Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif, insisted Wednesday that she is a “responsible” and “serious” person, one day after tweeting that President Trump should be “imprisoned” and placed in “solitary confinement.”
On Tuesday, Waters condemned Trump’s so-called “filthy talk” about the intelligence community whistleblower who raised the alarm about the president’s July 25 phone call with the president of Ukraine and suggested that impeachment isn’t “good enough.”
