Trump Fires Comey: Are We In Constitutional Crisis Yet?
President Trump fired FBI director James Comey on Tuesday in the midst of the FBI investigation into whether Russia influenced the 2016 election. The story from the White House is that the firing has little to do with Russia, and more to do with Comey's handling of Hillary Clinton's emails. One must ask: why now?
All we know is that the president no longer believes Comey can "effectively lead the Bureau."
This is the latest in a series of actions by the Trump administration that move us closer to what many believe to be a constitutional crisis.
