Trump Fired Comey for One Reason and One Reason Only: Russia

President* Donald Trump weighed firing his FBI director for more than a week. When he finally pulled the trigger Tuesday afternoon, he didn't call James Comey. He sent his longtime private security guard to deliver the termination letter in a manila folder to FBI headquarters.

He had grown enraged by the Russia investigation, two advisers said, frustrated by his inability to control the mushrooming narrative around Russia. He repeatedly asked aides why the Russia investigation wouldn’t disappear and demanded they speak out for him. He would sometimes scream at television clips about the probe, one adviser said.
The reason Comey was fired now seems to be that he was asking for more resources for the Trump-Russian probe. So, like Major Strasser, Trump ordered Jess Sessions (in the role of Capt. Renault), to find a reason to fire Comey.

It is now time that Republicans and conservatives decide whether or not their ultimate loyalty is to their country or their party.

I think I know the answer for most of them. They lie every time that they recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

I'm kinda freaked out about the reporter getting arrested for shouting questions at Price and Conway.
