100PercentFedUp asks the tough questions:
Was the suspicious death of Vince Foster and the firing of Republican FBI Director William S. Sessions firing a coincidence? Did President Clinton need an FBI Director who was willing to look the other way when it came to the alleged criminal activities of the Clintons?Hm, I wonder.

OK, make that a "probably a coincidence".
.@realDonaldTrump fires Comey with no investigation after a week of "talking about it" https://t.co/rjJaIICLZ5 Afraid to call Comey— Yastreblyansky (@Yastreblyansky) May 11, 2017
.@realDonaldTrump (who learned about it from TV) and afraid to address the public (he's in hiding with Russian friends). And no cause. pic.twitter.com/D76XDecShU— Yastreblyansky (@Yastreblyansky) May 11, 2017
Or as Michael Cruse puts it in Politico Magazine,
And then he didn’t do the actual firing himself, which has been a feature of his management style through the years. He didn’t call Comey. He had Keith Schiller, his longtime bodyguard who now has the title of Director of Oval Office Operations, take his letter to Comey’s office. Famous for saying “You’re fired” on TV, Trump never has relished firing people in real life.

In instances, though, in which executive power is sufficient for actual action, he has been nobody but his imperious, impetuous, spiteful self. And here, according to the reporting of POLITICO and other news organizations, Trump made a fraught, monumental, republic-rattling decision the way he’s always made decisions—quickly—and for the same central reasons—vengeance and self-interest.That Cruse piece is pretty good.
