Trump fires FBI director James Comey

The members of the Senate and House were responding to Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey earlier in the day.

"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 Federal Bureau of Investigation". Former campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said that while he believed Comey had "inflicted severe damage" on the FBI, "the timing and manner of this firing suggest that it is the product of Donald Trump feeling the heat on the ongoing Russian Federation investigation and not a well thought out response to the inappropriate handling of the Clinton investigation".

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin of IL, meanwhile, said the firing "raises the critical question as to whether the FBI investigation of Russian interference in the last presidential campaign will continue and as to whether the investigation of any collusion or involvement by the Trump campaign will also be investigated by the FBI".

White House postpones meeting to decide on participation in Paris climate pact
The White House pushed off a meeting to hash out its position on the Paris climate agreement Tuesday for a second time . She did not say who was involved in discussions about the Paris agreement .

Comey had been sharply criticized by both President Trump and Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for his role in the outcome of last November's presidential election. President Bill Clinton dismissed William Sessions amid allegations of ethical lapses in 1993.

Comey said he felt compelled to tell Congress that agents would need to take the time to review those emails, especially since he had already testified that the FBI had closed its investigation.

In the decades since former FBI Director J Edgar Hoover, the controversial director who brought FBI into the modern era, law enforcement has avoided the appearance of influencing politics the way Hoover did.

With book, Ivanka Trump must walk complicated ethical line
I bet planning that weekend getaway to the Hampton's house was a logistical clusterfuck for you Ivanka, feels. A businesswoman, Ivanka is now a senior adviser in her father's administration.

But his prominent role in the 2016 presidential campaign raised questions about his judgment and impartiality. Comey's actions are still blamed among Democrats (including Clinton herself) for contributing to Trump's win.

This reason makes no sense because Trump waited more than 100 days after he was in office to fire Comey.

Comey described the incident in 2007 testimony to Congress, explaining that he believed the spy program put in place after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks was legally questionable.
