Sen. Rand Paul: Democrats “Should Be Thanking President Trump” For Firing James Comey

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is ecstatic with President Trump’s move to fire former FBI Director James Comey, and is calling out Democrats who bemoan Comey’s dismissal as partisan hypocrites.

“I don’t think there’s been any facts presented that anybody broke the law. … I don’t think there’s any evidence that anybody broke the law,” Paul said while appearing on a “Fox & Friends” broadcast this morning.

Democratic leaders such as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have been forced to admit publicly that all efforts to find evidence of Trump colluding with Russian interests to unduly influence last year’s Presidential election have yielded nothing substantial. This has not stopped the Democrats from crying foul after Comey’s release though.

“[Democrats] were for getting rid of Comey too, but now they’re gonna say it’s all about this Russia investigation, which hasn’t produced one iota of evidence,” Paul said. He called the talk of Russian involvement in last year’s election a “huge myth” fabricated to undermine the President.

Paul was one of Comey’s staunchest critics from the start. He was the sole Senate vote opposing Comey’s confirmation as FBI Director back in 2013, citing concerns related to drones and warrantless surveillance as the reason. Time has proven Paul’s concerns to be justified, as Comey grew to become one of the least trustworthy and most reviled bureaucrats in the entire country before being relieved of his duties.

Not everyone is as thrilled with this news as Paul. Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) are strange bedfellows on this particular issue, as both men have called for an independent investigation into Trump and Russia after Comey’s firing. Despite being given political asylum by Russia, lauded NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has expressed concerns with the possible political motivations behind the firing as well.

  1. Democrats SHOULD be thanking the President… Unless they felt confident that Comey would protect their lawlessness and cover it up… Hmm. I hope the Democrats don’t have anything to HIDE… Why else would them not support such an action by our Commander & Chief?
    The entire Democratic party needs to change their name to the Communist Party of America and get all the way out of the closet… Enough is enough. If they’re going to talk and act and promote Communist ideas and practices /Bill’s ect… Don’t hide it, embrace it so the entire country knows that they attempted a Communist takeover of America and failed because just enough Americans woke up to the fact and elected President Trump just in the nick of time to save our country (for 4yrs at least… Hopefully 8yrs and pass by this threat).
