Hewitt: Media Hysteria Over Comey

U.S. Senate

President Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey.

No, this isn’t comparable to Nixon’s infamous “Saturday Night Massacre” of Watergate fame. There are no tapes, no subpoenas for presidential documents, no resignations from the Justice Department, but instead recommendations from the Justice Department. In short, the overwrought media has toppled into hysteria again.

This is, simply, the rightful determination by the president that he no longer had confidence in James Comey, supplemented by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s recommendation that Director Comey should not have publicly discussed the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Agree or disagree with that decision by Comey not to prosecute Secretary Clinton, that kind of decision-making is not what the FBI does. Ever.

So President Trump on the advice of Rod Rosenstein and on his own gut decided it was time for James Comey to go.

Mark Davis: After Comey

Comey

Reactions to President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey are falling along predictable lines. There’s a strain of conservative comments that this was overdue, even though his late October re-opening of the Hillary Clinton e-mail case may have contributed to Trump’s win in November.

That’s the recently expressed belief of Hillary herself, but now her political allies cry foul at Comey’s dismissal. Why: With the election over, the left had only one wish for Comey’s FBI—that he would one day emerge with evidence to prop up the currently empty suspicions about a Trump-Russia connection.

But Comey was damaged goods.

An FBI Director should avoid becoming the focus of every story about what the Bureau does and does not do. Comey’s inability to do that leads to the bottom line:

He had it coming.

What the nation needs now and what President Trump should provide quickly is a new director—someone with impeccable credentials—who can get on with the business of the Bureau.
