I'm not sure anyone is saying he shouldn't

He should have been fired under Obama, but it would have been political fuel.

new thread time. since we talk about a lot more than just the president i gave it a bit more of a general title but if the consensus is "trump part ix" is better than someone feel free to make that instead.

There was justification to fire him months ago, but Obama would have been crucified by Trump and his voters if he had fired him for the exact same justification Trump is giving; calling it a political witch hunt and obstructionist.

This same justification existed on January 20th. It's now May 9th.

He fires him with no notice, based on a poorly written memo by the AAG that has no research or interviews beyond pulling press clippings and media quotes, which was dated the same day he was fired btw, and doesn't even have the balls to say it to his face - he does it while the Director is on the west coast, and has to learn about it from the TV reports literally coming on the screen behind him while he's readying to give a speech to young FBI agents... and finally gets the letter after word is already out from a Trump Inc employee. And he does it immediately after Comey testifies in front of Congress that there are active investigations into Russian tampering in the election, and apparently whole grand juries are discussing whether or not to issue indictments on Flynn and potentially other Trump associates.

So yea, he used an existing issue to justify removing an enemy - but an issue that existed for months without action.

This is an outrageous abuse of power.
