Trump Melts Down Over NYT Russia/Spy Report

The New York Post reports:

President Trump on Saturday morning called his firing of former FBI Director James Comey “a great day for America.”

The comment came in a tweetstorm voicing outrage over a recent New York Times report saying days after the May 2017 firing, the FBI opened an inquiry into whether Trump was “secretly working on behalf of Russia.”

The Friday report in the Times said in addition to probing whether Trump was working for Moscow, the FBI investigation was meant to examine whether Comey’s firing amounted to obstruction of justice.
