On Tuesday President Trump fired F.B.I. director James B. Comey for reasons, as the New York Times reports, included the handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

Although Trump has praised Comey for being at times “gutsy,” he expressed his disapproval of him in a letter dated Tuesday.

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” he wrote.

According to the New York Times, Comey was also leading a criminal investigation into Trump’s advisors who possibly colluded with the Russian government in the 2016 presidential campaign.

In the way that Trump has fired Comey has sparked comparisons to Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre,” in which Nixon removed several members of the justice department, allegedly to cover up his ties to the Watergate scandal.

Comey learned of his firing while addressing a bureau in Los Angeles. While he spoke, television screens behind him flashed the news in the background.

Shortly after, news was delivered to F.B.I. headquarters in Washington.

Comey fell under criticism in the way that he handled Hillary Clinton’s email cover-up, making the case public, which broke from a longstanding F.B.I. rule to not disclose such cases, and by opening the file again deep into the 2016 election.

Though a number of GOP senators have expressed approval of the firing, Senator McCain has taken the opportunity to express his own thoughts, which vary greatly from his fellow constituents… STORY CONTINUES ON NEXT PAGE
