Remember Loretta Lynch on that plane with Bill Clinton right before the decision was made on whether Hillary did anything wrong, and then Obama publicly saying that he was confident the FBI would find no wrong doing on Hillary's part. Comey's hands were already tied at that point. He could not go against his President. Now they just make sure he cannot do anything. Poliltical co-incidence?

well it is strange. Comey was stuck in a weird place and has been for quite awhile. if Obama had fired him last year, we would be asking the exact same questions.

i liked what Nicolle Wallace said "Figuring all of this out is like unraveling a spider web without breaking it"

Comey was a political tug-of-war rope. Damned if he did - damned if he didn't. Your opinion of him likely depended on how he responded to whomever was tightening the screws at any given time. He shoulda told 'em to take this job and shove it!

So Attorney General Sessions, someone who mislead or lied during confirmation hearing of ties to Russia and who has recused himself from Russian Inquiries suggested Comey be fired. Last week Comey testified about ongoing investigation of Russian hacking and possible Trumpco ties to Russia during election process. Timing is everything.

There is plenty from both Dems & GOP to be upset with by Comey & his actions. But the timing of Sessions & Trump firing Comey seems quite questionable.

If there was ever the need for a special prosecutor, now is the time to investigate Russia + Trump & Friends.

It was time. His last non-sensical press conference rehash just shined too much attention on politics and not the rule of law. He wasnt hired to interpret the constitution but to get to the truth and the facts.

Wrong.

The Democrats on the committee failed to ask the pertinent question.
AG nominee Sessions answered all questions and truthfully.

It is hardly AG Sessions problem if the Democrats are too stupid to ask the right question.
Or was it that they were afraid of asking the question in fear of the answer they would get and completely embarrass Obama and Clinton?

The left-wing mouthpieces are going nuts over President Trump’s decisive and justified action. FBI Director Comey made gross errors in judgement. Errors in judgement have consequences.

Text: Trump letter to Comey
Published May 09, 2017 - Fox News

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/05/09/text-trump-letter-to-comey.html

MAY 9, 2017

Dear Director Comey:

I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately.

While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.

It is essential that we find new leadership that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.

I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

DONALD J. TRUMP

i do find it strange that the assistant attorney generals letter cited the reasons for this from clinton and holder and others from last year about clintons emails and yet the white house is also calling for an end to the investigation into russian ties already.

What an incredibly odd thing for a President to add to such a letter.

Agree.

Further, when Comey did damage to Clinton on 2 occasions, Trump was Comey's biggest cheerleader. Comey testifies before Congress last week on Russia, and today he's let go. Heat on Trump getting a bit too hot for Donnie? Get rid of enemy, Comey?

The justification Trump uses HC as a cause is laughable.

Somebody call Putin & find out what's really going on.

Strange?

The FBI Director reports to the Assistant Attorney General. and Comey's handing of the Clinton email scandal is the primary reason to fire him.

The Assistant Attorney General ha been praised by the Democrats almost daily since his confirmation.

Last October the Democrats were calling for FBI Director Comey to resign, calling for his head calling him a political hack and those are just the nicer things they were saying.

Today the same Democrats are saying “how could Trump do this to our FBI Director!”.

If it wasn’t for the double standard Democrats would have no standards at all.

So, our Wussy in Chief not only fires the FBI director that is investigating him and his cronies but he does it in the most cowardly way sending his body guard with a note. What happened to big rough tough apprentice you're fired phony Trump???


Now watch him appoint one of his cronies like Gulianni as new FBI director, one who won't follow through with the Russia/Trump investigations. We now have a King instead of a POTUS. Hires half his family and fires anyone who doesn't agree with him lock step 100% even when he is wrong.

HAIL KING TRUMP!!!

If you have 13 minutes, Anderson Cooper asks Kellyanne Conway some VERY hard questions regarding Comey's firing. Personally I think Cooper won this debate.

Everyone from the President on down has been a hypocrite on Comey over the last year.

However, "hypocrite" is the natural conclusion being drawn as things are run through the hyperpartisan filter. When everyone is constantly looking for the gotcha, there you go.

There's another side to it, though. Judging every action on its own individual merit.

Without an independent judiciary, it's all over.

Wow, you really know how to completely miss the point. It's not that there's some new love affair across the aisle for Comey, he's managed to make enemies of pretty much everyone. People are bewildered at the fact that he was investigating Trump and his associates, and Trump had the audacity to fire him while citing the very investigations that likely helped him gain support as the cause. He won't be missed, but the situation under which he was fired is incredibly concerning. Hope that clears it up for you.
