Comey and Schumer seem to be taking the same kind delusional drugs

Trump goes after Democrats for crocodile tears and says Comey lost confidence of 'almost everyone' in Washington – as calls grow for independent probe into alleged Trump camp Russia ties

  • Donald Trump defended his firing of James Comey in a series of tweets Wednesday morning
  • He said Democrats have said 'some of the worst things' about Comey
  • He noted that some have called for his firing
  • He said Comey will be replaced by someone 'who will do a far better job'
  • The White House handed out information about Democrats trashing Comey in the past immediately after word broke of Trump's sensational firing of the FBI boss 
  • On Tuesday, Trump said 'Cryin' Chuck Schumer' was acting indignant for saying that he'd told the President that firing Comey was a 'very big mistake'
  • Trump fired FBI director James Comey in a letter that read: 'You are hereby terminated and removed from office immediately'
  • Comey found out on live TV screens in Los Angeles that he was being fired but thought it was a joke until he was briefed by his staff 
  • Deputy Attorney General  Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote formal memo saying they had no confidence in him
  • Trump used letter dismissing Comey to say: 'I greatly appreciate you informing me, in three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation' 
  • Democrats piled on by comparing Trump to Richard Nixon who fired top justice officials in the Saturday Night Massacre but Clinton aide said: 'No comment.' 
  • New acting FBI director is Andrew McCabe - and he too is caught in the toxic impact of Clinton as his politician wife got cash from a Hillary ally

President Trump fired off a series of blasts at fired FBI Director James Comey Wednesday morning, amid a growing storm over his sudden firing of the longtime lawman a day earlier and new calls for an independent Russia probe.
'Comey lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington, Republican and Democrat alike,' Trump wrote in one of a series of tweets just hours after firing the FBI boss. 'When things calm down, they will be thanking me!' Trump continued.
The president once again tried to keep the pressure on Democrats, many of whom have publicly groaned about Comey's conduct during the Clinton email investigation – but who took the president's sudden firing as a sign that the president was orchestrating a 'cover-up' of his campaign's alleged Russia ties.
