Comey heard the news of his sack by Trump on TV while giving speech in LA and thought it was a prank

FBI director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump, who said in a letter that Comey was being “terminated and removed” because he was “not able to effectively lead the bureau.

According to reports, Comey was addressing a group of F.B.I. employees in Los Angeles when a television in the background flashed the news that he had been fired.

In response, Comey laughed, saying he thought it was a fairly funny prank.

Then his staff started scurrying around in the background and told him that he should step into a nearby office.

Comey stopped addressing the group. He proceeded to shake hands with the employees he had been speaking to. Then he stepped into a side office, where he confirmed that he had been fired. At that point, he had not heard from the White House.

Shortly thereafter, a letter from Trump was delivered to the F.B.I.’s headquarters in Washington DC, just seven blocks from the White House.

Comey’s day had begun in Florida, where he spoke to a group of police officers. He then flew to Los Angeles, where he was also scheduled to speak at a diversity meeting.
