The Baloney Comey Firing Excuse...

The continuing saga of the Comey firing resurfaced this week with news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller got a hold of a draft letter from Trump regarding the firing of FBI Director James Comey.  That letter was basically never released and the message that came from the administration was that Comey was fired because of his deviation from protocol in discussing the Hillary Clinton email case (or lack thereof).  What makes this excuse baloney is that while Trump claims he fired Comey for going public about Clinton, Trump wanted him to go public with a Trump defense!

While Trump hadn't come out and directly said he wanted Comey to defend his reputation publicly, Comey had stated such in his personal notes, leaks from aides pretty much said so, and Trump's stream-of-consciousness midnight tweets and ramblings pretty much verified such claims when he added that Comey told him in private that he was not being investigated.

So basically, the official excuse is nothing more than an excuse.
