REPEAT AFTER ME! The president has the absolute LEGAL AUTHORITY to fire the FBI director. There are many reasons why he should have done so. Your ignorance of the law is astounding. This new Mueller investigation has suddenly taken an awfully smelly, Demoncratic turn. This is nothing more than a coup attempt on several party’s parts. Watch what GOD will do! He got elected with divine intervention. He will still continue to try to do the job that American’s placed him there to do, in spite of all the B.S. The intelligence community has now lost all credibility. DISGRACEFUL! Learn the LAW!

Repeat after me
You cannot fire the FBI Director because they are investigating you . That is obstruction of justice . I don’t know who is advising President Trump but they are doing an awful job . If there’s nothing to discover in an investigation then why would he have to fire him ? He shouldn’t have been concerned at all , red flags

Troy: Another genius! I’m so insulted! Ha Ha! Delusional? You people are sadistic and evil. I guess you don’t like hearing the truth! Sad and pathetic to say the least!

Trump is a business man if he thought Comey was fire worthy , day one, he would have done it.
Big heart? That’s delusional.
And salary or no salary get your kids out of the White House, INAPPROPRIATE nepotism.

Shelly: Comey should have been fired the day Trump took office. I think that Trump has a kind heart and wanted to give him a chance to redeem himself after the Hillary debacle. Comey has probably been the main leaker and that is a true crime. He has disgraced the office of the F.B.I. and himself. Trump is a great man trying to do great things for the U.S.A. You democrats are the true colluders, obstruction of justice people, liars, cheats, sneaks, deceivers. It is sad and pathetic. GOD will call each and every one of you out on it. The truth will be told! Ivanka is volunteering to help her father. None of them are receiving a salary. The true evil lies in the Democratic party. Your lack of reason indicates that you may be underdeveloped. It’s such a shame!

Trump and gang may not have concluded with the Russians to put Trump in the WH, however firing someone for investigating it does not make you look innocent. Everyone should be concerned with this regardless of party. It’s bullying at minimum and obstruction of justice at worst. I’m ashamed of this President,he just is not a good man.
He might be rich but he is not successful , successful people have integrity morals and values. If you study his business practices he is not above board Many times over. And he’s cheated on every wife to marry the next . He’s not a true leader he’s just an arrogant businessman who thinks he has all the answers. This might be your kind of leader , if he is not impeached for one thing or another I highly doubt he will get a second term . We are no longer leaders of the free world .
He appointed I Vanka and Jared roles and responsibilities can you imagine if Hillary won and gave Chelsea the same liberties? Don’t be hypocrites you would be screaming and yelling about it.
Someone’s evil actions and behavior make them evil. If someone has s differing view of politics it does not make them evil. It is dangerous for us to label each other as dangerous or evil just because you don’t like their views. Be mature about it. If the do an evil deed, like murder, you can call them evil, if they don’t believe vouchers that does not make them evil.
Do not make one entire group of people your enemy it demonstrates personal underdevelopment.
Be nicer to each other

Valeria: Seriously, you are calling Donald Trump, a brilliant businessman and statesman dumb. You obviously from your post have a third grade education at the most. Clean the wax out of your ears. Comey said that Trump was NOT under investigation. I can give you a dictionary if you would like to look up the meanings of those particular words. You demoncrats are the most obnoxious, violent, idiotic, low-class scum on the planet. You are the actual fool in the equation.
June 13, 2017,2:45 pm
Trump has been very active on behalf of the American people. Just let him do his job, you haters of democracy
June 13, 2017,2:37 pm
Hell no and dumb the ass hole trump is as guilty as hell. Why are you dumb ass men with no Balls following this ass
Hole that think he is the president what a fool. I know all of your family are sorriy that some of you are a part of their famiıy. A bunch of but kissers.

Should have been, for sure, but look out: Special Counsel Mueller is a close pal of former FBI director Comey and the two of them are in it together to keep this going as long as possible and be as hard on Trump as they can. And believe me, they CAN be HARD on Trump. Unfortunately, this is going to go on for a year or more — never mind the lack of evidence that
president Trump did ANYTHING wrong (nobody had any “evidence” against Nixon in Watergate until well into Year Three of the “investigation”), so we can look forward to an ENDLESS parade of anti-Trump “witnesses” and all KINDS of crap that has NOTHING to do with collusion with Russia or anything else mentioned so far. Batten down the hatches, folks, the storm is just coming up NOW. 🙁

Firing someone for investigating you is just plain wrong. If you defend Trump for this you are choosing party over morals. That’s like firing the cop when he pulls you over, he may not write you a ticket but you fire anyway.

TOM: CNN makes up way more news than it could report if they actually did NEWS REPORTING. But if it follows you narrative then keep on being happy with your head in the sand or drinking the kool aid!! I also agree with Sharon Kay, why do you hate America so much.
I am a VETERAN and to watch what has happened and continues to go on under Obama’ leadership and the rest of progressive left agenda makes my HEART VERY SAD. To see how our countries values and moral values have been assaulted.
Why was Obama in Europe meeting with foreign leaders at the same time as President Trump was there?
Why are there so many un-American demonstrations currently.
The protesters covering faces and attacking (pro- American groups) think that their group represents American values; our American values support FREE SPEECH not depressing it with violence. Anyone covering your face at a DEMONSTRATION should be arrested on the spot. As it should be illegal to block facial identifies in pubic.

This is for Tom I have a question for you.Why do you hate America so much?? If you don’t like living in a Free Country go somewhere else .Might I remond you Freedom Is Not Free.Have you been in the service of our great country??Do you have a job?? Are you a responsible citizen?? Do you support our Constitution???? And Salute Our Flag????

CNN reports real news not trumps fake news
June 10, 2017,6:46 pm
What a joke. It shows trump is a big fat liar and manipulator. He will hopefully be impeached
June 10, 2017,6:45 pm
I think the liberals and Democrats should drop the whole thing. Why would Mueller keep on probing the Russia thing, when it has been proven by Comey himself, that Pres. Trump was not under investigation for Russia collusion.
June 10, 2017,3:55 pm
President Trump was never guilty of anything in the first place. This has all been an insane attempt to delegitimize the election and try to steal it from Americans by the media, the Never-Trumpers, and the media. This is where the REAL collusion exists. It reminds me of the story of David and Goliath. Unfortunately, for the deceptive Democrats and everyone else working to undermine Trump, they picked the wrong David. Trump is a strong, amazing leader trying to take America back from the brink. He comes back stronger with every attack. May GOD bless him, hard-working, patriotic Americans, and his beautiful family.

1. President Trump was the subject of many false press accounts Comey proved them to be false today.
Comey made it clear Trump never looked to Impede the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
3. Comey misinterpreted, misunderstands or never understood the Trump character as such he elected to maintain detailed notes because Trump was unique and didn’t act like any other President. The president didn’t ask Comey to do anything illegal, immoral, unethical or inappropriate as it related to General Michael Flynn.
4. Comey today admitted to leaking the content of his notes to a friend with the intention the contents were further released to the press. MOTIVE was to assign a special prosecutor to investigate which did occur.
5. Comey admitted leaking to the press privileged communications with the President these leaks occurred earlier than March 31, 2017.
6. Finally, Comey consistently refused to make a public statement that the President personally was not subject to an investigation even though he had personally advised the President, he did make it clear today.
7. Comey also made clear Trump was not being investigated for colluding with or attempting to obstruct the Investigation.
8. Is Comey really the type of Character we as a Nation want to run the FBI?
9. The firing was the only correct action the President could take. He proved to be part of the swamp that needed to be drained.

President Trump never was guilty of anything the false narrative promoted by progressive liberal communist democrats, the mainstream media liars and biased, false narrative promoting and lying TV personalities like Whoopi, Joy Behar, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Bill Maher, Ohpra and Jimmy Kemmel accused him of! Never was! Total make believe. Total BS!
June 9, 2017,6:21 pm
Trump was never guilty. This was fabricated by the Clinton campaign.
June 9, 2017,5:48 pm
I do not have any ill feelings about either Trump or Comey. Comey lost his job. That obviously was a part of his testimony.
June 9, 2017,5:36 pm
exonerate is too big of a word for the liberal idiots!
June 9, 2017,5:08 pm
1) The investigations are not complete.
2) He gave testimony that supports an obstruction of justice charge – trump interfering in the investigation of Flynn and interfering in the Russian investigation.
3) The investigations are not complete.
4) He confirmed that Trump is not trustworthy.
5) He confirmed that Trump does not know how government works.
6) The investigations are not complete.
Do save your Budweiser for another party.

From the first time I observed Comey in the Senate Hearings right up to yesterday’s session, I found Comey to be untrustworthy and frankly…rather creepy.
June 9, 2017,4:28 pm
Time to let it go
June 9, 2017,4:28 pm
TRUMP WAS NEVER GUILTY OF ANY THING ,EXCEPT BEING HONEST AND LOYAL TO AMERICA UNLIKE THE BARBARIAN OBAMA WHO HATED AMERICA AND WORKS TO DESTROY IT TODAY AS A CITIZEN

“Within the first eleven months, we canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president. Instead of eliminating two old regulations for every one new regulation, we have eliminated 22! We aimed for 2 for 1, and in 2017, we hit 22-1.”
“I promised we would pass a massive tax cut for the everyday, working American families who are the backbone and the heartbeat of our country…. We want to give you, the American people, a giant tax cut for Christmas. And when I say giant, I mean giant.”
