Maxine Waters Contradicts Herself On-Air About Comey Firing

California Congresswoman Maxine Waters seems conflicted over how she feels about the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

During an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday, Waters says she does not support President Trump’s decision to fire Comey despite her previously having said that Comey has “no credibility.” She does, however, say that she would have supported the firing had Hillary Clinton done it.

Host Peter Alexander pushed Waters on her conflicting statements. “To be clear, you believe it would have been better to keep in place an FBI director who you said had no credibility to oversee this investigation than to find someone who you think would be a better choice?” he asked.
