The way Comey discovered he was fired is almost poetic.
Makes you wonder if Trump timed it to play out this way.
According to the NYTimes, he was giving a speech to FBI employees in Los Angeles when in the background a TV flashed the news.
Thinking it was just a prank, Comey laughed at the thought.
Then his staff started scurrying around in the background and told Mr. Comey that he should step into a nearby office.
Mr. Comey stopped addressing the group. He proceeded to shake hands with the employees he had been speaking to. Then he stepped into a side office, where he confirmed that he had been fired. At that point, he had not heard from the White House.
Shortly thereafter, a letter from Mr. Trump was delivered to the F.B.I.’s headquarters, just seven blocks from the White House.
Guess he laughed a little too soon.
This is absolutely perfect and a necessary step for the Trump admin!
Mr. Comey’s day had begun in Florida, where he spoke to a group of police officers. He then flew to Los Angeles, where he was also scheduled to speak at a diversity meeting.
What happens to him from this day forward will be interesting to see, but anyone could tell Comey wasn’t going to last long in office with Trump in charge.
