He served his purpose. Just another in the long list of people used and trashed by Trumplestiltskin.

Apparently they took advantage of his "misstatements" about the Clinton emails during his congressional testimony to finally throw him under the bus.

Yep, because Comey was heading the investigation into #Russiagate. First Donnie sinks into a panicked tweetstorm yesterday over Sally Yates' testimony (which may have involved violating federal laws against witness intimidation), then he misrepresents what James Clapper actually said about evidence on collusion, then he seeks legal counsel today, before firing Comey.

If none of this screams that *someone* is getting really scared, to the peanut gallery, then we have an even more serious problem in this country than I thought.

The big question is will the new director Trump appoints be able to quash the investigation?

He's just adding to the list of people who will want to cooperate in taking him down.

Trump chooses the new director, which has to be confirmed by the senate. Only 50 votes are needed since they put the nuclear option into place.

The problem is, the decisionmakers are all going to be stooges who will push the Russia connection aside. We have only 18 more months before we can change the balance of power and get some real oversight of these agencies.

Apparently the firing has bipartisan support. Grassley and Feinstein, for starters.

Look for a new push to name a special prosecutor on the Russia investigation.

There are very strong rumors that there are 2-3 grand juries already convened and hearing evidence/testimony currently. There are also rumblings of 2 sealed warrants...whether for arrest or search is not really known, but the best guess seems to be they're search warrants.

I'm not sure how it works on a federal level...if Comey's firing will hinder those grand juries.

I don't think it can. If grand juries are hearing testimony, that means the FBI's work is basically done and the matter is in the hands of the US district attorney.

You guys, Trump gets all his information from Fox.

X-Files was on Fox.

Obviously, he's going to try to hire Skinner.

That, right there!

According to some of the news stories I've seen, Trump's official reason for firing Comey is his "mishandling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation."

Yeah, bullshit! The Clinton investigation was more than six months ago. If Trump's reason is true, Trump would have fired Comey as soon as he took office. Nope. It has everything to do with Comey's investigation of Trump's collusion with the Russians. He got too close, and he got shown the door before he could even brief his replacement on his efforts so far.

Trump needs to be impeached, like now!

Lawrence O'Donnell is telling the story that Comey was addressing some FBI employees when the TV in the back of the room broadcast the breaking news of his firing. He had no warning that it was coming.

At first, he thought it was a joke and laughed. But then he was taken into another room where he was given a letter informing him of his termination.

So, the Director of the FBI is not even given the courtesy of a face-to-face meeting before the news broke on TV.

This fucking administration is worse than a joke. It's unprofessional, sloppy, disorganized and petty. In the link Cris posted, it sounded like they were looking for excuses to fire Comey because they couldn't decide on a reason.

It's corruption on a massive scale which seems obvious to me. If you watch CNN though it's like "Oh this was such a surprise!".

It makes perfect sense that he fired him. It will also make perfect sense when he nominates some toady to take his place.
