Donald Trump fires James Comey as FBI director

  • HE'S GONE: James Comey.

Donald Trump has fired James Comey as FBI director, the man whose  handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail matter likely gave Trump the critical edge he needed for victory.

Reason cited was his mishandling of the handling of the Clinton matter.  Trump has cake, eats it too. His firing letter also asserts he, Trump, is innocent.

No tears for Comey here. He  further bungled the e-mail matter with inaccurate statements about thematter again this week.

Restoring confidence in the bureau presumably will include something less than assiduous attention to further talk of Trump's involvement with Russians.  Democrats have already asked to hear more from Comey about that.

Comments are coming fast and furious. I liked this one.
