Now lets give the rest of the Rats the Bums Rush. There’s too many leaks of top secret government documents and other info being funneled to the NYT and Others!
Official Whitehouse letter from Potus Donald Trump informing James Comey his FBI Director position is terminated immediately
Here’s why Comey was fired: He hurt the FBI’s reputation
A memorandum prepared by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein recommending Comey’s termination. It kicks off with the fact that “over the past year the FBI’s reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage. This has affected the entire Department of Justice.”
He mishandled the Clinton email investigation:
Rosenstein writes that Comey should not have given a news conference last July recommending that Clinton, who used a private email server while secretary of state, not face criminal charges. The deputy attorney general writes that Comey should have turned his findings over to federal prosecutors. He also takes issue with Comey’s decision to send a letter just days before the November election revealing newly discovered Clinton emails. “When federal agents and prosecutors quietly open a criminal investigation, we are not concealing anything; we are simply following the longstanding policy that we refrain from publicizing non-public information,” the letter states.
He broke with tradition
Rosenstein cites several attorneys general and other authorities who decried Comey’s actions as a “departure from the department’s widely respected, nonpartisan traditions.” Rosenstein writes that “we should reject the departure and return to the traditions.”
James Comey didn’t look happy after being fired from his FBI director position by Donald Trump
