“They have to drill down even further, and I trust they have come up with describing the role that the Russians have played, that Trump has played in this interference in our elections,” she stated. “They still are going to have to deal with more.”


“I want to know, for example, Manafort who was the campaign manager for Trump who also worked for Ukraine, I want to know what role he’s played in this,” the California Democrat continued. “The press and everybody else has to drill down on this. He left the campaign because it was discovered he had a contract, that he’d been involved with the Ukraine.”

Waters added she thinks “we have to drill down more and find out exactly what he or I think it is Flynn, what his role has been.”

“Flynn has been connected to this false and scandalous news that they put out about people, that they put out about Hillary Clinton,” she explained. “They’ve discovered he’s made telephone calls to the Russian ambassador.”

“It’s a lot to be investigated. We need to go further.”
