Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) yet again called for President Trump to be impeached during an interview on MSNBC, Thursday night.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes started the interview by asking Waters if she agreed with President Trump’s statement that former FBI Director James Comey was a showboat and a grandstander.

“As you know, I did say that he had no credibility, and I still say coming out of that classified briefing, that I had come to the conclusion he didn’t have credibility,” Waters told Hayes.

Waters went on to tell Hayes that the comparison between what Democrats previously said and what they are saying now regarding Comey isn’t hypocritical because President Trump fired Comey, while the former FBI Director was investigating the Trump campaign.

Hayes followed up by asking Waters what she would being doing right now if she was Speaker of House.

“Well absolutely, I think [Trump] can be looked at and perhaps even charged with obstruction of justice,” Waters told Hayes.

Hayes asked Waters if she meant impeachment proceedings.

“You know, I’ve said all along that he would lead us to impeachment, and he’s doing just that. Everyday, more and more is unfolding,” Waters told Hayes.

Waters went on to say, “The information is there. We’re fiddling while Rome is burning. This president needs to be impeached. I believe that. I believe there was collusion. We need to get on with the business of doing real investigations.”

“Whether it’s the FBI, the House Intelligence, or the Senate Intelligence, everybody, just go at it. Go at it before all of the records are shredded…,” Waters said about the ongoing investigation.

Hayes then asked Waters if she was really worried about the possibility of records getting destroyed, and whether she trusted that the investigation was being conducted properly.

“No, I’m not sure that that is the case. Look, I worry. As long as this president has the power to appoint, I worry about those who get appointed and whether or not they’re going to be afraid that they’re going to get fired if, in fact, they don’t go along with them, if they don’t look as if they’re trying to protect him. I worry about that, and I think that he has shown us consistently if you come too close to this Russia investigation, he’s going to get rid of you.”
