Mad Max is at it again.
This time, longtime Trump hater Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters is arguing for Trump’s removal from office because she predicts that if (when) Trump is vindicated by the Senate, he will “bring Putin into the White House.”
Waters repeated this claim twice, firstly in a tweet calling Trump “Putin’s Puppet” and secondly, in an appearance on MSNBC.

The Hill has more on this:
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) slammed President Trump as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “puppet,” and warned that he would invite the strongman to the White House if the Senate doesn't remove him from office.
“Revelation by former WH officials proves what we've known all along: Trump is #PutinsPuppet," she tweeted. "Trump repeated Putin's talking point that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the ‘16 election. Mark my words. If the Senate doesn't remove him, Trump will invite Putin to the WH next yr."

Waters appeared to be referring to a recent article by The Washington Post reporting that Trump believed Putin’s argument that Ukraine, not Russia, meddled in the 2016 election.
Breitbart also said:
On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) predicted if President Donald Trump were not removed from office in his Senate impeachment trial, he would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the White House.
On her early calls for impeachment, Waters said, “When I came to those conclusions early and starting the discussion, I wanted to sound the alarm that we better pay attention. And finally, it came to that, and I really knew that it would because of his character that he would not stop. And if he’s exonerated by the Senate when they do the trial, he’s going to get even worse. And I tell you, and I will predict he’s going to bring Putin into the White House for a meeting.”
