Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) welcomes the appointment of a special counsel, but she says that alone might not get to the truth.
REP. MAXINE WATERS (D-CA): Let the [special counsel] go forward. Let the House Intelligence Committee continue to do whatever they're going to do. also, allow the Senate to continue to do whatever they're going to do.
I'm convinced that if we follow the tracks of those who have been involved with the Kremlin, those who have been involved with Ukraine, those who have been involved in the circle that I call the 'Kremlin Klan,' we'll get to the truth, and I believe that the truth does mean that we'll get to collusion, and collusion will lead to impeachment.
CHRIS HAYES, MSNBC: I should obviously that collusion has been denied by the White House, denied again tonight. Manafort and Flynn have denied anything of that sort.
But my question to you is you just used the word "impeachment." There aren't that many Democrats who are using that word. It's about, I think, about a dozen, a dozen and a half. What do you make of that?
WATERS: Well, here's what I make of it. I think to many people impeachment is a huge thing. It is an extraordinary thing. And I think there are many people and politicians in particular who are cautious or who tend to want to protect themselves from making mistakes. And so it has not been easy, despite the fact that they have seen enough that should make them at least curious enough to get to the bottom of this.
