CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin is fed up with President Donald Trump!
Toobin blasted the president over firing FBI Director, James Comey. “This is a grotesque abuse of power, by the President of the United States,” Toobin, CNN’s senior legal analyst said to Wolf Blitzer.
“This is the kind of thing that goes on in nondemocracies,” Toobin continued. “That when there is an investigation that reaches near the president of the United States, or the leader of a nondemocracy, they fire the people who are in charge of the investigation.
The termination of Comey was without further explanation according to the press release by White House
“The president has accepted the recommendation of the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General regarding the dismissal of the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Sean Spicer told reporters the same day.
Toobin said that he had never seen anything comparable since 1973 when President Richard Nixon fired Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor for the Watergate scandal.
