Trump kneecaps FBI director Comey, firing him today. Is there anyone surprised by this? We weren’t. Comey is the mother of all buffoons. Nobody took the guy seriously after he let Hillary (jail the bird) Clinton off the hook. Time after time Comey failed to explain his actions clearly. Some might say that he was responsible for Hillary’s defeat. Wrong! Hillary would have been in the clink if any FBI director worth his salt was at the helm. Hillary effectively prolonged her abysmal career. We await a new director who at the least should put the bracelets on Hillary Clinton. With judges like Bader-Ginsburg and FBI director Comey, Clinton never feared being indicted. Who was that who put the gun to Loretta Lynch’s head and said, “either your brains will be on the document or your signature.”
So now we will get to the bottom of this. Many questions remain unanswered. Hey Susan, yes you, Susan Rice, get ready to face the music. You and Hillary could be roommates
President Trump’s seemingly abrupt decision Tuesday to fire FBI Director James Comey was made at the recommendation of top Justice Department officials who claimed that his controversial handling of the Hillary Clinton email case last year rendered him unfit for the position.
Comey had been the subject of a review by the very top of the Trump Justice Department. Newly confirmed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein penned an extensive memo for Attorney General Jeff Sessions outlining concerns with Comey’s conduct during and after the Clinton email probe.
The memo said “almost everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes.” Rosenstein wrote that he could not defend Comey’s handling of the end of the investigation, and could not understand “his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken.”
The first count against Comey, according to Rosenstein, was his July 5, 2016 announcement during which he alleged Clinton and her colleagues were “extremely careless” in handling classified material on her personal email and server but also said the FBI would not recommend charges.
The memo said Comey was “wrong to usurp” then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s authority.
“It is not the function of the Director to make such an announcement,” Rosenstein wrote, adding that Comey “at most” should have said the FBI had finished its investigation and presented findings to prosecutors.
The memo said Comey compounded “the error” by holding a press conference to “release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation,” suggesting he did so “gratuitously.”
The memo said: “The Director laid out his version of the facts for the news media as if it were a closing argument, but without a trial.” Rosenstein called it a “textbook example” of what prosecutors and agents are “taught not to do.”
The second count against Comey concerned his Oct. 28, 2016 notification to Congress that the bureau was taking another look at the Clinton case in light of newly discovered emails. While Comey has said he did not want to conceal information, Rosenstein said simply refraining from publicizing “non-public information” would not have been concealment.
He countered Comey’s position by citing numerous former Justice officials who called the move inappropriate.
