Why now? Trump should be thrilled to pieces that the election was subverted to his benefit.

What is it, again, that the FBI is investigating about Trump, right now?

Comey was scheduled to testify on the subject, next week.

He's not going to now.

Interesting.

It's what you get when you fail. Maybe he is looking for a Lawyer about now, nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

Oh, he didn't fail. You figure that the director of the FBI is a Democrat? Probably, the director of the EPA is.

Dan Rather;
Future generations may mark today as one of the truly dark days in American history, a history that may soon take an even more ominous turn.
President Trump's sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey is a matter that should deeply concern every American, regardless of party, partisan politics or ideological leanings.
The independence of our law enforcement is at the bedrock of our democracy. That independance, already grievously shaken under the brief tenure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is now shattered by uncertainty.
The firing of an FBI Director is always a very serious matter in normal times. But these times aren't normal. Far from it. The Bureau is engaged in one of the most important and perilous investigations of this or any other presidency—the investigation of connections between the Trump election campaign and the Russian government.
The questions mount and the shadow grows darker. What were those connections? What did Mr. Trump know about them and when did he know it? How can the President explain the serious allegations against his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn? And what is President Trump hiding in this regard? It’s imperative that the nation—We The People—get answers to those questions. It will take time, but the process must start now.
A politicized FBI is the last thing we need as we struggle through the maze of lies, concealment and ever-deepening mysteries. The last time a President fired prosecutors who were investigating him was Richard Nixon during the widespread criminal conspiracy known for short as “Watergate.” We all know how that turned out. In real ways, this potential scandal and coverup are much graver. We are talking about the very security of the United States and the sanctity of our republic.
Thomas Paine famously wrote in 1776: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. "
I see this as having the potential for a similar reflection point in our American story. If there is a cover up, if our nation is at the risk that has certainly been more than suggested, it is incumbent upon everyone who claims to love this nation to demand answers.
We need a special prosecutor. We need an independent investigation. There is, obviously, much we don’t know about what has just happened, why it happened and why now. Just as obviously there is much more, so much more that we need know. We need to damn the lies and expose the truth.

Anyone that thinks law enforcement is independent of politics doesn't have the capacity to think.

Anyone who thinks that Trump can stop everyone investigating his connection to the Russians is delusional.

Do you have any idea how the impeachment process works? If you did it would be clear why impeachment is not going to happen anytime soon.

Trump's ass is owned by the Russians. They are his business investors and they have blackmail footage of some kinky episode.

He's a traitor, more than likely.

Well, you may want to google. With Republicans in charge of either house quite a lot (it won't happen). Even with Democrats holding both houses, odds are still pretty low baring an obvious illegal act. Only happened twice ever. Had Nixon not resigned, that would have been the third. Even with impeachment, it just means Pense becomes the president.

The National just reported Comey is the one who was loose liped about the Clinton emails.

You know the emails Trump used against Clinton in the elections. The information the Russian supposedly hacked.......

Comey was trying to cover his own mistakes. Anyone with a brain can figure that out. Watch tonight's national report

The Dumpster just keeps on shooting himself in the foot. First the moronic and brutal health care bill and now firing the man in charge of the investigation Russian involvement in the election. He must be thinking that if such actions work for Putin why wouldn't they work for him?

Trump people to every Democrat: Did you think Comey should be fired for his handling of the Clinton email investigation?

Every Democrat: Yes

But now the 'it's her turn' crowd is upset that Trump fired Comey because Russia........

Here's a hint. Impeachment doesn't involve an uprising. But thanks for this admission that you don't know what the f*ck you're talking about. I'll bookmark it.
