Both were put in position by Obama and served at his pleasure, Comey finally received the boot for failing to come forward with the truth.
Predictably, Chuck Schumer, U.S. Senator from N.Y. grabs the microphone and the media making accusations he is incapable of substantiating.
By Tuesday evening, the shock that had spread throughout the ranks of current and former FBI officials was mixed with a growing sense of anger among the many Comey loyalists, and demands for answers as to why the director had been fired, and why now?
James Comey was one of the Albatrosses and land mines Obama had left for President Trump. Former FBI Director Comey appears to have become unstable in his position, as he began to usurp more and more power for himself; even to the point of making decisions for Obama AG.
Former FBI Director Comey appears to have become unstable in his position, as he began to usurp more and more power for himself; even to the point of making decisions for Obama AG Loretta Lynch.
Most recently, he seemed to be attempting to even commandeer the power of the United States presidency.
President Trump promised to drain the D.C. swamp and one of its chief creatures has now been given his walking papers.
Members of the Democrat Party who had previously indicated, both before and after the November 2016 election, that they would like to tar and feather Comey and ride him out of town on a rail, are now beside themselves (a dangerous place for anyone to be) with rage that he was fired for his misdeeds by President Trump.
Any sensible human might ask “Why?”
Comey had divulged that the discovered emails of the Democrat Party’s (then) patron Saint Hillary had committed acts that would be criminal for anyone but a leftist Democrat…and/or any Clinton.
However, he had done it in a way – Comey’s now infamous ‘Hillary’s-guilty-but-I’m-letting-her-go-free’ speech to the nation, that flew in the face of FBI protocol and, likely, the law of the land.
Listening to Senator Schumer (the Dem Party’s titular head) at the time of Hillary’s Emailgate, one would have thought it should have been Comey, not Hillary, who was to blame for Hillary’s sending classified information hither and yon.
So…why is this same Schumer, who had actually and previously called for Comey’s firing, now speaking of Comey as if he’s a fallen hero for the Luciferian Left’s cause?
To We-the-People who have never chosen to live under rocks – the answer is obvious.

FACT: Presidential appointees serve at the pleasure of the president, then he can fire them for . . . almost anything, really.
There need not be wrongdoing or a failure to perform official duties: It may simply be that the president prefers the services of someone else. (Source)
It could just as easily been over the fact that he failed to produce evidence that the D.N.C. was hacked. (Source)
We just have no idea why this happened.
No idea,” said one recently retired top FBI official who worked closely with Comey on many high-profile investigations.
“No one knew this was coming.
Everyone is just shocked that this happened.”

President Donald Trump weighed firing his FBI director for more than a week.
When he finally pulled the trigger Tuesday afternoon, he didn’t call James Comey.
He sent his longtime private security guard to deliver the termination letter in a manila folder to FBI headquarters.
He had grown enraged by the Russia investigation, two advisers said, frustrated by his inability to control the mushrooming narrative around Russia.
He repeatedly asked aides why the Russia investigation wouldn’t disappear and demanded they speak out for him.
The news stunned Comey, who saw news of his dismissal on TV while speaking inside the FBI office in Los Angeles.
It startled all but the uppermost ring of White House advisers, who said grumbling about Comey hadn’t dominated their own morning senior staff meetings.
Other top officials learned just before it happened and were unaware Trump was considering firing Comey.
“Nobody really knew,” one senior White House official said. “Our phones all buzzed and people said, ‘What?'”
By ousting the FBI director investigating his campaign and associates, Trump may have added more fuel to the fire he is furiously trying to contain, and he was quickly criticized by a chorus of Republicans and Democrats.
“The timing of this firing was very troubling,” said Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican.
Trump had grown angry with the Russia investigation — particularly Comey admitting in front of the Senate that the FBI was investigating his campaign and that the FBI director wouldn’t support his claims that President Barack Obama had tapped his phones in Trump Tower.
Bipartisan criticism of Comey had mounted since last summer after the director delivered a lengthy statement outlining why no charges would be brought against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server.
