Ultimately, James Comey deserved to be fired because of his involvement in the election season. The letter he produced two weeks before the election make reason enough to fire him.
However, this statement courtesy of NPR makes no mention of that.
“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office. President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement.
“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” the president said in the statement.”
Instead, Donald Trump is clearly trying to stop the investigation into his treasonous activities in its tracks. The educated portion of this country knows full what is going on. One day after the bombshell Sally Yates hearing in which it came out that
Yates brought one of her top staffers with her on the afternoon of January 26 to meet with McGahn and one of his top aides inside a secure facility on the White House grounds so they could discuss the FBI’s interview of Flynn. It was then, she testified before senators Monday, that she warned McGahn that President Donald Trump’s national security adviser could easily become a blackmail target for Russians, based on the answers Flynn gave to the FBI.
“That created a compromised situation, a situation where the national security adviser essentially could be blackmailed by the Russians. Finally, we told them that we were giving them all of this information so that they could take action, the action that they deemed appropriate,” she said. McGahn called Yates and asked her to return the next morning, January 27, when she testified that he asked her about four main concerns:
- Why did it matter to the Justice Department if Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence?
- What criminal statutes did Flynn potentially violate?
- Would taking action against Flynn immediately interfere with the FBI’s investigation?
- Could he see the underlying evidence collected in Flynn’s interview?
Trump fired Director Comey to stall his investigation. There’s no other way to see this. This is what fascists do. This is what Putin would do. We need to stop this man and impeach him before he ruins us even more. There is widespread corruption in the Republican Party.
