In recent events, President Donald J. Trump had started to use his powers as president to fire a man that plays an important government role. The director of the FBI, James Comey was fired by Trump.

On May 9, 2017, Director James Comey, who has led the FBI for almost four years, was just recently dismissed from his role as head of the FBI. The most heard reason to the firing of Comey was that he was carrying on an investigation into alleged reports of the Russian Government helping Trump win the U.S. election. It is not known as to whether this statement is true or not. This topic has none the less raised speculations.

Reports from the White House say that Comey was fired for his unprofessional handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. One other report stated that Comey was just unable to “effectively lead the Bureau.” Comey apparently couldn’t handle the role of being the Director of the FBI, according to Trump. Trump wrote in a letter to Comey stating that “it is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.”

Supposedly, Comey thought that he was being pranked when he had gotten the news of his firing. Reports say that Comey “stepped into his side office, where he confirmed that he had been fired.”

Many lawmakers thought the timing of Comey’s firing was very coincidental with Comey’s investigation of Trumps affiliation with the Russians. But again, Trumps supposed affiliation with them is not a 100 percent known fact.

The White House is already searching for an eligible person to take Comeys spot as the next Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
