Guests: Michael Barber, Professor of Political Science, BYU; Brigham Daniels, Professor of Law, BYU President Trump says he fired the FBI director in response to the Attorney General’s recommendation that a “fresh start” is needed at the FBI. A memo, justifying the firing, points to Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation. The White House insists the dismissal had nothing to do with the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and possible Trump campaign ties to Russia.
