Democrats are pushing the narrative that Trump fired him in an effort to stop the investigation into Russian ties to his campaign. Firing Comey did nothing to stop the FBI’s investigation (politically it actually heated things up), and the Congressional and Senate hearings into the matter would of course continue because they have nothing to do with the DOJ.
Democrats have been claiming non-stop that Trump was under investigation when this wasn’t true; even The New York Times got burned by reporting it. The bottom is Democrats are absolutely lying about the whole matter figuring their constituents wouldn’t know any better.
President Trump asked for feedback in writing, from senior officials who worked with James Comey and they very clearly outlined why they felt the FBI needed a fresh start with a new leader at the helm. I’m so glad he got it in writing because Democrats won’t be able to say he lied about the conversations. I got to hear from one of the men giving testimony in a separate hearing about some of the things that were included on the recommendation to remove Comey and it was very cut and dry as to why he had to go.
Democrats are barking up the wrong tree again but I don’t think they care. They’ll just mislead their constituents and when President Trump is cleared, they’ll make it sound like he unfairly got away with something.
This is how bad it has gotten in D.C. Pelosi and Schumer blatantly lie to their constituents because they know they can get away with it because liberal newspapers like: The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and San Francisco Chronicle has their backs.
By the way, I was very mad when Trump made comments after he fired James Comey about his character and how people in the FBI didn’t respect him. Not anything that he could be impeached for but unethical in my opinion. He’s not a politician which sometimes I like and sometimes I don’t. If he doesn’t learn how to play the game and be “presidential,” the Washington Political Machine will eat him alive.
