Trump: Comey firing great day for America

United States President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the probe opened on him by some "corrupt" FBI leaders after the president fired then-director James Comey, as reported by The New York Times, was baseless. He went on to call Comey a "Crooked Cop" and a "total sleaze" who conducted a "rigged & botched" investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails affair.

The president wrote in a series of tweets: "Wow, just learned in the Failing New York Times that the corrupt former leaders of the FBI, almost all fired or forced to leave the agency for some very bad reasons, opened up an investigation on me, for no reason & with no proof, after I fired Lyin’ James Comey, a total sleaze! Funny thing about James Comey. Everybody wanted him fired, Republican and Democrat alike. After the rigged & botched Crooked Hillary investigation, where she was interviewed on July 4th Weekend, not recorded or sworn in, and where she said she didn’t know anything (a lie), the FBI was in complete turmoil (see N.Y. Post) because of Comey’s poor leadership and the way he handled the Clinton mess (not to mention his usurpation of powers from the Justice Department). My firing of James Comey was a great day for America. He was a Crooked Cop who is being totally protected by his best friend, Bob Mueller, & the 13 Angry Democrats - leaking machines who have NO interest in going after the Real Collusion (and much more) by Crooked Hillary Clinton, her Campaign, and the Democratic National Committee. Just Watch!"

The New York Times wrote on Friday that some law enforcement officials at the FBI opened an investigation into Trump's alleged collusion with Russia, just after he fired Comey.
