Donald Trump shouldn’t fire FBI director James Comey, but Hillary Clinton should have, if she had been elected president, according to California congresswoman Maxine Waters.
The Democrat congresswoman gave contradictory answers about whether Comey should have been fired, depending on who is to have done the firing. Having earlier stated previously that she thought Comey had “no credibility,” MSNBC host Peter Alexander asked her why she opposed Trump dismissing him.
“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?” Alexander asked.
“No, but I believe the president thought that,” she answered Waters.
The Daily Caller reports:
“But you said he had no credibility!” Alexander responded somewhat incredulously. He later asked Waters if she would support the firing of Comey had Hillary Clinton won the presidency.
“If she had won the White House, I believe, given what he did to her…she should have fired him, yes.”
“So she should have fired him but he shouldn’t have fired him? That’s why I’m confused,” Alexander declared.
Waters appears to think that the FBI investigation, up until now headed by Comey, is likely to turn up evidence against Donald Trump.
