President Donald Trump accepted the recommendation from Assistant Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to remove James Comey from his position as FBI Director. Many Democrats like Senator Chuck Schumer are asking “Why now?”
Democrats continue to reference Comey as the man leading the investigation concerning the Russians. Maybe they forgot that the FBI is an entire agency and can continue investigations without James Comey. A year after the fact, no one has any evidence of a direct connection between Donald Trump and the Russian government.
On July 5th, in a statement Comey said there was evidence of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton handling classified information but he could not prove her intent. Democrat Senators and the media say Comey’s firing resemble the famous “Saturday night massacre” by President Richard Nixon. This is where President Nixon fired Watergate special prosecutor Archibald Cox. In the show today BKP explained how there is nothing about Watergate that resembles Donald Trump firing James Comey.
We also look at the coincidence that President Bill Clinton fired FBI Director, William Sessions, on July 19th and Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster’s body was found in Fort Marcy park on July 20th.
The bottom line is President Donald Trump fired Comey because he was no longer effective and able to run the agency. “The Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Department of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department. Therefore I must recommend that you remove Director James B. Comey, Jr. and identify an experienced and qualified individual to lead the great men and women of the FBI.” – Attorney General Jeff Session
