Bill O’Reilly posted the following commentary regarding President Trump’s termination of FBI Director, James Comey to Twitter this evening.
Bill O’Reilly here with a late breaking update on the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
I was in the car coming into Manhattan after I had recorded the No Spin News – which is in its entirety for Premium Members on BillOReilly.com – but this analysis about James Comey is for everyone.
So, what we have here is a very sudden letter signed by President Trump telling Comey he no longer is welcome to the run the Justice Department as the FBI chief. Now, I say run the Justice Department because he was in charge, Comey, of the investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails, allegations that some Trump campaign people consorted with Russians, and all of that kind of thing.
So, with Attorney General Sessions out of the loop, recusing himself from the Russian investigation, it was really Comey who was calling the shots.
Now, why did it happen? I don’t know.
I don’t know.
Now, you’re going to hear on the news programs speculation all after speculation, after speculation – I am not going to do that.
What I will tell you is how it is going to be used.
So, Donald Trump, the President, in the letter, puts in the sentence about Comey telling him on three separate occasions that the President, Mr. Trump was not being investigated in the Russian kerfuffle.
So, that was put in there for a reason. And the reason was to deflect any kind of criticism that Trump may be removing Comey because of that investigation.
But, it just – it lit the fuse.
So, now you are hearing all the Democrats come out and saying, oh, this is Nixonian – President Trump fired Comey because Comey is getting too close to the Russian-Trump connection, blah, blah blah, blah blah blah blah.
Now, they are saying this with no evidence at all – none. And this is what these politicians do[…]
