Failing to recommend Crooked Hillary to be prosecuted is a good enough reason alone to fire now former FBI Director James Comey. Nonetheless, it is quite apparent that Comey’s politicization of the FBI was frustrating enough among the rank and file, that Comey had to go.
Former FBI Assistant Directors Weigh In On Comey’s Firing
“Jim Comey danced with the devil …”

Three former assistant directors of the FBI joined Fox News Tuesday night to share their thoughts on President Donald Trump’s decision to fire James Comey.
All three thought Comey had it coming, and some were glad to see it happen.
Former FBI Assistant Directors James Kallstrom, Bill Gavin and Ron Hosko all thought Comey sealed his fate after his July 5 press conference in which he assumed the role of a prosecutor and recommended no charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
“I’m glad it happened,” Kallstrom said of Comey’s firing. “I think Jim Comey way back almost a year ago kind of forgot he was the FBI director.”
“Jim Comey danced with the devil, and later on down the road talked about this great investigation the FBI conducted,” he said.
“Of course, they had no subpoena power, they couldn’t compel any investigation or search warrants. They had to beg people to look at things. The interview of Hillary Clinton, in my view, was a sham.”

Comey “threw the FBI under the bus, and the reputation of the FBI under the bus,” Kallstrom added. “That’s what I am very mad about and have been very mad about for a long time.”
Gavin said Comey’s firing was “something that had to happen.”
“Jim Comey is a bright guy, he’s an ethical guy, but the bottom line is when he made a prosecutive opinion in an investigative matter he made a mistake,” he added.
“We all make mistakes in life — this was a big one that was obvious to everyone.”
Hosko said Comey’s firing was “shocking” but he wasn’t surprised in the least bit.
“Certainly there are going to be some FBI who think [Comey] went too far back in July,” Hosko said. “I think, that is, reasonable minds can agree, the province of the prosecutor.”
He thought Comey was forced to “throw himself on a grenade” over former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s airport tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton. Comey’s firing was the “price he had to pay,” Hosko said.
