John Legend, Questlove and More React to FBI Director James Comey’s Firing: ‘Impeach Him’
In a shocking decision that has rocked the White House FBI Director James Comey was fired by Donald Trump yesterday (May 9).
While Trump has said Comey was fired because of how he handled Hillary Clinton’s email investigation, political analysts point out that the time of Comey’s firing is incredibly suspicious, given that he was leading the investigation of the Trump administration’s ties to Russia during the 2016 presidential election. In fact, analysts and reporters have compared the decision to Richard Nixon’s infamous Water Gate scandal.
As the situation continues to unfold—including a report from CNN stating that, “federal prosecutors have issued grand jury subpoenas to associates of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn seeking business records, as part of the ongoing probe of Russian meddling in last year’s election,” people have had a lot to say, including celebrities.
Take a look at celebrity reactions to Comey’s firing below.
