Critics on Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey

NEW YORK — From blowing a kiss of confidence to giving FBI director James Comey the boot, President Donald Trump’s 180 degree turn on Comey meant only one thing for his critics.

 “Donald Trump is hiding something from the American people, as it relates to Russia’s interference in our election,” said US Congressman Hakeem Jeffries.

In New York, the wave of resistance against the President is turning into a tsunami – a day after Trump fired the FBI chief who was leading an investigation into the alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 presidential election.

 “The president… is a dangerous con artist. He has always been a con artist. He will always be a con artist,” said Jeffries. “And now he has taken his dangerous act to the White House, where his actions threaten the very fabric of our democracy.”

“He has been the swamp. Whether it’s talking about how you’re making money and not showing your tax returns, he is the swamp. You can’t drain the swamp, if you are the swamp,”  said NY Congressman Gregory Meeks.

Democratic leaders in New York are now calling for an independent probe on Trump’s Russian connections.

 Meanwhile in Jersey City, New Jersey, Fil-Am city council president Rolando Lavarro says the idea that the president fired the FBI director simply because Comey mishandled the Clinton email probe does not make sense.

 

“It shows a great deal of arrogance, to think that you can fire the person who is investigating you,” Lavarro said. “And basically it shows a great deal of disrespect to the American public, an underestimation, I think, that the American public will see through this charade, because it is a charade…”

Lavarro adds that Comey’s firing was an alarming move that screams authoritarianism, and he wonders what will happen now to the Russian investigation?

 “They should have somebody who is deeply qualified; he should pass every scrutiny. I think should be above… anybody who gets appointed will be will have a hard time being able to say that they don’t owe the present allegiance in that regard. They gonna have to be scrutinized very heavily.”

    According from Comey,there was no evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump.Yesterday Trump interviewed with MSNBC, Trump asked Comey 3 times if he(Trump) is being investigated. Comey said NO. The Fake/Communist media made us believed, that Trump is being investigated for Collusion with Russia. The Democrat even recommended for a independent prosecutor, but today it was clear that FBI never file any case against Trump and never had any investigation.Last week saw HClinton, still crying for her defeat,blamed Comey, all Democrats hated Comey, when Trump fired Comey, it was 180 degree Comey became their hero and blame Trump.Trump-Russia is a made-up story by the Democrat for losing the election.Today Trump on counter attack signed Exec Order on voters fraud, this will end up to Voters ID. Democrat could not cheat and, illegal alien could not vote Democrat anymore.Democrat dream of NO-GOP President for 100 years is over.AG Loreta Lynch should have been HClinton nominee for SC if she won, and it should had been leftist Democrat for 100 yrs control.. .
