Donald Trump has FINALLY fired FBI Director James Comey at approx 5pm Tuesday May 9th 2017. US (est time)
This COULD be the start of Clintons downfall.
In statements and news stories appearing on Washington Post, New York Slimes and other bullshit media sources..
“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,” Mr. Trump wrote. (In his letter of dismissal to James Comey)
In the final days of the campaign, Mr. Trump said that it “took guts” for Mr. Comey to reopen the Clinton investigation. “What he did brought back his reputation,” Mr. Trump said. Those very actions are now at the heart of Mr. Comey’s firing.
Officials at the F.B.I. said they were not immediately aware of Mr. Comey’s dismissal, which Mr. Trump described as effective immediately. The president has the authority to fire the F.B.I. director for any reason.
Under the F.B.I.’s normal rules of succession, Mr. Comey’s deputy, Andrew G. McCabe, a career F.B.I. agent, becomes acting director. The White House said the search for a new director will begin immediately.
The firing puts Democrats in a difficult position. Many had hoped that Mrs. Clinton would fire Mr. Comey soon after taking office, and blamed him as costing her the election. But under Mr. Trump, the outspoken and independent-minded Mr. Comey was seen as an important check on the new administration.
