Trump Tried To Justify Comey’s Firing With This Outrageous Excuse


Trump Tried To Justify Comey’s Firing With This Outrageous Excuse

On Wednesday, Donald Trump tried to justify his firing of former FBI director James Comey, saying that he “was not doing a good job.”

During a meeting at the Oval Office with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Trump made his first public remarks since firing Comey.

“He was not doing a good job,” Trump said, referring to Comey. “Very simply, he was not doing a good job.”

Trump avoided a reporter’s question about whether the new FBI director would be in charge of the bureau’s investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

This raised concern in both the Democratic party and the media, calling Comey’s firing a “constitutional crisis,” also accusing Trump of seeking to bury the FBI’s investigation into his campaigns collusion with Russian officials.

Trump also took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to defend his decision to fire Comey.

Trump told reporters he met with Kissinger to talk “about Russia and various other matters.”

“We’re talking about Syria and I think that we’re going to do very well with respect to Syria and things are happening that are really, really, really positive,” Trump said. “We’re going to stop the killing and the death.”
