According to numerous media reports, the decision to fire FBI Director James Comey sprouted last week.
The New York Times reported: senior White House officials and the Justice Department worked on a case to justify Comey’s dismissal.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions played an integral role in creating the case against Comey. Immediately following the firing of Comey, Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, released a letter explaining their reasoning process.
Top Democrats demanded to know where the future of the Russian investigation is headed.

If this doesn’t make it obvious they fired James Comey to kill the Russian investigation, what does?
Trump is floundering and becoming increasingly more dictatorial in his decision making. The GOP and conservatives want Trump in there because he takes all of the attention away from them.
He is there reality TV star, and they will do everything they can to protect him.
