Trump fires James Comey, FBI director

Wow. Deeper and deeper. Reminds me of Archibald Cox and Richard Kleindist. The mystery continues.
Really reaching? Comey should have been fired last year when he gave Hillary a pass on her criminal acts. Weren't you the one who always wanted solid evidence before judging? I don't get it.

My favorite part of the letter Trump sent to Comey is the statement Trump makes, "Despite the fact that you visited me on three separate occasions and told me I was not the subject of an investigation......." Trump's self congratulatory exoneration to himself. We call that self aggrondisement. Like getting a recommendation for job application employment from your dad. It carries no weight of any kind and it actually makes actions more suspicious. It will be very interesting to hear how you guys spin this because you have to know what it looks like.
It is too early to tell how this effects the Russian collusion investigations that are ongoing. I will tell you that in my humble opinion, my opinion only, the Washington Post is going to be more and more emboldened to look for the smoking gun. There's a lot of investigative journalism out there right now and firing Comey just added meat to the gristmill.
As promised before, I will reserve final judgment until after the Senate/House/FBI/Ethics committee hearings have published their final reports.
But this is going to make this story run another six months.
PS: Predictable or not, google October 20, 1973 and see if you can see the parallels.
PSS: It also guarantees the sustainability of the Lockeroom for at least a year. Things were getting stail in here. Maybe Bilyous will come back. Or Dave Zin? Or the person who cannot be named but bought a daggar at our coalition auction that he never paid for.

One parallel I plainly see is the relentless carping and spiping by big media.., Watergate was an incredible power shift, away from elected officials and toward media presentation.., It was the birth of the MSM as a power player and their relentless pushing of their collective agenda..,
If this collective media assault continues, and it will, just like wave after wave hitting the beach, I'm afraid that Big Media will do more damage to the electoral process than any alleged Trump/Russia collusion would ever do.., If they can topple another president then no elected official is safe.., Its about control..,
If there's a lesson to be learned from Watergate, its that elected officials aren't the only ones lookin to fuck you..,
This is a watershed time for our Republic, and our freedoms to decide our own destiny have never been so at risk.., In my mind, Big Media IS Big Brother.., We need to question everything that's seen, said or printed and resist any attempt to be bent to their will.., What is happening now is nothing short of a Coup attempt for the biggest political prize on the planet.., Don't let these assholes fool ya..,
PS.., I'm good with Pence..,
PPS.., I'm way better with a clown like Trump than a thousand butthurt Hillary Clintons..,
