WASHINGTON D.C. (KGTV) -- Democratic Representative Maxine Waters took to Twitter Tuesday, saying President Trump should be “imprisoned and placed in solitary confinement.”

Waters, who currently represents California’s 43rd Congressional District, made the statement during a series of tweets Tuesday.

“He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement. But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” Waters said in part.

Waters also called on the GOP and Trump to “stop the filthy talk” about the whistleblowers being spies.

The tweet comes after President Trump Monday said the White House is “trying to find out” the identity of the whistleblower who filed a report about Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president.

Waters’ tweet comes months after she pushed back against President Trump for claiming she was calling for people to “harm” his supporters.

Earlier in the year, the congresswoman encouraged people to push back on members of the Trump administration in public spaces, like restaurants, gas stations and department stores.
