Real Reason Trump Fired Comey: He Refused to Say Three Important Words, Sources Reveal

According to a source inside the White House, one of the reasons why former FBI Director James Comey was released Tuesday was because he would not publicly state that there were no links between the Trump administration and Russia.

A person with knowledge of the conversations about Comey’s dismissal told the Wall Street Journal that there was growing frustration among President Donald Trump’s associates that the former FBI director would not tamp down questions regarding the president’s alleged connection to Russia.

He refused to “Say those three little words: ‘There’s no ties,'” the source told Wall Street Journal about Trump’s decision to fire Comey without any notice. Comey was appointed back in 2013 and had not yet served 6 years of what should have been a 10-year term.

“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau,” the president wrote in a letter to Comey notifying him of his dismissal. “It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission.”

A White House source also said that Trump was upset about what he saw as the former director’s willingness to get in front of cameras and questioned whether Comey could be independent while having such a high media profile. Another White House aide described the former FBI director as a show horse.

“Oh, and there’s James — he’s become more famous than me,” Trump said to Comey during a January reception for law enforcement.
