While many of us were highly suspicious of Donald Trump’s campaign and its unsettling relationship with Russia since the first days of the transition period, the day James Comey was suddenly fired without warning was when the scandal hit home for many Americans. Until then, the administration’s relationship with Russia could be rationalized, especially to the average American who wasn’t in step with politics or world affairs. After Comey was let go, it was clear that the problems, and Trump’s connections with Putin and his fellow oligarchs, didn’t end with Michael Flynn. The FBI suspected as much and opened its own investigation into the firing, fearing Donald Trump was a Russian asset.
It looked bad at the time, but now it looks even worse in the context of the Mueller report. Comey’s firing was initially blamed on his treatment of the Clinton email scandal, but the redacted version of the Mueller report suggests Comey wasn’t the only high ranking official targeted by Donald Trump.
