Trump Does Not Intend to Ask Comey to Resign

President Donald Trump announced in an interview with Fox Business Wednesday morning that he does not intend to ask FBI Director James Comey to resign and did not do so at the start of his administration because he wanted “to give everybody a good, fair chance.”

Trump said Comey “saved Hillary Clinton” by recommending that there be no criminal charges against her for her use of a personal email server while she was secretary of state.

“I have confidence in him. We will see what happens. You know, it’s going to be interesting,” Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. “Don’t forget, when Jim Comey came out, he saved Hillary Clinton. People don’t realize that. He saved her life. I call it ‘Comey I.’ And I joke about it a little bit.”

Comey essentially exonerated Clinton of criminal wrongdoing in a press conference and then announced in a letter to Congress that the FBI found potentially new evidence related to Clinton’s private email server. Days later, Comey announced that the new evidence did not change the FBI’s conclusion that Clinton would not face charges.

When Bartiromo asked Trump whether it was too late in his presidency to ask Comey to step down, Trump said it was not.

In March, Comey testified before Congress about the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the president’s allegation that former President Barack Obama illegally wiretapped him inside Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.

    Could it be that Trump is giving Comey just more rope to hang himself. Give it a little more time.

    • MKFlyboy

      I sure hope you’re right, but VERY LITTLE more time….the position of FBI Director is far too important to play games with.

    • Emily Johnson

      I think Comey is near the end of that rope….and will have to resign in disgrace….he is up to his neck involved in the Susan Rice scandal !! it would be a mistake to get rid of him now….when this investigation is over his name will be mud !!

      • used_to_be_a_liberal

        agreed!!!

  • Howleyesque

    President Trump I’ve supported you from the beginning… don’t make me regret that. Comey is an onerous dirt bag who has ALREADY HAD his “chance” and BLEW IT BIG TIIME! CAN THE CLOWSN and replace him with someone who WILL have a backbone and NOT “toe the line” for the likes of Swillary OR Bathhouse BARRY! IF you DO want to “drain the swamp” THIS SKUNK’S GOTTA GO!

    Drain the swamp means drain the swamp not giving the swamp dwellers more time to drag others into the swamp.

    Not one of President Trump’s best decisions. When you let the enemy stick around and have free roam of the house, there’s bound to be future trouble. Comey is in bed with hillary and bill. he gave her a pass and pised off all Americans who seek justice. Putting hillary in prison is justice not revenge. Her list of crimes fills half the FBI files. What’s this “Comey justice” that you have to prove intent. Can I use that the next time I run a red light. “Oh Officer. I had no intention of ignoring the light…” how well does that work for those of us who do not have the elite barrier of special protection. This has got to stop. the world knows these people committed crimes. It is Un American to let them roam free.

  • If President Trump were to ask Comey to resign the Democrats would wail he was quenching Comey’s investigation of Trump’s Russian connection. It is just that simple. Comey will stay in place as long as he can milk that issue.

    Too many of obutma’s loyal sycophants are still in office.. He needs to clean house ASAP.. The American people will start losing confidence in him if he doesn’t .. Comey .. is a black spot on the FBI record.. I believe he should go ASAP…

    Good fire the scum bag.

    America feels that Comey is an Obama/Socialist/Progressive mole… He has not helped our Newly Conservative Trump Administration, in any way, shape or form, while letting all Criminal Liberals, off the hook… It is the same thing as leaving former Loretta Lynch, as AG!!! Our President does not have the time to give Comey “any additional rope”… We are wasting too much time in cleaning “Obama’s Swamp Administration” pregnant with leftist, radicals, racists, and corrupt liberals. Must remember that Obama is waiting on the wings with his “illegal shadow government” to interfere with our President’s Conservative Administration…

    Cowards are well known for living in the dark and in the shadows….

    Feel the Job of Director of the FBI it is extremely important, and belongs to “a proven Conservative and Loyal President Donald Trump’s Administration supporter”!

    GOD BLESS THE INNOCENT THAT DOES NOT CONPREHEND REALITY!

    Trump is making a mistake I would fire him over the Hillary scandal

  • Mary Parry

    Not prosecuting Hillary and Obama tells the world that “people with position and money are above the law”!

    The majority of people who voted for Trump will not be happy until they are prosecuted for their crimes against the USA!

  • Ralph Eubanks

    I believe it is past time for Comey to go!

  • 4Pip

    Hillary should have been charged,she is guilty still. Pres.Trump needs to realize that Hillary is not a friend of his or of the U S. She wants power,that and money,it seems what she has must not be enough. We the people want her in prison where she belongs.Comey didn’t save her, he perverted justice,we are not to aquit the guilty.

  • juniemoon

    Well, President Trump has his reasons to keep Comey. I just don’t see it yet.

  • david goodman

    insult to Americans.all demonic-rats have committed treason
