James Comey. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Tuesday that the Justice Department should consider prosecuting the former FBI director for actions that "were improper and likely could have been illegal." After listing actions or alleged by Comey that warranted a firing, Sanders continued, “The President is proud of the decision that he made. The President was 100 percent right in firing James Comey. He knew at the time that it could be bad for him politically, but he also knew and felt he had an obligation to do what was right, and do what was right for the American people, and certainly the men and women at the FBI.”What’s Worth Watching

Why waste another dime on political scapegoating? How is this unethical regime allowed to stay in power? How is this Congress allowed to stay in power? The entire lot of you need to be replaced with a functional class of representatives that actually perform the responsibilities of the United States.
POTUS should absolutely NOT waste the time and money on going after Comey, this is such a ridiculous distraction.
No ... should be the other way around... get this pig out of the WH!
Every GOP Sen and Rep should be ashamed to support prez Rump... my God... have you all lost your mind or just your scruples??? America is being disgraced daily!!
This is ridiculous. More distractions from what matters: Russian investigation.
Why waste taxpayers money on a get even scheme devised by the potus. Let's move forward and pass single payer health care for all.
NO, stop this nonsense and get to the truth of what this entire administration did or did not do with the Russian interference , just STOP 😡
Impeach the potus is a much better idea
Let's see, um, NO! Quit wasting our money!
James Comey was the right man for the job. That's why he's out.
Prosecuting Comey [for what, exactly?] would make their situation with Mueller just that much worse. It also makes it blatantly obvious that they're deceiving their base and have something to hide.
Trump is only trying to discredit Mr. Comey so his testimony can can be called into question. His lawyers have been trying to do the same with Mueller. Did Trump have the authority to fire Comey? Yes, but that doesn't make it right.
Pursue him to what gain and at whose expense. ⁉️ Clearly, Comey posed a threat of some kind to the executive leadership, so they found a way to get rid of him. Only reason to pursue Comey would be to give him a Medal of Honor for his service that is too classified to know about.
I am not in favor of investigating Comey. I am in favor of investing Trump, his family, and Bannon. Thank you for your service.
HELL NO!! That would be ONE MORE added level of ridiculousness doled out by this LOSING administration and EVERY REPUBLICAN IT WILL TAKE DOWN WITH IT!!
Don't bother with Comey. Get this pig president out of that White House!
No. Comey should NOT be prosecuted.
This is a Trump tantrum. Mueller is going to convict Trump and anything Trump does to Comey will only be seen as a personal vendetta. Congress won't let him do it and I suspect even Sessions won't go along with it.
Prosecuting Comey is absurd.
