Flynn, Trump's first national security adviser, pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Moscow and reportedly will testify that Trump directed him to make contact with Russians.


“Lock him up, lock him up, lock him up, lock him up,” Waters tweeted, mocking the chants that Flynn and Trump led on the campaign trail in reference to Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonWhy does Bernie Sanders want to quash Elon Musk's dreams?

Waters, who has repeatedly called for Trump's impeachment, also criticized him over former acting Attorney General Sally Yates’s testimony earlier this year that she warned the White House about Flynn.

Waters has been a harsh critic of Trump, particularly on the topic of Russia, saying earlier this year that she “can guarantee [Trump] is in collusion with the Russians.”
