Donald Trump fires FBI Director James Comey

May 9, 2017

  In a stunning revelation today Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, here is more:

President Donald Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s election meddling.

In a letter to Comey, Trump said the firing was necessary to restore “public trust and confidence” in the FBI. Comey has come under intense scrutiny in recent months for his role in an investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s email practices, including a pair of letters he sent to Congress on the matter in the closing days of last year’s election.

  I believe James Comey had to be let go because of his decision that charges should not be brought against Huma Abedin, and Hillary Clinton for that matter, for mishandling sensitive information with the excuse they did not intend to violate the law. You try using that defense and see how far it gets you, I was always taught ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    However the reason why I find this news to be stunning is because of the timing, he should have let him go as one of his first acts as President; there will now be claims that Donald Trump fired James Comey because of the Russian hacking investigation in an attempt to protect himself, and you can see in the first paragraph in the block quote above that the AP alluded to this in the way the news outlet mentioned the investigation in the first sentence. This is why I thought we were stuck with James Comey.

  I think it is going to be very interesting to see how the left responds to this news: will they defend James Comey and call this a politically motivated firing after months of blaming him for Hillary Clinton’s defeat? The former Secretary of State also blamed him again last week so there is no love lost between the left and the now former FBI Director. But of course politics makes strange bedfellows, so they say, and I would not be surprised if they all of a sudden decide to let bygones be bygones.

    Finally! There a bunch of left that have to go too. They’re aren’t American’s, so they might as well be shipped elsewhere. Their goals are opposite to the health and well being of this Nation. Comey is just one among the many who need ‘ousting’!

      This should just be the beginning but there is going to be quite a bit of blow back from this one!

        Yes, that’s what blowhards do! If only they could convert it into energy replacing oil, solar, wind and coal, etc. they’d solve ‘climate change’ – little ‘gods’ should be able to do that! 🤔

        There is enough hot air coming out of Washington today, if only we could channel that into energy. 🙂

    It is the AG who essentially recommended Conedy’s removal.
    Remember it was Bill Clinton who fired the only other FBI director to e fired.

      I heard Sessions had something to do with this and the left is not happy about it after he promised to recuse himself. Oh well!

        It was the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, who wrote the memo to AG Session. Rosenstein is heading the Russia Trump investigation.

        Rosenstein had better watch his back now, the target will be on him.
