“He wasn’t doing a good job” | Trump gives reason for firing FBI Director Comey

by Itunuoluwa Adebo

President Donald Trump said Wednesday he fired FBI Director James Comey “because he wasn’t doing a good job,” his first in-person comments on the matter since his decision shook Washington.

The President made the remark while speaking to pool reporters in the Oval Office shortly before Trump’s comments became public, Vice President Mike Pence praised the Comey firing on Capitol Hill, telling reporters it was the “right move at the right time” and reiterating the administration’s position that there is “no evidence of collusion between our campaign and any Russian officials.”
Trump also tweeted several times about the abrupt decision Wednesday morning, saying the move will be seen in a better light after the furious controversy dies down. At one point in a series of tweets, Trump said his dismissal of Comey, who came under withering criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, would be validated after “things calm down.”
