Trump Fires FBI Director James Comey

President Donald Trump has sensationally fired FBI Director James Comey, days after he provided false testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about classified emails from Huma Abedin found on Anthony Weiner’s computer.

Trump wrote to Comey on Tuesday afternoon saying: ‘You are hereby terminated and removed from office immediately.’

Comey, 56, was blindsided by his firing. He learned about it on live television screens he could see as he addressed agents in the Los Angeles field office, the New York Times reported.

Incredibly, he told the agents he thought it was a fairly funny prank until other members of his staff took him off stage and told him it was true, the paper said.

His motorcade was seen on a Los Angeles freeway after the firing as it made its way through slow-moving traffic on a freeway in a bizarre O.J. Simpson-like scene to a chartered Gulfstream V, which Comey boarded at Hawthorne Municipal Airport just over three hours after his termination.

The president used the firing letter to boast that Comey had told him three times he was not under investigation – a reference to allegations being touted by his opponents that he somehow colluded with the Kremlin in its bid to bring down Hillary Clinton.

The letter sent shockwaves through Washington – and within just over an hour Democrats, led by Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, were claiming the firing was a cover-up attempt over Trump’s alleged links to Russia.

Here are 10 of Comey’s biggest embarrassments at the FBI according to Grabien News:

  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.

    I can answer pretty much all of the questions in the article as to why the FBI seemed to not be doing its job. It is infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, keep in mind that Cair which is a front for the Brotherhood has their own people working in the FBI but has also infiltrated the Pentagon as well. A number of years ago Cair ordered the FBI to remove from all of its training material all references to Islam or Muslims in general saying it was insulting to Muslims. I know that one or more of the FBI trainees quit because of that happening. Now Cair is demanding the Pentagon do the same thing and they have caved to Cair and agrees to review its anti-terror training program. This article about the Pentagon came out in

    Also, Huma Abedin Hillary’s right hand’s mother belongs to the SisterHood which is part of the Muslim Brotherhood she has a brother also that may be a member I don’t know about the father. Huma handled all types of classified documents so just what would stop her from passing them along to her mother??? You begin to wonder if Hillary is a member too. President Trump needs to really start firing all of the Obama holdovers because I believe many of them may be Brotherhood members as well. Cair has offices in just about every state they also go under several names. If you don’t know just how dangerous the Brotherhood is to the welfare of the U.S. look up articles about them.
