[VIDEO] Krauthammer On Comey Firing: ‘Inexplicable’ to Do in MayPosted: May 9, 2017
It’s so amazing that I think we are only at the very beginning of the story. Here is what is so odd about it. According to the letter by the deputy attorney general, this is about something that occurred on July 5 [Comey’s recommendation to close the Clinton investigation without prosecution]. So we start out with something that is highly implausible. If that was so offensive to the Trump Administration, what you would have done is in the transition, you would have spoken with Comey and said “we are going to let you go.” That’s when a president could very easily make a decision to have a change. That not unprecedented. But to fire him summarily with no warning in the middle of May because of something that happened in July is almost inexplicable. Second, the reason ostensibly is (as you read in that latter) for doing something that you are not supposed to do, to usurp the attorney general, but second: to release all the information which was damaging to Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump’s opponent. Do we really believe Donald Trump, after all these months, decided suddenly to fire this guy because he damaged Hillary back in July? Another implausible conjecture. We are left to believe that it might have something to do with the egregious mistake that Comey made in the testimony this week.
