JAMES COMEY LEARNED HE WAS FIRED FROM TV, THOUGHT HE WAS PRANKED

Posted on Updated on

Comey (the first one boarding the plane) and his entourage were pictured getting on a private jet at Los Angeles International Airport shortly after he was called and told he had, indeed, been fired

 

Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday afternoon but Comey first learned of his termination on seeing it on TV while he was in Los Angeles talking to the agents . At first, Comey thought it was a ‘fairly funny prank’ before staff confirmed it after a letter from Trump was delivered to the FBI headquarters in DC, and Comey was finally read his termination letter over the phone. 

 

 

From Fox News:

James Comey, the FBI director fired Tuesday by President Trump, learned of his ouster while addressing agents at the FBI field office in Los Angeles, a source said.

Comey was talking to the agents when news of his firing appeared on televisions tuned in to news channels, a source told Fox News.

Television screens in the field office began flashing the news of his firing, and Comey initially chuckled at the report. He continued to brief the agents, finishing his speech before heading into a separate office.

Shortly after the speech, President Trump’s letter was given to FBI headquarters in Washington, The New York Times reported. Comey was set to be the keynote speaker at an FBI recruitment event in Los Angeles, but his motorcade brought him back to the airport.
