My wife was found inadmisible 30 years ago in an immigrant visa petition, now she answered "no" in the ds-260 electronic application to the cuestion: have you ever been denied a visa.........
When showed at consular interview she aknowleged visa was previously denied and asked to summit a waiver, what cause we summit the waiver for, first denial or both?
Certain categories of inadmissibility are considered so serious that the U.S. government provides no waiver for them. For example, you will not be eligible for a waiver if the immigration authorities believe that you are a murderer, torturer, drug abuser or addict, spy or saboteur, or terrorist, or that you have participated in genocide or the persecution of others, have made false claims to U.S. citizenship, are unlawfully present in the U.S. after previous immigration violations, and so on. Only an Immigration attorney has the expertise to properly fill out immigration forms and put together the right package of documents and other evidence to support the immigration benefits you are trying to obtain. However, especially in these turbulent times, you really need to retain an immigration attorney. This is not a do-it-yourself project! You should focus on retaining experienced immigration counsel, especially now that immigration is much more restrictive since Trump is now President.

Your wife needs to schedule a consult with immigration counsel for a full review of her immigration and other history. We cannot determine from the fact provided the basis for inadmissibliy and whether a waiver is available to her.
Dealing with the consulates on these issues can be very challenging, and furthermore it isn't possible to fully assess your wife's situation given the limited information you have provided. Her immigration history and recent denial strongly suggest that you should think about hiring qualified legal counsel to work on this with you.
This response does not constitute legal advice, as not all of the facts are known to me. This response does not establish an attorney-client relationship. I recommend you meet with an attorney to discuss your situation.
It doesn't look good but I agree with the other attorneys, you need to consult with an attorney.
