Maxine Waters spent the last several months banging the drums for Donald Trump’s impeachment.
But now with Robert Mueller’s report set to be made public, Waters is singing a different tune.
And Maxine Waters just admitted to a crushing defeat that no one saw coming.
Attorney General William Barr announced he would make a lightly redacted version of the Mueller report available to Congress and the public at noon on Thursday.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would join him for a 9:30AM press conference to discuss the top line findings and answer process questions.
This enraged liberals.
But none more so than Maxine Waters.
For weeks, Waters and other Democrats dotted the cable news landscape with the conspiracy theory that Attorney General Barr concealed evidence of impeachable offenses committed by the President because he released only a four page summary of Mueller’s findings.
When Barr announced he would release a report where special counsel Mueller would assist with the redactions, the left saw their entire impeachment fantasies dashed before their very eyes.
So the fake news media and elected Democrats began complaining that Barr’s efforts for transparency were actually further evidence of a cover-up.
Maxine Waters appeared on Chris Hayes’ “All In” show on MSNBC and sent the message to the fake news media that this would be the talking point of the day.
Waters ranted that Barr “is basically a lackey and a sycophant for the president of the United States of America, and that’s all he’s going to be. This report is going to be overly redacted, and I don’t know if we’re going to get anything new or important out of that. I just wish that the Mueller team would come forward, and I hope that Mueller will come before the committee and have a chance to tell his side of what he has done, and have the questions given to him by the members of the Judiciary Committee that will help us to get at the truth about this president. I mean, this president and his minions are absolutely ridiculous and they disrespect the members of Congress, and we know that they have been involved with each other, his lawyers and his aides, etc., talking with the White House about what’s in the report already, and they are going to push back. … And there is no answer to how we should be dealing with him except impeachment.”
The New York Times’ pro-Hillary Clinton communications operative Maggie Haberman wrote, “Sorry but this is not a press conference – it’s an opportunity for Barr to put a spin on the ball or defend himself. No one can ask real questions here.”
Donald Trump said many times that no matter how much they give the Democrats in terms of this report, they will never be satisfied.
And Waters showed just how true that is by moving the goal posts and inventing a new conspiracy theory at every crushing defeat.
