Oh ye of little faith. Trump has really started to drain the swamp now.
I hope you understand the fierce criticism that Trump will face over this move.
I expect that the MSM and the (((Deep State))) will be pushing the “Trump is crazy and must be impeached now to save the country” meme.
The problem is that Hillary has stupidly opened the door for the Donald to make his move since she criticized Comey herself last week.
The White House announced Tuesday afternoon that FBI Director James Comey was fired.
“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement. “President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
The search for a new director will begin immediately, Spicer added.
“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,” Trump said in the statement.
This is a developing post and will be updated.
The obvious question is what if Comey refuses to be fired and what if all his deputies quit in protest.
This could be a very wild ride we’re looking at. Or not.
