Two Simple Answers to the Timing of the Comey Firing

No 1: The first is a simple equation of process, doing things by the book, for which Donald Trump would have been double-damned had he violated in the manner of how, and when he fired FBI Director James Comey.

In two days, I’ve listened to and read at least 50,000 words trying to explain politically what can be easily explained legally in a couple of hundred, and politically in less than fifty.

Contrary to the general knowledge of citizens, James Comey’s chain of command goes through the Deputy Attorney General, who the FBI Director actually answers directly to, who answers to the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who in turn answers to the President.

Until late April, there was no Trump-appointed Deputy Attorney General for Comey to report to, Dana Boente being the acting Deputy AG, who replaced the Democrat deep state embed, Sally Yates, who was fired by her new boss, Donald Trump, until Rod Rosenstein could be sworn in about 20 days ago to take the seat permanently.

One of Rosenstein’s first official acts was to recommend to his boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, with a lengthy list of justifications, that Comey be dismissed. Sessions, in turn, with his own letter, passed that recommendation onto the President, who acted on it immediately.

Most say it was three months too late, but I’ve just explained why, crossing all the “t’s”, dotting all the “i’s”.

Comey’s firing was neatly wrapped and tied in a legally perfect bundle, the FBI director fired by a man the Democrats praised to high heaven only three weeks ago as they confirmed his appointment, and his dismissal of a man they universally condemned for having cost their candidate the election.

No. 2: Knowing how quickly the Democrats would change their tune, then, the second answer is also easy to understand.

The sound of stuck pigs squealing is universally appreciated and enjoyed, even by the random passer-by, who has had to put up with the daily stench of their sty as its aroma had wafted over the American landscape the past several years, once it is generally believed that the swine crib is being cleaned out.
