This would be a reasonable interpretation. Then again, those on the left have no capacity for being reasonable.  They see things that aren't there and any evidence which refutes their narrative drives them absolutely bonkers!  So be it;  It's time to move on

It's been reported that back in March when Trump said he'd been evesdropped on,Trump heard that Comey has told people that he's crazy and rather than simply presenting facts, Comey has been spinning the news about "the Russian Investigation".  Apparently, he's been saying behind closed doors that there is no investigation of Trump while not correcting the record and misleading the public for sheer political purposes  This is not the job of an Investigator, it is the activity of a politician who's trying to influence public opinion.  He bet Trump wouldn't have the balls to fire him, since he created this atmosphere of an apparent investigation of Trump.  Now it's time to cut through the bullshit!  Macabe's probably got him a parachute job with the Clinton Foundation!  Grin

Comey went astray when he started drawing conclusions on the facts that he was only supposed to compile. It was not his job to say there was no intent or precedent. He tried to be the entire Justice Dept rolled into one.

Earlier this week, Donald Trump fired James Comey, who as Director of the FBI was conducting an investigation into Trump’s role in a Russian attack against the United States in 2016. At the time, the Trump White House insisted that the firing of Comey was not an attempt to stifle the Russia investigation. However, the Acting FBI Director testified to Congress yesterday that Trump’s explanations of why and how the firing took place were inaccurate.
Last night, Trump put a nail in his own coffin by admitting on national television that yes, he fired James Comey because he was angry about the investigation into the links between Trump and Russian spies sent by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Trump declared, “In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it’s an excuse by the Democrats.'”
It is no longer conjecture that Trump fired Comey to try to stop the investigation of his collusion with a Russian attack against the United States. Trump himself confirmed it.
How can Republicans in Congress convene today without beginning the impeachment process? Sadly, they are likely to go forward in the same way that they have ignored all of the other astonishingly terrible things Donald Trump has done.
Donald Trump may be a corrupt, criminal, volatile, senile traitor, but he’s a Republican. So, we can count on Republicans in Congress to do nothing as this crisis grows.

Right or wrong. the POTUS can fire the head of the FBI without giving a reason.  In fact, he doesn't need to have a reason.

Also, if you have or you know of any evidence of collusion with the Russians by Trump, please share with us.  No one has been able to do that anywhere.  Send it to the dem Congresspeople, too.  They are in need of it before they look completely stoooopid  with their accusations and lack of evidence.

You DO understand that this is currently under investigation by Federal authorities, it is classified and you will NOT find this evidence posted on internet chat boards.  Right?

In fairness to Comey, he felt compelled to step out of his role and take over be his boss, Loretta Lynch after her meeting with the husband of the target of an FBI criminal investigation just prior to the FBI interview of her and her top Aidesl  He obviously thought himself capable of doing something that was far more political than what he was used to dealing with as the head of a purely investigative department.  This blew up in his face on July 7th for the entire world to see.  He has been playing politics ever since, trying to extricate himself for a quagmire which was created for him by Lorretta Lynch. AG Lynch, also tied his hands by granting immunity to all of the key witnesses.

Picture one of the many police shootings the media has had a frenzy over.  Imagine if the Police Investigator took over the role of the District Attorney and decided he wasn't going to prosecute, when it's not his job to make that decision.  Imagine if the reason he did this is due to the Prosecutor having met with the spouse of the officer who was being investigated, just before the police Investigators were scheduled to question the police officer.  Then imagine, this District Attorney granted immunity to all of the other police officers who were witnesses, before they were interviewed!

“What I did is I was going to fire Comey, my decision,” Trump said during an interview Thursday with NBC News’ Lester Holt. “I was going to fire regardless of recommendation."

I don't know how old you are, but were you a fan of Dragnet? 

Joe Friday best expressed the job of an Investigator with his "Just the facts Mam".  Police agencies use this to illustrate what is and what is not the job  The FBI are performing police functions as Law Enforcement Professionals (Police Investigators). Comey knows better!
