FBI director fired by Trump
    2017-May-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday fired the director of the FBI, James Comey, abruptly terminating the law enforcement official leading a wide-ranging criminal investigation into whether Trump’s advisers colluded with the Russian Government to steer the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

The stunning development in Trump’s presidency raised the specter of political interference by a sitting president into an existing investigation by the nation’s leading law enforcement agency.

It immediately ignited Democratic calls for an independent prosecutor to lead the Russia inquiry.

Trump explained the firing by citing Comey’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

Reaction in Washington was swift and fierce.

In a call with Trump, Senator Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader, told the president he was making a big mistake; publicly, Schumer called the firing a cover-up. Many Republicans assailed the president for making a rash decision that could have deep implications for their party.
