IT IS ABOUT TIME COMEY WAS FIRED …
Upon the recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey. This has been a long time in coming and it is about time. In typical hypocritically fashion, Democrats are suddenly up in arms after they had previously called for Comey’s head. It was just a couple of weeks ago that Hillary Clinton blamed Comey for her losing the 2016 presidential election.
Before you think that the Hillary email and private server scandal was the only thing that Comey botched, think again, there was more, much more. Comey should have been fired a long time ago; however, Obama did not have the CO-JONES to do so. Democrats know damn well they had lost confidence in Comey, they just have to show outrage to their constituents because they could never agree with something Trump did.
FBI Director James Comey has been fired, according to the White House.
“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office,” the White House statement reads.
“President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” the statement continues.
Comey’s termination was read to him over the phone while he was traveling for the bureau in Los Angeles, two FBI sources told ABC News. He was there for a field office inspection and a recruitment event this evening that’s part of the FBI’s efforts to boost diversity. A separate FBI official told ABC News that Comey first learned of his firing by seeing news reports on TV. The official said Comey was “surprised, really surprised” and was “caught flat-footed.”
The letter from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein credits Comey with being “an articulate and persuasive public speaker about leadership” but goes on to note that he “cannot defend the Director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken.”
“Almost everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes; it is one the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives,” Rosenstein writes.
Rosenstein says in the letter that it was wrong of Comey to say that the investigation into Clinton’s private email server should be closed and that no charges should be issued.
The letter goes on to allege that Comey was wrong to later “hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation.”
