Trump Administration Pushes Out FBI Director Comey (Updated with Trump's Letter To Comey)

Washington, DC...In a developing story the Trump Administration has forced out FBI Director James Comey. This comes on recommendations from the Attorney General & Deputy Attorney General. A brief statement from the White House has been released...



Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office. President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” said President Trump.

A search for a new permanent FBI Director will begin immediately.

Below is text of President Trump's letter to Director Comey...

"Dear Director Comey:

I have received the attached letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General of the United States recommending your dismissal as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately.

While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau.

It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.

I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors.

Donald J. Trump."

the potus is an (&$$@#)($!)@$&
he doesn't have a clue as to how to run the government.
one cannot run it like a business.
good luck getting some one in as the new head of the FBI.
he's cutting his nose off to spite his face.
what an A^$&
Best of luck to FBI Director Comey. There should be a mass exodus at the FBI, then what would the )_(@^*&@#^+_ potus do?

        Yates Testimony Republicans Deflection
        Posted on: 2017-05-09 18:29:27   By: Anonymous
         
        Former Deputy Atty Gen Yates tried to give testimony about the subject of the hearing - the Flynn appointment , but the Republicans tried to deflect, distract the hearing from the subject at hand.
        This effort only caused more questions as to why after many warnings from the Obama administration , and Deputy Yates the tRump transition staff ignored the warnings , then did fire Flynn only begging more questions why?

        The evidence of the tRump campaign and Russian influences in the 2016 election, have been documented . Denying this is the cornerstone of the tRump denial of any connection.

        This betrayal of America is sedition , and treason.

          .....and just what documentation are you referring to. Better check the known facts, before spouting off. Documents must be proven as fact before being used as evidence . Just a lesson.

    The ONLY chaos is watching the Liberal Progressive Socialist Democrats in full melt down. Their last hope is Commiefornia but that is a powder keg ready to blow up in their faces at any time as well.

    Let the melt down continue.

Oh, and we are supposed to believe Trump cares one iota about how Comey handled poor Hillary?! Ha! What a crock! He is so guilty!!!
He will not last the year!
Can you even imagine how the history books will handle the chapter on this administration? It will be a humorous book, and maybe a comedy movie some day.

You democrats who follow your party no matter what are IDIOTS and BLIND.....and LOSERS TOO ha ha ha ha ha, oh I'm sorry, please excuse me, idiots get what they deserve, ignorance is what you have taught yourselves, and you are some of the best criers this generation has ever seen.
