You think Comey himself was doing any investigating?
Trump is in charge of the Executive branch.
Everyone in it serves at his pleasure.
He doesn't need a reason to fire anyone.

I agree. He also didn't need to go on TV to dig himself a hole.

Yet...there he was.

I get that no one here is going to provide a defense for what is indefensible. I just wish someone on the Trump train could say what is obvious.

He f'd up in the Holt interview. It's not a made up story by the media. It's not a deep state conspiracy. It's him saying stupid shit that guaranteed what we see going on today had to happen.

Well said.
Unfortunately he cannot stop digging what perhaps will be his own political grave.
His attorney must be beside himself.
Trump obviously is not following sound legal advice about shutting up.
It's sad as he has some very good ideas and a solid agenda.

It is very defensible. It is all about the context and power. The media kept on reporting stories, which were false, keeping President Trump under a cloud of being an illegitimate president, due to criminal activity. Comey had information that would have stopped the false media reports and remove the cloud. Trump terminated Comey for not setting the record straight and removing the cloud of the Russia investigation from President Trump.

Any reasonable person would be frustrated by an employee who had information that would vindicate them and that employee refused to provide that information. Especially, in light of the employee's past actions willingly vindicating another.

The real question is why did Comey fail to vindicate the Administration? Was he trying to keep power over the President by keeping the cloud of suspicion?

The media has been hanging its hat on the RUSSIANS for months now.

Suddenly, THIS is the biggest thing out there.
It doesn't take an Eintstein to see what is going on.

Like this resonates with anyone other than pure lunatics...

A total non-starter, desensitized, boring, transparent attempt at deflection away from the BIG election loss, and ultimately the full criminal investigation of------>The Clintons

That story breaking today was designed to get the liberal shooting off the news cycle. Nothing more.

This is how the left operates.
Pardon me while I go

I'm sure damning concrete evidence will appear soon enough...in fact, I can practically guarantee it...

They learned their lesson the first time with Trump.
Comey did admit to some collusion and corruption when he mentioned Lynch and the Clinton 'matter'.

Asst. US Attorney Rosenstein warns America about media sources:

"Do not trust anonymous officials"....

Its official CNN IS "very fake news" along with the rest of the alt-left press.

'The Russians' is just a rouse in the impeachment drive to get Trump removed from his presidency.

The country no longer trusts the FBI, too, but especially Rosenstein.
