Maxine Waters has lost it

By TwoScoopsMcGee   May 10, 9:30pm   2 links   4,253 views   161 comments   watch (1)   quote      

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.

"So she should have fired him but had he shouldn't fire him. This is why I'm confused," Alexander said to Waters.

"You want us to find evidence of no evidence? If you claim there is evidence, its your job to show your links. So far, you posted one misinterpreted quote from Comey wherein he says he is investigating Russia."

Nope-I've never asked for that. I have shown the links and the quotes. I've shown links with some evidence. So, clearly evidence exists. You can call it untrustworthy if you like, but you can't claim that it doesn't exist.

Why wait 100+ days?

taking advice from your advisors is what a president does. Absolutely crazy to expect a president to walk in and fire the FBI director, w/o learning all the facts available to a president.

Also, Comey fucked up again and showed no signs of adjusting his behavior going forward.

Your timing narrative is a lie. Nothing there.

"Remember when Trump mentioned his judge may not be unbiased, and the MSM went crazy? Why do you think it's ok to question the system now? You dont get to create special processes when things look like they arent going your way. Regardless, a prosecution requires evidence. We currently have none."

Wow--you're losing it now. Trump claimed a judge was biased because of his family's race. People rightly were appalled.

I'm claiming that Republicans leading the investigation into a Republican President are inherently biased. Not even remotely the same thing.

And an investigation is what produces evidence that can be used much later if a prosecution is warranted. You need to learn the difference between investigation and prosecution.

All I've said is it's suspicious. That is most definitely not a lie. Let's investigate and you can prove me wrong.

I'd be happier if Trump had been open and honest about the reasons that he fired Comey. I'd be happier if those reasons had merit.
Instead, he and his 'team' hid in the bushes and told us a variety of stories on why he fired Comey. The reasons that he settled on were to contradictory to bother trying to summarize. You can read it here:
http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/11/politics/transcript-donald-trump-nbc-news/

There's one thing he's right about. Neither he nor his team can come up with a reasonable explanation verbally, so they should stick to written words, and have a lawyer compose the statements. At least that way, they will make sense. OTOH, if he had competent people explaining the truth in the press conferences, there wouldn't be any problem. Unfortunately, that is too much to ask from the Trump administration.

Its exactly the same thing. Does the authority figure have a bias towards his own team or not? In trump's case, that judge was proven to have connections to La Raza. Trump was proven accurate in his claim.

Your hypocrisy is noted...again.

The FBI is not republican. Its the unbiased, non political FBI. If a director shows bias, get rid of him. If not, you're questioning the new FBI director's integrity w zero evidence. This is every bit as appalling as what Trump did to that Mexican judge.

EXCEPT Trump had good reasons to accuse that Judge, given the judge was a member of La Raza.

You dont even know who the new director is yet, and you are claiming bias. This is nothing short of a total meltdown.

Unless Trump nominates David Duke or Alex Jones, you have no right to demand input over who the prosecutor should be. To question the integrity of this honorable official yet-to-be-named should make rational people "appalled". Either you agree w me, or you are a hypocrite. Which is it?

That's funny because it's you who are always making the declarations and me who is saying that things aren't black and white. You say there is no evidence. I say, actually there is some evidence but it may not be credible. We need to do more investigating.

You say they are NOT investigating Trump. I say--they are investigating Trump Administration and we don't really know for sure what they've found, so it's not right to say anything for certain.

All I'm saying is let's get to the bottom of this. What are you afraid of?

Lips: Here are democrats, in multiple quotes from multiple leaders, all expressing criticism of Comey, blaming him for costing Hillary the Election, some saying they've lost confidence in his leadership of the FBI, some calling for him to be fired, and others suggesting he should resign over the past few months.
Jojo: So What?
Lips: Here are some quotes from the most of the same people who were angry Comey got fired. Wasserman-Schultz, for example, said Comey was not longer able to "serve in a neutral or credible way". Now she's saying it's a "Dark Day for Justice" when he got fired. Waters said that Hillary should have fired him then saying Trump should not have fired him.

Yes, all the Dems thought Comey did a bad job on the Clinton investigation. So what? Dems are asking for a special counsel to investigate if Trump fired him because he was worried about the FBI investigation.

There is absolutely NOTHING hypocritical or inconsistent in the Dems position. For you to imply such is a bold faced lie.

The dossier and the other discredited anonymous sources are all garbage. This was the weak support used to surveil Trump. The blasting MSM narrative didnt start until Hillary lost. This makes sense, considering there is no actual evidence to surveil trump, it looks like team hillary working in cooperation w Obamas team tried to hack the election. There is far more evidence for this theory than for Trump/Russia hacking the election.

Hillary needed a cover, and they spun this nonsense Trump/Russia narrative which the MSM was all too happy to blast into your soft skull.

Again, there is far more evidence for this theory than for Trump/Russia collusion. Hopefully Trump's new FBI director re-opens Hillary's investigation, and starts one on the Obama administration for its role in surveilling political rivals.
