While President Trump and his administration have generally had a rough start, the past week or so has been especially tumultuous. It began with the firing of FBI Director James Comey, a highly controversial move as Director Comey was investigating possible Trump campaign ties to Russia. Although it was reported from the White House that he was terminated due to his mishandling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Trump later stated in an interview that he had considered the Russia probe as a factor in Comey’s dismissal.

Most Democrats and some Republicans have come out against James Comey’s firing. The removal of a government official investigating the president’s actions seems to undermine democratic principles and has alarmed many. Some have called the action “Nixonian” in that it’s similar to the Saturday Night Massacre when President Richard Nixon fired the special prosecutor investigating the Watergate Scandal. Additionally, the existence of memos written by Director Comey, which could possibly contain incriminating information, has been revealed. One of the memos allegedly details Trump’s efforts in urging Comey to end the investigation into Michael Flynn, his former national security advisor. Furthermore, it has been discovered that President Trump divulged highly classified information from our Israeli allies to the Russians. This mishap could mar the United States’ reputation and erode trust the country has built with other nations.

President Trump’s latest actions have worried government officials and regular citizens alike. After jeopardizing foreign relations and obstructing justice, the competency of the president is under question. Whispers of impeachment have already begun within Congress and if more incriminating information is uncovered, Donald Trump may find himself out of the White House.
