How Comey put his interests ahead of his country’s





Powerlineblog | Paul Mirengoff

Andy McCarthy asks why President Trump fired James Comey. He concludes that Trump did so because he believed Comey intentionally misled the public into thinking Trump was under investigation by the FBI.

I think that’s probably the reason. As I have said, it seems clear that, at a minimum, Comey’s refusal publicly to say that Trump is not under investigation played a major role in the discharge decision.
It’s easy to understand why Trump would want the public to know that he isn’t under investigation. Why should a president, whose job surely is difficult enough, labor under the perception of a “cloud” that’s based on a false perception?
