Mr. Comey certainly can be criticized for the way he handled the Clinton e-mails only days before last November's election. (Of at least equal culpability, however, were the press and media.)
But Mr. Comey was also making headlines for revealing that an investigation of possible ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign was underway.
It is said Comey is being fired for making misstatements at a Congressional hearing last week. To be fair, we must first evaluate this allegation.
But the leaving of James Comey would appear to cast a cloud over the Trump-Russia investigation.
