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.”

  1. Comey has been a corrupt snake since the start. Glad to see this power move by Trump.

    I’m officially back on the Trump Train.

  2. It was inevitable. The only question was when, the why’s would fill a book. I would venture a guess some of the wait was so Trump could find a good replacement.

  3. Much of our current mess started with the Kennedy assassination and Bush.

    The Clinton-Bush Iran Contra drug smuggling by the CIA in Mena AK was another big move.

    They were so certain they had us in 2016 that they got lax. They assumed they had total control and when Trump won they were caught off guard. Clintons, Bushes, Obamas, intelligence agencies, congress, banks, etc. are all past due for a good cleaning.

    Trump is putting a UV filter in the swamp and the light shining in the darkness will just clean up a lot of the mess quietly and with little effort. Many of the swamp creatures will take a deep breath of oxygen and enjoy the light and conform to the new reality.

    The die-hard swamp creatures will be skimmed out and flushed down the drain.
