James Comey Learned He Was Fired From A TV News Report, Thought It Was A Joke

Tyler Durden's picture

According to the NYT's Michael Schmidt, today's termination of James Comey was not an impromptu event: the "WH and DOJ had been working on firing Comey since at least last week. Sessions had been working to come up with reasons." Still, only a handful of people got a heads up: Trump called Senators Lindsey Graham (R) and Diane Feinstein (D) before breaking the news. They are the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate committee running the Russia probe.

He did not, however, tell Comey, who according to the NYT, learned he was unemployed by hearing it on the TV.

Comey, who is three years into a 10-year term at the helm of the F.B.I., learned from news reports that he had been fired while addressing bureau employees in Los Angeles. While Mr. Comey spoke, television screens in the background began flashing the news. Shortly after, a letter was delivered to F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington.

Adding to the humiliationin his first reaction, Comey laughed, saying he thought it was a fairly funny prank. Then his staff started scurrying around in the background and told Mr. Comey that he should step into a nearby office.

Mr. Comey stopped addressing the group. He proceeded to shake hands with the employees he had been speaking to. Then he stepped into a side office, where he confirmed that he had been fired. At that point, he had not heard from the White House.

 

Mr. Comey’s day had begun in Florida, where he spoke to a group of police officers. He then flew to Los Angeles, where he was also scheduled to speak at a diversity meeting.

At the same time, Keith Schiller, the director of Oval Office operations at the White House, hand delivered a letter from Trump to Comey informing him of his firing late Tuesday afternoon. But Comey was not there to receive it.

In his letter, the president said he was dismissing Comey because it was time for a “new beginning” at the nation’s “crown jewel of law enforcement.”

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to lead the Bureau," Trump wrote.  The recipient of the letter would be on the other end of the country at that moment.

Meanwhile, in a separate NBC report, a senior FBI official said they "had no idea this was coming. They are in shock there."

They are ex-anti-Trump congress representing military industrial complex.

Trump sold out. Russia is enemy again. War will be funded with your tax dollars and your children's.

Definitely Kushner's influence.

It is sandwiched firmly between my cock and my balls as I shake back and forth with much mirth and laughter.

...so he probably thought it wasn't true.

I'm calling bullshit on this one; Comey has been full of shit on every other count, so why believe him now?

@ Ms,

I don't. Never did. Guys a Criminal accessory.

Much satisfaction knowing that guy probably won't sleep tonight.

Not long now before the Clinton "Wet Work" Minions get to him.

Comey,

Where's Anthony's Lap Tap?

What was in it James?

Pedophilia is the last gate to go through to get accepted into the satanic ruling cult. It's the threat of exposure that is the fear glue that keeps it all going. If one goes down, they all go down. Which is why there is no effort by the feral bureau of investigation to bust the pedo ring with regard to the Global Elite.

It's a Global Massive Sex Compromised Intelligence Operation ring run out of the Deep State headquartered in Israel by the ZioNeoConFascist.?

Donald Trump has been on Epstein's "Lolita Express" and has had Jeffrey on his private jet. Trump has publicly named Epstein "a very good friend" and that they have something in common "We both like our ladies on the younger side."

This "sting" is only to arrest those that are not on the inside of the much larger circle of goats. Trump is not going to put an and to this practice. he is only going to put an end to unapproved operations. The FBI collects blackmail data on all the puppets that are in positions of power. That is how they are able to keep secrets and control politicians.

This story makes me sick, because it has more to do with desensitizing people to lawless practices of privacy invasion, than it does to actually putting a dent in the much larger scale problem that Trump himself is deeply entrenched in.

Notice how none of the high level Washington politicians have been arrested, nor the ambassadors of the largest nations in the world. This whole thing is a diversion.

He should have immediately called the Russian Embassy (or the Israeli Embassy) to find out if it was true.

Abby Normal's picture

Perhaps they wanted him out of the office so they could search his desk to see if he was hiding something and also to prevent him from downloading 'insurance' files?

Mycroft Holmes IV's picture

They totally shut down his access while he was away from a terminal.

Locked out of his office - will probably have his perfonal items shipped to him.

It will be interesting to see what happens to Comey.

And Comey was pissed! He was denied the Jerry Maguire move of scooping out a few fish.

"These fish have manners. These fish have manners. In fact, they're coming with me. I'm starting a new company, and the fish will come with me. You can call me sentimental. The fish -- they're coming with me"

[grabs a fire-tailed Peruvian beauty fish with a cup and dumps the fish inside a baggie]

"Okay. If anybody else wants to come with me, this moment will be the moment of something real, and FUN, and inspiring in this god-forsaken business, and we will do it together. Who's comin' with me? Who's coming with me? Who's coming with me besides "Flipper," here?"


HRClinton's picture

The newly appointed Deputy AG Rosenstein made the determination that Comey had to go.

His boss, Sessions, agreed. As did his boss, Trump.

There you have it.

OccamsCrazor's picture

Buwhahahahahahahah ! Boo-yah !  If Comey says he had no clue this was coming, then truly he is dumber than a box of rocks.  Too funny though, that he hears it on the  6 o Clock news while in front of his minions.  

His next job will be cleaning the orange carpet for Hillary that awaits her to the entry to the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth Kansas.

He needed to be fired in a way that starts with "You have the right to remain silent..."

Don't cheer too much just yet - the current count is still zero big time crooks facing charges.
