Evidently, you did not listen to Trump when he publicly tried to get Comey to do the same thing he had done for Hillary, which was to state that Trump was not under investigation. This was true but Comey revealed his allegiance to Clinton (obvious already to those paying close attention) by refusing to comply with Trump’s reasonable and understandable request. In short, Comey was a disloyal rat.

Comey stated Hillary was not under investigation AFTER the investigation concluded. When new facts potentially changed the answer, he said so, much to Trump’s benefit.

The investigation of the Trump administration’s potential involvement in “Russiagate” was just starting. Comey was not yet in a position to publicly state who and who might not be targets in the investigation.

But let’s make this clear. You accept that Trump fired Comey because of the investigation?
