What's Next For Ex-FBI Director James Comey?

, The National Law Journal

   | 6 Comments

Citing his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, President Donald Trump on Tuesday fired FBI Director James Comey. His actions may weigh heavy on his future employment prospects, as big law firms may be wary of questions that would accompany his hiring. Still, as a prominent attorney with high-level experience in government and business, he may find a home at a law firm, as some other former FBI directors have.

    NIXON, NIXON, NIXON!!!! Time for impeachment. And YES there are so many connection of Russian and Flynn and the current POTUS. I guess Jonathan gets his new from Faux News, and ENTERTAINMENT channel. They cannot be called a news channel because of all its inaccurate news.

    Let‘s face a few facts: if Hillary had won, Comey would have been fired by her. Schumer, Pelosi and Reid all called for his termination and/or questioned his integrity as well as his ability to continue as Director. If it wasn‘t for double standards, they would not have any standards at all. So far, every person who has testified before Congress has failed to show a scintilla of evidence connecting the Russians to the Trump campaign. On the other hand, thousands of people were unmasked in violation of Federal criminal law and two players in the Obama administration have admitted to as much. My solution is Trump should call the bluff of the left. Appoint special prosecutors to look into the election and any alleged conspiracy between him and the Russians. In addition, they should re-open the Hillary email investigation as well as the unmasking of the identities of American citizens and then let the chips fall where they may. The left, of course, will never agree to that because they are not interested in the truth. They want vendettas.

    You sound like a very sad loser, perhaps living in your mom‘s basement, Top Dog. Maybe it‘s time to put down the bong, get a haircut and shave, and pull up your pants so you can find a job and become a productive citizen.

    The economy is great for those greedy corporate puppets who are in an office or those corporations that pull their strings. It is not so great for the subjugated working stock Who support them. PLEASE SUPPORT Overturning Citizens United. If these despots remain in office we will soon have regressed beyond tyrannical N. Korea or the other Authoritarian and despotic police regimes.

    If you wanted to really fire COMEY predicated upon Hillary‘s "email" investig, et.al., you would have done so immediately when becoming president as experts agree. - The world shall become more rosier when we get rid of Trump.Clearly,this shall happen sooner than later now. Not a matter of if, but when,and i can‘t wait for the glorious day. If i was COMEY, i would sharing it all, as much as i feasibly can, that is,given his prior employment. Grotesque what fraud Trump has done.Putting his own personal interest/fear, before the American public is not in any way unclear here. I await the glorious day when he is finally link to Russia and is gone,as i have no doubt it shall happen much sooner than i first assumed. Firing an FBI Director,who is criminally investigating your guys? and you makes it more crystal clear that what majority of astute prudent American people from all walks of life is thinking and know,and i can‘t wait until it all comes crashing down on Trump.

    These law and order Authoritarians make their bread and butter prosecuting pot smokers or prosecuting the homeless or other soft targets. My bet is he will continue in some fashion in continuing to promote the war on marijuana. I will just need to wait and see, Big Pharma payroll is another likely candidate. NOW If we can just fire the D.E.A. the world would be a whole lot rosier.
