Rep. Maxine Waters is having a tough time keeping her stories straight.
When the California Democrat was interviewed by The Washington Post on Tuesday, she told the Post’s Jonathan Capehart that there was no evidence of collusion between Russian officials and the Donald Trump campaign to rig the 2016 presidential election.
Reporter to Maxine Waters: Any evidence there was collusion between Trump and Russia

“I’ve got to ask you, because you leveled a whole lot of accusations out there about collusions and hacking and all of that. Have you seen anything, either through the intelligence briefings, anything to back up any of the accusations that you’ve made?” Capehart asked.
“First of all, don’t forget that all of our intelligence agencies say, yes, they have the documentation that they did the hacking on the DNC and on some of us,” Waters said, without addressing the question.
“But the collusion, though?” Capehart asked again.
“No, we have not,” she admitted.
Folks on social media saw it as pure Waters — lots of talk but nothing to back it up.

Capehart let that one stand. After such a startling admission, he probably believed there was no need for followup questions.
Not surprisingly, however, he made no mention of her acknowledgement in his column that day about the interview. Instead, he wrote that the congresswoman “believes” collusion exists.
“I’m so offended by this president that I think it requires me to speak truth to power, to say it like it is and to be as honest as I possibly can about what I think about him being the president of this country,” Waters told me. She believes Trump “colluded with the Russians, with the Kremlin … to undermine our election system and thus undermine our democracy.”
