CNN’s Jake Tapper reports that FBI Director James Comey was fired after he refused to pledge loyalty to Donald Trump and was ramping up the Russia investigation. Um, Trump kicked the hornet’s nest because he has started an ill-advised war with the intelligence community again….Leaks will be coming.

Congress must determine if this is true and, if it is, there must be consequences. The FBI must be independent to enforce the law. But with the current leadership — Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell — don’t expect any investigations of significance. It is imperative that we flip the House in the 2018 midterm elections. That’s assuming the so-called Trump presidency lasts that long.
