May 9, 2017 Trump Fires FBI Director James Comey

President Trump fires FBI Director James Comey, effective immediately.  The Trump Administration’s official reason for the firing is Comey’s conduct during the FBI’s investigation into Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while at the State Department, which ended without charges.  Just days before he was fired, Comey had requested the Department of Justice for “a significant increase in money and personnel for the bureau’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election.”
