President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to slam Democrats and their supporters for faux outrage over FBI head James Comey’s firing, when for months on end they have been calling for him to be removed from office.

“Now they play so sad!” Trump tweeted, noting that it has been Democrats who displayed the most outrage at Comey over his role in the Hillary Clinton Email scandal.

After calling for Comey to be removed for reopening the investigation into Clinton’s homebrew email server just days prior to the election, and for generally not doing a very good job as FBI head, many on the left are now suggesting that Comey’s firing is some sort of cover up by the Trump White House, in order to put the brakes on the investigation into alleged links between Trump’s election campaign and the Russian government.

In reality, Democrats were for the firing of Comey before they were against it.

Earlier this year, Democrats were up in arms following a closed-door briefing with Comey describing the FBI head as “contentious” and “combative.” Many were said to have walked out of the meeting.

“My confidence in the FBI director’s ability to lead this agency has been shaken,” said Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.).

“The FBI director has no credibility,” said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) following the briefing:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, was reportedly “outraged” at Comey, and complained that “One standard was applied to the Russians and another standard applied to Hillary Clinton.”

Pelosi even suggested that Hillary Clinton would fire Comey if she won the election, saying “Maybe he’s not in the right job.”

Yet now Pelosi is calling for “an independent, bipartisan commission” following Comey’s firing.

“The President’s sudden and brazen firing of the FBI Director raises the ghosts of some of the worst Executive Branch abuses,” Pelosi said in a statement. “We cannot stand by and watch a cover up of the possible collusion with a hostile foreign power to undermine American democracy.”

Right. So now Hillary lost, Comey’s previously justifiable dismissal is some sort of complex conspiracy. Ok.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also suggested Tuesday that the decision to fire Comey was indicative of a “cover-up.”

Yet on November 2nd, Schumer told reporters “I do not have confidence in him [Comey] any longer,” and called Comey’s letter to Congress regarding Clinton’s emails “appalling.”

Hillary Clinton herself still blames Comey for losing the election. She even said LAST WEEK “If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president. It wasn’t a perfect campaign, but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Comey’s letter and Russian WikiLeaks. The reason why I believe we lost were the intervening events in the last 10 days.”

Hillary aide John Podesta described Comey as ‘nauseating’ during the investigation into Clinton, yet now the FBI head has been fired by Trump, Podesta also seems to think it’s a nefarious plot.

Before:

After:

Podesta was citing the so called ‘Saturday Night Massacre’, when then-President Richard Nixon fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox, and accepted the resignations of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus after both men refused to fire Cox on the President’s behalf.

Other Democrats who have made the exact same comparison, include Senate Intelligence Committee member Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

“President Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director Comey smacks of President Nixon’s Saturday Night Massacre. If this is an effort to stop the investigations into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, it won’t succeed,” said Heinrich. While, Wasserman Schultz said “the reasoning and timing behind this firing is absolutely preposterous and unbelievable,” and that “It smacks of a Nixon-esque cover up of President Trump’s Kremlin ties.”

The fake news media is also running wild with the conspiracy theory that Trump is offing those who are investigating him.

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin reiterated the Watergate comparison, noting “This doesn’t happen in the United States except on October 20, 1973, when Richard Nixon fired Archibald Cox.”

“They will put in a stooge who will shut down this investigation,”Toobin claimed. “Now Donald Trump will put in maybe Chris Christie. Someone who will do his bidding.”

Everything regarding Trump is a conspiracy to Democrats now… even CNN itself admits it:

Trump also responded to a CNN report that suggested Roger Stone was influential on the decision to fire Comey, a theory Trump described as “fake news.”
