FBI Director, James Comey, has been fired by Donald Trump.
Trump, along with his associates, are under active investigation by the FBI.
"Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office," the statement read. "President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions."
Meanwhile, in other news from the Shit Show on the Potomac, Comey's assistant director, Gregory Brower, informed Congress that Comey's testimony that FBI investigators found hundreds and thousands of Clinton aide Huma Abedin's emails on Anthony Weiner's computer was not true.
“Somehow, her emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information,” Comey said, adding later, “His then-spouse Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him for him I think to print out for her so she could then deliver them to the secretary of state.”
Neither of those statements is accurate, said people close to the investigation.
Tuesday’s letter said “most of the emails found on Mr. Weiner’s laptop computer related to the Clinton investigation occurred as a result of a backup of personal electronic devices, with a small number a result of manual forwarding by Ms. Abedin to Mr. Weiner.’’
Meanwhile, Senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, said the timing of Trump's move on Comey stinks. It's time for a special prosecutor.
