    The whole world is just making it all up and only the US alt-right knows what's really going on.

    Here's an article you ought to read.

    Still waiting?

    Should Comey resign, Trump would appoint his successor. Be careful what you wish for.

    Yes, and I've never argued that this behavior was appropriate. Comey's excuse for doing that was that he was getting ahead of the information being illegally leaked by obsessive Clinton haters within the ranks of the FBI.

    Holding a press conference in which he scolded Hillary Clinton while simultaneously announcing that the FBI had discovered no evidence of a prosecutable crime related to her use of a private email server was also a flagrant violation of long-standing DOJ protocol.

    Comey is a Republican and he has made some egregious mistakes as the FBI Director, but he still represents the best chance that the American public has of determining the extent to which the Trump campaign colluded with Russian intelligence to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

    See how that works, Trump is responsible for those people he selected and the job they do.
    But the left don't think the black man should have the same responsibility. They are racist on their face. Why wouldn't a black president be held just as accountable as a white one?
    Racists tend to be far more obvious than they believe themselves to be.

    You haven't read my previous posts. I suggested he resign from the investigation and have his 2nd in command take over the investigation while he stays on as head of the FBI for everything else.

    Trump and many more in the GOP are prone to not only conspiracy theories but gigantic ones. No Global warming, millions of illegal votes etc. Imagine what a collaboration those would have to entail.

    Maybe because the Obama saw a political opportunity and decided to wait for the right moment to exploit it?
