Trump fires head of FBI
President Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey, the White House announced Tuesday afternoon.Democrats have been more critical of Comey than Trump has so it will be interesting to see their reaction to the firing. I suspect they will be suspicious and suggest that Trump iw engaged in some cover up of their bogus claims of collusion with the Russians.
Trump fired Comey based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters.
“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 lead the bureau,” Trump wrote in a letter to Comey dated Tuesday.
“It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” the president wrote.
