Clip | 1m 25s

President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey Tuesday, citing his lack of trust in Comey’s ability to lead the nation’s top law enforcement agency. Critics have questioned the timing of Comey’s firing since one of the reasons given for the decision was Comey’s handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. The last time a president fired the FBI director was July 1993.
