Yesterday, President Trump did what Democrats have long called for: he fired FBI Director James Comey. Of course being Democrats, they disagree with President Trump even when he does what they want. Here's a list of just a few of the past statements by Senate Democrats calling for Comey to be fired.
“I do not have confidence in him any longer,” said the New York Democrat, who has criticized as “appalling” Comey’s decision to send a letter to lawmakers 11 days before the election disclosing the bureau’s new review of e-mails potentially pertinent to the investigation of Clinton’s private server.
"Maybe he's not in the right job," Pelosi said. "I think that we have to just get through this election and just see what the casualties are along the way."The former House speaker said Comey had made a "mistake" by sending a letter to Congress about the new review of emails potentially related to Clinton's private server after not recommending prosecution earlier this summer. She alleged that he had a "double standard" given reports that Comey at other points did not want to use his agency to interfere in the election, adding that the new investigation is interfering in the race.
"I was nonjudgmental until the last 15 minutes. I no longer have that confidence in him," Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.), ranking member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, said as he left the meeting in the Capitol.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Wednesday criticized FBI Director James Comey’s “disparate” treatment of President Trump and Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election, saying Comey failed to justify his actions during a Senate hearing earlier in the day.
“Nothing excuses the disparate way he handled those,” Schiff said. "I don’t think in any way he justified both what he did and why he treated those investigations so differently.”
“Comey knew and deliberately kept this info a secret,” he said. Asked whether he believes Comey should step down over the matter, Reid replied, “Of course, yes.”
President Trump did what the Democrat leaders had been asking him to do for months. This is just another in a long line of examples that the Democrats do not want to work with the President to govern but instead are trying to undermine the government and never stopping their efforts to campaign.
