Giám đốc FBI bị cách chức
May 9, 2017
WASHINGTON, DC (NV) – Ông James Comey, giám đốc FBI, vừa bị Tổng Thống Donald Trump cách chức hôm Thứ Ba, theo đề nghị của Bộ Tư Pháp, CNN trích lời giới chức Tòa Bạch Ốc cho biết.
Ông Comey lâu nay là trung tâm điểm của những chuyện lộn xộn liên quan đến cuộc bầu cử tổng thống năm ngoái, nhất là vụ ứng cử viên Hillary Clinton sử dụng email riêng.
Trong cuộc bầu cử năm ngoái, ông Comey nói rằng ông có thể tái điều tra vụ email.
Thông báo của ông được đưa ra ngày 29 Tháng Mười, 2016, chỉ 10 ngày trước ngày bầu cử.
Trước đó, hồi Tháng Bảy, ông nói ông quyết định không truy tố bà.
Hồi tuần trước, trong một hội nghị tại New York, bà Clinton nói rằng một trong những lý do bà thua ông Donald Trump là vì lá thư của ông Comey nói có thể tái điều tra vụ email.
Mới đây, trong một buổi điều trần tại Quốc Hội, ông Comey lại đưa thông tin không chính xác về vụ email, khi được các thượng nghị sĩ chất vấn.
Hôm Thứ Ba, FBI gởi thư đến Ủy Ban Tư Pháp Thượng Viện, xác nhận chuyện ông Comey khai không đúng, và không đưa ra bất cứ lời xin lỗi nào.
Khoảng vài giờ sau, Tổng Thống Trump quyết định cách chức ông.
Theo CNN, Tổng Thống Trump đưa ra quyết định này theo đề nghị của Bộ Trưởng Tư Pháp Jeff Sessions và Thứ Trưởng Bộ Tư Pháp Rod Rosenstein. (Đ.D.)

President Trump fires FBI Director James Comey

President Trump abruptly fired embattled FBI Director James Comey late Tuesday afternoon for mishandling the feds’ probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, a top Justice Department official said.
“The FBI’s reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage, and it has affected the entire Department of Justice,’’ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote in a memo explaining Comey’s dismissal. “I cannot defend the director’s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken. Almost everyone agrees that the director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.’’
Trump also issued a statement, saying the FBI needed fresh leadership.
“The FBI is one of our nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement,” Trump said in a statement.
Trump acted based on the recommendations of both Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who also slammed Comey in a memo released by the White House.
“I have concluded that a fresh start is needed at the leadership of the FBI,’’ Sessions wrote. “I must recommend that you remove Director James B. Comey, Jr. and identify an experienced and qualified individual to lead the great men and women of the FBI.’’
The president also sent a letter breaking the news to Comey, who headed the agency as it was investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and administration to Russia, a probe that remains ongoing.
“I received the attached letters from the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommending your dismissal as the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have accepted their recommendation and you are hereby terminated and removed from office effective immediately,” Trump wrote.
He then expressed his appreciation to Comey for telling him he was not the target of an FBI investigation.
“While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the bureau,” Trump wrote.
“It is essential that we find new leadership for the FBI that restores public trust and confidence in its vital law enforcement mission,” Trump added before wishing the Yonkers native “the best of luck in your future endeavors.”

Modal Trigger

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) chairman of the Senate Subcommittees on Crime & Terrorism, called it a difficult decision but backed the move.
“I appreciate Director Comey’s service to our nation in a variety of roles,” Graham said.
“Given the recent controversies surrounding the director, I believe a fresh start will serve the FBI and the nation well. I encourage the President to select the most qualified professional available who will serve our nation’s interests.”
The White House said the search for a new FBI director will begin immediately.
The White House made the stunning announcement shortly after the FBI corrected a sentence in Comey’s sworn testimony on Capitol Hill last week. Comey told lawmakers that Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton, had sent “hundreds and thousands” of emails to her husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop, including some with classified information.
On Tuesday, the FBI said in a two-page letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that only “a small number” of the thousands of emails found on the laptop had been forwarded there while most had simply been backed up from electronic devices.
Most of the email chains on the laptop containing classified information were not the result of forwarding, the FBI said.
Comey had come under intense criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for his handling of Clinton’s email probe.
Clinton supporters said he cost her the election with his 11th-hour announcement that he was reopening the probe into the emails after they were found on Weiner’s computer.
Republicans accused him of going soft on Clinton, when they wanted prosecuted for sending classified material on her private server.
Comey, 56, was nominated by President Obama for the FBI post in 2013 to a 10-year term.
Praised for his independence and integrity, Comey has spent three decades in law enforcement and has been no stranger to controversy.
Spokesman Sean Spicer had hedged just hours earlier that he was unaware of any signs that Trump had lost confidence in Comey.
“I have no reason to believe — I haven’t asked him. So I don’t — I have not asked the president since the last time we spoke about this,” he said. “I don’t want to start speaking on behalf of the President without speaking to him first.”
