Flashback re Comey Firing: When Bill Clinton Fired FBI Director William S. Sessions (1993)

Scroll down the homepage or click on the links to the right to read earlier posts on FBI Director James Comey’s termination.


The (((establishment))) has its panties in a wad over President Donald Trump’s Tuesday afternoon firing of FBI Director James Comey.

In this post, we’ll go back in time to look over President Bill Clinton’s termination of his Republican FBI Director, William S. Sessions. We’ll also take a look at some of the reaction to Comey’s firing.

Reminder: Just a week ago, Comey was the demon from Hell to the Democrat party in the United States. With his firing, the jackass party has launched a major offensive against the Trump presidency, treating Comey as a martyr, done in by the evil Nazi in the White House.

One commenter at Zerohedge weighed in on the firing of Director Comey by suggesting that the fear of God be put into the usual suspects by making Joe Arpaio the new Director. Another noted that the Assistant Director Andrew McCabe is as crooked as Comey and should go too.

WASHINGTON, July 19— President Clinton today dismissed William S. Sessions, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who had stubbornly rejected an Administration ultimatum to resign six months after a harsh internal ethics report on his conduct.

Mr. Clinton said he would announce his nominee to replace Mr. Sessions on Tuesday. He was expected to pick Judge Louis J. Freeh of Federal District Court in Manhattan; officials said Judge Freeh had impressed Mr. Clinton favorably on Friday at their first meeting.

Mr. Clinton, explaining his reasons for removing Mr. Sessions, effective immediately, said, “We cannot have a leadership vacuum at an agency as important to the United States as the F.B.I. It is time that this difficult chapter in the agency’s history is brought to a close.” Defiant to the End

But in a parting news conference at F.B.I. headquarters after Mr. Clinton’s announcement, a defiant Mr. Sessions — his right arm in a sling as a result of a weekend fall — railed at what he called the unfairness of his removal, which comes nearly six years into his 10-year term.

“Because of the scurrilous attacks on me and my wife of 42 years, it has been decided by others that I can no longer be as forceful as I need to be in leading the F.B.I. and carrying out my responsibilities to the bureau and the nation,” he said. “It is because I believe in the principle of an independent F.B.I. that I have refused to voluntarily resign.”

Mr. Clinton said that after reviewing Mr. Sessions’s performance, Attorney General Janet Reno had advised him that Mr. Sessions should go. “After a thorough review by the Attorney General of Mr. Sessions’s leadership of the F.B.I., she has reported to me in no uncertain terms that he can no longer effectively lead the bureau.”

Despite the President’s severe tone, he seemed to regret having to force Mr. Sessions from his post. He said he had hoped that the issue could be settled at the Justice Department without the necessity of using his authority to dismiss the Director, who has a 10-year term but may be removed by the President at any time.

But Mr. Sessions’s intransigence had festered into an awkward situation for Mr. Clinton.

A Republican stranded in a Democratic Administration, Mr. Sessions was appointed to head the F.B.I. by President Ronald Reagan in 1987 amid the turmoil of the Iran-contra affair. Mr. Sessions arrived as a respected judge from San Antonio, but after five and a half years in office, he leaves with his star fallen, his agency adrift and his support at the F.B.I. all but drained away. Troubled Tenure

He served under four Attorneys General, and each complained privately about his absentee management style, his frequent traveling — often to unimportant events — and his inability to take command.

During Mr. Sessions’s tenure, the F.B.I. has struggled to redefine its mission, which has shifted focus dramatically with the collapse of the Soviet empire.

Comey brought disrepute to the FBI:

Trump punches back against his critics:

Comey’s motorcade to airport:

Comey boards private jet:

The great Judge Napolitano explains why FBI agents had turned against Comey:

The very Jewish fake conservative Krauthamer scolds Trump:

Jew Chuck Schumer calls for a special prosecutor. That’s in spite of Schumer’s earlier statement that he lacked confidence in Comey:

This story is still developing. The most important part of it involves who replaces Comey and how many RINOs (McCain, Graham, etc.) turn on Trump.

  1. Those Trump tweets are pure GOLD! HA! including your Trump “Rocky” photo at the top, perfect & so funny!

    And as Robert said above, you definitely covered all angles in this post.

    –Comey must have some big wig friends to come up with a private jet ride so quickly after being fired. Nothing like “going out in style.”

    –That nasal-voiced Schumer, what a jerk > creating suspicion where there is none. If anybody helped Trump get elected, it was Bibi, not Vladdy. 🙂

    –And good luck finding an “INDEPENDENT” special prosecutor. Nobody is truly “independent” since everyone has their own personal “sides” with whom they agree or disagree.

    –Napolitano & others: By barking about Comey publicly mentioning anything re HRC & the later Huma/Weiner emails “during the campaign,” is near to saying that the entire election was corrupted by same & should be done over. Aren’t we GLAD Comey dissed HRC publicly? It only help guarantee Trump’s win. And I hate to say it, but even HRC herself said so.

    –Krauthammer: I didn’t see any malice in the firing, just reality. Even so, what he said is true: “HRC says Comey cost her the election. Then Trump fires Comey for costing HRC the election. This makes no sense to me.”

    I didn’t watch the Cernovich interview yet since it is 1/2-hour.

  2. Did Masons threaten Comey to not tell the whole truth?

    I’ve mentioned that before, that this YouTube’r thinks John Mica R-FLA, & Elijah Cummings (the black guy) were giving Comey secret Masonic hand-signal threats when he testified last year. The YouTube’r talks too slow & drags it out, but if you start at 55-secs. & watch just a few minutes, it’s enough:

  3. Sloth Michael Moore tweet from your other article re the celebs going bonkers over Comey’s firing:

    COMEY FIRED! Dirty, corrupt things afoot. The truth will all come out. The unraveling continues… Hold the election over. Dirty. Corrupt.
    –Michael Moore (@MMFlint) May 9, 2017

    See! That is exactly what I was concerned about where I wrote further above:
    –“Napolitano & others: By barking about Comey publicly mentioning anything re HRC & the later Huma/Weiner emails ‘during the campaign,’ is near to saying that the entire election was corrupted by same & should be done over.”

    Now the leftards are demanding exactly that. Some crazy crazy going on. :-/
