Trump demanded loyalty from FBI director James Comey — ‘Comey demurred’ and then he was fired: NYT

The New York Times reported Thursday night that former FBI director James Comey attended a “very nice dinner” with President Donald Trump. During that dinner, Trump demanded that Comey be loyal to him and Comey objected for ethical reasons. It wasn’t long before Comey was being given his pink slip by Trump.

While the two had dinner Trump “made small talk about the election” and the size of his crowd at his rallies. He then turned to has “the” question that would end with the firing of the FBI director.

Comey reportedly “declined to make that pledge.” Comey told the story to others that he pledged that he would always be honest with Trump but that he was not “‘reliable’ in the conventional political sense.”
