According to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), President Trump and his administration are trying to lift all sanctions against Russia, increase Exxon’s profits, and help bring back the Soviet Union. And for these reasons, she said, “This is a bunch of scumbags.”
“This Kremlin clan is all about getting the oil and gas money, and doing the drilling, and they need this president,” Waters told Chris Hayes in an uninterrupted rant. “They need this president to get these sanctions lifted.”
REP. MAXINE WATERS (D-CA): Can’t people see what’s going on? Why do you think they hacked into our election? They hacked into the election because they have to make sure that Donald Trump got elected. So that he could help them with what I think is a huge deal. Not only to lift these sanctions, but to take over all of these Soviet countries and pull them back into the Soviet Union so that they can have access to all of these resources. It’s clear to me. And I just think the American people had better understand what’s going on. This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are —
CHRIS HAYES: Those are very strong words, Congresswoman.
WATERS: — They’re all organized by making money.
HAYES: Who do you mean that when you call them scumbags? Who are you talking about?
WATERS: All of these people that are organized with these oil and gas interests that’s in the administration and friends of the president of the United States. This back channeling that you see. These are a bunch of scumbags, that’s what they are.
HAYES: You mean the Secretary of State of the United States?
WATERS: Well, I tell you this, Tillerson is there to get these sanctions lifted. I believe it, just watch him. He’s going to continue to work on it. This is important for him. He was there because he negotiated the deal for Exxon with Putin.
