With the Democrats screaming that the firing of FBI Director, James Comey is either a cover-up or unconstitutional, support into President Trump’s right to fire Directors of Government agencies has come from an unlikely sector: James Comey.
Comey says in a letter to his staff: “I have long believed that a President can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or no reason at all. I’m not going to spend time on the decision or the way it was executed. I hope you won’t either,”
So maybe we can put the claims to bed and get on with finding a replacement who will restore confidence in the FBI. The Left’s reaction is as typically blinded as it is idiotic. For the last half a year, the Democrats have been after Comey, but they wanted to be the ones who brought him down. Now thatTrump has done it, they wail and complain…Hypocrites.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
While Comey seems fairly relaxed about being fired yesterday, many Democrats and political pundits have expressed dismay, with CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin comparing Trump to Nixon. David Frum, editor at The Atlantic, called the move “a coup against the FBI.”
And Keith Olbermann from GQ called Trump a “MOTHERF***ING TRAITOR.”
Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer indicated disappointment and referred to the firing as a big mistake, although last November Schumer said he had lost confidence in Comey.
