He has Been Reporting on Comey’s Firing

Mattingly, an award-winning journalist, has been following the events involving Trump’s abrupt dismissal of Comey. The former FBI director was leading the investigation in the Trump-Russia case, but was immediately fired in a letter personally delivered to Comey. Former Clinton campaign press secretary, Brian Fallon called to speak to CNN to remind everyone that Comey was doing his job and was in the middle of investigating Trump for potentially colluding with Russia.

“Donald Trump is doing this to get out from under the Russia investigation,” Fallon said. “We need a special counsel inside the Justice Department who does not owe their job to Donald Trump to investigate Donald Trump. … Otherwise the firing of James Comey means we’ll never get to the bottom of allegations of collusion between Russia and the Trump camp.”

Mattingly has tweeted several posts from Trump critics, who find his actions unsettling. Senators, celebrities and even Edward Snowden himself believe that there’s something wrong with Trump terminating Comey’s employment, especially during an ongoing investigation he’s a part of.

There’s seems to be something rotten in the White House, and with all these different speculations, it’s time for an impartial, objective stance on the issue. But will we actually see one?
