What to Watch

What Everyone Is Watching

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.”

    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.

    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.

    I am not in favor of investigating Comey. I am in favor of investing Trump, his family, and Bannon. Thank you for your service.

    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.

    Even Bannon thinks Trump made a mistake firing Comey.
