Business Insider: James Comey fired as FBI Director

Quote:
In a letter sent to Comey, Trump said he accepted the reccomendation of Sessions and Rosenstein, which was to fire Comey. His termination is effective immediately.

"While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau," Trump wrote. "It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission."

True.

But they were drained eventually, and this is definitely a good place to start.

Why mention that Comey told him he wasn't under investigation, and then fire him? It's weird.

Alternative explanation from CNN: Hey, Trump was just following Putin's orders.

Comey's troubles became insurmountable when a felon became the Democrat Party nominee and her husband compromised the investigation by his secret meeting with the AG.

Mr. Comey will have plenty of company under the Clinton bus.
