Trump has canceled a visit to FBI headquarters after it was made clear that if the President showed up, he would not be warmly received.
NBC News reported, “The White House has abandoned the idea of President Trump visiting FBI headquarters after being told he would not be greeted warmly, administration officials tell NBC News. And FBI agents said that, while many of them voted for Trump after the president unceremoniously fired a very popular director James Comey few were ready to meet him at the bureau with open arms.”
Trump and the White House continue to suggest that Comey had lost the rank and file of the FBI. Today, at the White House daily press briefing, Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed that she has heard from many people in the FBI who were happy that Comey was gone.
All of this was a lie. Comey was very popular with those who work for the FBI, and it is a very bad sign for Trump that Bureau doesn’t want him to show him to show his face at their headquarters. Trump has continually picked fights with the US intelligence community, and the firing of Comey could back to have impeachable consequences for this president and his administration.
