Huffington Post -- Donald Trump’s Story About Why He Fired FBI Director James Comey Is Already Falling Apart


James Comey
The news -- particularly of yesterday's meetings between President Donald Trump, Sergey Lavrov, Russia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Russian Envoy Sergey Kislyak -- surrounding the Comey firing is so rich with intrigue that it continually inspires more and more questions and concerns that Trump is, in fact, in cahoots with the Russian Government.

Huffington Post’s Jessica Schulberg reports:

The idea that Trump fired Comey because of how he handled the Clinton email investigation was inconsistent with the president’s previous actions. Trump has long clashed with Comey over issues unrelated to the White House’s stated reason for his ouster. He fumed over Comey’s decision to confirm in March that Trump associates were under FBI investigation for possible ties to Russian government officials. He resented Comey’s refusal to back his unsubstantiated claim that former President Barack Obama spied on him. And during the campaign, he criticized Comey’s decision to recommend no criminal charges be filed against Clinton for her use of a private email server ― the opposite of the argument Rosenstein made in the letter the White House claims was the impetus for Comey’s dismissal.


Trump never complained that Comey was too hard on Hillary Clinton until he needed a reason to fire him.
