Democrats Go WILD! Conspiracies, Condemnation, and Vitriol Over Comey Firing (VIDEO)
Democrats were quick to ascribe blame to Comey when it had to do with Clinton’s losing of the Presidential election. Now that President Trump has fired him, Democrats are inversely hot to call this an “abuse of power”.
Despite this, the ball will begin rolling when it comes to breaking down the corruption in Washington, D.C. Democrats are freaking out.
Senator Ed Markey out of Massachusetts has called the firing, “disturbingly reminiscent of the Saturday Night Massacre during the Watergate scandal and the national turmoil that it caused . . . We are careening ever closer to a Constitutional crisis.” That’s a bit dramatic, Senator Markey.
Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. said that Comey “should be immediately called to testify in an open hearing about the status of the investigation into Russia and Trump associates at the time he was fired.”
Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., tweeted “the need for an independent special prosecutor is now crystal clear.”
Senator Chuck Schumer went full conspiracy theorist, fear-mongering in a press conference today following Comey’s firing:
“Given the way the President fired Director Comey, any person who he appoints to lead the Russia investigation will be concerned that he or she will meet the same fate as Director Comey if they run afoul of the administration. The American people need to have faith that an investigation as serious as this one is being conducted impartially without a shred of bias. The only way the American people can have faith in this investigation is for it to be lead by a fearless, independent special prosecutor. If Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein does not appoint an independent special prosecutor, every American will rightly suspect that the decision to fire Director Comey was part of a cover-up.”

Let’s look back at early November when Schumer said, “I do not have confidence in [Comey] any longer,” calling Comey’s decision to look into Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal “appalling”.
Democratic strategist David Axelrod commented that the firing of Comey had “the stench of coverup”, echoing Schumer’s claims:
WH sending out press coverage of Dem criticism of Comey won’t wash away the stench of coverup. This was a disastrous decision.

Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom spoke about Comey’s firing and reports that he was aware of that show Comey’s incompetence and failure as FBI Director:
“Well, I don’t know what Jim Comey’s told them, but from press reports, the deputy director, who I hope does not become the acting director, apparently, according to his reports – I guess they’re true, I’ve never heard denials of them – the deputy director told the Chief of Staff at the White House, months and months ago, quote: ‘This whole thing about Russia is a bunch of B.S.’ So, what’s going on here? I don’t know. It defies logic.”
