This is it. We have reached a point of no return. There is no turning back and there is only one place to go from here.
Impeachment. That, and only that, is the acceptable next step.
By firing James Comey, Director of the FBI, Donald Trump has now cemented his place in history next to Richard Nixon. He has established a pattern of firing high-ranking law enforcement officials that pose a threat to his presidency.
He fired Sally Yates, the acting Attorney General of the United States. He fired Preet Bharara, US Attorney of the Southern District in New York. Now, he has fired the FBI Director. The FBI Director that was leading an investigation into the possibility of collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia.
Let me be clear. Donald Trump is covering his ass for the collusion of his campaign with Russia. There is no other logical explanation. The White House is trying to spin this as a result of Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s emails. That is utter and complete bullshit.
Donald Trump will now appoint a new FBI Director. That new appointee will lead the FBI’s investigation into the Trump Campaign and Russia. That new FBI Director will have no credibility and cannot in any way exonerate Donald Trump and his associates.
