FBI Director Comey: You’re Fired
Yes, this really just happened.
As is the nature of breaking news, little information is known beyond the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Trump. However, the very unusual firing of an FBI Director does raise many questions that will be asked relentlessly in the coming days and weeks.
Why did President Trump fire FBI Director James Comey? More specifically, why right now? Why by way of a letter?
For a president who made a past career out of firing people a must-see televised event that included extensive analysis of his reasoning, this firing-by-opaque-letter is very odd.
Seems like a situation for the FBI to investigate.
