In the days before James Comey was fired as FBI director, he had requested that his agency receive a “significant increase” in resources to assist the ongoing investigation into the alleged Russian interference of the 2016 election, according to The New York Times. Comey asked for “money and personnel” last week when he met with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who happened to be the one to pen the memorandum saying Comey’s term should be terminated, according to the Times.

So far, Democrats have largely led the calls that a special prosecutor be appointed to lead the investigation, but on Wednesday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Ky., rejected requests for a special prosecutor or an independent commission, according to Politico.

As always.. you are twisting the reports even beyond what the media are saying.  The media are saying that Comey asked the 2 heads of the investigating committee for more resources.  Comey didn't ask the Deputy Attorney General for more resources. 

But.. even that is irrelevant.  The FBI director is not an elected official.  He works at the discretion of the president.  The president can fire the FBI director without giving any reasons for doing so.   Here's one reason.  Comey was a carry over from the Obama administration.. case closed.   

Lets' not forget that just one week ago, Hillary Clinton gave a speech blaming Comey for her loss in the election.   Just hours before Trump fired Comey, John Podesta was posting that Comey's comments made him feel nauseous. 

People like you would be ashamed of themselves DrWas.. if you had any shame.   

Just keep on going though.   I kind of enjoy pointing out how every one of your comments is garbage.  You are a fine representative of the typical libtard.
