Of course Donald Trump wants the FBI Director James Comey to stay on the job. After all, Comey dealt Hillary Clinton a near-fatal blow days before the presidential election. Comey announced the news, but he may have forgotten a golden Trump rule: the big man likes to make his  own announcements.

Comey announced the results of his own probe into Clinton’s email server this summer. He made no mention of his investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russian contacts, which was a parallel FBI investigation.

Comey said that Clinton’s actions were “extremely careless.” Keep in mind, that the FBI is to merely present the facts, not give opinions. Comey continued, saying that the FBI concluded that it did not find any evidence she meant to violate the law, and it recommended no charges against Clinton, according to ABC News.

Trump was not happy with Comey’s conclusion and sent out a statement immediately calling the FBI part of a “rigged system,” ABC News reported. The man who would be president said:

‘Because of our rigged system that holds the American people to one standard and people like Hillary Clinton to another, it does not look like she will be facing the criminal charges that she deserves.’

With only 11 days to go until Election Day, Comey sent the legislators a rare letter stating that the FBI had discovered “existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.”

During a separate investigation into New York’s former Representative Anthony Weiner, the FBI supposedly found some emails from his estranged wife Huma Abedin to Clinton. Abedin has been a longtime close aide to the former secretary of state.

This stunned the Democrats, because Comey once again stepped out of his role. The news delighted Trump. The FBI Director’s statement to Congress broke a long-standing tradition to avoid actions that could influence elections.

Then two days before the presidential election, Comey released a second letter to Congress basically saying “never mind.” Of course, that letter reminded late voters about the issue once again.

The Justice Department inspector general notified the public that he would open an investigation into Comey’s actions and the FBI’s handling of Clinton’s investigation. It will consider whether he complied with the FBI department procedures and policies.

Trump hugged Comey on camera during a White House reception honoring law enforcement leaders. Trump said:

‘He’s become more famous than me.’

That is not smart, Comey.
