Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is now claiming that Russian hackers are targeting her for her outspoken criticism of the Trump administration, saying as much at an in-district town hall this week.

Waters told the gathering that the Russians interfered on President Trump’s behalf in the 2016 election in order to achieve the repeal of sanctions.

“They absolutely hacked our Democratic National Committee,” she said.

“RT, which is Russian television, absolutely interfered with a speech of mine on the floor of Congress and blacked me out for ten minutes,” Waters claimed to the group. “They don’t play. They mean business.”

At the time of the interference, C-SPAN released a statement saying “[w]e don’t believe that we were hacked. Instead, our initial investigation suggests that this was caused by an internal routing error.”
