    Of course the courts have the power to block the President's orders. Did you object when they put a hold on some of President Obama's immigration orders?

    A lot will depend on how the investigation is done going forward. It's a conflict of interest for Trump to now appoint someone who could continue an investigation involving him and his campaign. It would help a lot if an independent investigation is continued.
    Trump's plan is that the investigation NOT be continued ... which is why he keeps firing those investigating him and his team.

    Also, the FBI just today issued subpoenas for evidence in the Trump-Russia investigation.

    The timing couldn't be more suspicious. Get mad, but not distracted.

    Apparently Trump didn't tell Comey he was fired directly. Comey learned of his firing while speaking to FBI agents in Los Angeles.

    If you had any doubt how horrible Trump is.

    There's always an Investigation going on.
    The deciding factor may have been his recent inaccurate statements but the administration hasn't said that.
    Which ones? the one where he said there were hundreds of thousands of e-mails on Weiner's laptop but there was only tens of thousands that she had forwarded to his e-mail but the rest were backups of her devices?
    I'm not sure what that's all about.

    And that statement about telling Trump that he's not under investigation sounds really snarky.
    It's there for a reason, it was a very short letter so there must be some huge significance to it.

    Trump finally fires James Comey

    Beware of receiving praise from this President - apparently all it takes is a letter from a Deputy Attorney General, who has been in office for 13 days, to terminate your career!

    By way of comparison - General Flynn lasted 17 days as the nation's Security Advisor after the White House had been informed that he had lied to the Vice President Pence!
