Donald Trump fires last competent employee.
A month ago, Mr. Trump taking advantage of a presidents prerogative. Fired one of the most professional and senior bureaucrats in his administration. Mr. Comey, formerly director of the FBI had previously been too tactful to explain to the president that he is not allowed to interfere with FBI investigations. Over the weeks that followed, the progressive media, being ignorant about such matters, continued to traffic in rumors and hyperbole about the presidents apparent wrongdoing. Mr. Comey was called to testify before the House Intelligence Committee. Democrats were certain that the other shoe was about to drop, and that Mr. Trump would certainly be impeached. Mr. Comey testified in an earnest matter, accounting in great detail every interaction he had with the president. The whole display was categorically the behavior of a by-the-book style of public service. Ultimately the Democrats were disappointed to learn that Mr. Trump was not a felon, but simply a bad president.
