President Donald Trump stunned Washington D.C. this week by firing the Director of the FBI, James Comey. The move comes as the Trump administration face increasing scrutiny over their alleged collusion with Russian intelligence, with many Democrats now calling for an independent prosecutor to continue the investigation that was being headed by Comey.
The sudden dismissal of Comey has many now suspecting an attempted cover-up by the Trump team. It harkens back to the Watergate scandal when President Richard Nixon ordered the dismissal of the independent special prosector, Archibald Cox, who was investigating Nixon’s supposed abuses of power.
In less time than it takes to listen to a song on the radio, I clue you up on what Comey’s dismissal means for the United States, and whether it could spell a premature end to Trump’s Presidency.
