WASHINGTON D.C. — James Comey was fired as the director of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations.

U.S. President Donald Trump fired Comey, who was leading a counterintelligence investigation into the 2016 Presidential Election and whether Russia may have influenced its outcome. According to officials close to the removal of Comey, the decision came as the result of conclusions from the U.S. Justice Department. The reason given for the firing of Comey was his mishandling of the FBI probe into the private e-mail server of Democratic Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. Comey announced that there was an investigation into the matter days before the general election occurred. Some politicians believed that the removal of Comey was appropriate.

"Director Comey has served the country well in a number of different roles. Many, including myself, have questioned his actions more than once over the past year, said Senator Roy Blount (R, Montana). "I believe new leadership at the FBI will restore confidence in the organization and among the people who do the hard work to carry out its mission."

Not all politicians were happy with the decision, however. Some Democrats called for a special investigator.

"It is an abuse of power if the FBI was in fact investigating the president of the United States. For the president to fire someone who has him under active investigation is in my view an abuse of power," said Senator Richard Blumenthal (D, Connecticut). "If there was every any doubt about the need for a special independent prosecutor, which I've been advocating for months, there is no question now."
