Just let the Man do his job.
Why is everybody attacking the ELECTED president?
Come up with better ideas and policies and in 4 years minus 120 days you are up.
All Spider-Man fans will recognize the line, “With great power comes great responsibility.” We need to act now on that maxim’s converse: When great power is placed in the hands of one who cannot be trusted to act responsibly, we must take that power back.

The issue isn't what Comey did.
He isn't President. And now he's not even FBI director.
It's what Trump did.
HIRONO: So if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice opposes a specific investigation, can they halt that FBI investigation?
COMEY: In theory yes.
HIRONO: Has it happened?
COMEY: Not in my experience. Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that -- without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don't see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it.But I'm talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It's not happened in my experience.

I think there is no memo in this context.
