Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey as his probe into ties to Russia intensify has drawn strong criticism from his own party and the Democracts.
By ousting the FBI director investigating his campaign and associates, Trump may have added more fuel to the fire he is furiously trying to contain — and he was quickly criticized by a chorus of Republicans and Democrats. “The timing of this firing was very troubling,” said Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican.
According to Politico, Trump was surprised at the reaction.
In the universe of Trump, it seems Americans don’t care about the mounting evidence he is working as a foreign agent to undermine their country.
Just after firing Comey, Trump announced a meeting with the Russian Foreign Minister, who may well be dictating to him US foreign policy behind the scenes.
In my view, Comey was far too soft on Hilary Clinton, but he has stepped up to the plate in respect to Trump.
Yes, Comey will likely go down in history as a brave patriot who averted a national disaster by his investigation into Trump and his associates.
