Trump fires the guy investigating him on the recommendation of a guy that had to recuse himself from that investigation.

Haha what a shit show. This is pretty much going exactly as expected. Trump has turned this country into a global embarrassment.

Now on to ww3 and more tax cuts for rich people

It's all a nice distraction, isn't it?

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

well stated maui

Schumer, Chuck and Amy both, are pieces of shit.

 

For those like Wilkie, who are suddenly whining about the firing of a very corrupt Comey, just watch this testimony and see if YOU would want this guy heading up law enforcement:

Your statement needs to be amended to read Your version of the truth.

Deputy AG says he 'cannot defend' Comey's handling of FBI's investigation of Clinton emails

 

President Donald Trump terminated FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday at the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Sessions told Trump in a letter that he believes "a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI."

In a memorandum titled "Restoring public confidence in the FBI," Rosenstein said he couldn't defend Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails.

 

"The Director was wrong to usurp the Attorney General's authority on July 5, 2016, and announce his conclusion that the case should be closed without prosecution. It is not the function of the Director to make such an announcement," the deputy attorney general said.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Last summer, Comey said "no charges are appropriate" in the FBI's investigation of Clinton.
"Although there is evidence of potential violations regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case," he said in July.

Rosenstein said that the dismissed FBI director compounded the error when he "ignored another longstanding principle: we do not hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation."

The deputy attorney general was referring to Comey's letter to Congress, which said the FBI was probing an additional batch of emails related to the Clinton investigation. Comey later announced that the FBI had "not changed its conclusions" after reviewing the new cache of emails.

The former Democratic nominee has cited Comey's letter, coming a little more than a week before the 2016 presidential election, as a contributing factor to her loss.

Rosenstein said that such information may be disclosed in legal proceedings, but that it's not something that should be done "gratuitously."

"The Director laid out his version of the facts for the news media as if it were a closing argument, but without a trial. It is a textbook example of what federal prosecutors and agents are taught not to do," he said.

Comey has defended his actions, saying that he was simply trying to not conceal the FBI's decision to investigate the additional emails.

But Rosenstein refuted Comey's language, saying that federal agents "are not concealing anything" when conducting an investigation quietly.

"In that context, silence is not concealment," the deputy attorney general said.

Here are Sessions' letter and Rosenstein's memo on Comey's removal:

The hypocrisy of the Left and of most politicians is staggering....

 

The USA is becoming an embarrassment because of all of them....Obama, Schumer, Pelosi, Reid, HRC, Trump. McConnell,etc.....

 

We need to get back to the Constitution as a governing tool; not party affiliation/lobbyists

Sometimes Mex the emperor has no clothes. Sometimes the obvious answer is the right answer.

what you don't get wilkie, and what you apparently will never get, is that I despise trump. because I happen to agree that comey is a third degree asswipe, you automatically assume I am defending trump... 

 

you on the other hand, voted for the biggest piece of shit to win the cheat themselves into the DNC nomination in the history of American politics. and you're proud of it

 

why? because you're a party hack. Incapable of putting principal before party. you should be embarrassed

 

The truth often hurts, and it hurts the most intensely to those who don't realize the truth

Exactly.

 

You'd have people like Schumer, Pelosi, obama and everyone else applauding it.  just like when they all wanted him fired in September 2016.

After months and months of investigating (legal AND illegal investigations) and under testimony the FBI, NSA, and head of US Intelligence have TOLD YOU, told Congress, told the American people, point blank, that there is ZERO evidence of a Russia-Trump election relationship.  WTF more do you need to hear Wilkie?

 

Do you need CNN to say it before you will believe it?  No smoke, no fire, just an embarrassment of partisanship by you and your horrific political party.

I have seen no report from any source saying the investigation is concluded and all the parties are exonerated. I agreed to wait until the investigating committees reports have been issued. The Watergate investigations took a year and a half.

Again, the FBI Director, the NSA, and the head of the US intelligence community all testified there was ZERO, let me repeat it again slowly, Z-E-R-O evidence of Trump-Russia collusion...

 

Still won't come back to Earth on this one Wilk?
