Maxine Waters Claims That Vladimir Putin Came Up With The Slogan ‘Lock Her Up’


During an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters talked about her many calls to impeach President Donald Trump and insisted that when Trump called the Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “crooked” and rallied the crowds to yell “lock her up,” it came from “a play from Putin’s playbook.”

When Waters was asked why Trump should be impeached, she said, “I am talking about strategies that were developed working with the Trump campaign. I really do believe that much of what you saw coming out of Trump’s mouth was a play from Putin’s playbook. I think that when you saw him absolutely calling Hillary crooked, the, “lock her up, lock her up” all of that was developed. I think that was developed strategically with people from the Kremlin, with Putin, and I think it’s more than bank records.”
