Washington (eTruePolitics) – Jim Comey rehired by Trump. Has there ever been a more unlikely sentence written about American politics?
In a series of tweets today that stunned Washington, current president Donald Trump announced that former FBI director Jim Comey will immediately replace Christopher Wray as FBI director.
“We’ve had our differences,” Trump typed, “but I’ll never forget what Jim did for me in the days before the 2016 election and how he helped ME save America from Hillary Clinton who is an evil person. Now, since I am the MOST LOYAL PERSON IN THE WORLD and never forget my friends except Michael Cohen I thought I’d give Jim a shot at running the FBI again.
“Hey we have an election to win.”
Later, apparently responding to legal concerns from his staff, Trump tweeted that he had authorized Comey in his new role “TO INVESTIGATE ANYONE YOU WANT BUT ESPECIALLY HILLARY CLINTON.”
