WASHINGTON — Days before he was fired, James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, asked the Justice Department for a significant increase in money and personnel for the bureau’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the presidential election, according to three congressional officials who were briefed on his request.

Mr. Comey asked for the resources last week from Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who wrote the Justice Department’s memo that was used to justify the firing of Mr. Comey this week, the officials said.

Mr. Comey then briefed members of Congress on the meeting in recent days, telling them about his meeting with Mr. Rosenstein, who is the most senior law enforcement official supervising the Russia investigation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from that inquiry because of his close ties to the Trump campaign and his undisclosed meetings with the Russian ambassador.

The timing of Mr. Comey’s request is not clear-cut evidence that his firing was related to the Russia investigation. But it is certain to fuel bipartisan criticism that President Trump appeared to be meddling in an investigation that had the potential to damage his presidency.

The F.B.I. declined to comment. But Sarah Isgur Flores, the Justice Department spokeswoman, said “the idea that he asked for more funding” for the Russia investigation was “totally false.” She did not elaborate.

In his briefing with members of Congress, Mr. Comey said he had been frustrated with the amount of resources being dedicated to the Russia investigation, according to two of the officials. Until two weeks ago, when Mr. Rosenstein took over as deputy attorney general, the investigation was being overseen by Dana Boente, who was acting as the deputy and is now the United States attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

And he fired him dirty as hell on top of it; Comey in California in an FBI conference or something, and found out from the news that he was fired.

But, that's the only way Trump knows how to play, DIRTY.

SINCE COMEY WAS NO PRIZE TO HEAD THE FBI AS FAR AS JUSTICE WAS CONCERNED ANYWAY, WHO CARES. 

Yep.  This reminds me of the fable "London bridge is falling down...falling down..."  Except that Trump's men falling on their faces before they are in good...it's been five months!  Already this is the fourth man?  Although he wasn't chosen by Trump....he was used to win the election.  And then kicked to the curb.  What?  He didn't think it would happen?  And the inside of Trump's team is falling down....one after the other.  It is so much chaos going on in the White House....hopefully there is a secret secret service that comes in when something like this happens.  Cuz between him and Putin?  And all this other stuff?  Who knows.  Maybe Spicer will probably  be next to fired.  Cuz he hid from the press and they brought a woman in to answer questions.  So.  It's a matter of time.  And what I've been noticing in Cali...in my area...and some black folks are acting  antsy and picking on each other out of fear. I saw a fight on the sidewalk with people just walking by as  if it wasn't happening.  No patience.....in the hood.  People are being rude.  So.  It's in the air.  But!

That's about the size of it.

But, I personally do believe that a president's family [children, wife] should be off limits, (provided of course, that they hold no political post or/and are not out there making public political statements, etc.)

Besides, since women married to narcissitic, egotistical, maniacal men like Trump, are usually their slaves, he probably made her pose for pictures like that, and probably was the one who 'leaked' them to the media in the first place.

I agree but this image shows the depths of depravity racist white society is. 81% of white evangelicals voted for Trump. White Christians are racist as they come. They knew what kind of person Trump is and wanted someone that could do as much damage to the country as possible and express their anger because they had Black president for 8 years.

That's the thing that [non-racist] White people are not getting, that Trump was voted in by Racist White Americans [and their doormats] because of all of the racist rhetoric he spewed on his 'campaign' trail. and all of the racism in Trump's and his father's background, and because they knew Trump was a BIG racist.

The people that voted for Trump don't give a damn about America, America's economy, American jobs, or ANY of the other EXCUSES they gave for voting for Trump.

All White racists care about is their RACISM, their HATRED, their PSYCHOTIC SADISM, and HURTING, RUINING THE LIVES OF, AND MURDERING BLACK PEOPLE [and Brown people or anyone not White and any White person that is not racist too], and Trump's 'campaign' rhetoric told them if they elected him. they would be able to do all these things to Black people , or would see all these things happen to Black people [and Brown people, and anyone not White, and to any non-racist White people] with no repercussions.

In other words, Racist White people in America will sacrifice this whole damn country, America's entire economy, American jobs, the United States Constitution, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, and the Civil and Constitutional Rights of ALL Americans to satisfy their Racist psychosis.  

At this point, it's really up to White Americans who are TRUE Patriots, [and not (confederate) FAKE-patriots] to stop sitting on the sidelines, and get up off their asses and raise enough hell to put a stop to the RACIST, CONFEDERATE COUP D' ETAT that is Donald Trump's selection election.

It's now up to White people to help save America from being turned into an economically ruined Nazi Dictatorship Police State, because, hell, African Americans are tired of fighting and protesting, and sacrificing, and putting their lives on the line for the Civil and Constitutional Rights of ALL people in this country, while others sit on the sideline not doing or saying a damn thing, but surely reaping all the rewards for Freedoms, Liberty, Constitutional and Civil Rights that Black people continually raise hell, march, protest, and put their lives on the line for in this country.
