Trump fires FBI Director Comey!!!

  1. Well he's done it now! The person investigating the connections to Russia and who won him the election just got the sack via television. Wonder what information Comey has on him and will he climb off his high horse now.

    Moving to the Break Room side of AN as the topic isn't related to nursing.

    Uh huh
    And we are supposed to believe that a Trump appointee will continue a vigorous investigation into the Trump/Russia matter?

    I think that Trump thinks it will or that this is a pivot move. Fact is nothing stops the investigation and he has actually maybe played the proverbial straw, camel move. It's already on record that his sons have said that he got his investment monies from Russian backers for real estate and golf courses etc. Kushner, Flynn connections to Russia is evident. The investigation continues because the fourth estate have sunk their teeth in now and most tellingly, RATS will always desert a sinking ship!

    Everyone he has surrounded himself with from Sessions to Bannon are dodgy characters and will as per character, make side deals to save themselves. I always say, Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house. And Trump lives in a glass house from the casinos with mafia investments to now Russia with real estate.

    Trump can continue to fire any US attorney or FBI investigator that gets too close. The Republican controlled congress has demonstrated they will not seriously investigate.

    I think Nixon proved that wouldn't work. Especially in today's world. Trump has rattled too many cages and not all Republicans are greedy, unethical sycophants. Their reputations are suffering and with the Obamacare debacle, I think voters will voice their discontent next year. Even an objective partisan knows by now that he's seriously bent. And, now Preet Bohara with Comey and their oversized egos, something will give soon.

    Subpeonas are being issued to associates of Mike Flynn as the investigation into Russiagate continues to move forward.

    Beginning of the end for deranged man with tiny hands and dirty associates and dirty family?

    Let's hope so.

    Tiny hands. I like that. It must drive him around the bend what people say about him which is why I think he only watches Fox where they pander to his insecurities. How does anyone make so many mistakes, even someone so clueless? Comey must really have the goods on him this time.

    Explain rationally and logically why should Hillary be prosecuted and with conclusive evidence not stupid news. Do you not think that Republicans if they had such evidence would have used it? Very much like Democrats against Trump. Comey has literally absolved Hillary from prosecution with his exhaustive investigation. Trump is ongoing because of the stupid mistakes he continues to make because he is guilty as his own sons have already stated on camera that their investment monies originates from Russian backers. That's why Preet Bohara is gone. Now re aiding the election, that is something else and that's the biggie. He is by far the most entertaining President in history!

    Who are you and why are you here? I don't believe you joined the site today just to write four sentences.

    Is Trump's situation so dire that he has to deploy Bannon's Bots to deflect the discussion to Obama and Clinton?

    FBI's role is to investigate and send findings to Grand Jury or DOJ's Office for prosecution. This guy grandstanded and was a Obama plant that forgot there was a new Sheriff in town with cojones. Gonna be a new FBI director. Hillary is practicing "Pleading The Fifth"
