“Jeff Toobin on CNN:”This is a gross abuse of power by the President. This is what happens in non-democracies. What kind of country is this?”

In a letter sent by the White House, Trump announced that Comey was fired on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
