ELDER PATRIOT – Self-serving F.B.I. Director James Comey has finally been fired. 

Acting on the recommendation of Comey’s boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his Deputy Attorney General Rod Borenstein, President Trump made the long overdue decision to terminate the F.B.I. Director.

In a statement released by the White House, Trump said, “The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement.” 

Trump was forced to make this move after he received a letter from Jeff Sessions that said in part:

“It is essential that this Department of Justice clearly reaffirm its commitment to longstanding principles that ensure the integrity and fairness of federal investigations and prosecutions.  The Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Department of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department.”

Sessions concluded that, “a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI.”

After receiving Sessions’ letter, President Trump immediately informed Comey that he was fired.

The agents who worked for Comey had lost confidence in his integrity following his public manipulation of the facts both in handling the Clinton email investigation and the violation of the Espionage Act that resulted and then his refusal to let go of the investigation into a Trump-Russia connection that yielded no result and seems to become an attempt to support the Democrats’ narrative.

America deserves better than Comey and Trump will make sure we get that.
