Per the Daily Mail, a source at the White House familiar with Obama’s decision said it happened after lengthy discussions between Jarrett and Obama. According to this source, Obama was furious with Comey for reopening the case just 11 days before the election only to find nothing worth pursuing just nine days later.
Or two days before the election.
Now, this could be all speculation as there is no evidence of Obama firing Comey, but if the source close to the situation at the White House is right?
