On Tuesday May 9th President Donald Trump made one step further in protecting our government and securing the nations law enforcement. James Comey, the seventh Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation was dismissed from his position on the grounds of political interference. Voices are buzzing and raising questions on why exactly President Trump dismissed the Director. Was it because he tried to conclude the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server system for emails while at the State Department? Was it because the director went back on his word and declared that Clinton had not acted criminally and later expressed that she was indeed “careless?” Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer states, “The only way the American people can have faith in this investigation is for it to be led by a fearless special prosecutor.” This is exactly the goal President Trump has set out to achieve, to appoint a qualified trustworthy individual to the Justice Department.
President Trump’s actions were confirmed and supported by several instrumental government officials throughout this entire process. For example Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley said Comey had lost the “public trust and confidence.” It is understood that the actions made by the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation were concerning to the general population in regards of several controversial issues. At the time in which James Comey had accused Hilary Clinton of breaking the law and preforming unethical actions, the Democrats resented his position as the Director and challenged his credibility. Now that Trump has carried through with his decision to revoke his position, the leftists have challenged his decision and began protecting the previous FBI Director. Ironic how the opinions of those can change when it works in their favor.
You must also consider that whatever evidence the director has found will not disappear just because he left office. James Comey will not excuse the investigations he has begun and throw away the leads for each. So, as an American citizen rather you are a Democrat or Republican just know that the new director will have the ability to expand the information left to him and prepare knowledge to take action. The decision to bring a new-experienced individual into the position is to guarantee that the American people are receiving credible information and can trust our law enforcement. Overall, the decision to dismiss James Comey from his position as the Director of the FBI is a step in the right direction. This new individual will be given the opportunity to express their strengths and work off of previous cases in order to provide the public with trust and confidence. We will soon have a director that can be positive in his claims and not jeopardize the reputation of any person.
