COMEY FIRED!

Published

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.”

Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement

Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”

Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.

“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.

“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”

Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.

“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”

Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”

Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.

“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”

He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.

“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.

Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.

“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”

Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
