Comey's testimony on Clinton emails 'inaccurate.' He has been fired.

Wow. Now I presume Trump gets to appoint the next person (who will be in charge of the ongoing investigation into Trump ties to Russia.)

Like I said, Wow.

Likely the intent was to kill the investigation as it may be really embarrassing to Trump & friends.

Trump fired Comey on the advice of J Sessions, who recused himself from Russia-focused investigations because he lied under oath about his own conversations with Russian officials. Comey can still be called to testify. Interesting times.

No, Douche. It was on the advice of incoming Deputy Atty Gen who is Comey's boss. Once again you don't have clue.

Do you get tired of being an IDIOT???

Even Eric Holder was cited as supporting this decision.

You idiot.

He's gone and Trump will appoint an insider who will walk the line.

Like in 1993 when Bill Clinton (is a rapist) fired FBI Director William Sessions because he was "unable to effectively lead"?

It is completely reasonable to be critical of Comey's past actions pertaining to the email non-scandal yet still be suspicious of his firing.

Nixon pulled the same shenanigans during the Watergate scandal. The thing is that both Nixon and Clinton had something to hide. So what is Donald trying to hide?

It's reasonable for Democrats to call for Comey to be fired in October yet question his during now? That's funny.

The reason for the firing is the real question! Trying to hide Trump's ties to Putin is possibly the reason for the firing. Trump loved it when the email thing was going on but it was getting to hot for him with the Trump's Russian ties investigation.

Comey was fired shortly after 9 subpoenas were issued through the FBI investigation in Alexandria, Virginia, and shortly after Comey requested more money for the investigation. Trump then says he fired Comey for actions that occurred 8 months ago, and for which both he and Sessions previously praised Comey, and you all eat it up without any question. Word to the wise -- this is not going to end well.

No. It is unreasonable to fire the FBI Director, which is a nonpartisan position, for partisan reasons. The fact that everyone has a problem with him means he is doing his job. There is a reason the position is appointed for a 10-year term--to avoid this very problem.

Plus, your logic is flawed. Wouldn't it be just as "funny" that R's were against the firing then and in favor of it now? Moreover, isn't it "funny" that the R's were against the firing in October, but yet are somehow now in favor of firing FOR THE VERY SAME ACTS THEY WERE AGAINST FIRING HIM IN OCTOBER! If you are looking for partisan hypocrisy, that is where it is.

This isn't right. Clinton did not fire Sessions because he was investigating Clinton. Clinton fired Sessions because Sessions was engaged in severely unethical behavior and wouldn't step down. Here is how the LA Times reported it at the time it happened:

"The Justice Department report found, among other things, that Sessions had engaged 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."

Trump's action is unprecedented, but very similar to Nixon's firing the special prosecutor investigating Watergate.

You seem to be unable to comprehend anything other than absolutes...so I'll slow it down a bit:

October: 11 days before the election, FBI director Comey breaks with long-standing procedure of not talking about ongoing investigations and takes it upon himself to inject controversy into the election. Most people with a pulse will admit that this hurt Hillary even though no wrongdoing was uncovered.

Democrats: Fire Comey!
Conservatards: Woohoo! Screw Hillary! Comey just doing his job!

May 9: While investigating the sitting president and affiliates, Comey is fired.

Democrats: So now Comeys behavior during email-gate was out of line and he has to be fired? Coincidentally just as subpoenas are coming out? Seems fishy.

Conservatards: Oh my god, liberals are never happy! Thought you wanted him fired!

I find your inability to comprehend which side of this exchange is the dumbass to be funny.

Didn't you hear? Republicans aren't unethical, that's fake news.
Seriously though thanks for the clarification.
