Trump Indicts Himself
The firing of James Comey as FBI Director should guarantee the appointment of a special prosecutor to look into the entire Russia-Trump nexus.
The firing certainly cements the impression that Trump has much to hide and is desperate to hide it. Even the Republican stone wall in Congress is showing pressure cracks.
The "company line" that Comey was fired because of his bungling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation just doesn't wash, not even on laundry Tuesday. It's laughable, and everybody is gleefully showing those multiple clips of Trump praising Comey for his "guts," getting in front of cameras last summer to excoriate Clinton.
We heard the news late yesterday afternoon, and a wise old political hand immediately said, "Well, that goose is cooked."
Trump lit the fire.
