John Oliver Dissects the Whole James Comey President Trump Thing

On Last Week Tonight With John Oliver, Oliver discussed the termination of former FBI Director James Comey.

After a week of unbelievable news becoming reality, late night hosts across the political spectrum criticised Donald Trump over the firing of James Comey.

"I call bullshit. I call turbo bullshit on that", said Oliver. "And if you don't, it's no longer on Trump - it's on you".

According to the White House, Comey was sacked late Tuesday on the recommendation of the deputy attorney general Rob Rosenstein.

Oliver believes what's important here is not just that Comey confirmed before his firing that there's an ongoing FBI investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

But do I want to know about business ties? "At this point, I have not asked and I'm not fully aware of this", Spicer said. Clapper Jr. testified about former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's role with Russian Federation .

However, Trump "undid two days of damage control in just a few sentences", Oliver said, after he sat down for an interview with NBC's Lester Holt and explained that he had planned to fire Comey all along. "What are you doing?"

Oliver gave his own summary of the back-and-forth that could have occurred between Comey and Trump and expressed that it's almost impossible for Trump to surprise him at this point. "'I was thinking of the Russian Federation investigation when I fired Comey' is the one thing that you are not supposed to say out loud". Oliver also noted Rosenstein - in light of Sessions' supposed recusal from anything having to do with Russian Federation - could "appoint a special counsel within the Justice Department", or what is most often referred to as a "special prosecutor." Sen.

Oliver ended the Comey segment by targeting a Republican-controlled Congress for not standing up to Trump, with a special tirade reserved for House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) for giving "nonanswers" when it comes to the president.

"But at the very, very least here, they need to acknowledge that what has happened is f--ed up and not continue to give non-answers", Oliver said of Congress.

"The point is, the founding fathers created a system of checks and balances to limit the power of the president", Oliver added.
