Trump Sacked FBI Director Comey And People Have Mixed Reactions

FBI Director James Comey is the latest casualty of the Trump administration. Under the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump terminated and removed Comey from office on Tuesday. The move has many concerned, because Comey was overseeing an investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 elections and possible ties to the Trump campaign. 

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in his memorandum to Sessions that the decision was made because of Comey’s announcement that the FBI was not recommending any charges against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton after reopening her email investigation back in July 2016. It read in part:

“The Director was wrong to usurp the Attorney General’s authority on July 5, 2016, and announce his conclusion that the case should be closed without prosecution. It is not the function of the Director to make such an announcement. At most, the Director should have said the FBI had completed its investigation and presented its findings to federal prosecutors.” 

President Donald Trump took to Twitter last week to say that he believed Clinton was given a “free pass.”

As you can imagine, Twitter had mixed feelings about the decision. Comey made enemies on all sides after he reopened Clinton’s email investigation and then close it within days, recommending that no charges be pursued. But many opponents of President Trump believe that the firing may have something to do with Comey’s Russia investigation.

Let’s see what happens in coming days.

Luckily, this was Twitter’s time to shine. So, here are the tweet reactions you’ve been waiting for:
