Donald Trump’s shocking decision this afternoon to fire FBI Director James Comey has come as a major surprise to everyone. Seven hours prior to the announcement, Comey had only a 2% chance of being fired by the end of June 2017. Anybody who was lucky enough to bet this afternoon on Comey being fired by the end of June at odds of 2%, has just earned an immediate 4,900% profit.
With all of the White House leaks that have occurred this year, it’s amazing that the odds of Comey being fired didn’t spike up big in the days leading up to today’s announcement. Clearly, it was an abrupt decision that Trump made today.
Prior to today, the odds of Comey being fired by the end of June 2017 had reached a previous record high of 34% back on March 5, 2017.
On that day, there were headlines in the news about Comey asking the Justice Department to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that President Obama ordered the tapping of his phones. Since that time, tons of evidence has been made public supporting Trump’s claim.
It has been proven that Susan Rice illegally unmasked Trump and his associates – and Obama most likely ordered her to do so. Despite this, the mainstream media has done everything possible to cover up the crimes of Susan Rice, and the FBI has shown no interest in investigating.
Politically, this was a brilliant move by Trump. As we are typing this update here in our office, we decided to turn on CNN to see how long it takes somebody to mention Russia. Not surprisingly, it took less than 30 seconds for somebody on CNN to spin Trump’s decision into being an attempted cover-up of the phony/fake Russian investigation.
Only one week ago, CNN was bashing James Comey and backing up Hillary Clinton’s claim that if the election was held on October 27th one day prior to the Senate receiving Comey’s letter – she would’ve won the election. They should be applauding Trump’s decision to fire Comey! Instead, they are pushing conspiracy theories that Comey was closing in on exposing that Trump colluded with Russia – somehow making themselves a bigger joke than ever before!
Who would’ve ever thought that RT America, the U.S. version of the so-called “Russian state-backed propaganda news organization” – would one day become the most credible and trustworthy cable news network?
