This is the point in the movie when Trump tears off his mask exposing the face of Red Skull and everyone starts saying, "Hail Hydra".

Bet on it!

It doesn't make any logical sense to me that IF a person were under investigation, they would fire the person investigating them. That doesn't make it go away....it puts a million more eyes on it.

I have nothing other to say, give it a week and see what comes out.

I may actually watch CNN tonight to see hours of how Trump fired Comey because Comey had dirt on him.

I will keep my puke bag close by.

Shouldn't hillary be happy he is fired?

After all, he was why she didn't win.




No doubt! To suggest Comey is partisan is to admit senility.



Who said he was?

I say he was pressured by everyone above him.

Therefore making him not effective at his job.

Now they can go after lynch and rice.



I've read several comments on here so far suggesting Hillary would be upset by this. As if Comey didn't screw her over.


Well Comey does have financial and other links to the Clinton Foundation and if I remember right Comeys brother is also linked into the Clintons.


So how did he profit off of severely hurting her chances to win?


Another school of thought is that her being cleared so to speak was the intended result but backfired.



Hah! Yeah... right before the election. No way is that a decent plan. I don't believe he did it to hurt her but her certainly didn't do it to help her. I honestly despised him for doing that until I heard his testimony. The man seriously felt bad about it but it was the only choice he had, given the reality in front of him.

There's no way anybody would have thought that would have helped her, clearing or not.


You are thinking logically and I agree. Now what part of the campaign from the democrats made sense?
Screwing Bernie?
Out of touch celebs?
Foreign Policy?
the list goes on.


Touche... seriously.

I voted Green so I wasn't quite as surprised as a lot of the Hillary folk were but, daaaaaamn... I sincerely didn't think I'd be reading "President" Trump's whiny Tweets in 2017. I figured I'd be reading Hillary's tone-def, yet safely vanilla, press releases about how we were going to invest in new environmental tech and yadda yadda. I didn't expect much from her but I figured we'd at least stay static until 2020. What we have now is a weird, scary, ball of marmalade chaos firing, grabbing, and whining his way through the rest of this decade.

Strange times.

If that were the case, we wouldn't already know as much about it as we do.


And what, exactly, do we actually know about the FBI's ongoing investigation?
Please enlighten us.


All the various supposed connections: Carter Page, the lawyer Cohn (who turned out to be a different Cohn), Flynn, Sessions, and all the other people who are close to Trump who might have spoken at some time in their lives with a Russian in some capacity via the unmasked raw intel thanks to Susan Rice and a bevy of anonymous leaks.

So much for playing it close to the chest.

Contrast that with the Clinton Foundation investigations. We know they exist and that's about it. No leaks.


You're making quite the assumption here if you think all of those things have come from the FBI's investigation.

It is also like bill Clinton firing the head of the FBI 1 day before Vince Foster turned up dead and his files on whitewater went missing from his White House office and the investigation being turned over to the park police, who were not equipped to investigate a death.

LMFAO

You say that like the rest of his appointments are not from the same swamp.

pfffft

No other president has had to endure the wrath since taking office that Trump has done. Personally he makes me cringe with the things he does and the people who he has chosen and the moves he has made thus far. However I think he has now had enough of the Ryans, Pelosi, Warrens et all telling him what to do and blocking every move he has made. He has had enough and just pulled the virtual plug. We aint seen nothing yet, Go Trump...

I would agree, but we have a precedent with the Saturday Night Massacre under Nixon.

This smells bad and it's not going to sit well with a lot of people. Trump canned Comey at the recommendation of Sessions, who is in fact part of the investigation? Ugh.


It smells like the "Saturday Night Massacre" that preceded Nixon's impeachment.

Where Nixon demanded the AG fire the Special Prosecutor that was investigating him when things got too hot.

Honestly...Comey is not someone Trump wants to make an enemy of in Private life or otherwise.

I know right-wingers here are cheering, but honestly...this looks like the beginning of a #-storm, not the end of an investigation...



The Saturday Night Massacre is the term used by political commentators[1] to refer to U.S. President Richard Nixon's dismissal of independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox, and as a result the resignations of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus on October 20, 1973, during the Watergate scandal.[2][3]

en.wikipedia.org...



Ahhhh, Nixon.

There's that dem talking point.

I wondered who would be first.

Congrats! You must be on speed dial.

Wait for the leaks that will come out after he step out of the door, he will leave with a big bang.

Expect to be the Washington post head lines.

Could this be that the unmasker was Comey all along?

This administration lies with all the sophistication of a four year old and 40% of Americans still approve. I wonder how many more 'reasons' will be given by Spicey tomorrow.

Exactly. But Trump's base doesn't acknowledge anything of the sort. And never will.

It's pathetic. Embarrassing. We as a nation (hah) were laughing stock enough when this idiot got elected. Now we are about level with Pyongyang.

It is kind of funny how some folks that wanted Comey's head on a pike after his 10 day out message about the Abedin emails are now trying to make the guy out to be the second coming of christ...

Now if we are honest... he had a pretty good career and seemed to steer clear of most of the mud in DC, and by all accounts seemed to be fairly honest (for being DC anyway) political appointee.

That said... no matter which side you are on he has destroyed any credibility in DC, His waffling on Clinton/Lynch/Huma thing seriously destroyed his credibility.

I will wager he has lost the trust of a number of his agents, either through the earlier debacle (assuming they had more but he over road them)or his waffling in front of the senate as of late.

It probably is better for him to be gone, hopefully Trump will get someone in there that believes the law applies to everyone in the country from the homeless to the president.

Chuck Schumer says Trump made a big mistake firing Comey.

Perfect Chuck.

Anything to keep it off the Democrats !!



Chuckie boy can't have it both ways... he's on the record saying he has no confidence in Comey, just the other day :




The Trump administration distributed a one-page summary to reporters that it called 'additional background information and context' about the surprising personnel change. It consisted of anti-Comey statements from Democrats including Sen. Chuck Schumer, who said last Wednesday that 'I do not have confidence in him any longer.'

I wonder just who is telling Chuck Schumer how to wipe his butt after going to the bathroom. Obviously not smart enough to manage it himself geeze.

# meet fan.

I sincerely hope that the diehard Trump followers are waking up to the reality that everyone has been trying to tell them about for the last five months. I trust that there are many sincere Trump supporters who are honest at heart and will do the right thing. Of course, I'm also idealistic and may be fooling myself. But I have to believe that after all of the 180's, the broken promises, the lies, the tantrums, and now the firing of Comey will let them see what everyone else around the entire planet sees about Trump. Two of my conservative family members have already stated they made a mistake (they finally woke up from Trump's sabre rattling over NK). God save us now. We all need to work together to save our Republic. Partisanship be damned. We're Americans and we stand united against tyranny.

By doing what Sessions told him to do?

Well IF the majority of people actually voted that might mean something.

And it the popular vote actually meant something.

But hey.

4 glorious years of listening to the Trump hate.

The Teflon Don still kicking it.
