President Donald Trump Fires FBI Director James Comey [VIDEO]

by Nina Bookout on May 9, 2017

Speculation has been running rampant ever since FBI Director James Comey released a certain letter last fall that, depending upon who you ask, may or may not have killed Hillary’s Presidential hopes. The other day Comey offered an impassioned defense of his actions – much to the dismay of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

This morning the media and Twitter were all a flutter over the fact that Comey misstated the number of emails that Hillary et al sent to Weiner’s laptop for printing. Lost in the celebration was the fact that a number of emails -did end up on the dude’s laptop when they shouldn’t have!

Well, it seems that President Trump has had enough.

The actual firing letter is short and very much to the point.

In it, the President states the following:

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” Mr. Trump said in a letter dated Tuesday to Mr. Comey.

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the F.B.I. that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” Mr. Trump wrote.

Attorney General Sessions had sent a letter to President Trump earlier today:

And of course, pundits and the media are gonna offer up their hot take on the situation.

Huh?? That makes zero sense.

Oh good grief! Need a blankie?

Maybe this will help…

While the media, liberals, and Democrats (I know, they are all mostly one and the same) try and figure out how to classify this as either obstruction of justice or more collusion with Russia, the fact is this. The left complained about Comey, but now that he is fired, they are complaining even more. Get. A. Grip people!

In all honesty, this could be a good thing. Anything that Comey attempted to do and be viewed as impartial, given the investigations last year and specifically last fall, was going to fail miserably and cause issues within the FBI and the Administration. This seems like a move to fix a problem before it gets even worse.

Now the question is: Who will be nominated as the next FBI Director?

He should have been canned months ago when he appointed himself acting AG and pronounced Hillary unprosecutable.
And again when, realizing Trump was maybe going to win, he sucked up by resuscitating the Hillary investigation.

As far as firing him when he’s leading the investigation into “Russiagate”, only a guilty party would worry about that.

Doing the right thing even though you know all your enemies will scream “cover-up” takes a certain type of guts.

If the crap hits the cooling device, I want Trump on my side.

Not having done any investigating into the reason for the firing of FBI director William Sessions by President Clinton in 1993 but I think it can be safe to say there probably was none of moral outrage by the democrats or the MSM like there is now.

About time.
The “Top Cop” doesn’t decide whether to prosecute or not. He should have laid out the facts, to ensure there wouldn’t be a cover up, and then handed the decision to AG Lynch. Then the scandal would have been the problem of Barry & company- and one they couldn’t duck. Comey protected Hillary from prosecution, probably figuring she’d be elected and would suitably reward him later.

I still have this feeling he was trying to “fit in” with the 0bama administration while making sure incriminating facts got out there. (Remember, he only did the announcement after DoJ told him they wouldn’t prosecute no matter what.)
