President Trump Fires FBI Director James Comey

screen-shot-2017-05-10-at-4-16-59-pmPresident Trump, acting upon the recommendations of the Department of Justice, fired FBI Director James Comey. Trump cited a lack of confidence and public trust in Director Comey, as the reason for his firing.

“It is essential that we find new leadership for the F.B.I. that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” President Trump said.

Comey had handled the Hillary Clinton email server case, closed it and reopened it, and then determined that there was not enough evidence to prosecute Mrs. Clinton, a decision widely criticized and believed to be politically motivated.

Mr. Comey testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, stating that while secretary of state, Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, had “forwarded hundreds of thousands of emails, some of which contained classified information,” to her husband Anthony Weiner. Comey’s firing came hours after the FBI modified his testimony a week ago, about how classified information ended up on the disgraced former congressman Anthony D. Weiner’ laptop.

After the 2016 Presidential election, in what appeared to be a decision fueled by political motivation, Director Comey began an investigation into Trump’s political advisors and their financial ties to Russia, and by implication appeared to be trying to make the case that Trump’s ties to Russia, financial and / or political, unduly affected the 2016 Presidential election.

screen-shot-2017-05-14-at-3-36-27-pmWhile there have been numerous documented evidences made known to the public of the Clinton email server scandal, there has been no evidence uncovered or presented to the public, showing that either Trump or any his aides, colluded in any way with Russia to undermine, influence, or corrupt the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election.

The Clintons have been taking massive amounts in foreign donations, much of them coming from Middle East Muslim countries, for years. Barack Obama has been caught on tape colluding with outgoing president Dmitry Medvedev of Russia, telling him that after the 2008 election he would have “more flexibility.” More recently, Obama advertised for Emmanuel Macron, a liberal-globalist presidential candidate, openly influencing the elections in France.

 

The Trump-Russia FBI investigation has been viewed by many as a political witch hunt.

screen-shot-2017-05-10-at-4-26-52-pmPresident Trump was informed by Mr. Comey, on three separate occasions, that he was not under investigation, but critics of Comey’s firing stated that Trump had fired an FBI director who was involved in an open investigation against Trump’s former staff.

Mr. Comey was considered by many to be an independent and unpredictable FBI director capable of disrupting and interfering with President Trump’s administration and the president’s foreign policy, including his relations with Russia.

The White House announced late Tuesday night that Mr. Trump would meet on Wednesday in the Oval Office with Sergey V. Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister.

Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House adviser, said that the Comey firing was not related to Russia. “Today’s actions had zero to do with that,” she said in an interview on CNN.

When asked by reporters at the White House why he fired Director Comey, Trump replied, “Because he wasn’t doing a good job, very simply, he was not doing a good job.”

    The “fakemedia” double standard alive and well. WJC fired his FBI director….no outrage.

    To all who care get used to the “fake outrage” as presented by the “fake news” over every little thing that trump does in office. These are their typical “scare tactics” magnified tenfold.

    BUT they are not fooling those with half a brain…. meaning….if this outrages you, you have only got half of a brain. There are so many college educated geniuses in this country that only have half a brain, because they have been indoctrinated, and not educated…taught to follow dictated talking points and not think for themselves.

      M Jo,
      We all know it is the globalists trying to take Trump down. The majority of middle America sees this for what it is a globalist coup, and are not falling for it. It is based on innuendo and hearsay, and intended to create false hype that distracts from the successes Trump is having in “making America great again”. The MSM is grasping at straws. Comey himself testified in court that he did not prosecute Clinton because he did not want to influence the election, this is a violation of the law…in other words Comey is guilty of obstructing justice not the other way around. Trump’s ties to Russia also pale in comparison to Clinton’s ties to Russia especially regarding uranium mines. Now tell me, where is the media outrage?????????? Obama swore to uphold the constitution of this country, yet he fought against it every step of the way committing crime upon crime for the globalist shadow government. Yet no Media outrage?????

      Do you notice a trend here? Its called the distraction. Distraction from the real crimes and focus on the petty. All of a sudden CNN cares about the rule of law, which they ignored for the past 8 years as this country was led into perdition by Obama and the people of this country were robbed of their wealth by the globalist UN led technocrats. Think about it this way, Grandma was a frugal saver of money and put a hundred dollars a week into her piggy bank. Low interest rates under Obama coupled with double digit inflation (If you count food and fuel costs which they conveniently do not count anymore) have literally robbed her of her wealth. Throw in a zero percent increase in SSI benefits over that time due to the inaccurate means of counting inflation and now grandma’s living in a state of poverty, barely able to put food on the table. This is called robbery via monetary manipulation and until America wakes up to this they will not see what these Globalists are doing on a grand scale to rob this country of its wealth. It is like Babylon in the Bible celebrating and getting drunk until the Persians were within their city walls and they were no more.

      The media is a joke, and to those who have eyes to see it is almost laughable at how bad they are were it not for the fact that half the country is blind to what is really going on. Ask yourself this question. Do you want some unelected world leader telling you how to live while they tax you to death just like Venezuela? That is where the globalists wantto take this country and world to. Just like 1984 the ministry of Truth (MSM) does nothing but promote lies to keep the population dumb and blind. You should read that book if you get a chance, it might change your life around and get you to think for yourself instead of letting the ministry of truth tell you what to think.

    This is for all the SJW’s out there. Democrat (socialist) policies do more to hurt the poor than do the republican policies. The democrats claim they want to tax the rich to feed the poor, but what inevitably happens is that the poor get poorer and the divide between rich and poor grows. Under Obama this was the case. regulation upon regulation ONLY helps the rich get richer, because they have the means to protect their wealth and to hire people that can do this for them. the poor and the middle class on the other hand are stifled by regulations and is why the middle class always bears the brunt of the tax load in the country. This is even more apparent in the business world as democratic regulations benefit big businesses, because they can afford to comply with the regulations, but upstart businesses cannot compete with them. So for example a mom and pop pharmacy has a very hard time competing with Wallgreens, and is often put out of business when a Wallgreens moves into town primarily based on the compliance with government mandate. This is the reason why most big businesses support democrats in this country, but why most small business owners support republicans.

    This divide will increase in the future as small business profit margins begin to dwindle, and they cannot afford to keep up with the technological modernization that is coming on most industries. The big widget makers can afford to introduce robotics to the means of production, while the small businesses have to assume huge debts to do so at best, or not upgrade at all and become obsolete. The More government increases regulation now will determine how great this divide is in the future. Soon, you will have a class of “proles” and a class of managers and bureaucrats with nothing in between…no middle class that is empowered to speak up against the technocracy. This is what we have in Venezuela where they are eating their shoes right now.

    Chances are, if we do not make America great again, all you SJW”S that are living in your parents basement now are going to be living on the streets, or worse within 20 years. This is known as the A.I. singularity or technological singularity. If you are not familiar with this, look it up as this will happen in your lifetime. Inevitably, the Mark of the beast is involved in this as man will have to use technology to upgrade themselves (cyborgs), which will eventually turn on them….The Bible talks extensively on this. Funny how a 2000+ year old book foresaw this coming!
