Excerpt from the President's letter from the link:
I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately.
|Former FBI Director James Comey|
Yeeaaaaaaahhhhhhh - Comey was in a rather tough spot. But...but...I can't help but think somehow, even though it was President Trump who fired Comey, that in their usual nefarious way, his firing is a Nidus emanating directly back to Bill and Hillary. Because of Comey's statements a week or so before the election, that Shrew somehow orchestrated Comey's firing. They "had to take him down."
|Satan personified, Hillary and Bill Clinton|
The Clinton Crime family, in some way, always "takes down" someone who dissed them. Often, they end up suspiciously dead, like Vince Foster.
But other times, they simply get the person they feel dissed them removed from their job.
Comey did the right thing. Democrats would have set a new decibel level in shrillness if the reverse happened to one of their opponents and the F.B.I Director withheld that information.
Comey's firing is simply politics. The Guardian explains what led to Comey's downfall.
Also from The Guardian :
[.] months later, Trump heralded Comey as a hero in what proved to be a decisive moment in the presidential contest.
On 28 October, with only 11 days remaining until the election, Comey sent a terse and vague letter to members of Congress that new emails had been discovered related to the previously closed Clinton investigation.
A media frenzy ensued, as did false reports that an indictment was forthcoming. A visibly frustrated Clinton addressed the cameras that same evening, demanding that Comey provide more details so as to lift the cloud of suspicion he had once more cast upon her candidacy.
Days later, Comey cleared Clinton’s name once more. The emails, it turned out, were mostly personal or duplicates of what the FBI had previously examined.
James Comey defends Clinton email decision but warns of threat from RussiaYa know what...fcuk both Bill and Hillary Clinton. She Lost. Period.
But the damage had been done, according to several polls that marked a dramatic shift among undecided voters who swung toward Trump.
Clinton and her team, to this day, have acknowledged that several factors contributed to her loss. But they have pointedly addressed their anger at Comey, questioning in particular why he chose not to disclose that the federal government was simultaneously investigating potential ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia.
Hacking or not, we know for a fact that in pre-election polls people held a very low opinion of Hillary Clinton. We didn't need Russia or Comey or anything else defining who she is.
She performed poorly in the debates, did not bother to campaign and appear in states that she took for granted would vote for her (Wisconsin for one example), and she had this visible attitude of entitlement to simply move into the White House before the election.
Well, she lost. And she has no one to blame but herself.
Her defense that she "did not have any intention " when it came to the main server in her basement is garbage. She should be behind bars. Prison, not night clubs.
Since when did "not having the intention" be an excuse for exemption from prosecution?
The "intent" to drive under the influence is a crime...there is "intent".
The "intent" to rob a bank if I have detailed plans and am sitting outside the bank with a gun and a mask.
Comey is a decent person. I believe what he did was in keeping with what would fall under the duties of the Director of the F.B.I.
But somehow, the Clintons always seem to stick a fork in someone who they perceive did them harm.
