Why Donald Trump Fired The FBI Director

Trevor Noah: James Comey was fired

In the interest of balance I tried to find a balance of non Governmental opinions indicating that the Trump firing Comey was a good idea,  but Fox News aside it's pretty thin on the ground.

The Two Official Statements

I would remind everybody that the definition of Fake News is NOT: News that you personally do not agree with, just in case somebody would like to attach this trite label to this posting.

Who Wins?

I'll try to be open and since I don't live in the USA my country will not face the direct political or security consequences of this action. I am therefore impartial, unlike the majority of American Citizens living in the USA.

- Comey's  untimely revelations about Hilary Clinton and re-opening of an investigation against her hurt the Democratic campaign badly.

- Based on that he [Comey] helped Trump get elected big time, and numerous quotes/tweets from Trump himself support that meme.

- Every report I read on the manner on which this Dismissal was made,  rates the procedure as Disgraceful.  Please Google for yourself how Comey was informed.

- This is the most 'pro Trump decision ' video I could find.  According to this, Trump had no choice but to fire Comey.

- Then Quartz reported this

Let's finish with the official briefing
