This is a simple question and the American people deserves an answer. We have a he said he said situation where Trump say the FBI was in disarray while Comey said everything is great. Which is it?
It should not be hard to get an answer. I am pretty sure the FBI has a human resource department. They must have data on the morale of the rank and file agents. Why doesn't Congress ask for the data and tell the American people. We have a right to know how well our government agencies are performing. It would settle the question of whether Comey's firing was justified separate from politics.
Everyone knows that the response of conservative or liberal government employees is to go into hiding at times of liberal leadership or opposing views , BUT THE POLITICIZATION of Obama's administration head offices of all the DOJ, FBI, IRS ,ATF ......very unusual .........must have actually silenced ANY opposition at all, even from disagreeing liberals !
This mess today Is CAUSED by POLITICIZATION of all offices of Justice , A raising of the Blindfold of the lady at the scales and then one finger pushing hard on one side of those scales .
Your question was answered long ago by Acting FBI Director McCabe who, at a Senate intelligence hearing, said "Director Comey enjoyed broad support within the FBI and still does today. We have a diversity of opinions about many things but I can confidently tell you the vast majority of FBI employees enjoyed a deep and positive connection to Director Comey." He later added: "I don't believe there was a crisis of confidence in the FBI."
I am sorry but you can't rely on what the deputy director has to say about his boss or the agency he runs... If he said anything else, I would be shocked. The point being, the data exists somewhere. Can't Congress get to the bottom of this? It seems real odd that a few months ago, every democrat was calling for Comey's resignation and saying he has lost the confidence of the people and yet, he is doing a good job? The two concept can't be both true...
The Obama Administration prosecuted more leakers than any administration before. Now, the former Director of the FBI confessed to being a leaker. He betrayed his oath to the Constitution.
The Democrats use to hate leakers, but now they love Comey, who they wanted fired only months ago before he got fired, then they changed their minds about that too because Hillary didn't get to fire Comey.
I heard that after Comey did not call for Hillary to be prosecuted for the crimes he made known publically, that many of the FBI members did not show up for work for days after that stunt. Moral was not high after that in the FBI, how could it be.
I wished some of the Senators had asked Comey yesterday about the morale issue at the FBI. Did some of your agents submit their resignation letters and how many? After the Hillary email press conference? The credibility of some of our basic government agencies, FBI, NSA, CIA, IRS and VA are on the line...If we can't rely on the FBI director to tell the truth, who can we rely on? The leaking is totally unacceptable. It might be fine for a whistleblower to leak fearing reprisals but not the head of the FBI.
Democrats have been trying to frame President Trump for interference in an investigation, but that backfired too. Comey ended up testifying that AG Lynch interfered in the Clinton investigation. ... She wanted the "investigation" renamed to a "matter, which Comey then changed his language to call an FBI criminal investigation to a matter.
So, Comey became the Director of the FBM, not the FBI.
I'm not sure he deserves to be called an American.
Comey testified that Lynch pressured him on the Clinton investigation. There should be an investigation into that whole ignominious failure.
"I'm not sure he deserves to be called an American."
Your desperation is showing. James Comey is a flawed human being, as are we all, but to question whether he deserves to be called American while defending a known liar is sick.
Retired FBI agents were saying sometime ago that they thought Comey was a dirty cop. He proved them right with his testimony. Comey was a dirty cop by his own testimony. He betrayed his oath to the Constitution.
There are at least four or five new investigations that AG Sessions needs to open up because of Comey's testimony. Trump is vindicated, and never was under investigation according to Comey.
Time to end this political football game!

(But, you won't get the real news on liberal fake media)
You must be all government employees , tenured in fact because not many liberals here especially have an inkling of understanding in employer - employee relations . Go apply for a job any job and if you're not hired or if your previous employment is questioned bu the "new boss ", AND you are fired ,
Guess what , That's life.
