Conspiracy theories are nothing new to the left, but this one perpetuated by Maxine is wack.
As the Daily Wire reports:
Waters was highlighting a series of articles from the San Jose Mercury News that claimed to show a connection between the CIA and the drug trade, but the paper eventually backed away from the story after they were eviscerated by various other news outlets. That didn’t deter Waters from holding tight to the conspiracy theory.
“It doesn’t matter whether [the CIA] delivered the kilo of cocaine themselves or turned their back on it to let somebody else do it,” Waters said in 1997. “They’re guilty just the same.”
