Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said on MSNBC Sunday that even if President Donald Trump is acquitted in a Senate impeachment trial, Democrats will keep investigating him.

But I know we must continue with the work that our constituents have elected us to come to Congress to do.”
Waters said that subpoenas she issued are progressing through the courts and the case will be heard by the Supreme Court in March. She also mentioned accusations of money laundering by Trump.
