Donald Trump called California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who has called for his impeachment, "a very low IQ individual" in a speech over the weekend. In response, Waters said "bully" Trump has "got another thought coming."
"I am so depending on our special counsel, Robert Mueller, to connect the dots so that he can prove the collusion," Waters said about her effort to impeach the president.
The House Intelligence Committee Republicans, who just announced they can find no evidence of Trump/Russia collusion "can conclude whatever they want to," Waters said. "They weren't doing anything to begin with. It was not a credible investigation. So, we're not paying any attention to that at all."
"Who would believe Nunes was working in a credible way to find out what took place?" she asked. "As a matter of fact, he was simply a messenger boy for the president, running up in the middle of the night, trying to prove that Obama, for example, had wiretapped the president."
REP. MAXINE WATERS (D), CALIFORNIA: Well, you know, there is no response. Everybody knows who this bully is. This president has attacked more women, more individuals, name-calling. I mean, look at this -- not only has he talked about Senator Warren, called her Pocahontas, he called Hillary crooked. He is calling me low I.Q. He called Rubio little.
I mean, this is what we expect of him. I just wonder what took him so long. And so, since we know who he is, and the fact that he is, you know, calling people names constantly, and talking about the media in the way that he does and calling people SOBs, et cetera, et cetera, I’m not surprised at all.
All I know is this. If he thinks he can stop me from talking about "Impeach 45", he's got another thought coming. I am not intimidated by him. I’m going keep saying that we need to impeach him.
And I am so depending on our special counsel, Robert Mueller, to connect the dots so that he can prove the collusion. And, of course, we've seen obstruction of justice just playing out before our very eyes. So, this is a dishonorable human being. He is a con man.
He came to this job as a con man. I really call him, you know, "Don the Con Man". So, that's who he is. That's what we expect. And I’m not surprised at all.
HAYES: It's interesting to listen to your reaction to this, because it almost sounds like you and other folks who work in Washington don't even -- it doesn't even land anymore when he does this kind of thing because it has become so wrought.
Is that a fair characterization?
WATERS: That's absolutely fair. We expect to wake up every morning to him calling somebody else another name or telling another lie. He has no credibility. And so, no, we're not surprised about him, you know, calling names and talking about my I.Q. He might say or do anything. It's expected.
HAYES: You just mentioned Robert Mueller. I know you believe there probably was collusion. There were crimes committed. That's a contention you've made. You think obstruction has played out before our eyes.
Today, the House Republicans on the intelligence committee announced very abruptly without consulting Democrats, they're wrapping up their investigation. It's done and its over, and they found no collusion. Do you take that at face value?
WATERS: Well, first of all, they had no real investigation. And who would believe Nunes was working in a credible way to find out what took place? As a matter of fact, he was simply a messenger boy for the president, running up in the middle of the night, trying to prove that Obama, for example, had wiretapped the president.
And so, they can conclude whatever they want to. They weren't doing anything to begin with. It was not a credible investigation. And so, we're not paying any attention to that at all.
