President Donald Trump just fired FBI Director James Comey.
Through a statement, Trump mentioned that Comey’s firing “will mark a new beginning” for the FBI. The White House announced that the hunt for a new FBI director will start right away.
Comey’s dismissal happens mere days following his testimony on Capitol Hill regarding the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s election involvement and probable ties between Russia and Trump’s campaign.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer released the following statement:
“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office. President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”
“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” President Trump stated.
