WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has fired the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, in the latest stunning development in the Deep State battles engulfing his administration and our entire political process.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the firing to One America News Network reporter Trey Yingst, who reported the news at 5:41 PM. It appears that Yingst was the first reporter to break the news, courtesy of a retweet from former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
Jonathan Karl of ABC News reported the firing at 5:42 PM Eastern Time.

ABC News and the Associated Press also reported the firing within the next several minutes.
Comey has been overseeing the FBI’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and/or administration and the Russians. With no evidence presented thus far, Trump calls the entire investigation a “hoax.”
Comey relied on a debunked dossier from a British intel agent in order to heighten the relevance of his unsubstantiated investigation.
Comey is a well-connected Washington insider who declined to press charges against Hillary Clinton, despite massive evidence implicating Clinton for espionage against the United States during her private email scandal.
As I reported in September of last year, shortly before Comey re-opened the Clinton investigation pursuant to a new lead that emerged from an Anthony Weiner criminal sexting probe:
“A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.
These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.”
Biden White House Makes YouTube Upload of Inaugural Speech ‘Unlisted’ After Being Flooded With Dislikes
The Inaugural Address wasn’t well received.
Joe Biden’s White House staff privatized an upload of his inaugural address from the White House YouTube page, after the video was rationed with a wave of dislikes.
As of late Wednesday night, Biden’s Inaugural Address has more than 17,000 dislikes, and less than 4,000 likes. Sensing that the public wasn’t responding positively, the Biden administration made the video “unlisted” some time after its initial streaming.
In a legally questionable development, the Biden White House staff have also disabled comments on the Inaugural Address. Court rulings previously forced the Trump administration to unblock fanatic liberal reply guys on Twitter, with judges ruling that they had the right to engage with the President on the platform.
The inaugural address is accessible here.
The poor reaction may have come in part from the existing YouTube subscriber demographic of the White House channel, which was primarily composed of Trump supporters. Other uploads of Biden’s Inaugural Address on the YouTube channels of mainstream media networks have a more favorable like-to-dislike ratio.
The takedown of the video could ultimately be challenged under a 2018 court ruling establishing presidential social media accounts as public forums, with comments enabled. Biden will have to face criticism- even on his official internet presence- as President.
