Apparently, James Comey, the FBI Director, has been canned by President Donald Trump according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer
Rumors are obviously flying all over the place but the major reason why Trump let Comey go was because of his mishandling of Hillary Clinton’s email case. No seriously…
Rosenstein wrote in the memo that when Comey announced on July 5 that he had decided not to recommend charges in the Clinton case, he did so “without the authorization of duly appointed Justice Department leaders. Compounding the error, the director ignored another longstanding principle: we do not hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation . . . we never release it gratuitously . . . It is a textbook example of what federal prosecutors and agents are taught not to do.”
Rosenstein was also critical of Comey’s decision to reveal in late October that the Clinton email probe had resumed, and he dismissed the FBI director’s recent defense to Congress that not doing so would have effectively been to “conceal” important information.
This is VERY bizarre. Especially when many people credit Comey’s two press conferences as providing major help to Trump in the election. There has to be more to this and I’m sure I’ll have longer post on this tomorrow morning.
