MORNING BRIEF: Rep. Waters tells Trump to do America a favor and 'resign'

Congresswoman Maxine Waters, D-Calif., a frequent critic of President Trump, said the president would be doing the United States "a favor" by resigning.

"Trump confessed to Reuters that being President is more challenging than he anticipated. He should do himself & the country a favor & resign," Waters tweeted Monday evening.

Waters, 78, has repeatedly accused Trump of working in collusion with the Russians and not being the legitimate president because Russian leader Vladimir Putin put his thumb on the electoral scales.

EX-TRUMP AIDE TALKING

The unverified dossier from former British intelligence officer, Christopher Steele, identified Page as the campaign's point of contact with Russia. Page denied these allegations in an interview with Fox News last month, and said he was eager to cooperate with Congress.
