Firing the One Who Threatens You

I have no doubt that FBI Director Comey made a mess of things last summer and fall because of his handling of the Clinton emails. It may even be that he has deserved to be fired for that.

But of this I am sure: The incredible hypocrisy involved when a Trump fires a Comey is completely unacceptable in  a democracy. Trump loved what Comey did, told the American people he loved Wiki-leaks, and generally offered strong support for the anti-Clinton bias being shown at the time. It takes immeasurable gall to pretend to care so much about justice that now, on this day, Comey must be fired. Trump ought to be brought to justice for his advocacy of injustice.

It is impossible for me to believe that Trump is not actively and crudely involved in a wise-spread coverup of his own behavior and of his predilection for anything favoring Russia. Firing Comey has nothing to do with justice and everything to do with Trump trying to save his own hide. He is an absolute fraud and an enemy of the United States of America.
