Maxine Waters now sees a Russian behind every mailbox and lamp post.
During an anti-Trump tirade at an urban housing event, the California congresswoman went on a stem winder about Russia and the Kremlin’s alleged love for the American president.
At one point, the paranoid Waters declared Trump has committed “obstruction of justice,” and made the case for impeachment, also citing “possible collusion” with Russia.
She theorized Russia wanted to elect Trump so he would lift sanctions to allow Russia to drill for oil in the Arctic.
President Obama created the sanctions. She claimed Trump “hates” Obama.
“I want to tell you they absolutely hacked our Democratic National Committee—absolutely did that,” she told the audience to cheers.
“RT, which is Russian television, absolutely interfered with a speech of mine on the floor of Congress and blocked me out for 10 minutes,” she bellowed, as a woman in the audience gasped, “What?!?”
“They don’t play. They mean business,” Waters declared.
She was referring to an incident last January when C-SPAN briefly showed RT on its Internet feed. The TV broadcast wasn’t affected.
C-SPAN blamed the moment on an “internal routing error.”

“We don’t believe that we were hacked,” the network said in a statement.
