Her and everyone around her and from her to the top, which means Obummer also!

boh347 05-09-2017 06:22 PM

Yup he gone.

texasdeerhunter 05-09-2017 06:30 PM

I guess he just wanted to wait until he had the hearing before he fired him? Timing is curious to me. Why didn't he just fire him from the get go, then he would have been subpoenaed to appear at the hearing anyway.

Brute Killer 05-09-2017 06:37 PM

Mark Levin is saying that there will be no prosecution of Clinton.

flywise 05-09-2017 06:46 PM

No one will prosecute a Clinton
they have done as much damage to this country as anyone ever has not to mention what they have done to other poor countries and the only punishment they will ever see will happen shortly after they are dead

Comey made many mistakes & needed to be fired but timing is questionable, I bet Putin is laughing ....

Capt.Brown 05-09-2017 07:28 PM

The far left think Comey covered Trump during the election. The far right thinks Comey covered for Hillary by not indicting. You can't make this stuff up, folks.

You assume that's how it went down. The letter makes it official public record.

100%TtId 05-09-2017 08:29 PM

Fox now has helicopter coverage of Comey's motorcade going to his previously scheduled speech in LA.

Instead of a white Ford Bronco, we've got a caravan of black limos and Suburbans.

Idiocracy.

Reports are he found out from the media while he was out of town giving a speech.

Was Session investigating Pres. Clinton .... NO. Session refused to step down after engaging in a sham transaction to avoid paying taxes on his use of an FBI limousine to take him to and from work, that he had billed the government for a security fence around his home that provided no security and that he had arranged business trips to places where he could meet with relatives.

Comey was in LA when he received a letter of termination.

If you watched The Five on Fox this evening, Catherine Herridge's report gave insights as to the inner workings of the intelligence community and why Comey had to go. Pretty simple - FBI staff believed he was giving Hillary a pass on the email scandal and he lost their trust. Essentially confirming what most of us have thought since the July press conference. She thought he may be the one responsible for slow-walking the reporting of the names who were involved in the unmasking scandal (in effect, protecting Obama as well). I bet Hillary loses some sleep tonight.

stickerpatch59 05-10-2017 08:18 AM

he should have been fired a hundred and so days ago imo.
who is his replacement, anyone know?

niceg3s 05-10-2017 08:31 AM

Dems: Comey is working with Republicans against Clinton and should be step down from the investigation.
Dems: Comey helped Trump when the election and should resign.
***Trump fires Comey***
Dems: Comey was doing an exceptional job and was clearly fired because of the... wait for... Russians.

Or maybe he knew that by bringing charges the dems would have to replace Clinton and we could be staring at a President Biden or Winfrey? Doesn't make it right and I don't want the FBI director making political decisions. Easier said than done though when a politician (the president) decides if you get to keep your job. I think he should be gone but the timing is bad optics.

Ironman 05-10-2017 11:05 AM

Hilary blames Comey for losing the election.
Dems want Comey to be fired.
Trump fires Comey.
Dems want an investigation into the firing of Comey.

The hypocrisy never ends.

Let's not look at this in a vacuum. You act like 2+2=4 and there is no more to the story. If Trump wanted Comey fired for the Hillary screw up it could/should have been done months ago. The FBI was kinda in the middle of a big investigation involving the Russians and Trump's campaign. If y'all can't see that the timing of the firing looks bad, you aren't being very objective.

I forgot. The Russians are coming.........THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING!!!:rolleyes:

If you take the time, you will discover that a lot of the FBI personnel had lost all faith in Comey, but don't let that stand in the way of a good conspiracy theory.

Exactly right
His leadership is lacking at best. Russia had NOTHING to do with our last elections outcome and the premise is (besides being a joke) nothing more than the dem party's excuse to their idiot followers

So are you suggesting he should have been kept in his position because of timing?? I don't know how the FBI operates but I guarantee you that he as the head of the agency has zero involvement in the actual investigation. Every agency leader is a basically a political puppet and has zero hands on as to the day to day operations or investigations going on at any particular time. For anyone to suggest this is being done to prevent the smoking gun with the Ruskies investigation is ludicrous at best.

I'm sure the FBI is brimming with faith right now. Probably a line forming for volunteers to finish the unbiased investigation of the president's campaign. :rolleyes:

So what's your point?

Listen, Russia didn't get Trump elected.
Hell! Trump didn't get Trump elected.
Hilary Clinton got Trump elected, pure and simple!

My point is that I like independent/unbiased investigations of those in power. Not just when we are investigating the Dems. I'm not sure what influence Russia has on our president. I think that is what this investigation was supposed to tell us. If none, then great. I know there was quite a bit of smoke and this is why the FBI was investigating. Looks bad when you fire the guy in charge during the investigation of your campaign. I'm not saying he shouldn't have been fired. I would think you either or do it when they screw up or after the investigation....unless you want to influence the investigation.

They have had since Nov 7 to dig up any proof of a Russian connection. If there was any evidence found it would have leaked by now.

I has been proven with many months of investigation that there is nothing to be found.
The only thing found during this process is that the obama admid was breaking federal law by spying on Trump and many other people, thats the investigation that needs to be taking place

LWC 05-10-2017 12:52 PM

So 6 months of investigating and nothing leaked to the public is now considered proof that there was no wrongdoing? Sounds legit.

How did Russia influence Trumps campaign? This Russia stuff came up before the election. Now that Trump won........by electoral college mine you, they are investigating what influence Russia has on Trump. So which is it? Russia got Trump elected and now has influence on him, or the country elected Trump, but Russia may have influence on him. This has been a witch hunt since BEFORE THE ELECTION. Is this just a farce intended to shield Clintons relationship with Russia? We all know she has one. What freaking gives?:rolleyes:

Plenty of evidence has leaked. If it wasn't for the leaks Flynn would still be on the job. Imagine that.
