Citing FBI handling of Clinton emails, Donald Trump fires James Comey

Citing FBI handling of Clinton emails, Donald Trump fires James Comey

In his letter to Comey, Trump said the move was recommended by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he told Trump in a phone call Tuesday afternoon that he was "making a big mistake" in firing Comey. "I wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors".

Shortly after announcing that Trump fired Comey, the White House distributed a list of articles listing instances in which top Democrats criticized Comey.

"We are careening ever closer to a Constitutional crisis, and this development only underscores why we must appoint a special prosecutor to fully investigate any dealings the Trump campaign or administration had with Russian Federation", said Sen. Most of the email chains on the laptop containing classified information were not the result of forwarding, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. "As a result, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges to never repeat them".

I'll defend country, says new French President Macron
Le Pen favored ditching the euro and creating stricter business-protectionist measures and a large reduction in immigration. Parisians lined the streets outside Macron's campaign headquarters to see his motorcade whisk him away to the Louvre party.

It is deeply troubling that the President has fired the FBI director during an active counterintelligence investigation into improper contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"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", Rosenstein argued in his memo. "In that context, silence is not concealment".

The firing has already drawn criticism. "President Trump's dismissal of FBI Director Comey smacks of President Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre".

Over the last few months there has been tension between Justice Department leadership and senior staff of FBI regarding the handling of the Clinton investigation and how Comey was running the agency, according to multiple officials.

Regarding "Trump fires FBI Director James Comey" (May 9): So, our new president, who is smarter than our generals, knows North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is obsolete, doesn't believe in climate science, who considers Kim Jong-un, Rodrigo Duterte and Vladimir Putin worthy of praise, is certain President Obama was not a USA citizen and that he wiretapped his residence, has fired the one man who significantly aided his run for the presidency in the last weeks of the campaign. He also wrote that the FBI suffered "substantial damage" to its credibility in the past year as a result of Comey's actions related to the Clinton investigation.

Trump has ridiculed the investigations as a "hoax" and has denied that his campaign was involved in Russia's meddling.

And Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., tweeted Comey should be "immediately called to testify in an open hearing about the status of Russia/Trump investigation".

After Clinton's loss, former President Bill Clinton blamed Comey for it, as have many Clinton staffers, at least in part.
