Inside Trump’s anger and impatience — and his sudden decision to fire Comey
 

Every time FBI Director James B. Comey appeared in public, an ever-watchful President Trump grew increasingly agitated that the topic was the one that he was most desperate to avoid: Russia.

Trump had long questioned Comey’s loyalty and judgment, and was infuriated by what he viewed as the director’s lack of action in recent weeks on leaks from within the federal government. By last weekend, he had made up his mind: Comey had to go.

 

At his golf course in Bedminster, N.J., Trump groused over Comey’s latest congressional testimony, which he thought was “strange,” and grew impatient with what he viewed as his sanctimony, according to White House officials. Comey, Trump figured, was using the Russia probe to become a martyr.

 

Back at work Monday morning in Washington, Trump told Vice President Pence and several senior aides — Reince Priebus, Stephen K. Bannon and Donald McGahn, among others — that he was ready to move on Comey. First, though, he wanted to talk with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, his trusted confidant, and Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, to whom Comey reported directly. Trump summoned the two of them to the White House for a meeting, according to a person close to the White House.

 

The president already had decided to fire Comey, according to this person. But in the meeting, several White House officials said Trump gave Sessions and Rosenstein a directive: to explain in writing the case against Comey.

 

The pair quickly fulfilled the boss’s orders, and the next day Trump fired Comey — a breathtaking move that thrust a White House already accustomed to chaos into a new level of tumult, one that has legal as well as political consequences.

Rosenstein threatened to resign after the narrative emerging from the White House on Tuesday evening cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey and that the president acted only on his recommendation, said the person close to the White House, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

 

Justice Department officials declined to comment.

 

The stated rationale for Comey’s firing delivered Wednesday by principal deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was that he had committed “atrocities” in overseeing the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, hurting morale in the bureau and compromising public trust.

 

“He wasn’t doing a good job,” Trump told reporters Wednesday. “Very simple. He wasn’t doing a good job.”

Waiting until there is something definitive seems to make sense rather just running around spouting the bumper sticker du jour.

 

As to snitches - if their info is verifiable they are helpful; if not, they only confuse things.

The ones reporting Der Trumper's conspiracy to conceal his obligations to Russia have a very long history of printing the truth and protecting their sources from retaliation.

 

The ones defending Der Trumper have a consistant history of lying for political gain, going back to Watergate and beyond.

 

If the reasons given for Comey's ouster were true today, they were even more true 110 days ago, and yet nothing was done UNTIL Comey began getting serious about exposing Der Trumper's huge debt to Russian Oligarchs, Mob and Government.


Did Mr. Comey by any chance give some supporting material for your claim, or did he just tell you all about his activities?

 

Back to basics - what is the cover-up?

Speaks volumes!  So the Washington Post said so and the person who said it is anonymous.

I'll take the multiple Pulitzer Prize winning Washington Post over the TownHall website anyday of the week.  One does actual journalistic reporting.

The sad thing is the shallowness of posts totally off topic from the supposed cover-up. What is it?
