Trump to Comey: You’re fired!


WASHINGTON – President Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey over his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

Even though he had often expressed confidence in Comey when asked about the director’s fate, President Trump has also expressed displeasure with Comey over several issues, including his handling of the investigation into any collusion by his election campaign and the Russian government.

But, the president has been especially critical of Comey for his decision not to prosecute presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign for her mishandling of classified information on her private email server.

On Tuesday, that frustration culminated in the director’s firing.

President Trump may have given a hint of what was to come when he posted a critical tweet a week ago:

“FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds! The phony Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?”

In a statement released Tuesday by the White House, President Trump said, “The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement.”

It Has Begun, Tillerson Fires Most of the 7th Floor

The Infamous 7th FloorThe infamous 7th floor

Americans were stunned to learn of the State Department rogue Shadow Government which operated in secret from the 7th floor. They were behind the corrupt handling of the Clinton documents.

CBS News announced that Rex Tillerson, the new Secretary of State, fired most of the 7th floor policy makers who so famously called themselves the “shadow government”.

Policy will be controlled by the White House, not professional diplomats, CBS stated.

CBS bemoans the loss of the shadow government’s policy-making expertise.

 In October of last year, a NY Post story reported that the coterie of State Department officials who called themselves the “shadow government” controlled the release of the Clinton emails. Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy even offered the FBI a quid pro quo for changing the classification of the Clinton emails.

Kennedy asked assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’ ” an FBI summary says. “In exchange for marking the email unclassified, State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they were presently forbidden.”

That’s a promise to help alter US policy in order to make it seem like Clinton hadn’t casually endangered national security.

It gets worse.

Raymond MaxwellRaymond Maxwell

Former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell told the House Select Committee on Benghazi that Hillary Clinton confidants were part of an operation to “separate” damaging documents before they were turned over to the Accountability Review Board investigating security lapses surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, Sharyl Attkisson reported.

Maxwell says the operation was a weekend document session that was held in the basement of the State Department’s Foggy Bottom headquarters in a room underneath the “jogger’s entrance.”

When he got to the room, he faced boxes of documents and a State Department office director whom Maxwell described as close to Clinton’s top advisers.

“She told me, ‘Ray, we are to go through these stacks and pull out anything that might put anybody in the [Near Eastern Affairs] front office or the seventh floor in a bad light,’” says Maxwell. He says “seventh floor” was State Department shorthand for then-Secretary of State Clinton and her principal advisers.

“I asked her, ‘But isn’t that unethical?’ She responded, ‘Ray, those are our orders.’ ”

Two other high-ranking State Department officials and confidants of Clinton’s entered and stayed for a brief time.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, named the two Hillary Clinton confidants who allegedly were present: One was Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s chief of staff and a former White House counsel who defended President Bill Clinton during his impeachment trial. The other, Chaffetz said, was Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan, who previously worked on Hillary Clinton’s and then Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.

Trump also fires Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement


Having said the infamous words “you’re fired” once already this evening, when President Trump relieved acting AG Sally Yates of her duties just after 9pm Eastern, and perhaps realizing just how much he missed the sound, moments ago Trump also relieved acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Daniel Ragsdale, who was replaced with Thomas Homan, who previously led ICE’s “efforts to identify, arrest, detain, and remove illegal aliens, including those who present a danger to national security or are a risk to public safety, as well as those who enter the United States illegally or otherwise undermine the integrity of our immigration laws and our border control efforts.” America Trump is currently at war with the Washington establishment, now by firing Obama appointed Daniel Ragsdale from the position as Director of Immigration and Customs enforcement.

Daniel Ragsdale was appointed in 2012 if you want to know, and since 2012 our borders have been destroyed and illegal immigration and crimes committed by illegal immigrants since 2012 have seen levels never seen before on our border with Mexico.

Obviously, President Trump understands this Obama-appointed Immigration puppet doesn’t do his job, because all you have to look at is how southern border states have dealt with illegal immigrants since 2012.

When it comes to illegal immigration into the United States, and if your in a Federal position under Trump, and don’t support his immigration policy or have done nothing to fix the problem… Expect to be fired by President Trump! These idiots thought Trump was playing around during the campaign, but after tonight President Trump has begun purging everything wrong with Washington.

Trump Fires All Obama Politically Appointed Ambassadors Effective Inauguration Day

President-elect Donald Trump has fired, effective Inauguration Day January 20, every U.S. ambassador politically appointed by President Barack Obama, according to a report published Thursday night by the New York Times.

The Times reports the State Department sent out a notice on December 23 informing the ambassadors of Trump’s order. The move sent shock waves through the diplomatic corps as some ambassadors in previous transitions had been given time to leave their post for personal convenience.

President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition staff has issued a blanket edict requiring politically appointed ambassadors to leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, according to several American diplomats familiar with the plan, breaking with decades of precedent by declining to provide even the briefest of grace periods.

The mandate — issued “without exceptions,” according to a terse State Department cable sent on Dec. 23, diplomats who saw it said — threatens to leave the United States without Senate-confirmed envoys for months in critical nations like Germany, Canada and Britain. In the past, administrations of both parties have often granted extensions on a case-by-case basis to allow a handful of ambassadors, particularly those with school-age children, to remain in place for weeks or months.

Mr. Trump, by contrast, has taken a hard line against leaving any of President Obama’s political appointees in place as he prepares to take office on Jan. 20 with a mission of dismantling many of his predecessor’s signature foreign and domestic policy achievements. “Political” ambassadors, many of them major donors who are nominated by virtue of close ties with the president, almost always leave at the end of his term; ambassadors who are career diplomats often remain in their posts.

A senior Trump transition official said there was no ill will in the move, describing it as a simple matter of ensuring that Mr. Obama’s overseas appointees leave the government on schedule, just as thousands of political aides at the White House and in federal agencies must do. The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity about internal deliberations, said the ambassadors should not be surprised about being held to a hard end date.”
