Anyone close to a TV or Radio knows by now that President Trump fired FBI Comey Director around dinner time on Tuesday. What the letters below indicate, especially the one from the Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, is that he was fired because of the way he handled the Hillary Clinton investigation, opining that he couldn’t defend Comey’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails.
In actuality Comey deserved to be fired, he was unqualified to hold the office of FBI director—most beltway politicians would agree with that statement twenty-four hours ago. And while the Democrats will say the FBI director was fired to stop the Russia investigation, that is a ridiculous suggestion as the people who may be investigating the possible Trump Team/Russia collusion are still secure in their jobs.
As for the new calls for an special prosecutor, it’s doubtful that will happen. Along with the fact that it’s not necessary, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein his direct superior and the person who wrote the letter strongly recommending Comey’s ouster, is the same person would have to appoint the prosecutor. Catherine Herridge of Fox said the timing of the Comey timing was based on the fact that Rosenstein was only recently confirmed.
“Almost everyone agrees the Director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives”
(…) “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,”
