Well, now we know why Trump fired Comey

First Interaction

“Am I under investigation?”

“No, sir, you are not”

“Could you maybe let everyone know that?”

“I’ll see what I can do”

Second Interaction

“Look, if anybody on my team did something wrong, they need to be held to account. But I know I did nothing wrong, and you told me I am not even under investigation. Is that still true?”

“Correct, sir, you are not under investigation”

“Could you please find some way to say that in public?”

“I’ll see what I can do”

Third Interaction

“One more time: Am I under investigation?”

“No, sir, you are not”

“Then, as we discussed, could you please let the people know that?”

“Maybe you should talk to the Deputy AG”

Fourth Interaction

Letter to the Director
