Glenn Greenwald on Trump’s “Shocking” Firing of FBI Chief James Comey Amid Russian Probe #LatestNews


Help us get this information out there, share this article around, make people aware of what is really going on.

– President Trump has set off a political firestorm after firing FBI Director James Comey, just weeks after Comey confirmed the FBI was investigating whether Trump’s campaign collaborated with Russia to sway the 2016 election. Trump said he made the decision based on the recommendation of newly appointed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who both faulted Comey’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server. Rosenstein faulted Comey’s remarks last July, when he announced the FBI would not seek charges against Clinton. The New York Times reports Sessions had been charged with coming up with reasons to fire Comey. For more, we speak with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, co-founder of The Intercept.

  1. Really Glenn? I'm disappointed in you…..

  2. VOTE ALL the obstructionists out……

  3. in the name of morality, hypocrisy is what it is practiced.

  4. "Fire trumpp." Freudian slip there lol!

  5. this is some twisted shit

  6. Good god, Glenn is a fucking idiot. Go fuck yourself you baseless deep state conspiracy theory Assange and wikileaks loving schill

  7. Are you people too ignorant are just too indoctrinated to realize that the democratic party is destroying the our democracy. Do your research. I am done with you and i really liked you in the past. It is the blindness of people like yourselves in Democracy now that will allow corruption like Hillary,Obama, Pelosi, Schumer, etc, to destroy our economy and country. What a sad sad day to see the label liberals be applied to the like of the people on this channel. It si almost as sad as watching Bernie Stump for the globalists and sell out.
    Whether you are a democrat, republican, or independent Comey was either incompetent or just plain shielding he corruption in the Obama administration. He should have been long ago removed but it is done and now we clean up one more mess. Am I a Republican? No. Am I can Democrat? Not any more. Am I an independent? Yes. And i voted for Trump not because I thought he was perfect but to attempt at least a chance at cleaning up the disaster that the Obama Administration caused. This is not watergate this is Clintongate. Whereever she is there is drama, corruption, scandal, and death. Whenever she is being investigated or running for office you will find destroyed and missing evidence, dead whistleblowers, and destroyed countries.
    Stop with your Trump and Russia and look for just 10 minutes at the Clintons and Obamas laws and actions. They are trying to take out Trump so they will knot be discovered in their drug and human trafficking. Do a real story. Be real media. Protect your own citizens not aliens.

  8. Is it wrong that Trey Gowdy has accepted the FBI director job. He said YES to the offer.

  9. Why was the meeting in the Oval Office between Donald Trump and the Russian Foreign Minister, which only a Russian news outlet was allowed to attend, not considered to be evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia? What are the details of that meeting? What was discussed by Trump and the Russians the day after Trump fired the FBI director who was investigating Trump and the Russians in that meeting?

  10. …I see Amy still has not seen a doctor about her constant throat-clearing..get help!!!

  11. all I can remember is all the DEMS ans LIBTARDS yelling and demanding Comeys resignation or firing now that Trump does it it's a bad thing? I bet you have Trump takes away gun rights all the Liberals and Democrats will all of a sudden be pro-second Amendment pathetic

  12. This obsession with Russia makes your media outlet look like loonies. Really, get over it.

  13. I had gotten the impression, fromTrump, that Comey might feel free to act differently once Obama left office. Apparently, Comey is the deep state himself?

  14. Greenwald is very well spoken, academic and precise.

  15. Well, the firing is worrying, and hopefully Comey won't be replaced by a pro Trump stooge. Until we get the results of the whole FBI investigation into the alleged dalliance with Russia, we should never forget or give less priority to the sorts of things that the Congress is putting through, such as the repeal of Obamacare and the tax cuts given to the already rich whilst slashing so many Government programs.

  16. y every media repeat same thing

  17. A Russian probe is a cover-up for the prior administration's criminal activities, for example Clinton's private server, approval of tittanium sale to Russia, Bill's big whopping speaking fees, as well as Hillary's. Open your views. I don't care what Greenwald says….he's looking for something beyond in his searching, analytical mind instead of accepting realityl

  18. It doesn't matter how much crooked Donald tries to pervert the course of justice, he'll get nailed in the end.

  19. Is it true that President Clinton fired the FBI Director the day before Vince Foster committed suicide?

  20. Comey is fired — give his Job to Trey Gowdy !!!

  21. why are you all pretending that there is a difference between trump and hillary politics it is just the same old same old – the party out is just bickering because they are not in control anymore. in the end they are all dancing to the same tune.

  22. All political Theater and Comey firing is justify!!!

  23. "TRUMP COMMITTED OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE BY OBSTRUCTING THE INVESTIGATION OF TRUMP & HIS CAMPAIGN TEAM'S COLLUSION WITH RUSSIA IN THE HACKING OF HIS OPPONET'S E-MAILS & THE DNC-DEMOCRATC NATIONAL COMMITTEE'S COMPUTER SYSTEMS AT THE DRMOCRATIC NATIONSL COMMITTEE'S OFFICE & HIS PREDIDENTIAL OPPONET'S TWITTER ACCOUNT & DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL OPPONENT !:"

  24. The other corrupt side did it, so now its our turn, waaaawaaaawaaa. Well a third team is coming to wipe you people off the board
