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.

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.
