The insanity and hypocrisy coming from the Democratic side of the aisle is taking on new dimensions when we listen to what Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Cali.) is saying about President Trump, Hillary Clinton, and James Comey.
Even after announcing in January that Comey had lost all credibility, Waters insisted that she opposed Trump firing Comey in the middle of an investigation. Why? Because of Trump’s alleged, but unsupported collusion with Russia, which resulted in a Hillary Clinton election loss.
The irony of it all is, Waters immediately followed up that statement by saying that if Hillary had won the election and then fired Comey, she would have been fine with that!
Via Real Clear Politics:
NBC’s Peter Alexander grills Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Cali.) for her displeasure at President Trump firing FBI Director James Comey after she had announced in January that he has lost all credibility after attending a classified briefing conducted by the now-former director.
In March, Waters issued a press release that read Comey “advanced Russia’s misinformation campaign.”
“I do not necessarily support the president’s decision,” Waters said. ” I think that if the president would have fired him when he first came in, he would not have to be in a position now where he is trying to make up a story about why. It does not meet the smell test.”
However, in the interview Wednesday on MSNBC, asked if she would be okay with a hypothetical President Hillary Clinton dismissing Comey from his position, Waters said yes.
“If she had won the White House, I believe that given what he did to her, and what he tried to do, she should have fired him. Yes,” the California Democrat said.
Watch the video interview below of Waters attempting to explain her position on Trump firing Comey:
The claim that Trump fired Comey to protect himself is a non-issue, because it doesn’t preclude Comey from testifying about the alleged collusion or anything else, for that matter!
Waters’ position speaks a lot more to her hatred of Donald Trump than it does to finding any sort of truth about whether Comey destroyed Hillary’s chances of winning the election. The level of hypocrisy coming out of Waters’ mouth is astonishing.
Newsflash Maxine: There is no evidence that Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat Hillary and there never will be! Get over it and move on!
