President Donald Trump knows what is best for the people, even when we sometimes don’t know what’s best for ourselves. He has recently fired FBI Director James Comey causing a wave of protests by liberals.
President Trump knew that would happen and said both Republicans and Democrats alike, “will be thanking me.” He will be naming a replacement who is going to do a “better job, bringing back the spirit and the prestige of the FBI.”
Some people have been saying that this is a move that shows he is guilty of ties with Russia, but Trump says that is a “hoax” and he denied any campaign involvement with Russia.
He has labeled the Senate minority leader, “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer.”
President Trump went on to say that firing Comey was a political move solely meant to restore “public trust and confidence” in the FBI.
This is not the first time a FBI director has been fired. The was firing was by Former President Bill Clinton, who dismissed William Sessions in 1993.
From AP News:
Trump will now appoint a successor at the FBI, which has been investigating since late July, and who will almost certainly have an impact on how the investigation moves forward and whether the public will accept its outcome.
It was only the second firing of an FBI director in history. President Bill Clinton dismissed William Sessions amid allegations of ethical lapses in 1993.
Democrats compared the ouster to Nixon’s decision to fire the independent special prosecutor overseeing the Watergate investigation in 1973, which prompted the resignations of the Justice Department’s top two officials.
“This is Nixonian,” Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., declared on Twitter. “Outrageous,” said Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, calling for Comey to immediately be summoned to testify to Congress about the status of the Trump-Russia investigation. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said the White House was “brazenly interfering” in the probe. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona said Congress must form a special committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the election. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said only: “Once the Senate receives a nomination, we look forward to a full, fair and timely confirmation process to fill the director position. This is a critical role that is especially important as America faces serious threats at home and abroad.”
