James Comey is no more.
From USA Today:
Trump’s actions to fire Comey were based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said.
“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said in a statement.
A search for a new permanent FBI director will begin immediately, Spicer said.
The firing came just after the FBI confirmed Comey provided erroneous testimony to a Senate panel about how Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin handled classified emails.
From that article:
FBI Director James Comey’s testimony that a top Hillary Clinton aide forwarded “hundreds and thousands” of emails involving her boss was wrong, according to a letter the bureau sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.Last week, Comey testified before a Senate committee that Huma Abedin made a “regular practice” of forwarding messages involving Clinton – some of which contained classified information – to her husband, former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner. As Comey explained, the top Clinton aide did this so Weiner could print them out.
But FBI officials told ProPublica, which first reported the story, that Comey misstated Abedin’s actions.
