Comey Firing Overdue; FBI’s McCabe Must Also Go

President Trump should have relieved FBI director James Comey of his duties on Inauguration Day. The country would have been spared more of Comey’s politically-motivated gyrations that began with his decision not to indict Hillary Clinton.

Comey and his deputy, Andrew McCabe, bet incorrectly that Hillary Clinton would be elected President.

Once the FBI director acts on the basis of politics, he must keep acting on that basis. He cannot put the genie back in the bottle and pretend to be impartial or above the fray. That is why Comey played the role of both hero and villain at various times to different political factions.

We need independent, fair and swift investigations into the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s handling of emails and Russian interference in the election.

We have brought to light several instances of Clinton Foundation “pay to play” yet no one has been prosecuted.

As much as we welcome Comey’s exit, we are deeply alarmed that Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe will serve as interim director. As we uncovered, McCabe and his wife have ties to the Clintons and their political network. McCabe is deeply conflicted and should also leave the FBI.
