Rep. Waters: Trump 'Deplorable,' Mueller Will Find Collusion Evidence

A veteran California congresswoman called President Donald Trump "deplorable" and "a flawed man" during an interview Friday morning.

Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and relayed her thoughts on Trump and the Russia investigation. She has been an outspoken Trump opponent for months and believes his campaign colluded with Russia.

"I think he's the most deplorable person I've ever met in my life," Waters said. "And I think when you take a look at his allies and some in his Cabinet, all of these people around him, with connections to the Ukraine or to Russia or to oil, everybody should have known that.

"We should have moved faster. Our intelligence committees have not moved fast enough. But I have my hopes for [special counsel Robert] Mueller as most people do. I think he's going to connect the dots. And I think we're nearing a Constitutional crisis."

Mueller is leading the Department of Justice's Russia probe. It was reported Thursday that he has impaneled a grand jury.

Waters was asked if John Kelly, Trump's newly installed chief of staff, will be able to reign in the president's messaging and clean up the Oval Office.

"We've been talking about this president becoming presidential or transitioning long enough. It's not going to happen," Waters said. "He is a flawed man with no real values and no real appreciation or understanding for government or public policy. I have no hopes that anybody's going to be able to contain him or that he's going to change."

Waters admitted that she wants to see what Mueller's investigation produces before talking about the possibility of an impeachment. But she thinks there's something there.

"You have to connect the dots. I think it's there," she said.
