Was Comey’s firing a long time coming?

Amb. John Bolton on why FBI Director James Comey was fired:

“If you read the Deputy Attorney General’s memo it makes it very clear how many times and in what significant ways Comey departed from long-established Department of Justice principles in terms of discussing the Hillary Clinton investigation.”

“It’s a sad day in Washington when something that these Democrats know is the right thing to do, and who basically thought it and many of them said it when they thought Hillary Clinton had been victimized by James Comey, turn around in a purely partisan fashion and try and make this Watergate comparison.”


Ambassador John Bolton, a diplomat and a lawyer, has spent many years in public service. He served as the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations in 2005-2006. He was Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security from 2001 to 2005. In the Reagan Administration, he was an Assistant Attorney General.
