Future generations may mark today as one of the truly dark days in American history, a history that may soon take an even more ominous turn.
President Trumps sudden firing of FBI Director James Comey is a matter that should deeply concern every American, regardless of party, partisan politics or ideological leanings.
The independence of our law enforcement is at the bedrock of our democracy. That independence, already grievously shaken under the brief tenure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, is now shattered by uncertainty.
The firing of an FBI Director is always a very serious matter in normal times. But these times arent normal. Far from it. The Bureau is engaged in one of the most important and perilous investigations of this or any other presidencythe investigation of connections between the Trump election campaign and the Russian government.
The questions mount and the shadow grows darker. What were those connections? What did Mr. Trump know about them and when did he know it? How can the President explain the serious allegations against his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn? And what is President Trump hiding in this regard? Its imperative that the nationWe The Peopleget answers to those questions. It will take time, but the process must start now.
A politicized FBI is the last thing we need as we struggle through the maze of lies, concealment and ever-deepening mysteries. The last time a President fired prosecutors who were investigating him was Richard Nixon during the widespread criminal conspiracy known for short as Watergate. We all know how that turned out. In real ways, this potential scandal and coverup are much graver. We are talking about the very security of the United States and the sanctity of our republic.

Deeply concerned troll is deeply concerned.
If Hillary had won and fired Comey he would had been thrilled.

Fake but accurate assh@le speaks with fork you tongue
It’s always valuable to hear the thoughts of a disgraced political hack who pretended to be a journalist.
Dan Rather-Not-Tell-You-The-Truth, would rather not tell you the truth.
Didn’t he go away once?
Shouldn’t he go away again?
The main threat to our republic is irresponsible pressholes like Dan Liar.
Well this changes everything. /s
I’m guessing this is the output of a mid-1980s jargon generator loaded with the classic political phrases of the previous 20 years and some of the details of the last 24 hours. Almost believable but doesn’t pass the Turing Test.
“A politicized FBI is the last thing we need...”
What a piece of work Rather is. No wonder Cronkite hated this guy.
What’s Keith Olbermann saying about this?
Dan Rather....mister “Fake, but plausible”.
