    I am kind of surprised at the firing though. Maybe Trump wants someone who will spend less time on useless investigations like the Russian bullshit and will look for ways to charge Hillary with a crime after all.
    From WTOP radio on my way in. Seems like he was grossly incorrect about the number of classified e-mails forwarded by Clinton's Aide to her husband. That is what it sounded like on the radio, I haven't had a chance to read anything on it yet.
    No, I am not Drauz in game.

    Yes, for legit reasons of FBI director sessions STEALING from the government and who was being investigated for YEARS....NOT out of the blue, cya!

    So, unless Comey was caught red-handed last night trying to cross the Mexican border with 50 kilos of coke and a dead tijuana hooker in the trunk of his car... most likely this is NOT about Comey.

    It wasn't out of the blue. He made erroneous statements to a congressional panel.

    The President just fired someone investigating him. He did it, in part, on the recommendation of someone else potentially being investigated.

    This has happened exactly one other time. Nixon.

    If you can't see the problem here, you're selling out your country.
    Don't normalize this. This is not what happens in healthy democracies.

    Really? J edgar hoover dressed up as a woman in a brutally conservative period of US history and he's still remembered as a legendary FBI director and you think POTUS should give a shit (to the point of dismissal) because he said 671,100 emails when it was actually 671,200 emails.

    The fact that none of them contained classified materials when he said that they did is a pretty big distinction. As far as J Edgar's crossdressing, not only did nobody know about it until long after, but I figured you'd see him as a hero for that.

    You're being willfully obtuse.

    Stop.

    Presidents cannot be allowed to fire the people investigating them. This isn't okay. This is what Dictators do.

    No, directors don't investigate shit. They are the Administrative heads of the FBI and serve as the figure head. Stop being ignorant about the structure of the FBI and go read a little. The Director is almost always appointed from OUTSIDE the FBI to serve a 10 year term, until resignation of dismissal. the DEPUTY Director comes from within the FBI and is incharge of operations, which is Investigations. Yes, they report to the Director, but he isn't leading the investigation of shit. But hey, I'm sure you're going to link some retarded news article that says he led investigations. Probably also call DevGru SEAL team 6, because they don't know wtf they are talking about.
