This is not good. If the GOPers let Trump fire the Director of the FBI without appointing a Special Prosecutor it will pretty much be a coup. Attorney General Sessions, already known as a bad actor with some kind of Russian entanglements, and the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, are giving Trump the cover by saying it was their recommendation. This is a very bad deal, not that we had a lot of love for Comey around here, but he did seem to be overseeing a thorough investigation into Trump collusion with the Russians. This is big and not good.
