Maxine Waters: We’re Nearing a Constitutional Crisis

“[Trump’s] the most deplorable person I’ve ever met in my life,” Maxine Waters told Morning Joe on Friday.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told the panel on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that she thinks the United States is nearing a constitutional crisis, after reports Thursday that special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate President Trump’s ties to Russia.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Waters was the first person to call for Trump to be impeached, before asking Waters if we are at that point now given Mueller’s grand jury.

“I’ve long thought that there was a lot of smoke, even fire,” Waters said. “And that everything that I have learned about this president, starting with the campaign itself, that people should have understood that it was something terribly wrong with him.”

Waters continued: “I’ve said over and over again, I think he’s the most deplorable person I’ve ever met in my life.”

“Our intelligence committees have not moved fast enough,” Waters concluded. “But I have my hopes for Mueller as most people do. I think he’s going to connect the dots. And I think we’re nearing a constitutional crisis.”
