Trump Predictably Slams Comey Firing Backlash, White House Rejects Calls For Special Russia Prosecutor

From the right wing Washington Times:

In the wake of President Trump’s firing of FBI Director James B. Comey, the White House is rejecting lawmakers’ calls for a special prosecutor to take over the agency’s probe of possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

“There is clearly at this point no evidence of a reason to do that,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters late Tuesday night. “You have a system that’s working.” In a late-night tweet, Mr. Trump also criticized Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of New York, who is pushing for an independent prosecutor.

After Mr. Comey’s firing Tuesday, Democrats called for a special prosecutor and some high-profile Republicans said they were “troubled” by Mr. Trump’s decision.
