“Comey’s firing has nothing to do with Russia”| Kellyane Conway reacts

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

Senior adviser to the President,  Kellyanne Conway said the firing of FBI Director James Comey does not have anything to do with the current ongoing investigation into Russia’s interference into the 2016 election.

On Anderson Cooper’s  “AC360”, hours after news of Comey’s dismissal broke, she said “This has nothing to do with Russia,”  and somebody must be getting $50 every time (Russia) is said on TV. … (This) has everything to do with whether the current FBI director has the President’s confidence and can faithfully execute his duties.”
 Conway’s comments come after President Donald Trump acted on recommendations from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, shocked Washington by firing former FBI Director Jamey Comey. Trump told Comey that he was “hereby terminated and removed from office, effective immediately” after Trump determined Comey is “not able to effectively lead the bureau.” Comey, who was in Los Angeles for a special FBI event, learned of his firing via  television while in a meeting.
During his campaign, Trump commended Comey for his decision to send a letter to Congress that suggested the FBI was looking into former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email server again. However, after Cooper played several clips of Trump praising Comey during the 2016 campaign, Conway said the clips were “irrelevant.”
“Here’s what happened today, the President needs confidence in his FBI director, and he didn’t have it.”
