Trump Fires Comey And Lies About The Reason
The Donald fired the Director of the FBI who is investigating possible collusion between his administration and Russian interference in his election. He continues to believe that we are all as gullible, or self serving, as those who voted for him. That is the only way that anyone could accept the reason he offered for dismissing Comey. He had praised Comey during his campaign for his investigation of Hillary Clinton's use of her email account. Now he expects us to believe that he fired Comey because of the way he handled the Clinton investigation. There is only one explanation for his action, and the ugly way in way in which he handled it. He fired Comey while he was in California speaking to an audience of FBI agents. That disrespectful action was taken because he did not believe that he could control the investigation with Comey at the head of the FBI. We can not let Trump get away with this. Congress should demand a special prosecutor to lead the investigation into possible collusion between Trump associates and Russian agents who influenced the election. Unfortunately Republicans cannot be counted on to make that demand. This is the most serious problem that we have faced since Richard Nixon was forced to resign from office after he fired the special prosecutor investigating his illegal activities.
