  • But he was reluctant to move against Comey for fear that it would open him to charges of obstruction of justice.

Comey has been under fire by both Democrats and Republicans for his recent actions

According to a White House source familiar with Obama’s decision, Jarrett and the president held lengthy discussions over the past several days about the political and legal ramifications of firing the FBI director.

The president was furious with Comey for reopening the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s emails 11 days before the election, then admitting two days before the election that he couldn’t find any cause for taking action against the Democratic nominee.

But the president was reluctant to move against Comey for fear that it would open him to charges of obstruction of justice.

However, according to the White House source, Jarrett convinced the president that it was within his power to remove the FBI director for his ill-conceived and erratic interference in the presidential election.

She also argued that there would be bipartisan support in Congress for such a move against Comey, who has alienated both Democrats and Republicans

After the White House legal counsel agreed with Jarrett, Obama ordered his top advisers to draw up a plan for getting rid of the troublesome FBI director.

It has yet to be decided who will wield the hatchet—the president, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, or someone else—and exactly when Comey will be forced to go. So far, the only firm decision is that Comey will not be fired until after the election.

  1. What they haven’t realized yet….. Comey did what he had to do to make sure all the email evidence against Hillary stayed safe. Those emails are now in the FBI archives and Congress can subpoena them to hand over the evidence without going through the DoJ. Once Trump is safely ensconced in the WH….Congress can and most likely will impeach Hillary and charge her with Treason…which carries a death penalty.

    It matters not who is the FBI Director…but Trump will make sure that someone he can trust is in that position.
