    And everyone related to Trump or Trump's campaign!

    And yet, Trump LOVED him when he committed most of those improprieties. . .Loved him in July 2016, loved him in October and November 2016, loved him in January, February and March, loved him in April.

    And yesterday. . .in TWO HOURS time. . .the day after Yates/Clapper testimonies, a week before Comey's testimony. . .Trump decided "he was doing a bad job" and needed to be fired. . .not today, not tomorrow, not when Comey got back to Washington, or after consulting with Congress or Senate. . not. . .IMMEDIATELY!

    Trump may succeed in derailing the investigation by putting one of his pawn as the head of the FBI. . .but that also means that he will NEVER be free of the suspicion and will NEVER be a respected, accepted President.

    Trump's legacy is already dead. For ⅔ of all Americans, and for ¾ of the world, he will always be a Putin's puppet and a FAKE.

    Scotsman I think the FBI was already politicised. Comey was heavily involved in politics . Any new leader might be better.

    Again with the disinformation. Yes, Bill Clinton fired William Sessions, a Reagan appointee. The difference is that Sessions had been under investigation for ethical violations since the G.H.W. Bush administration. But hey Dog, don't let reality interfere with your defense of Trump.

    Not quite to the extent of the levels seen during the last months of the campaign.
    Comey's position is to the extent that its a political appointment.

    Comey was forced into the political spotlight due to criminal behavior of a candidate.
    Once that blood gets tasted it's a short trip to blood lust.
    But it is a political appointment so the danger us always there.

    And you ignored the criminal behavior of Trump which had been proven in Court unlike your claims of Clinton most of which is based on proven lies, and he was fined for several times. Now he is again violating the Constitution, the ethics committee, and the law, and you will ignore that too. Perhaps Comey was getting too close to the truth, and now Trump can appoint some lackey like Christie, or Guiliani, to ignore the crooked liar Trumps dealings.

    Funny you should say that. . .because, actually, as it turned out AFTER the elections. . .his the "criminal behaviour" he was investigating was focused on TRUMP's campaign criminal, treasonous behaviour, a lot more than on Hillary Clinton.

    Because, let's face it, Hillary Clinton NEVER got condemn for that "criminal behaviour," and the investigation is long gone.

    What is left and ON GOING is the investigation on Trump and his campaign friends.. . . and this is also the reason Comey was fired. . .getting too close!

    Comey stated that her behavior was criminal but chose to rewrite law by requiring intent.
    So far there is nothung but innuendo regarding Trump.
    And still no word on why it was not worth a mention when a beleaguered Clinton (the one who won) firing his FBI chief.

    I'm not sure if you are just faking stupidity or if it is your natural state.

    NO ONE has ever questioned the fact that Comey was an unpredictable (to say the least) chief, and a loose canon. What EVERYONE questions is why wasn't he fired in January? Why was he praised from July through MARCH by Trump who gave him ALL HIS TRUST and even admiration, but. . .shortly after Comey testify that there really WAS an ongoing investigation on Trump's campaign, Trump began to turn on him.
    Then, just a few days after Comey testified that it "made him mildly nauseous to believe that he may have had an influence in the election outcome," Trump had to fire him (under FALSE claim that he had lost the respect of his subordinates at the FBI). . .and several other FALSE excuses (like pointing the finger at Session and the deputy AG) Trump couldn't even wait ONE DAY to get him fired. . .returning to his days as a TV show personality!

    So funny!

    Trump is getting closer to the end every day. I'm not sure if he will die of a heart attack, or be taken away to an asylum, or be impeached first!

    But the day is coming!
