President Donald Trump fired the FBI director and later explained in a news interview that part of the reason why the FBI director was fired was the ongoing Russian investigation against Trump and his campaign. Of course, when the firing was first announce the president said the real reason was the botched Hillary investigation by the FBI. He didn’t want to say that he fired a guy because he was tired of the guy investigating him for criminal wrongdoing. That would be . . . a crime! But eventually he stopped caring and admitted it–he fired Comey over the Russian investigation.
Even though Trump has now come right out and said that he fired Comey due to the investigation, republicans REFUSE to believe that the Russian investigation had anything to do with the firing. Trump tells them the reason right to their face and yet, they don’t believe it. His supporters seem unwilling to believe anything negative about Trump, even when he himself admits it.
