For a while there it seemed as though FBI Director James Comey couldn’t do anything right. First he recommended that Hillary Clinton slide immediately after reciting a laundry list of crimes she’d committed, but after a change of heart, he intervened at the last moment and handed the election to Donald Trump in “pretty obvious” fashion.
People who wanted Comey fired a few weeks ago are now outraged that Comey was fired.

Democrats have literally accused Comey of siding with Putin to throw the election. Are they going to retract all that now?
— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) May 9, 2017
Come on people–if anyone should have been fired six times in the past 12 months it's Comey, who did literally everything wrong

With that track record, who suspected that Comey was actually the very glue holding together our fragile country? His firing Tuesday by President Trump has plunged the nation into a full-fledged constitutional crisis, according to Sen. Brian Schatz of Hawaii.
Lots of justified confusion and outrage. We need to be prepared to come back together, regardless of party, and take our democracy back.

We are in a full-fledged constitutional crisis.

A lot of Americans have never been in a full-fledged constitutional crisis before … what’s the procedure? Duck and cover? Emergency protests?
@brianschatz This is a Coup, isn't it? I can't believe that this is happening.

@brianschatz What do the people do to help? March? Protest? I'm really asking sir.

@brianschatz Emergency protests for impeachment now
— Trenchtown Rock (@TrenchtownTweet) May 9, 2017
Maybe … just maybe … the first thing to do is take a deep breath and reconsider the original premise.
@brianschatz No we aren't.

@brianschatz Not really, but thanks for pulling the fire alarm in a full theatre.

@brianschatz Nah, but you're clearly in full-fledged hyperbole.

@brianschatz Specifically which part of the constitution please sir? Given the " serve at the pleasure" bit.
— bigbaz (@LynchBaz) May 9, 2017
@brianschatz Nope. President can fire an appointed position. Senate will confirm next director.

@brianschatz Go read that document you were sworn to uphold again, schmuck.

@brianschatz You might want to take a fresh look at the Constitution.
FBI is part of the Executive Branch.
— Bea Johanssen (@bea_johanssen) May 9, 2017
@brianschatz Then, you should simply quit dishonoring your oath and start revering the Constitution and see if that helps YOUR problem.
