James Comey Takes Unemployment Easy, Goes on Vacation
Last Tuesday, James B. Comey, director of the FBI, was fired by the President Donald J. Trump. According to the White House, Comey was fired because he failed to handle the investigation of Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server properly.
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. In a letter he wrote to his colleagues at the bureau, he said that he has “long believed that a president can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or no reason at all. 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.
Later on, the deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said that the real reason for Comey’s dismissal was the “atrocities” he had committed against the chain of command when he spoke of not mentioning his findings and what he would be saying on July 5 regarding the Clinton case to Loretta Lynch, the attorney general at the time.
