President Donald Trump fired controversial FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday.
The announcement was made while Comey was traveling.
Senator John McCain ran to the microphones after Comey’s firing and condemned the president’s action.
Democrats can always count on McCain to trash President Trump.
McCain released this statement:
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey:
“While the President has the legal authority to remove the Director of the FBI, I am disappointed in the President’s decision to remove James Comey from office. James Comey is a man of honor and integrity, and he has led the FBI well in extraordinary circumstances. I have long called for a special congressional committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. The president’s decision to remove the FBI Director only confirms the need and the urgency of such a committee.”
You can always count on John McCain to bash the Republican President.
Sen. McCain: Pres. Trump has authority to remove the FBI director, but "I am disappointed in the president's decision" to fire Comey.
