This is part of a deeply troubling pattern from the Trump administration. They fired Sally Yates, they fired Preet Bharara, and now they fired Director Comey, the very man leading the investigation. This does not seem to be a coincidence. The only way the American people can have faith in this investigation is for it to be led by a fearless, independent special prosecutor.
If Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein does not appoint an independent special prosecutor, every American will rightly suspect that the decision to fire Director Comey was part of a cover up.
