Yes, clearly the director of the FBI is purely a figurehead and in no way could possibly interfere with an investigation.



The only interference he ran was keeping Hillary out of prison by overstepping his authority. That's part of the reason that he is gone now along with the traitor Yates.

The only hacking the supposed "Russian Hackers" did was to compromise the DNC servers and expose how they stole the primary from Sanders and colluded with the media. Really they did you all a favor and rather than clean house the DNC keeps it's sheep distracted with nonsense about trump and Russia stealing the election. Fortunately for the DNC, they can use any shiny object to distract their idiot base from the real issues at hand. The rest of us just laugh and wait until we can vote for Trump again.

About 4-5 months and an increasingly ugly investigation into Flynn and Trump's possible ties to Russia late to be tying reasoning back to the election. I know Trump was slow with firing Flynn despite mounting evidence he was warned against even hiring the man, but slow, quiet, deliberate reasoning doesn't quite add up coming from President Tweetus Maximus. I'm sure the Clinton e-mail connection to the reasoning totally isn't the shiny object you're looking for.

If Comey stayed and found that the Russia connection was bullshit invented by butt-hurt democrats he would have been accuse of siding with trump, just like the Clinton investigation announcements he made prior to the election. Democrats are not interested in the facts or truth, they just want to keep their base from waking up and seeing what the DNC has been doing to them for the past 20+ years.

If that's your opinion, you should probably look at both sides more critically.

Everything written by people here is their opinion.

I have looked at the 'evidence' available to the public and have determined that this is just a democrat ploy to keep trump from doing what he was elected to do.

Makes no sense to do it now if it's for the reason Trump is saying.

You mean apart from actually delivering on the promises that made him elected? He has only delivered on 3 points(if you include bombing one IS location with a MOAB as a point) and one of them required a rule change in the Senate, abandoned a lot of them and delivered half-results that are substantially sub-par on some. And calling them half-results is very mild considering it's a step back from what was there in the first place.

I'm just saying, doesn't look like Trump's going to do what he was elected to do regardless of the Russian investigation.

Comey’s credibility was tainted enough that whatever he announced at the end of the probe would have been doubted. He has always been most concerned with the politics of his own reputation, as his actions have repeatedly illustrated.

Ten reasons why Comey should've been fired a long time ago......
1. Before he bombed the Boston Marathon, the FBI interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but let him go. Russia sent the Obama Administration a second warning, but the FBI opted against investigating him again.

2. Shortly after the NSA scandal exploded in 2013, the FBI was exposed conducting its own data mining on innocent Americans; the agency, Bloomberg reported, retains that material for decades (even if no wrongdoing is found)

3. The FBI had possession of emails sent by Nidal Hasan saying he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban — but didn’t intervene, leading many critics to argue the tragedy that resulted in the death of 31 Americans at Fort Hood could have been prevented.

4. During the Obama Administration, the FBI claimed that two private jets were being used primarily for counterterrorism, when in fact they were mostly being used for Eric Holder and Robert Mueller’s business and personal travel.

5. When the FBI demanded Apple create a “backdoor” that would allow law enforcement agencies to unlock the cell phones of various suspects, the company refused, sparking a battle between the feds and America’s biggest tech company. What makes this incident indicative of Comey’s questionable management of the agency is that a) The FBI jumped the gun, as they were indeed ultimately able to crack the San Bernardino terrorist’s phone, and b) Almost every other major national security figure sided with Apple (from former CIA Director General Petraeus to former CIA Director James Woolsey to former director of the NSA, General Michael Hayden), warning that such a “crack” would inevitably wind up in the wrong hands.

6. In 2015, the FBI conducted a controversial raid on a Texas political meeting, finger printing, photographing, and seizing phones from attendees (some in the group believe in restoring Texas as an independent constitutional republic).

7. During its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material, the FBI made an unusual deal in which Clinton aides were both given immunity and allowed to destroy their laptops.

8. The father of the radical Islamist who detonated a backpack bomb in New York City in 2016 alerted the FBI to his son’s radicalization. The FBI, however, cleared Ahmad Khan Rahami after a brief interview.

9. The FBI also investigated the terrorist who killed 49 people and wounded 53 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Despite a more than 10-month investigation of Omar Mateen — during which Mateen admitting lying to agents — the FBI opted against pressing further and closed its case.

10. CBS recently reported that when two terrorists sought to kill Americans attending the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, the FBI not only had an understanding an attack was coming, but actually had an undercover agent traveling with the Islamists, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi. The FBI has refused to comment on why the agent on the scene did not intervene during the attack.

Considering the Russia connection was originally found from FBI and other intelligence investigations, the worst that would happen in the case of no direct connection between Trump and Russia would be partisan questioning of why Trump has been so inept with handling the public perception around the entire thing and why he failed to heed warnings from the likes of Obama and Yates. But instead we'll have questioning about any further interference from Trump and his cronies into the investigation, so in a way perhaps truth will come to light on the matter eventually.

On the subject of criticism of Trump's timing in firing Comey, yeah pictures of your cat have about as much relevance as memes of Democrats calling for his ouster months ago.

Could this be one of the reasons people had no faith in comedy? The CIA who is in charge of foreign intelligence could find nothing on Trump.

Any number of reasons could be the reasons for firing Comey. Listing an ongoing investigation as one of them doesn't seem like a terribly wise move. But hey, Tweetus Maximus saw fit to add in his own letter that Comey had assured him 3 times he wasn't under investigation. I'm sure this was in no way a hamfisted attempt to derail the investigation right as it was heating up with congressional hearings and subpoenas.

CIA wouldn't be the ones leading the investigation that would be the FBI which is leading the investigation and they don't normally talk about what they do or don't have until warrants start dropping. There are currently two sealed warrants out of one of the two Grand Juries that are currently being run out of the Eastern District of Virginia, I expect more in the coming days.

Also throwing shade on a subject is a time honored method of putting the subject of an investigation at ease so they will make more mistakes. So saying nope nothing there isn't uncommon to hear from people in the know when there is an ongoing investigation. This of course changes when warrants start dropping as i stated.

No Trump fired Comey over Russia no matter how you attempt to justify it with his words. With Comey coming to the Rosenstein asking for more money to expand the investigation it is pretty clear Trump panicked and did this in a attempt to stop the investigation. This action of course will not have the desired effect and will end up speeding things up just like it did when Nixon fired Cox during Watergate.

If Trump didn't like Comey's treatment of Hillary why didn't he fire Comey day one which is when he should have fired him. As John Dean stated last night when asked if it looks like a cover up it is a cover up. Dean for you kids was Nixon's White House Counsel so he knows a thing or two about cover ups and what happens when the President is lying his ass off to do so.
