FBI Director James Comey Fired

On May 9, President Trump dismissed James Comey as director of the FBI, citing his mishandling of the FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. The story made the front pages of newspapers across the country, with headlines including the well-known Trump phrase “You’re Fired” to “Comey Canned” to “Trump Dumps Comey.”

The FBI has been investigating links between Trump’s advisers and Russia, which sparked controversy surrounding the timing of this move, as critics have condemned Comey’s firing as an attempt to interfere with the Russia probe.
