Trump fires FBI director during investigation of campaign’s ties to Russia

Trump has fired the FBI’s director during an investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/comey-misstated-key-clinton-email-evidence-at-hearing-say-people-close-to-investigation/2017/05/09/074c1c7e-34bd-11e7-b373-418f6849a004_story.html

The New York Times editorial: “Mr. Comey was fired because he was leading an active investigation that could bring down a president”:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/09/opinion/donald-trumps-firing-of-james-comey.html

Congress reacts:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/05/09/comey-firing-reaction-from-members-of-congress-on-fbi-directors-dismissal/

Concerns have been raised about the future of the investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/comeys-removal-sparks-fears-about-future-of-russia-probe/2017/05/09/013d9ade-3507-11e7-b412-62beef8121f7_story.html

Politico is reporting that Trump fired Comey because he was enraged about the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia:

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/10/comey-firing-trump-russia-238192

This latest development in the Trump-Russia mess represents nothing less than a constitutional crisis. First, Trump’s campaign staff allegedly colluded with Russia to affect the outcome of the presidential election. Then, Trump publicly encouraged Russia to hack and share Clinton’s emails. Now, the president has fired the FBI director who was investigating the Trump campaign’s ties with Russia.

“This was a dark day in American history,” said legal expert Jeffrey Toobin on CNN, who predicted that Trump will now appoint one of his “stooges” to replace Comey. Trump will appoint a loyal supporter as FBI director, Toobin said, specifically to avoid investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

Toobin said Trump’s firing of the FBI director during his investigation of the Trump campaign is a “grotesque abuse of power”:

http://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2017/05/09/jeffrey-toobin-grotesque-abuse-of-power-comey-fired-tsr.cnn

Update: Trump has admitted that he fired Comey because of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-says-fbi-director-comey-told-him-three-times-he-wasnt-under-investigation-once-in-a-phone-call-initiated-by-the-president/2017/05/11/2b384c9a-3669-11e7-b4ee-434b6d506b37_story.html

Update: The FBI’s new acting director, contradicting Trump’s claims, says morale at the FBI was very high and that he had high confidence in Comey. He also said the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia will continue and pledged to notify the Senate if Trump attempts to interfere (of course, Trump has attempted to interfere by firing Comey):

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/11/politics/andrew-mccabe-hearing-senate-intelligence-committee/

Update: A U.S. senator has recommended that Comey serve as the director of the Senate’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/10/politics/king-will-push-for-comey-to-lead-senate-probe-cnntv/?iid=ob_lockedrail_bottomlist

Congress should demand, again, that a special prosecutor be selected. The prosecutor must be highly respected and independent. Toobin pointed out, however, that a special prosecutor would rely on the FBI that will be led by a loyal Trump supporter.

If the investigation is effectively blocked, we can say with certainty that our system of checks and balances has been destroyed and that the nation is without question ruled by a dictator. At that point, all Americans and the entire world should refuse to recognize Trump as president. All orders and requests by Trump should then be ignored.

House passes anti-health care bill

Millions of Americans would be left without health insurance with the Republican plan. Planned Parenthood would be defunded. The rich would receive hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts:

http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-obamacare-repeal-20170504-story.html

The Republicans’ plan is cruel and heartless:

Trump loses on funding for border wall, Pell Grant cuts with spending agreement

The bipartisan agreement would fund the federal government through September. Congressional lawmakers are expected to approve the spending plan by May 5:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/lawmakers-seal-deal-on-1t-plan-government-wide-funding-bill/2017/04/30/e9b26058-2e11-11e7-a335-fa0ae1940305_story.html

The budget agreement represents a resounding rejection of Trump’s plans to build a border wall, to slash funding for Pell Grants for college students and to deny funding to Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities.

A partial list of the agreement’s budget items:

Trump, of course, will launch a tweet storm attacking Congress and special interest groups. It’s always the fault of everyone else when he doesn’t get his way.

White House Correspondents’ Association defends press freedom at annual event

Tags

, , , , ,

You can watch the event live or later:

https://www.c-span.org/video/?426363-1/hasan-minhaj-headlines-white-house-correspondents-association-dinner

White House Correspondents’ Association:

http://www.whca.net/

“It is our job to report the facts and to hold leaders accountable,” said the association’s president, Jeff Mason, in his opening comments at the annual event. “That is who we are. We are not fake news…We are not failing news organizations. And we are not the enemy of the American people.”

Guest speaker Hasan Minhaj from Comedy Central nailed it: “Even the president is not beyond the reach of the First Amendment. But the president did not show up. Because Donald Trump does not care about free speech. The man who tweets everything that enters his head refuses to acknowledge the amendment that allows him to do it…I am proud that all of us are here tonight to defend that right, even if the man in the White House never would.”

Carl Bernstein, who exposed the Watergate scandal that led to Nixon’s resignation, also spoke at the event.

“Follow the money, but follow also the lies,” Bernstein said to the journalists at the event.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/30/business/white-house-correspondents-dinner.html

Trump was too chicken to attend the event:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/reliable-source/wp/2017/04/29/a-different-sort-of-white-house-correspondents-dinner/?hpid=hp_hp-top-table-low_whcd-ledeall-7pm%3Ahomepage%2Fstory&utm_term=.e993120d7289

Trump, called the “liar-in-chief” by Minhaj at the correspondents’ dinner, has lied 469 times in his first 100 days as president, The Washington Post reports. Trump is on a pace to tell more than 6,000 lies in his four years as president, if he lasts that long without being impeached:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/politics/trump-claims/?tid=a_inl

Trump claimed success in his first 100 days as president and bashed the news media with bizarre comments:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/29/us/politics/trump-rally-pennsylvania.html

Trump told a journalist that he thought being president would be “easier”:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/04/28/trump-now-agrees-with-the-majority-of-americans-he-wasnt-ready-to-be-president/

Trump also wants to weaken journalism’s scrutiny of his administration. He threatened, again, to change libel laws:
