TRUMP FIRES FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY

JONATHAN TURLEY

President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey this evening in a surprise move.  Various politicians and the media have openly referred to the act as “Nixonian” and “another Saturday Night Massacre.”  I have previously stated how the Saturday Day Massacre has been misrepresented.  I also do not agree with Jeff Toobin on CNN tonight that the decision was clearly due to the fact that Comey’s investigation was getting “too close” to President Trump.  I agree that the timing is concerning and legitimately questioned.  However, the Administration may also have waited for the Deputy Attorney General to be confirmed to allow a career prosecutor to review the matter and to concur with the decision.

    • Trump fired the FBI director as soon as he had a career prosecutor confirmed as deputy attorney general to investigate the case. Obama could not have fired the FBI director in this heat of the campaign despite having good cause to do so
