This is a big deal.
Donald Trump has fired the FBI Director, James Comey.
Comey, of course, was spearheading an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign and associates colluded with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election.
Even more troubling, Donald Trump directed his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who also has had questionable Russia ties, to do the firing.
In the days ahead, I’ll be watching very closely to see how Congressman Dana Rohrabacher reacts. Will he hold the Trump White House accountable? Or will “Putin’s favorite congressman” continue to duck, deny, and deflect?
Stay tuned. We are in uncharted waters. I’ll keep you posted.
