Trump Fires James Comey As FBI Director In Wake Of Clinton E-Mail Mistake
After effusively praising FBI director James Comey for bringing down the hammer on Hillary Clinton during the election, orange Fanta POTUS has decided that he no longer needs him.
Like so many Apprentice contestants, and several folks on the executive staff, Trump fired James Comey today with this statement read by Sean Spicer:
Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office. President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” said President Trump.
A search for a new permanent FBI Director will begin immediately.
Comey came under fire yesterday when the FBI released a statement rebutting the idea that Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, had forwarded “hundreds of thousands of emails” to her then-freak-a-leek husband, Anthony Weiner. According to ThinkProgress, the Bureau’s statement clarified that only “a small number” of emails were accidentally forwarded to Weiner.
Then comes the fact that despite Trump’s best effort to purport innocence, Comey confirmed that the FBI was indeed investigating Trump for his alleged collusion with Vladimir Putin and the Russians to interfere with our election.
Sounds like anyone who thinks Trump might be a shady, dirtbag, scumbucket, is going to get the Ned Stark treatment (spoiler alert) OFF WITH HIS (or HER) HEAD!
Who’s President mans is this?!?
