Despite the inconsistencies on why the White House fired the FBI director, Comey on the other hand seemed to be taking things on a lighter note.

I’m not going to spend time on the decisions or the way it was executed. I hope you won’t either. It is done and I will be fine, although I will miss you and the mission deeply.”

In an article published online, Comey was seen walking around his driveway looking very carefree and smiling, as if nothing has happened to him or his career.

The White House claimed that Trump’s decision to fire Comey was based on the recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The White House was referring to a memo written by Rosenstein which pointed out that Comey has lost the support of the bureau.

However, in a photo op with Henry Kissinger, Trump said that Comey had been relieved “because he wasn’t doing a good job.” That statement lead to numerous interpretations and speculations.
