President Trump just told FBI Director James Comey: You’re fired!

The official announcement broke Tuesday evening after Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a devastating letter to Trump.

According to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller, here’s what that letter said:

“Dear Mr. President,

“As Attorney General, I am committed to a high level of discipline, integrity, and the rule of law to the Department of Justice — an institution that I deeply respect.

“Based on my evaluation, and for the reasons expressed by the Deputy Attorney General in the attached memorandum, I have concluded that a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI.

“It is essential that this Department of Justice clearly reaffirm its commitment of longstanding principles that ensure the integrity and fairness of federal investigations and prosecutions.

“The Director of the FBI must be someone who follows faithfully the rules and principles of the Department of Justice and who sets the right example for our law enforcement officials and others in the Department. Therefore, I must recommend that you remove Director James B. Comey, Jr. and identify an experienced and qualified individual to lead the great men and women of the FBI.

“Sincerely, Jeff Sessions, Attorney General.”

In his own statement, Trump told Comey, “While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgement of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau."

He fired Comey, effective immediately.

Comey, an Obama-appointee, became a hero of conservatives, then liberals, then conservatives as he conducted an absolutely bewildering investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server scandal, exposing a litany on incidences where Hillary and her aides broke the law but refusing to recommend them for prosecution.
