    No one else has started a thread on this? Interesting.

    So today Donnie fired the FBI director who was investigating Russian hacking into the election. Some people being investigated are parts of donnie's cabinet. Very reminiscent of the Saturday Night Massacre of 1973. How much longer does Donnie got until he's impeached or forced to resign?

    Does he have the right to fire him? On what grounds? Can he appeal the decision, or sue for compensation?

    Sue for compensation, LMAO. He's gonna land soft. Real soft. Don't worry about his money situation, he's gonna be okay.

    He is an appointed official. The President has the prerogative to dismiss him.

    It's a bad sign for Donald, though.

    I don't think Trump makes it out of 2017 as President.

    I almost think just not being President is too good for Trump. I'd really like to see him do prison time. If he does go to prison I'm gonna replay the debate where he, as a Presidential candidate, threatens Hillary, another Presidential candidate, with prison if he wins. That was one of the lowest moments in modern American politics.

    Trump is disgusting.

    Well, let's see. One guy got a BJ while doing a really good job of running the country.

    The other guy is abusing his position like never seen before in order to make himself and his friends as obscenely wealthy as possible before the pitchforks come out and run him out of the country where he will spend the rest of his life living on one of his many private islands, taking dumps in his toilets made of gold and molesting the young island girls in exchange for bright, shiny, beads.

    so as someone who doesn't know the ins and outs of american politics but just finds it entertaining .. what has he done that he could be jailed for ? And what did he think Hilary had done that he could throw her in jail for ?

    It just all seems like a bloody good soap opera TV show

    I didn't want to be accused of starting another Trump thread. But, seriously, this is huge news and it will be difficult to halt a tsunami of demands to appoint a special prosecutor. Trump spokesperson on Fox News last night insisted it was time to end the Russian investigation, so this is going to be tough to pass off as anything other then an effort at coverup. Some are already calling this a Constitutional crisis. I think it will be if that special prosecutor is not appointed....

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/05/an-act-of-presidential-imperialism/526053/

    "This is bad,” said Julian Zelizer, a history professor at Princeton. “There’s no way to see it other than: this is a high point of tension and it is in some ways an act of presidential imperialism against the point man in this investigation.”

    “I don’t revere James Comey as an arbiter of neutral justice,” said David Greenberg, a professor of history at Rutgers, “But the thought of having the president’s own appointee overseeing that is just tremendously worrisome. I don’t see how you can’t conclude that a coverup is likely to be in the works. I don’t suppose how anyone could come to any other conclusion.”

    Lets go over some facts:

    #1 Only one other time has the FBI director been fired. That was under Clinton, when the FBI director came under fire for his lack of ethics, leaving Clinton with no other choice. The move was not political and in fact, his successor actually hurt Clinton politically (he helped Starr investigate Clinton/Lewinsky). Typically speaking, FBI directors serve as long as they want. J Edgar Hoover served from FDR until his death under Nixon. The goal here is to make the FBI position NON-PARTISAN. Trump's firing of Comey is exactly the opposite of that.

    #2 Trump's rationale for the firing is a complete and utter lie. He claims that he's upset over Comey's investigation over Hillary Clinton's emails. Really? Does he really expect us to buy that? Does he really expect us to believe that Trump is so outraged in Comey's smear of Clinton that he fired Comey while he was giving a speech to FBI agents in Los Angeles? Does he really expect us to believe that he now suddenly cares about Hillary Clinton and the integrity of the 2016 election? Really???

    #3 This comes exactly 1 day after former AG Sandra Yates testified that Michael Flynn, a former member of Trump's cabinet, was tainted by improper Russian relationships. She testified that they warned Trump of this but they ignored it (probably because they already knew and didn't care since Trump was in collusion already with Russia). The FBI director has made the Russia investigation his top priority. So the firing of him just as this Russian/Trump collusion is heating up is just too coincidental.

    #4 This has happened before, in Oct 1973. A special prosecutor was investigating the Nixon admin over Watergate. There were break-ins, wiretaps, bribes, and a President talking with his cabinet about using the CIA to squash the investigation of the FBI... In order to stop this investigation, Nixon fired the special prosecutor, resulting in top members of the Justice Department including his own Attorney General, to resign in protest.

    This eroded Nixon's support with the public and with congress. In today's hyper-partisan climate, it remains uncertain how devastating this will be politically for Donald. He seems to be right, he could shoot someone on 5th avenue and not lose any votes. But we shall see. Investigations will continue and FBI agents were given yesterday an even greater incentive to leak what they find to the press. Where there's smoke there's fire.

    Donald is trying to cover up something and will fire anyone who attempts to shed some light on it. His firing of Comey, who is in the middle of an investigation on trump, screams partisan. It screams obstruction of justice. Donald is rumored to be considering Giuliani and Christie as Comey's replacement. Does that really restore confidence that the FBI director will investigate crimes, without any consideration for its political implications?

    Some good resources:

    Dutch, you're dumb as ****.

    Do you not realize that it doesn't make any difference that Democrats wanted him to resign due to his actions during the election?

    Trump did not fire him for his actions during the election. Trump was fine with that. Trump just fired a guy who is investigating serious allegations against him and many members of his administration.

    Let me say it again...

    Trump just fired a guy who is investigating him and many members of his administration.

    Whatever R vs D diversions you find compelling... they are not. This can (should) be discussed with no mention of party affiliation.

    Dutch, demonstrating his utterly simplistic understanding of the world.

    Good job, Dutch. You epitomize the generation of people who's opinions are formed entirely through memes.

    Yep, Dutch is a Trump supporter.
