|Donald J. Trump fires FBI director James Comey out the cannon.|
Donald J. Trump brutally fired FBI Director James Comey out the cannon after he misled the Senate by claiming Huma Abedin sent classified emails to former congressman Anthony Weiner.
Trump wrote: "You are hereby terminated and removed from office immediately. But Comey found out on live television says The Daily Mail.
Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein wrote a formal memo stating they have no confidence in him.
Now Democrats are saying that he's "hiding" something. The FBI is actively looking into the collusion between Trump campaign team and Russian hackers. Trump claims that Comey told him three times that he was not under investigation.
Comey was blindsided by this.
The letter sent shockwaves through Washington, DC and the FBI offices across the nation.
"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 Trump in a statement.
The Justice Department inspector general opened an investigation into Comey's in January. Comey had made a statement on the email probe 11 days before the election. It was cited by Hillary Clinton that the Comey letter played a part in her failed campaign.
Firing Comey out the cannon is a big deal. Now Democrats and some Republicans are calling for a special prosecutor to investigate Trump.
This was a totally stupid move!
Now the allegations of Russian meddling in the election are "front and center."
