American national security, and that she wants the leaks to continue.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Waters if she agreed with people that say these leaks are jeopardizing national security.
“Not really,” Waters responded. “The first thing they need to do is start with the president. The president gave classified information to Russians in the White House, and our ally Israel was very upset with us.”
“If the people around you are leaking in the way that they are doing, they are trying to tell us something,” Waters continued. “I don’t think they would do that with a credible president. They are doing that to this president because he has defined himself as someone who cannot be trusted, someone who’s going to get this country in trouble.”
Waters concluded by saying once again that she welcomes the leaks and that it keeps us focused on Trump and “keeps us talking about what’s wrong with him.”
