But why fire Comey now? The answer is simple. The day before, President Barack Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper repeated, under oath, what he told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Meet the Press on March 5 — that he had seen no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. That gave the Trump administration the breathing room to dismiss Comey — which it simply did not have before.
There was never any evidence of Russian collusion or interference with the 2016 presidential election, there isn’t any evidence now, there won’t ever be any evidence because it didn’t happen, period.
