Rep. Maxine Waters on Sunday said the possibility that some of President Donald Trump's aides had ties with Russia during the presidential campaign is a "serious issue," and also called the president a "pathological liar" who needs to be removed from office.
"I've always said that I believe there was collusion," Waters told Joy Reid on MSNBC. "If we determine the facts, if the dots are connected that there has been collusion then I really do think that this president could be impeached."
The FBI and Congress are looking into allegations Russia meddled in the elections and also had contact with some of Trump's campaign team ahead of Election Day.
Waters has long called for Trump's impeachment and when asked Saturday by Reid about Trump's tweet calling the Democratic Party leaderless and "only interested in themselves," Waters said "his tweets are just horrible.
"I was looking at some of them where he talked about Democrats were going to close down the parks, and families were not going to be able to take their vacation. He is outrageous, a pathological liar. It is absolutely unbelievable that he could be the leader of the greatest nation in the world. We cannot allow him to stay in that position."
