Trump Fires FBI Director Comey

Miss Me Yet?

This is going to cause a firestorm, although after the events of last year I don’t see how any President could trust Comey.

President Trump has fired FBI Director James B. Comey, who had been criticized by Democrats and Republicans since the presidential election.

“The president has accepted the recommendation of the attorney general and the deputy attorney general regarding the dismissal of the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Press Secretary Sean Spicer told reporters in the briefing room Tuesday afternoon.

Comey was confirmed in 2013. He has been investigating Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and any potential collusion with the Trump campaign.

Hillary Clinton blamed his late disclosures of an investigation of her emails for her electoral loss

In a statement, the White House said that Trump had told Comey that he has been fired. No reason was provided. 

 

Go here to read the rest.  Trump should have fired Comey immediately after he took office.  Better late than never however.  Conspiracy theorists will now have a field day.

  1. A double-dealing, two-faced, smooth-as-silk liar as we have seen.

    Double-dealt DJT, Double-dealt Hitlery, Double-dealt the victims and survivors of Ben-Ghazi (his FBI/GPU investigated the “anti-Muslim video protest” and did the forensics on the devastated compound). He knew the truth about Libya and the 13 hours of abandonment by State and the C-in-C.

    The only one he never double-dealt? That’s easy, the man he really was working for, the man he has been still working for—Barry Frank Marshal Davis aka Obama.

  2. “Better late than never.” I bet the left-wing propaganda apparatus is working up a million lies (everything they report is a lie) to publish and broadcast.

  3. Barry Frank Marshal Davis aka Obama.

    At the time Obama was conceived, the Dunham family had been in Hawaii all of five months. Who is more a more plausible candidate for the sire of Barack Obama: someone enrolled in one of Ann Dunham’s classes at the University of Hawaii who is six years her senior, or the owner of a paper distributorship 37 years her senior who lives 15 miles away from the Dunham home and not on the route between their home and the University of Hawaii campus?

  4. I think Trump is getting things in order to finally “lock her up” and keep another campaign promise. He knew he couldn’t do it with Comey in there, he needed to get rid of him. Watch…Hillary Clinton is going to regret “coming out of the woods” and “joining the resistance”. She poked a stick at the Lion and now she’s in his sites. Clinton’s never learn.

  5. Trump has long backed off the whole “Lock her up” mantra. And wisely so. For him to pursue that would make him look like a Banana Republic dictator looking to exact revenge on a political opponent.

    Besides, if you understand Hillary’s lust for power, her having to spend the rest of her life know she’ll never be president is punishment enough.

  6. I actually enjoyed watching The Apprentice, the original one not so much the Celebrity Apprentice. I would marvel at the way Trump could get teammates to turn on each other and keep everyone in suspense as to who would get fired.

  7. We need an FBI director who: 1. Isn’t political, 2. Doesn’t pick and choose between what he’ll investigate, 3. Doesn’t play the games that 1 & 2 cause.

  8. Comey did the best he could with a really bad situation– recommend charging Clinton, to the Justice department that opened by dismissing voter intimidation case? Oh, yeah, that won’t get sunk, deliberately.
    Sadly, the Left threw such a fit about Comey “giving” Trump the win that when the counter-intel investigation didn’t magically prove Trump is Putin’s lackey, they’d just insist it proves that Comey was helping Trump.

  9. Granted, a sidelight to the main topic, but:

    Art Deco is offended that the Frank Marshal Davis siring of Barack Obama “Junior” came up.

    No, no, no, the well-known promiscuity of Stanley Dunham could not have possibly resulted in her pregnancy with her father’s trusted friend, Frank Davis, no, no: and we should dismiss the nude photos that Frank Davis had in his archive of Stanley (as he had of several young women at this time as an “artist”) as mere coincidence, why every English gentleman has them, probably Art Deco does too.) As we should dismiss the well-known and extended liason between Frank Davis and Stanley as merely a philosophical engagement in exploring communism.

    But least should we consider who Barry Jr actually looks like—his “father”, the squatly-built, round-headed, extremely dark-complected Kenyan, Obama, Sr—or the tall (Barry O. Is 6’1″), lithe, athletic-looking Frank Marshal Davis (6’2″). Barry O’s scalp and hairline March almost exactly Frank Davis’ as do his ears: he looks nothing like Barack Obama, Sr.

    Or we could just read “The Communist”, by Paul Kengor who ties a hundred more factually based details linking Frank Davis with his birth on, Barry, Jr.

    No, no, no.

  10. Obama’s mother had no reason to lie about his parentage. At any rate I am calling a halt to any further comments about Obama’s parentage. It has a whiff of the Birther nonsense about it, it is irrelevant to the topic of the post, and now that Obama is no longer President it seems generally irrelevant to me.

  11. Trump should have fired Comey immediately after he took office. Better late than never however.

    I’ve heard it argued today that Trump fired Comey at the first decent opportunity; i.e. after he got his Justice Department appointees confirmed and in place.

    In any event, Comey owes Trump for instantly rehabilitating his reputation with Congressional Democrats the way he did. Big time.

  12. how about being at least a “spiritual father” ?

    I think Schumer etal are sorry Comey is gone because they were counting on his sanctimony to turn up something on Trump or at least keep the people confused.

  13. My guess is that the Democrats are so reflexively anti-Trump that it hasn’t yet occurred to them that they’re now hysterically decrying what they were furiously demanding just a few weeks ago.

    But then, Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia.

  14. how about being at least a “spiritual father” ?

    What does that even mean? Frank Marshall Davis belonged to an atheist organization and, of all the black churches in Chicago he might have joined, he lands on Jeremiah Wright’s outfit (long on africanisant political babble, short on religion). How could either man be called ‘spiritual’?

    FMD was a paper salesman in Stanley Dunham’s circle of friends. They’re known to have been friends in 1971. Barack Obama was conceived in November 1960. They evidently met some time between the Dunhams’ arrival in June of 1960 and the time Stanley Dunham introduced his grandson to the fellow 11 years later. There’s nothing about either man’s occupation or residence which would suggest it a decent wager that they met right away.

    Obama’s conventionality is so thorough I cannot imagine why anyone’s interrogating the memory of an eccentric like Frank Marshall Davis. I can imagine subtle influences. One of my mentors was an aide to Vito Marcantonio in his younger years, but you’re not going to derive anything I say here from anything Marcantonio ever said.

  15. Yes, discussion must be narrowed since Obama is no longer president and has no further real control of former FBI chief Comey—indeed Obama and other Red Diaper Doper Babies like Cass Sunstein, Anita Dunn, David Axelrod, and Valerie Jarrett (Vernon Jarrett, also a hardcore communist journalist like Frank Marshall Davis, both good friends from their CPUSA days in Chicago—no connection, however, as to how the young Barack O. made it from Hawaii and Columbia to Chicago, of course) frequenting the new “Georgetown Kalorama White House”, certainly aren’t mirroring the Trump presidency, aren’t trying to run a parallel shadow presidency—So we can expect, probably right now, the entire opposition to Trump’s presidency will come to an immediate end.

    Conclusion: Comey was just a stand up guy (U Chicago Law, JD, 1985), just doing his job, his own man, who had no connections to the Chicago CPUSA mob, and the rest of the RDDB’s.
