Rep. Maxine WatersMaxine Moore WatersNoisy democracy, or rude people behaving like children? Kavanaugh fight a GOP wake up call, but more is needed Kanye: Trump has to be 'the freshest, the flyest' MORE (D-Calif.) on Wednesday offered a message of encouragement to special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE, telling him to "stay strong and stand tall" while conducting the probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. 

"A message to Mueller: Stay strong and stand tall. Continue to investigate them all. You are indeed answering the people's call. The Kremlin Klan is going to fall," Waters tweeted. 

"Around you the Democrats are building a wall. We look forward to the day, to prison they will all be hauled." 



Waters's comments come as Mueller's probe faces increased criticism from Republicans skeptical of the investigation. 

House Republicans last month seized upon leaked text messages critical of President TrumpDonald John TrumpFive takeaways from Cruz, O'Rourke's debate showdown Arpaio files libel suit against New York Times IMF's Christine Lagarde delays trip to Middle East MORE sent between FBI employees Peter Stzrok and Lisa Page. Critics argued the texts were evidence of anti-Trump bias on the Mueller team. 

Strzok was reassigned from the Mueller probe after the messages were revealed. 

Waters's tweet also came the same day Manafort sued Mueller and the Department of Justice on the grounds that the probe "is overly broad and not permitted under Justice Department regulations." 

Trump said in an interview last month that he believed Mueller would treat him fairly.
