So, the truth begins to emerge.
Trump tries to demand loyalty from the head of the FBI, who refuses. The American people need to be able to hold the President to account. The FBI is one of the organisations that we the people will use to do that. It must not be personally loyal to the President, so it was only right for Comey to do so. This is a seriously incriminating action.
If we had an honest and open President (none come to mind, though), then it wouldn't matter. In the case of a sitting President that has told documented and easily verifiable lies, and who continues to do so...while at the same time confessing that he disapproved of Comey's investigation into Russia and the sacking was because of that...well...
It's interesting that Trump threatened Comey with the release of tapes of some sort. I certainly do hope that Congress forces Trump to either deny their existence under penalty of perjury, or produce them as evidence.
Perhaps the most damning of all things, is that, despite all the lies, double dealing, profiteering, nepotism, and sexual assault, the GOP stands behind the President, almost to a man. Instead of the sensible outrage and desire to get to the bottom of these issues, you have the House Investigation whose Republican chairman has thoroughly discredited, the Senate investigation that has stalled and blocked and obstructed itself at every turn, and the FBI investigation which has now been decapitated.
Just what are these GOP people thinking? WHY are they continuing to stand by a man who flouts constitution, law, tradition, taste and even simple common sense? They are hurting American "Democracy", stealing money from us taxpayers, and ruining the planet while they're at it.
All Congressman, Representatives and Senators alike, should be baying for blood at this point. Even the Russians are openly laughing at the circus of the White House.
Congratulations Trump. It's taken you less than 4 months, and the world is publicly laughing at you. There are articles saying that the US is becoming a failed state.
C'mon people. You want a Republican in the White House? Impeach Trump and leave Pence in there.
You want Democracy, sense, and stability to really help the American people? Bundle all the idiots, saboteurs and wanna-be's onto big busses and ship them out to the countryside with no phones or internet so the can't hurt anyone. Let's get adults back into politics.
