CANNED! FBI Director James Comey Gets Fired
James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, arrives to testify before the Senate Intelligence Select Committee during an open hearing.

President Trump has fired yet another person, but this time it’s a ‘REALLY’ big deal. F.B.I. Director James B. Comey has been asked to step down for how he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Information was released today that Comey was ‘inaccurate’ over the number of emails discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

Trump’s letter to Comey can be seen below:

“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.”

Trump continued to write:

“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.”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also released a letter that informed readers that the director had been “terminated and removed from office.”

According to New York Times, Mr. Comey first gained criticism for discussing the case:

“Mr. Comey broke with longstanding tradition and policies by discussing the case and chastising the Democratic presidential nominee’s “careless” handling of classified information. Then, in the campaign’s final days, Mr. Comey announced that the F.B.I. was reopening the case, a move that earned him widespread criticism.”

Trump did release a personal statement after he fired the director:

“The F.B.I. 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.”

It’s obvious that this looks like more than a coincident, and Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon agrees. In a Tweet, Wyden states that Comey should appear before law to testify about the status of the investigation he had been working on:

“[Comey] should be immediately called to testify in an open hearing about the status of Russia/Trump investigation at the time he was fired.”
