Comey’s Unplanned Departure

On Tuesday, President Trump decided to fire FBI director James Comey. However, he isn’t leaving many people feeling surprised.

“The Democrats have said some of the worst things about James Comey, including the fact that he should be fired, but now they play so sad!” Trump wrote in a Twitter post after many people became angry upon finding out about the firing of Comey.

So, why did Trump even decide to fire the FBI’s director?

According to Politico’s website, Trump grew “inraged” with the FBI’s investigation upon Russia and the votes from last year’s election. This seemed to make many people angry because it seemed like Trump was hiding something that could cost him his repuation or job. 

President Trump is currently looking for somebody to fill Comey’s spot as FBI director, and the person will most likely be Republican, or share the same views as him (Trump).
