Dan Rather: Comey Firing ‘An Effort to Cover Up the Facts’

Written by  Ian Hanchett

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former CBS anchor Dan Rather commented on FBI Director James Comey’s firing by stating, “what’s going on here is an effort to cover up the facts.

Rather said, “Well, first of all, there’s something very Nixonian about all of this, not the least of which being…that President Trump fired the acting Attorney General, Ms. Yates. Then he fired the federal attorney in New York, Mr. Bharara. Then he fires Comey. What they all have in common, they were all investigating Donald Trump. Look, it’s no secret about what’s going on here, as several people have already pointed out, what’s going on here is an effort to cover up the facts. Why they’re so desperate to cover up the facts, we do not know.”

comey, was an administrator for the fib not an investigator. his being, replaced or fired does not affect any ongoing investigations. the investigation team, continues to collect case facts, regardless of who is the director of the fbi.
if anything the publicity stunts of comey, has made the fbi look questionable and tainted. since he has managed to anger, both major parties and a lot more than just 50 million americans.
if all of the investigators, were to be fired. only then, could you suspect any cover-up.

We are very familiar with Dan Rather "FACTS". I remember the Duval County, Texas, facts and the many facts brought forward. Anyone who listens to you as an authority has a very short memory.

Dan, You have far out served or out lived your purpose, take your pick. You need to ride off into the sunset, preferably over a cliff.

The number one fact, Dan, is that you are an asshole!

So Dan, then you must have a fact showing there is a coverup. Please, show us. No one trusts you or your media becaus it is obvious you have no interest in investigating anything. Your only interest is to act like you have done some investigation, and blab in front of a camera to hear yourself talk. You still don't get it. Even after Trump won, you still don't get it.

There's a reason he's called Dan Blather.

Dan Rather, you use the term "fact" rather loosely. Similar to Ms. Yates. Point a finger and say, "Bang"! As far as President Trump firing Comey or Yates that is his right and all new presidents do this including your king, Obama.

Rather is the man that made up lies against G W Bush and was fired for it, I find it hard to believe anything he says about any Republican. Trump fired Comey because he thought he was above reproach, not to cover up crap that Democrats WISH they could find so they can overthrow the legitimate government of the USA.

Seriously, people, it appears that the Speaker of the House might have a shot at the Presidency.

@JRD, the Constitution says Ryan does...in succession after the president and vice pres. As to the chance of it happening...likely less than the Clinton woman reaching sainthood.

Democrats. Democrats. Democrats. Yada, yada, yada. It's not the Democrats who are in the hot seat right now. It's Flip-Flopski Don and his Apparatchiki. Treason is a "high crime." One wonders if the Red Army Chorus knows the words to "So long, it's been good to know you?"

That's right: treason is a high crime. So why is Hillary still not in jail?

Hillary is not in jail because she's a lawyer, and she's not stupid. And Donald Trump standing up on a stage and leading the chant "Lock her up," is nothing more than bull-(expletive deleted).

The real cover up is Lying Crooked Killary, her cheating husband Bill along with broken hearted Hollywood and fake news reporters such as Dan Rather himself. Leave my President alone. He's drowning the swamp and Making America Great Again. He did the right thing by firing no intent Comey. Get this Comey, it was Trump's intent to give you all the rope you needed to hang yourself. Keep doing a great job Mr. President.

The democrats today are the biggest cowards on the face of the earth. They all said they wanted comey to be fired when someone actually had the balls to do it they all fry foul. The democrats today are without a doubt covering up their nonsense to keep their seats in the government. The only ones doing a lot of cover ups are the democrats and they are covering up for the real,crook Hillary and Obama
