The Maxine Waters Witch Hunt.

You know you are losing when Maxine Waters is the face of your movement, via Clarice Feldman, American Thinker [1]:

[Maxine Waters] said that he had ‘no credibility.’ I assume you support the president’s decision, then, to fire his FBI director.” Of course, the operative word in Alexander’s statement is “support.” And supporting Trump is a bridge too far for Maxine Waters. She responded, “No, I do not — necessarily — support the president’s decision.” She went on to say, “If the president had not gone all over — If the president had not gone all over the country praising him about the way he handled Hillary and the e-mails, if the president had not said he had confidence in him, if the president had not said he was a part of his team…”

Just as Waters was building up a good head of steam, Alexander interrupted to ask, “I understand in the past he was praising him. But if you said that FBI Director James Comey had no credibility, wouldn’t you support the fact that the president, then-candidate Trump, now president Trump, made the decision to get rid of him?” Her answer? “No. Not necessarily.”

[Snip] Before it was over, Alexander did get Waters to admit that there was one possible set of circumstances where firing Comey would be all right. He asked, “So if Hillary Clinton had won the White House, would you have recommended that she fire FBI Director James Comey?” Waters did not hesitate for a moment to answer. The answer she gave was free of disclaimers such as “not necessarily.” She said, “Well, let me tell you something. 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.”

Waters has no problem with a president firing James Comey for pure spit, if the president is Hillary Clinton.   However she stark raving mad because President Donald Trump fired the incompetent Comey

As for the independent counsel to investigate the Trump campaign alleged collusion with the Russian, where is the crime:

Given that there is no evidence of any federal crime, I suggest the appointment of an independent counsel is in of itself unconstitutional.  Or what were the target but a liberal, what the media would call a witch hunt.
