For people who are as appalled as your agent is over the firing of FBI director James Comey, the very man who is investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, the Washington Post has written a wonderful article on the implications of the U.S. president’s anti-democratic move. It is an affront to the rule of law in a country to which the world looks for its defence and an example of good governance.
Trump’s move is that of a tin-pot dictator and makes one wonder to what depths American democracy has plunged.
Here is a segment of the Post piece:
In one of the hastily arranged damage-control interviews, deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made an especially revealing statement that underscored why so many people are worried. Asked by Tucker Carlson on Fox News how Comey’s termination will impact the Russia investigation, she replied: “I think the bigger point on that is, ‘My gosh, Tucker, when are they gonna let that go?’ It’s been going on for nearly a year. Frankly, it’s kinda getting absurd. There’s nothing there.”
“It’s time to move on,” she added. “Frankly, it’s time to focus on the things the American people care about.”
