Obama aides want Comey out after email bombshell

In a last-minute effort to save Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House, Barack Obama’s chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has urged the president to fire FBI Director James Comey, according to a source close to Jarrett.

Obama and Jarrett are furious with Comey forreopening the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s emails just 11 days before the presidential election. They blame Comey for Clinton’s alarming slide in the polls.

“Valerie argued that Comey was interfering deliberately in the election process and had to be stopped,” the source said. “The president said he was worried about the consequences of taking such an action — the tsunami of outrage that would come his way, and possibly become a major footnote, or worse, in the history of his presidency.

“There is also the real possibility that such an action could backfire on the president and result in a Saturday Night Massacre,” the source said.

I don't want to hear it! When, in the history of our elections has a sitting president campaigned so vigorously , if at all, for the party's candidate. Get back to work, presbo. I'd rather you went golfing.

Oh, it would backfire alright. The weasels would really be ticked then. The FBI and law enforcement wouldn't do shat!

Firing Comey now would GUARANTEE the Tsunami for Donald Trump. The FBI rank & file would go rogue, leaking everything they have so far and Hillary would be a dunked witch.

Go ahead, make my day!

Jarrett said that he was interfering with the election. What she meant is that he was interfering with their interfering in what they think is their election.
