“The FBI is one of our nation’s most cherished and respected institutions, and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said in a statement.
The White House said the search for a new FBI director was beginning immediately.
The White House made the stunning announcement shortly after the FBI corrected a sentence in Comey’s sworn testimony on Capitol Hill last week. Comey told lawmakers that Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, had sent “hundreds and thousands” of emails to her husband’s laptop, including some with classified information.
On Tuesday, the FBI said in a two-page letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that only “a small number” of the thousands of emails found on the laptop had been forwarded there while most had simply been backed up from electronic devices. Most of the email chains on the laptop containing classified information were not the result of forwarding, the FBI said.
Comey, 56, was nominated by Hussein Obama for the FBI post in 2013 to a 10-year term. Once praised for his independence and integrity, Comey has spent three decades in law enforcement and has been no stranger to controversy.
Comey’s been increasingly exposed as a very entrenched swamp creature who was in service to Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, the Democrat Party and ultimately himself before the American people or the nation.
Were there new revelations that rose to the level where a tweet was not the appropriate response? Perhaps, though recent tweets over the past few days did little to disguise President Trump’s disgust with the chronically under performing Director who always seemed to find a way not to prosecute the guilty when they were well connected to the establishment and the Democrat Party. Whatever the immediate motivation, enough was clearly enough.
