Maxine Waters: I Meant It When I Said Comey Has ‘No Credibility,’ But ‘I Believe Him’ on Trump

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) seemed like she was unable to make up her mind yesterday when she spoke to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes about James Comey.

During the 2016 election, Waters regularly criticized Comey and said he has “no credibility.” The former FBI director continues to make waves as a critic of Trump with his new book and media tour, so when Waters was on MSNBC on Monday night, Hayes brought up a clip of her from January of last year where she first proclaimed that Comey’s credibility is shot.

Even though Waters opposes President Trump with great force, it would seem – at least on first glance – that when it comes to Comey, their opinions are aligned.

“You and Donald Trump do agree on that,” Hayes noted. “That sentence you said – the FBI director has no credibility -you and Donald Trump are in agreement on that.”

Hayes pushed back on that, insisting that even though she “certainly meant” what she said, “it is quite different when you take a look at Comey and his relationship to the president.”

When Hayes tried to clarify whether Watters believes in Comey, she answered “I believe him, yes. So then was then, and now is now.”
