Donald Trump has dramatically fired the FBI Director after he misled the Senate by claiming Huma Abedin sent classified emails to Anthony Weiner
He writes to James Comey: 'You are hereby terminated and removed from office immediately.'
Comey found out on live TV screens in Los Angeles that he was being fired but thought it was a joke until he was briefed by his staff
He was later seen in his motorcade on a city interstate - in a bizarre parallel to O.J. Simpson - before boarding a private plane and shaking hands with officers
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote formal memo saying they had no confidence in him
Trump used letter dismissing Comey to say: 'I greatly appreciate you informing me, in three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation'
Chuck Schumer, Democrats' most senior figure said he had told President Trump that firing Comey was a 'very big mistake'
Democrats piled on by comparing Trump to Richard Nixon who fired top justice officials in the Saturday Night Massacre but Clinton aide said: 'No comment.'
New acting FBI director is Andrew McCabe - and he too is caught in the toxic impact of Clinton as his politician wife got cash from a Hillary ally
