James Comey, in his capacity as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigations(FBI), shocked the political world days before last November 08, presidential Election, when he went public to disclose further investigations into additional emails connected to Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton.
The timing of the director's disclosure amid calls from then Republican nominee, Donald Trump, to jail Clinton, did not sit well with an American public about to enter an election. Clinton lost the election to Trump and history must attribute one of the reasons for her defeat to the FBI director's declaration so close to the actual vote.
Trump fired the FBI director yesterday while an investigation into the role of Russia in the 2016 United States Presidential Elections continues. Trump claimed Comey was not doing a good job.
However, media houses are revealing that in the days leading up to the director's firing, that he sought extra resources for the Russian probe. Meanwhile, on the day after the firing, Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, was to meet with Trump after meeting with the US Secretary of State in Washington, D.C.
And so another day in the era of Trump's White House has brought more dramatic events to the US Republic.
