Donald Trump's Original "You're Fired" Letter To James Comey

Posted September 03, 2017

Following the letter's circulation, however, White House counsel Donald F. McGahn prevented the president from sending that particular letter because it was too "problematic".

People familiar with the letter said Trump provided the contents of the letter, which was formally drawn up by Miller at Bedminster. "What we don't know is exactly what McGahn said and what his concerns were".

He argues, "One important implication that you can draw from the fact that they sent the memo is that they believe that Mueller is seriously looking at obstruction".

That element "is the hardest to prove, because it depends on showing an improper motive", the experts said.

The man Donald Trump sent to hand-deliver the infamous letter firing then-FBI Director James Comey in May is planning to leave the president's side after almost 20 years of service. After vetting this letter with his attorneys, the President was advised NOT to send it.

Trump could then defend himself by saying he had no corrupt or criminal intent and was simply following McGahn's advice, Marrioti explained.

In May, Trump was critical of Comey's leadership at the FBI and often took to Twitter each time a new revelation was made in the ongoing investigations - and called it "Witch hunt".

One week after Comey was sacked, Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel to oversee an investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

This week, documents emerged offering an insight into special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation. "A pivotal point for his presidency, and not a good one".

Paraphrasing the letter, the administration official said Mr. Trump wanted this message sent: "You've told me three times I'm not under investigation but you won't tell the world, and it's hampering the country".

A subsequent letter written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was used instead as the basis to terminate Comey. It focused on Mr Comey's handling of Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server.
