Former FBI Director Claims His Termination Is Obstruction [Video]
Disgraced Former FBI Director James Comey has jumped back in the spotlight in an effort to come after Trump. This feels like the work of a disgruntled employee. Comey was more than happy to add his two cents after the Mueller Report.
AG Barr has already claimed that they will not be pursuing any legal action against the president based on the Mueller Report. But that is not stopping dedicated Trump haters from trying to find another way.
Comey sat down with NBC’s Lester Holt where he claimed that Trump was guilty of obstruction.
“Then there was your firing May 3rd, 2017. You come before the Senate Judiciary Committee you talk about a lot of things the Clinton email server… “But you declined to answer questions specifically about evidence of collusion at that point. A couple of days later, you’re fired,” Holt said.
“A few days after that, I sit down with President Trump,” Holt continued. “He says, ‘when I decided to just do it,’ talking about firing you, ‘I said to myself, I said you know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story.’ What did you think when you heard that?”
“I thought that’s potentially obstruction of justice and I hope somebody is going to look at that. Again the president appears to be saying, I don’t know what’s in his head, which is why I can’t reach the conclusion. What he appears to be saying is I got rid of this guy to shut down an investigation that threatened me,” Comey replied.

“Comey went on to insist that the probe was necessary, saying “there was smoke and enough smoke to justify investigating.”
“It would’ve been irresponsible not to investigate. And we don’t investigate, despite what the partisans say, to find a particular result,” Comey said. “We investigate to find out what’s true. And as best I can tell, it looks like Bob Mueller was allowed to do that and that’s a great thing.”
