Krauthammer: Timing of Comey firing “inexplicable”

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Tuesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that the timing of President Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey is “inexplicable.”

“This is about – according to the letter by the deputy attorney general – this is about something that occurred on July the 5th. This, it, so we start out with something that is highly implausible,” Krauthammer said.

Krauthammer noted that if Trump had wanted to remove Comey from his position, he could have done it earlier.

“If that was so offensive to the Trump administration, what you would have done is in the transition you would have spoken with Comey and said we’re going to let you know. That’s when a president could very easily make a decision to have a change. That’s not unprecedented,” Krauthammer commented.
